Ariana Grande fires back at crude celeb body comparisons (PHOTO)
Ariana Grande is the latest celeb encouraging self-acceptance to speak out against a degrading post comparing the singer with Ariel Winter.
Grande shared the tweet she received that read, "Got asked if I'd prefer @arielwinter1 or @ArianaGrande lol, it wud DEFINITELY be @arielwinter1 curves are sexy sticks aren't."
"Here we go again..." Grande captioned her Instagram photo, sharing the rude tweet. "I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling this way today!! in case you need a reminder, you're beautiful it's a beautiful day to be yourself !!"
She also added a longer message underneath the mean tweet, explaining, "sigh... tweets, comments, statements like this are not okay. about anyone!!! we live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for men, women, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. diversity is sexy! loving yourself is sexy! you know what is NOT sexy? misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!! talking about people's body's as if they're on display ASKING for your approval / opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS. The things that make us different from one another make us BEAUTIFUL. BODY BOUNDARIES. LOVE LOVE LOVE ONLY."
This is far from the first time Grande has spoken out about body-shaming issues, but it may be her most poignant, since it is a blatant example of how she herself is objectified on a daily basis.
And she is spot-on in her much-deserved rant. Different body types are sexy! To see it in any other way is one of the most flawed types of ignorance.
So far, Winter has yet to comment on Grande's post about the rude comparison.
We just hope whoever wrote this tweet realizes the negative impact and apologizes.
