On this year's Fourth of July, American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson was just doing her thing and celebrating by tweeting out a thank you to military veterans.
Thank u 2 every person in service 4 protecting all of us and cheers to every person who fought for us to experience freedom & independence Ἰ9— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) July 5, 2017
But of course, the internet trolls just couldn't leave Clarkson alone. One person replied with a rude (and totally irrelevant), "You're fat."
But Clarkson kept her positivity, and in one swift motion, she elicited the best possible response to the body-shaming message:
....and still fucking awesome ?? https://t.co/LvFgIITaTX— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) July 5, 2017
Unfortunately, this isn't Clarkson's first round with body shamers. In 2015 after appearing on "Graham Norton Live," British media personality Katie Hopkins went to Twitter to criticize Clarkson's body and size, People reported.
Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) February 20, 2015
Clarkson's response to Hopkins' unnecessary ranting?
"I don't have a clue what you're talking about," Clarkson told Heat. "Someone tweeted something about me?" She added, "I'm awesome. It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will."
Clarkson continued, "I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's always been my thing."
Everyone can learn a lesson or two from body image sage Kelly Clarkson.
