Celebs who shot down bodyshamers (DO NOT ADD MORE)
19 celebs who took aim against body shamers
In January 2014, comedian Jay Mohr, 42, called attention to Alyssa Milano's post-baby figure.
"It seems like she had a baby," he said on the radio. "I don't really give a s--t ... I read it on her gut."
Milano acknowledged that the comments hurt her and expressed her thoughts on body shaming as a whole.
"I think it's an interesting statement about where we are socially that people feel that they can sort of rip a woman's body apart after having a baby," she told Mario Lopez. "I don't think it's fair."

We thought Pink, 35, looked beautiful in a plunging black dress at an event last week, but negative comments about her weight still surfaced online.
"I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight," she tweeted. "You're referring to the pictures of me from last night's cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome."
"She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you," she continued. "While I admit that the dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful."
There you have it!

Lena Dunham, 28, is proud of her body, and she definitely isn't afraid to show it off. The "Girls" star regularly bares it all on her hit HBO show, and has frequently spoken out against the concept of body shaming.
"You know, it gets easier and easier. My fears came true. People called me fat and hideous, and I lived. And now I keep living," she told The Guardian.

Gabourey Sidibe has been called "enormous," "scary," "a balloon on the body of a zeppelin" -- and more, but the actress has brushed it all off and pursued her dreams, even after many told her she would never make it in Hollywood.
After critics slammed her appearance on the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet, Sidibe tweeted, "To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night."

Karl Lagerfeld once called powerhouse singer Adele "a little too fat," but Adele, 26, responded in the best way.
"I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines," she told People. "I represent the majority of women, and I'm very proud of that."

Perhaps Britney Spears said it best earlier this week after a concertgoer at her "Piece of Me" residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas called her a "fat b-tch."
"F--king a--hole," Spears shouted into her mic in response.

Kelly Clarkson recently made headlines when she responded to criticism from body shamers that she gained too much weight.
"I'm such a creative person that I yoyo. So sometimes I'm more fit, and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And then sometimes I don't, and I'm like ... I'd rather have wine," she explained on "Ellen."
The "Heartbeat Song" singer, 32, isn't the only celeb to receive major criticism about her body -- and she's definitely not the only one to defend herself against it, either.
On Wednesday, Britney Spears fired back at at a fan at her Las Vegas concert after the heckler reportedly called her a "fat b--ch." Spears retaliated with a couple of her own choice words.
Stars like Melissa McCarthy, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lawrence have also all experienced some form of body shaming, whether it be for being "too fat," "too skinny" or otherwise. While difficult to brush off, they have all come back expressing love for their bodies, which, in light of young, impressionable fans, is an important task.
"I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I'll have a meet and greet after the show and a girl who's like bigger than me will be in the meet and greet and be like, 'Wow, if they think you're big I must be so fat to them,'" Clarkson said. "And it's like, you're just who you are. We are who we are -- whatever size. And it doesn't mean that we're gonna be that forever."
