Yet again, body-shaming continues to plague the rich and famous. No matter how you appear, someone somewhere will always find that you do not FIT their standards of beauty. It’s not really about how large you are or how thin you are, haters will be haters.
Bollywood actress Sridevi’s daughter – Khushi, has slammed body-shamers on Instagram for writing hurtful things. Well, not everyone can take things with a pinch of salt, but, well done girl! Here is what she had to say –
“I post my pictures because I feel good and confident. I put out these pictures not because I want to show off or try to be anyone or anything else. I have my own sense of style and my own way to think and me putting out a picture that’s accessible to so many people is taken more of an opportunity to judge me or my looks, clothes or anything else. I put something out there because it’s something I feel good about, everyone is entitled to have their own opinion but putting someone else down because of it is not making you any better of a person. Please think twice before you decide to comment something rude or offensive, it’s not a joke. It’s sad how in this day and age where feminism is finally getting the attention it deserves, girls still feel the need to tear each other down and indulge in body shaming.”
“I don’t care if you think my stomach pops out or if I don’t fit into your idea of beautiful, but for your own conscience please realize that having such narrow minded opinions of people makes you an ugly person inside. I truly believe everyone is beautiful in their own way, why can’t we all celebrate that and encourage each other. There is only one of you, embrace your beauty, and don’t rain on my parade when I’m confident enough to embrace mine. I hope that whatever it is that frustrates you enough to be so cruel will one day go away, because some people might actually take your snide remarks seriously, and I know from experience it can hurt. Let’s be kind to one another, love always x” she added.

What worries me is the growing obsession of perfection in an imperfect world. While I personally have been fond of learning about fashion and trends from childhood days, one must not be obsessed about it to the point it becomes ‘uncool’.
Have you also been subjected to ridicule because of some malicious people? How did you tackle the situation? I would be interested to know.
