Ariana Grande Accused of Having Eating Disorder After Flaunting Petite Frame
Last summer, fans called for The Wendy Williams Show to be cancelled after Wendy Williams said she doesn’t “look at [Ariana Grande] as a woman” due to her petite frame and baby face. But while this incident was a blatant example of body-shaming, it sadly wasn’t the only time the 23-year-old got criticized for her weight.
A few months later, the “Side to Side” singer penned a powerful message to someone who said, “Curves are sexy; Sticks aren’t,” to her on Twitter.
“You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming,” she wrote. “Talking about people’s bodies as if they’re on display ASKING for your approval/opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS.”
Although Ari has done her best to promote body-positivity (she obviously loves her small frame) and even and stand up to those who criticize strangers’ weight, she still gets attacked for her naturally thin frame and often gets accused of being anorexic. Here are just a small handful of the types of notes the former Nickelodeon actress reads on the daily:
@ArianaGrande looks like an anorexic 15 year old. Someone get her some help.

@ArianaGrande do you have an eating disorder or are you 7 years old? I can't tell the difference when I look at you.

Not okay. First of all, using an eating disorder as an insult is so wrong on so many levels, especially when you think about how many people actually do struggle with the mental illness. Secondly, insulting people’s bodies is something that has become such a normal occurrence on social media, and it needs to stop NOW. Body-shaming is never okay, y’all.
