Gaga Demolishes Body Shaming Trolls

Americans recently criticized and defended artist Stephanie Germanotta (Lady Gaga) for her “belly” during the the Super Bowl 51 halftime show.  

This type of body shaming should not be happening.

Even though the average American woman size is increasing, that is not to say it is healthy. However, Gaga only weighs in at 117 pounds. The average American woman weighs 166.2 pounds. That means that Gaga is 49.2 pounds lighter than the average American woman.

People quickly took to Twitter to express their concerns and defend their lady.

Some Twitter users were just concerned that the entire internet literally lost their marbles over an exposed abdomen.

Whether it is necessary or not this internet commotion still happened and needs to be addressed. We are in a society where we are slowly starting to accept all types of bodies, but if we call women “brave” for showing their abdomen then we are saying that their “bellies” no matter the size are something to be ashamed of.

Although this influential user got her point across, that number is actually quite low compared to the actual amount of Americans with eating disorders. According to this site, in the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life.

Gaga quickly took to Instagram to tell fans exactly how she felt about the negative internet back lash.

Thank you Lady Gaga for again showing the internet and the rest of the world what a true role model looks like. Responding this way to negative body image comments gives hope to the rest of the us just trying to accept our bodies and slay internet trolls one post at a time.
