On Monday, someone on Twitter commented on how they prefer Modern Family star Ariel Winter’s body type to Ariana Grande. This commenter’s reason was that Grande is too skinny. The commenter wrote, “Curves are sexy sticks aren’t.”
We all know societal standards of beauty are deteriorating and impossible to attain, but this brought a new perspective into the light. Not only do we have to worry about being judged for being too curvy, but now we have to worry about being too skinny. No one can win.
This is definitely not okay, and that is exactly how Grande responded.
Grande takes a stab against the skinny-shaming and body-shaming comment with, “Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy! You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!! Talking about people’s body’s as if they’re on display ASKING for your approval / opinion. THEY ARE NOT!!!! CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS.”
Celebrate others. Celebrate yourself. We love this conclusion. A woman’s value should never equate to what she sees in the mirror, and how others perceive our own appearances. But when commenters lash out like this, how can women not feel like their bodies and their self-wroth are one in the same? So we really commend Grande for speaking up against body shamers.
Even Winter backs Grande up. Winter took to Twitter Grande’s same, beautiful conclusion on celebrating one another, not hating and being comparing each other.

While we cannot control how others will perceive us, it’s nice to see these women take a stand against such a negative outlook. They’ve taught us through this situation that there is no such thing as too curvy, or too skinny, or too anything. We are different and that is what makes us beautiful, and one commenter telling us otherwise is just another opinion that can bite the dust.
