Mariah Carey is being body shamed over this Instagram photo

Singer Mariah Carey is being body-shamed on Instagram after posting a photo of herself on a date.

Commenters on Mariah Carey’s Instagram are currently opposing about Carey’s appearance in a specific photo of her and boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. “Mariah, you need to lose some weight cause your starting to look like a whale, ” someone told. Other people commented that she looked like “a tease, ” needed to “cover those airbags, ” or that she “looked gross.”

Followers soon came to Carey’s defense. “You know she has feelings too. Just cuz shes a public figure, what gives you the right to call her names … Would you like if you posted a pic& people blamed all your flaws ?? ” person or persons wrote. Other people skipped the body-shaming drama and complimented Carey on her singing instead. “Thanks @mariahcarey for a beautiful show last night, exhaustively enjoyed EVERY minute, ” one told. Additionally, Tanaka reposted the photo on his own Instagram with the caption, “Love you babe! “

If she was bothered, Carey didn’t show it; she posted a video of herself performing and a photo with Tyler Perry and Tanaka in the hours following the comments.

This is far from the first time Carey has been the target of body criticism. In Touch Weekly reported that just last week during the course of its final performance of her Las Vegas residency, audience members repeatedly made fat-shaming remarks about her appearance. She was also slut-shamed for wearing a flesh-colored bodysuit during her New Year’s Eve performance this past December, while her Halloween costumes routinely receive criticism every year for being exposing or tight-fitting. Isn’t it hour we let the woman live and wear whatever she wants?
