Celebs Who Were Bullied Because Of Their Weight

March 11, 2014 ‐ By Iva Anthony

No one could dispute that being a celebrity certainly comes with privileges, but there’s a downside to everything. Unfortunately, because these stars spend so much time in the limelight, they’ve been the target of negative criticism after being bullied because their weight.

Celebs Who Were Bullied Because Of Their Weight



Ke$ha doesn’t fit the stereotype of how the average singer/rapper is supposed to look. Born and raised in Los Angeles, the 27-year-old marches to the beat of her own drum, so when it was revealed that the “Die Young” rapper checked into rehab for an eating disorder earlier this year, fans were shocked. Even worse, her mother revealed that Ke$ha was bullied to lose weight by people within her own inner circle. Soon after checking in, Ke$sha released a statement: “I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself but I’ve found it hard to practice.” She continued that she was aiming “to learn to love myself again. Exactly as I am.”

    We are in a world where being skinny is everything. We have people who would literally starve them self’s just to be skinny. Most people know how it feels to be the big person in the room and to feel self conscious of them self. But still want to throw jabs at a person. And that’s what gets to me. Why talk bad about a person knowing, when it was you. You was not happy about the comments that was being made. Its like people forget how it felt to be a certain size in a society that makes you believe skinny is everything! Which its not, you can be big and health. Hell you can be big and be healthier than a skinny person. Some people don’t have the money or time to go to the gym anytime they want or pay for a personal trainer.

    Not everyone is born with high metabolism or is able to stay skinny for the rest of there life. Things happen. As for being pregnant, people are just ignorant and think its, “COOL” to call a pregnant women fat. They are just showing an a** of them self’s.

    Be happy of your body. If your not happy of your body change, because you want too. Not because people are saying negative stuff about your body. Hell ask them if they are going to pay for everything you need to be able to get in the shape they want you to be? Food, gym, TIME??

    Kelly Osborne is such a fraud. I used to love her, even after she hated on “twig b—hes” like Xtina when Xtina was thin and Kelly was thick. Then, E! news threw a bone at her and she succumbed hook, line, and sinker. Dropped pounds and started making fun of every other female on the seen with a muffin top. Including Xtina! Again lol! Girl bye, no one cares about your ‘poor little rich girl’ plight…

    Where’s Gabourey Sidibe on this list. That woman has been crucified for her body ever since she came out and I’m glad that she’s confident in her own skin. Also Kate Upton looks great and she’s not fat at all. Also Kim K. wasn’t bullied for her weight during her pregnancy, it was the poor choices in maternity clothes she wore during her pregnancy.

      Exactly! Every outfit made her look like a stuffed sausage! Very unflattering!

    I’m surprised Gabourey Sidibe wasn’t on the list. I love her confidence.

    KK wasn’t bullied because of her weight! She was “bullied”, if you even want to call it that, because of her choice of maternity wear. The clothes she was wearing during pregnancy were very unflattering, and she looked really uncomfortable. But hey, it’s none of our business how she wanted to dress. But I just wanted to clear that up…

      Thank you! I get so tired of people trying to make Kim Kardashian the poster girl for fat shaming. People made fun of her because she insisted on cramming herself into one ridiculously snug outfit after the other. Of course women gain weight when they’re pregnant, but most of them wear comfortable clothing that accentuates their growing bodies. They don’t teeter around in strappy Louboutins that look like they’re cutting off their circulation or shoehorn themselves into tight a$$ frocks that make them look twice as big.
