Known for her witty remarks, Chrissy Teigen's response to a particular Twitter user who turned the former Sports Illustrated model's behind into an offensive meme in 2019 was nothing short of brilliant.
The meme read: "When it suddenly hits you that your lady doesn't have any ASS", accompanied by a paparazzi photo of Teigen in a swimsuit, holding her daughter Luna at a side profile, while her husband, John Legend, looked on.
In her response, Teigen tweeted: "It's been 13 years, and he knew the first night we met :)."
"Everyone so used to ass shots and photoshopped Instagrams. I've had no ass forever—is this new news to some of you?"
After Beyoncé was body shamed, she did what she does best: write a smash hit song to remind women that there's nothing wrong with their bodies, of course. Doing just that, Destiny's Child "Bootylicious" was born. Queen Bey co-wrote the track following backlash she'd been receiving for her fluctuating weight at the time.
"I wrote that because, at the time, I'd gained some weight and the pressure that people put you under, the pressure to be thin, is unbelievable. I was just 18 and you shouldn't be thinking about that," she said in an interview with Shape magazine.
"You should be thinking about building up your character and having fun, and the song was just telling everyone to forget what people are saying, you're bootylicious. It's a celebration of curves and a celebration of women's bodies."
On May 14, 2020, the POOSH founder kindly clapped back against an Instagram user who commented "SHE'S PREGENANT [sic] 🎉🎉" on a photo of her reclining in a bikini.
"This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it. I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body," she commented in response.
Kardashian elaborated on the incident in a POOSH YouTube video a week later, saying that "we're all shaped differently" and that she tries not to let such comments get to her.
"I commented back and said, 'This is the shape of my body. I gained a few pounds over this quarantine time and I love my body and I'm proud of my shape and I'm obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body.' I don't think I look pregnant at all," she said.
"We're all shaped differently and that's my body and I'm proud of it so that's how I respond to the negative comments. It's not always easy."
"Sometimes I can be more sarcastic but I think kill them with kindness is my motto and try not to let those comments affect you and if they do and you know that, then don't look at comments. I know it's easier said than done, but really try to keep the positivity for your mental health."
The reality star and entrepreneur penned an essay in 2016, to tackle the unfair backlash she'd received over posting nude photos of herself to social media.
In a quote via Entertainment Weekly, "I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin," she wrote on her website on International Women's Day in 2016.
"It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming—it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me."
Rihanna swiftly silenced body shamers who took to Twitter to criticise her physique, saying that the star had to have been "pregnant" following her 2018 Grammy Award performance.
The musician and beauty mogul clapped back with a single, well-timed meme on Instagram featuring rapper Gucci Mane at different sizes, including the words: "If you can't handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don't deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane".
The Hunger Games star clapped back at body shaming producers who told her she that was "fat" and that she'd "get fired" if she didn't lose weight. However, her response was classic J-Law.
"If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f**k yourself'," she told Harper's BAZAAR U.K. (quote via The Guardian)
The actress went onto reveal the brutal way in which the producers tried to convince her to go on a diet.
"They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn't still hurt me," she said.
Despite being widely regarded as one of the fittest women in Hollywood, the Hustlers star was told early in her career that she had to lose weight if she wanted to work.
"They kept telling me to lose weight," Lopez told E! in 2016.
"And I was a dancer, and I was athletic and even my manager at the time, who I no longer work with, um, was telling me, 'You need to lose weight. You need to be thinner'."
Pushing back, Lopez said: "I was like, 'No I don't. If I lose any more weight it won't be me.' You know what I mean?"
A former volleyball player, Hadid has opened up on multiple occasions about being told she didn't have a "runway body" because she looked too athletic.
"[Jean Paul Gaultier] was the first designer that let me walk on a runway in Paris, it was in his last ready-to-wear show," told i-D magazine in February 2020.
"At the time, I was still starting out in my career, I was coming out of high school, I still had my volleyball body."
"I knew how hard I worked to have those muscles, to be curved in those places—I kind of miss it now," she added. "At the time, people were hard on me and tried to say that I didn't have a runway body."
The model, who in 2016 revealed she suffers from Hashimoto's disease, also slammed body shamers in 2015 in a lengthy Instagram post, writing:
"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in shows... I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before, and I'm very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it's art; it can never stay the same. It's 2015. But if you're not one of those people, don't take your anger out on me."
Despite her scars being a product of a vital kidney transplant, apparently online body shamers had a problem with it, after she posted a bikini photo in March 2018.
Gomez, however, responded with kindness, sharing a post with the caption:
"The beauty myth—an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfil society's impossible definition of flawless beauty. I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails. 🌈💜"
Adele's history with body shaming is far too long, having suffered from the vitriol of online body shamers for far too long. However, in one of her most notable shutdowns, she called out the sexism inherently involved in commenting on or asking about women's bodies and weight.
"I've always been asked questions about my body and my weight and my size and my style and stuff like that," she told 60 Minutes Australia in 2015.
"It's a little bit annoying that men don't get asked that question as much. But other than that it seemed to astound people that I was plus size and being successful, that was how I felt."
The rumours circulating around whether or not the Riverdale star was pregnant, began online in 2018 following a photo of her and her co-star boyfriend Cole Sprouse on social media. And even though Reinhart didn't own anybody an explanation, Reinhart's response certainly shut things down.
"It's unfortunate that one unflattering photo of my stomach circulating the internet causes hundreds of people to think that I'm pregnant," she wrote in her Stories.
"Nope. Not pregnant," she continued.
"My body is something that I will NEVER apologise for. My body will constantly go through change. And so will yours. And that's fine. So let's not put so much time and effort into caring about a stranger's figure."
