Haters on Twitter picked the wrong singer to fat-shame. Over the weekend, commentators on the social media site noted that Pink, escorted by her husband to the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball in Beverly Hills, California, Saturday night, had apparently put on a few pounds. Fortunately for fans, Pink responded in the perfect way saying:
“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight.You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about me. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either. I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.“
Once again, Pink has proved that the best way to silence haters is to not stoop to their level – and by signing any response you decide to send their way “cheesecake“.
