Fat shaming is a very common menace. From average Joes to celebrities. no one is spared the lack of "perfection."
The atmosphere wasn’t much different at the BMI Pop Awards, but Pink, for one, wasn't going to let this nonsense go unchallenged. The spunky pop star decided to take a stand against fat shaming bullies. The real-life heroine refused to tolerate fat shaming and gave millions of fans one more reason to look at her as a role model.
Here’s a video of her statement:
"I don't take well to bullying. I never have. I'm not a person that will be bullied. I'm not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied," said the superstar to Entertainment Tonight in an interview.
The gorgeous singer and songwriter graced the BMI Pop Awards dressed in a coral pink gown and carried herself with her signature confidence and elegance.
Pink’s journey against bullies started when she showed up at Odyssey Ball in April wearing a black party dress. Unable to focus on the Duke Award, commenters took it upon themselves to show "concern" about the singer’s body weight. Later the singer replied with a series of Tweets demonstrating just how happy the people she loves are with her body.
