Selena Gomez has zero tolerance for bullies! "The Heart Wants What It Wants" singer proved that much when she responded to an Instagram user who was slamming her body on social media by posting rude comments.
The fan wrote comments like, "you need to work out!" and "Please stop eating junk food." Selena, never one to sit aside when haters bully her, called out her tormentor in an Instagram comment.
"IM IN the business and I could care less about what 'they' or you say I should look like. I don't need to do anything other than love myself, take care of my work, fans, family, and friends," Selena fired back.
"And I do work out," she added. "It's not your place to tell anyone what they should or should not do."
We know it's super tough for celebrities, who continuously deal with bullying. In fact, 10-year-old Francesca Capaldi from Dog With a Blog only just admitted that she too has gotten bullied! They're constantly criticized and hated on by Internet trolls. That's why it's a breath of fresh air to see someone like Selena sticking up for herself and setting a positive, encouraging example for kids.
Remember, M Girls, it is never okay for ANYONE to bully you or tell you what you should or shouldn't do or look like. All that matters is that you're happy and that you love yourself, your friends, and your family, just like Selena said!
