Typically when we speak about body shaming, we discuss people making fun of those who might be on the larger size. But did you realize that bullying someone for being skinny is also considered body shaming?
Celine Dion was recently on the receiving end of some harsh online critics who had a thing or two about to say about her appearance. And the 51-year-old singer has no time for haters.
After switching up her wardrobe, which she says reflects how she feels inside, Celine Dion, has been bullied by those who believe she’s become too skinny after her husband’s death in January 2016 or shouldn’t wear such bold outfits.
“The way that we used to work before was more conservative,” Dion said to The Sun.
She explained that even though some may think that she’s changing up her outfits to take a risk, she’s not.
“I’m doing this for me,” she said. “I want to feel strong, beautiful, feminine and sexy.”
She also shared some advice for those who don’t like her outfits, “don’t take a picture.”
In addition to questioning her sense of style, online critics have expressed concern about her weight. While her weight is no one’s concern but her own, she told PEOPLE her slimmer figure is due to practicing ballet four days a week.
“People say, ‘She’s a lot thinner’ but I’m working hard. I like to move and [weight loss] comes with it.”
