Pop and country music artist Kelsea Ballerini has a message for fat-shamers: Pipe down!
On Nov. 8, Ballerini posted an incredible photo of herself from the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. During the show, photographers captured an awesome shot of the “Miss Me More” singer strutting her stuff on the catwalk.
Ballerini looks fit, happy and confident in the photo, and she captioned it with a simple, all-caps message: “GLOW.”
However, when an insensitive commenter told the artist to “lose some weight” in response to the fashion show photo, the gloves quickly came off.
“Not today, Satan,” Ballerini blasted back in a separate Instagram post with an animated screen caption of the offensive comment. She relied on Patrick Star of “Spongebob Squarepants” fame to show exactly how she felt about the remark.
Beyond the beautiful combination of Patrick stuffing cheeseburgers down his throat and the little guy in the corner sweetly saying, “You need a hug,” Ballerini had a more direct response to fat shamers.
“Hi troll,” she wrote on Instagram. “Listen. First of all, I’m not a model. I’m a singer. Second of all, I’m not responding to this to give you attention because you don’t deserve that. I’m responding because I am a healthy, normal chick which I pride myself on and work hard for, and want other young girls to see that and know that ‘skinny’ is not always the goal. And for you to think it’s ok to comment on my weight or size is disgusting. I’m going to get a burger now. Bye.”
We bet that burger tasted delicious.
Ballerini has never been shy about showing off her fit body, whether it’s onstage or via social media. On Instagram, she shared her music video that features her in the boxing ring:
And she also makes sure to share snaps of herself indulging in one of her favorite meals: pasta!
Good for Ballerini for standing up to fat-shaming trolls!
