To the Lady Who Fat-Shamed Kelly Clarkson

Dear Katie,

You used to be called the "unofficial most-hated woman in Britain." But something changed last week when you fat-shamed singer Kelly Clarkson multiple times on Twitter. You stopped being the unofficial most-hated woman in Britain and it became official. Congratulations, you must be so proud.

See, the other day when you saw singer Kelly Clarkson on Britain’s “The Graham Norton Show,” you were kind enough to tweet your thoughts on Kelly’s post-baby body. You sweetly and generously wrote, “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton." Then you wrote, “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves."

I like how you used the term "chubsters," which is about as juvenile as picking on a woman for her body not being perfect. A lot of successful women spend their time trying to be supportive and kind to one another, but not you, Katie. You’re working on being immature and mean while having worse manners than my 4-year-old daughter. Picking on a woman who gained weight during pregnancy is like shooting fish in a barrel. It’s an easy target. Good for you for not being like all those other successful women who are supportive of one other. Good for you for trying to be a mean girl bully. Being mean is a different way to be nice and mature and you really went for it! Go, you.

I know it’s hard to believe, Katie, but not everybody cares if they aren’t a size 2. Some people have other things to do.

In answer to your question, Katie—no, Kelly Clarkson did not eat all of her backup singers. She didn’t even eat one of them. What she did do however, Katie, was birth a real live human person out of her vagina. And then Katie, what Kelly Clarkson didn’t do, was lose the baby weight she gained birthing that person out of her vagina-adjacent body parts the minute she had that baby. In fact, a year later she still hasn't lost it. On “The Graham Norton Show” Kelly Clarkson looked like a normal person. And normal people aren’t always perfect. Sometimes normal people are "chubsters."

In our house, we have a rule for our kids that we don’t talk about the way people look. Kids tend to lack impulse control and don’t always know that strangers don’t really want to hear that my kids noticed they have a big tummy, a weird mole or any other physical difference a toddler might want to talk about aloud. My kids seem to have no problem sticking to the “we don’t talk about the way people look” rule so why can't you? I know it’s hard to believe, Katie, but not everybody cares if they aren’t a size 2. Some people have other things to do, like accept themselves the way they are or spend time with their newborn child.

So, Katie, while it was so kind of you to tweet your thoughts, it’s time you followed the rules. You may not think it’s cute to be a chubster, but it’s downright ugly to be a mean girl bully.

Oh, and by the way, when Kelly Clarkson heard what you had to say she simply replied, "I'm awesome." If you've heard her sing you know she's right.
