Jessie J Is Pleading With Her Fans To Stop Questioning Her Body

So, it might be a good rule of thumb for folks not to comment on other people's bodies — even if they're celebrities. And even if it's only on social media. Some celebs like Jameela Jamil and Jonah Hill have been outspoken about online body-shaming in the past, and now British singer Jessie J has joined the chorus of famous people begging their fans to please stop speculating about theirs or others' bodies. 

Apparently reaching her breaking point, the British singer posted a long block of text to her Instagram Story on March 31 (via Us Weekly) telling followers that all of the unsolicited body commentary she sees on socials and that she's experienced in real life — it has to stop. "Stop commenting on people's weight, anyone. Just stop," her social media treatise began. The pop diva referenced changes in her own weight and her recent miscarriage, which both seem to have been the subject of commentary from strangers. 

Jessie J wants weight comments to 'just stop'

In the Instagram Story slide (via Us Weekly), Jessie J told her followers to "just stop" commenting on anybody's weight, definitely don't ask if they're pregnant, don't tell them they look skinny, none of that. "I see it so much on socials and I know it happens in real life," she wrote. Jessie also said that she'd gained some weight recently and feels great. "It might stay or it might not or I might gain more. Who cares," she asked. "I don't care as long as I feel good and am healthy." She said someone recently even asked if she was pregnant, which was especially painful after she was so open about her miscarriage and the pain of that. "So strange and damn bold. I would never," she wrote. 

We like to think we've all come a long way since the days when we would comment on people's (usually women's) bodies in public, but it seems we still have a little work to do. Other celebs who have recently clapped back at body shamers include Alicia Silverstone, "Yellowjackets" star Melanie Lynskey, and Rumer Willis

So if you want to comment on somebody else's body, what should you do? All together now: Don't.
