Selena Gomez On Fat-Shaming Comments — New Interview

When asked by fans (at around 16:15 into the video) what one thing in this world she would change if she could, Selena turned to the camera and said, “Bullying. I would deactivate every single comment on any social media. I think you should have an email where you can send in questions, but you should be able to post what you want, say what you want, be what you want without anyone judging you or making you feel like your self-value is from an Instagram post or from people liking your post.”

She finished off her speech with, “I’d get rid of bullying. People are so mean it’s exhausting.”

You got that right, Selena! The singer and actress has been showing off a sexier, curvier body as of late, but she’s unfortunately been hit with awful comments about it. A fan recently took to Instagram to tell Selena to “work out” and “stop eating junk food,” and Selena didn’t like that one bit. She allegedly fired back at the hater and called them “disgusting.”

HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that the fat-shaming comments do hurt Selena’s self-esteem, but she isn’t afraid to confront those who want to criticize her.

Justin and Selena have a tumultuous relationship, but he still holds a torch for Selena. Justin revealed in Seventeen magazine’s June/July 2015 issue that he wants a girl who pushes him “spiritually,” and it sounds like he’s talking all about Selena!
