Camila Cabello has clapped back at her Internet critics after spotting trolls’ body-shaming comments online.
The Senorita star was combing the web looking for a photo to post, marking the two-year anniversary of her smash hit Havana, when she came across nasty remarks some people had made about her figure.
Deciding to use the comments as a life lesson for her young fans, Camila took to her Instagram story over the weekend and wrote: “I haven’t gone on social media AT ALL with the conscious intention of avoiding things that hurt my feelings, but for a second I forgot while trying to find a pic to post about it being Havana’s 2 year anniversary and my eyes accidentally ran over a headline of ‘people body shaming me’.
“Honestly first thing I felt was super insecure just IMAGINING what these pictures must look like, oh no! My cellulite! oh no! I didn’t suck in my stomach! But then I was like… of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body’s not made of f****** rock, or all muscle, for that matter.”
She added: “But the saddest part of young girls growing up in an airbrushed world is they’re seeking a perfection that’s not real. I’m writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media.
“They’re constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that’s reality and everyone’s eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, and suddenly they think THAT’S the norm. It isn’t. It’s fake. AND FAKE IS BECOMING THE NEW REAL.
“We have a completely unrealistic view of a woman’s body. Girls, cellulite is normal. fat is normal. It’s beautiful and natural. I won’t buy into the bulls**t today!!! Not today satan. And I hope you don’t either.”
