Kelly Clarkson vs. Katie Hopkins
Have you heard of Katie Hopkins? If not, let me introduce her to you as the “most hated woman in Britain”. Throughout the years, she has been known to criticize anyone and everyone who is a bit of overweight. This time she is taking aim at sweet Kelly Clarkson. Hopkins began fat-shaming Clarkson after seeing her on The Graham Norton Show. She even tweeted, “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton.”
Of course, the “Heartbeat Song” singer’s fans had her back in this all, which promoted Hopkins to later tweet, “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.” Clarkson doesn’t even follow Hopkins on Twitter. In fact, she didn’t even realize there was any online bullying going on. When Heat magazine asked her point blank about the whole ordeal, Clarkson commented, “She’s tweeted something nasty about me?”
Once Clarkson found out what was said, she responded with, “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. I’ve just never cared what people think. It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family—I don’t seek out any other acceptance.” You would think the feud would be over right there and then, but nope. Hopkins is still talking about Clarkson’s weight. On Entertainment Tonight, she said, “Kelly Clarkson is now a chunky monkey, if we’re putting it kindly. She does look like she’s eaten her backup singers. My advice: she needs to get out there with her stroller and do some pushing and get some of that weight off.”
Oh, but Hopkins didn’t stop there. She even commented on Clarkson’s 8-month-old daughter, River Rose. Hopkins said, “Every fat child has a fat parent. And that’s—for me—why Kelly Clarkson is an important example. She needs to allow her daughter to grow up knowing that it’s not great to be fat. It’s much better to be healthier.” Wow, rude much? Totally team Clarkson here.
