Billie Eilish just sent a message to the latest keyboard troll who took it upon themselves to comment on her body. Seemingly in response to body shamers, Eilish posted a video by TikTok vlogger Chizi Duru to her Instagram Stories.
In the video, Duru argued that society has "gotta start normalizing real bodies," before saying, "Not everybody has a wagon behind them, okay? Guts are normal; they're normal. Boobs sag, especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn't real."
Eilish followed up by posting a photo of herself in a tank top with the caption "Do you really wanna go back in time?"
The 18-year-old artist has spoken up frequently about her experience of being body shamed. Last year, she told Elle that her signature oversized clothing was chosen because "it kind of gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like." Then in March, Eilish released a short film titled Not My Responsibility in which she stripped down and submerged herself in black water à la Under the Skin to deliver a powerful voice over.
“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it," she said. "Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always. And nothing I do goes unseen. If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it ... Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you?”
Those questions are now directed to one person in particular, who, on seeing Elish wearing anything other than baggy clothing (she was wearing a sick all-tan fit feat. Gucci socks and Yeezy slides, if you're interested), felt it was his place to comment on her figure. And Twitter has a perfect unified response to him, which you can read below:
