Kelly Clarkson Claps Back at Body-Shamer For Calling Her Fat
Kelly Clarkson isn't here for your fat-shaming.
The American Idol season 1 winner was not about to take any rude words from her trolls on Independence Day.
The singer was quick to clap back at a Twitter user for mentioning her body size in a reply.
Thank u 2 every person in service 4 protecting all of us and cheers to every person who fought for us to experience freedom & independenceKelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) July 5, 2017
On the 4th of July, Kelly posted a patriotic tweet to celebrate the American holiday.
She thanked "every person in service" and everyone "who fought for us to experience freedom & independence."
Twitter user @Euger23 replied to post with a curt, "You're fat."
Fans immediately came to her defense, responding to the tweet.
"To the 232 followers following this creep...WHY? ...and also WHY?" user @EldaEldridge asked.
You're fatCliff Cherokee (@Euger23) July 5, 2017
But Kelly was having none of it and responded with a simple, "and still f—king awesome."
Fans were definitely here for Kelly defending herself and tweeted words of support and love for the performer.

Kelly is no stranger to getting criticism over her weight.
Since American Idol, the mother of two has faced condemnation from the public over her curvy figure.
"I don't obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it," she told Redbook magazine in 2015.
"There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism – that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has."
In 2015, Katie Hopkins, a British reality star and newspaper columnist, started tweeting bullying comments towards the singer.
Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnortonKatie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) February 20, 2015
"That's because she doesn't know me. I'm awesome!" Kelly answered in response to the tweet in an interview with Heat Magazine.
"It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will. 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. And more so now, since having a family—I don't seek out any other acceptance."
We are totally here for Kelly standing up for herself and spreading body positivity.
