Kelly Clarkson Was Body-Shamed And She Had The Best Response

An internet troll called body image queen Kelly Clarkson fat, and Clarkson had the best response ever. We can all learn from her calm, cool self-awareness.

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. 

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:

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.  

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.
