“You’re fat, ” user @ Euger2 3 responded a retort neither patriotic nor relevant, if you ask me.
Clarkson, who has amassed over 11 million adherents on the social media platform, attracts trolls left and right. She has much better things to do than respond to every last Joe Schmo who clearly needs a hobby or two.
But Clarkson chose a simple, four-word reaction would do the trick this time.
“And still fucking awesome, ” the vocalist answered.
For starters, don’t stoop to their level. Unless you’re a playground bully in first grade, you should know better.
Make sure you don’t perpetuate any harmful messaging. Clarkson didn’t fight back against being called fat because there really wasn’t a need to. “Fat” is not a dirty word, after all; it’s an adjective. Our culture often weaponizes it as an insult when it shouldn’t be.
And then cap it off with the perfect emoji. Because nothing tells “I’m above your attempt at name-calling” than a tongue-out, winking smiley face.
