It is never acceptable to shame someone for the way they look or the body they have and they were born in. We should all love who we are and the way we look and also we should feel good and beautiful in our skin even when rude and inappropriate comments are being made. Everyone should feel confident and happy in their skin. Some of the celebrities who slammed their body shamers helped us realize that, courtesy of Diply.
1. Jennifer Aniston
The 48-year-old star, who played our beloved Rachel in Friends, wrote a public letter after being scrutinized in the media. “For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of ‘journalism,’ the ‘First Amendment’ and ‘celebrity news.’”
“The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing.” She continued: “The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty.”
2. Emma Stone
The La La Land star admits that she is constantly affected by the negative comments made about her appearance for being “too thin.”
In a new interview with USA Today, Ema said: “I’ve seen a lot of comments that say, ‘Eat a sandwich’ or ‘She looks sick.’ I’ve been looking at myself in the mirror being mean to myself. I’m not sick. I eat sandwiches.”
“We’re always too skinny or too fat or too tall or too short. It bothers me because I care so much about young girls. We’re shaming each other and we’re shaming ourselves, and it sucks.”
And we couldn’t agree more. The women should be empowering each other and not shaming them
3. Jennifer Lawrence
The 27-year-old star of The Hunger Games has learned not to accept the standards society has developed over the years.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has revealed: “I was young. It was just the kind of sh*t that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.”
So, the actress doesn’t let it affect her anymore.
“I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f*ck yourself.’”
4. J.K. Rowling
Our beloved 52-year-old author of The Harry Potter books tweeted a photo of herself standing with Serena Williams, and received rude comments saying Williams is “built like a man.”

The 21-year-old Oakland-born actress wasn’t glad when the comedian Julie Klausner shamed her on Twitter, calling her a “thinspo model for your impressionable tweens.”
Also, another of Klausner’s tweets said: “You don’t have to have an eating disorder to attend the Kids’ Choice Awards….but it helps!”

7. Ashley Graham
The stunning 30-year-old model, in a 2016 Lenny Letter, Graham responded to comments online claiming: “You used to be a role model and I looked up to you,” and “You don’t love the skin you’re in, you want to conform to Hollywood, you believe being skinnier is prettier.”

“I haven’t lost a pound this year. In fact, I’m actually heavier than I was three years ago, but I accept my body as it is today.”
You can read all about her views on personal beauty in her memoir A New Model.

8. Alanna Masterson
The 29-year-old American actress, who plays in The Walking Dead, was attacked about her weight after having a baby.
“Dear Instagram trolls,” the actress wrote on Instagram, “I hope that you don’t have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance.”

“I hope they learn that it isn’t ok to make fun of people or call people names. Nursing a baby for a year is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling.”
We would all like to see them trying to handle this while working a full-time job. Bye, Felicia!
