Selena Gomez Bans Body Shamers Amid Negative Side Effects of Weight Gain

Selena Gomez, who has lupus and has gained weight as a side effect of her treatment, has spoken out against “body-shaming.”

Since 2015, the 30-year-old singer, actress, and multifaceted businesswoman has been vocal about her struggle with the autoimmune disease. She has had many grueling treatments, including chemotherapy and a kidney transplant (with a kidney donated by her best friend, actor Francia Rasa).

Selena detailed the “water weight” she puts on when taking medication for her disease in a TikTok Live. She also comforted anyone else dealing with similar physical changes brought on by medication. On the broadcast, she is seen sporting a short white roll-neck jumper, minimal makeup, and casually pulled-back hair.

She said:

 “I tend to hold a lot of water weight and that happens very normally. When I’m off [the medication] I tend to lose weight. I just wanted to say and encourage anyone out there who feels any sort of shame for exactly what they’re going through, and no one knows the real story, that you’re beautiful and you’re wonderful and yeah we have days where maybe we feel like shit but I would much rather be helpful and take care of myself. My medications are important and I believe that’s what helps me. So yeah, not a model, never will be – but then I think they’re awesome mind you – I’m just definitely not that.”

Selena gave trolls a clear message that she would not respond to their “shaming” toward the end of the broadcast, packed with supportive comments and heart emojis appearing on the screen.

She continued:

“So that’s it, this is getting a little too much, I just thought I’d tell you I love you guts and thanks for supporting me and understanding me. “

If not, then go away because I don’t believe in shaming people for their body.”

Selena Gomez has publicly defended herself against fat bullying before this year. She made another Instagram Live video following the Golden Globes, where she appeared in a velvet Valentino gown with her nine-year-old sister Gracie.

She said, laughing and looking at her sibling:

“I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays. But we don’t care,”
