British celebrity Katie Hopkins tweeted several negative comments about the appearance and body shape of singer Kelly Clarkson after the latter appeared on Graham Norton Live, People magazine reported. Writing for People, Steve Helling reported Kelly Clarkson appeared on that show and “showed off a fuller figure.”
“What happened to Kelly Clarkson?” Hopkins wrote. “Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen.”
Hopkins doubled down on the comments, tweeting, “Look, chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.”
Hopkins responded to critics of her fat-hating with this tweet.
Clarkson initially had a puzzled reaction when asked by Heat magazine, saying, “I don’t have a clue what you’re about. Someone tweeted something nasty about me?”
After the attack on her shape and appearance by Hopkins was explained, Kelly Clarkson responded, “That’s because she doesn’t know me. I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.”
People reported that Hopkins had become a celebrity herself after appearing as a contestant on The Apprentice UK, “where she drew attention for her acerbic, insulting comments.” People also noted she has appeared on other reality shows and is an outspoken conservative who has gained a status as a political pundit.
But Kelly Clarkson is keeping it positive despite the attacks on her appearance, telling Heat magazine, “It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good. That’s always my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
“Kelly Clarkson Fires Back at Fat Shamer,” ABC News reported about the incident. “Journalist and reality star Katie Hopkins, known as ‘the most hated woman in Britain,’ blasted Clarkson’s size on Twitter.”
“Last month, Sun columnist Katie Hopkins tweeted some pretty mean messages about Clarkson’s weight. The media personality was responding to Clarkson’s appearance on Graham Norton, and decided to let the world know what she thought about Kelly’s weight gain since the singer gave birth to her first child,” the Inquisitr reported about the “fat shaming” attack on Kelly Clarkson.
