Billie Eilish Shares Video Calling To 'Normalize Real Bodies' After Being Body-Shamed

Rae Batchelor 15 Oct 2020

It's no secret that most women in the world do not look like the girls you see on Instagram. Most people don't have a flat stomach, most people don't have a tiny waist, and most people aren't always wearing supermodel-level makeup. It's sad that society has conditioned some people to expect all women, especially famous women, to look a certain way, and Billie Eilish is speaking out.

Billie Eilish has been making some major waves in the music industry.

She rose to fame in 2015 with her song "Ocean Eyes" when she was just 14 years old. By 2019, her album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, became the best-performing album of 2019 in the U.S.

Billie definitely has a signature look.

Not only is she known for her neon-green hair roots, she is also almost always spotted in vibrant colors and extremely oversized, baggy clothing.

But there's a reason for that!

In the past, Billie has explained that she dresses the way she does because she's comfortable like that, but also so that people aren't able to have an opinion on her body.

Unfortunately, people have decided to do just that.

After paparazzi photos caught Billie wearing a tank top and shorts, some people online began criticizing her body.

The negative comments caused an uproar on Twitter from fans who came to defend Billie.

While some trolls began speculating that Billie was overweight, fans stood up for the star and said it doesn't matter even if she is.

"In 10 months Billie Eilish is still a normal human being who has a normal human body," one fan replied.

"When Chadwick passed away everybody on here talking about how we can’t judge people anymore because they may be dealing with things we don’t know about, but y’all just forgot that a week later," they continued.

Other fans drew the attention toward Billie's massive success that she's already achieved at such a young age.

Twitter was full of messages with similar, positive sentiments supporting the singer.

There was no way that Billie didn't hear about what was happening online.

And she responded by taking to Insagram to re-post a video — and fans were left to read between the very obvious lines.

The video was of a woman named Chizi saying people needed to start normalizing real bodies.

“Y’all gotta start normalizing real bodies, okay?” Chizi says. “Guts are normal. They’re normal. Boobs sag….especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn’t real!”

We love to see Billie and all of her fans not letting bullies shame her for existing!
