Billie Eilish was the target of an Internet troll on Tuesday (Oct. 13), after she was seen out and about, ditching her typical baggy clothes for a more breathable tank top and shorts combo amid the Los Angeles heat.
A Twitter user named @GamesNosh shared a photo of the 18-year-old star in the casual attire, captioning the snap, “in 10 months Billie Eilish has developed a mid-30’s wine mom body.”
Eilish herself seemingly responded to the body shaming by posting a sultry photo to Instagram, and a reshare in Stories of a TikTok by Chizi Duru, writing over it, “Can we normalize real bodies??” In the video, Duru says, “Ya’ll gotta start normalizing real bodies, OK? Not everyone has a wagon behind them, OK? Guts are normal — they’re normal. Boobs sag, especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn’t real!”
The star was also met with a flood of support on Twitter, with fans including Kat Dennings and The Blessed Madonna calling out @GamesNosh for his inappropriate, insensitive thoughts while lifting up Eilish for the successful, beautiful woman she is.
Anyone reacting to @billieeilish having a normal body has to take a hard look at themselves. As someone who looked exactly like that at her age, it’d be nice for this unhealthy nonsense to fuck right off. She’s beautiful and normal goodbye!

Thinking about what it would be like to be growing into adulthood and having your body shape be a trending topic.
Billie Eilish is 18 years old, y'all.

Billie Eilish is beautiful! PLEASE, do not body shame her, or anyone for that matter. Body shaming is not “news” or “gossip” it’s HARMFUL and UNACCEPTABLE.

Billie Eilish isn’t going to see your comments about her appearance but your friends who have a NORMAL body will

Well this tweet ruined my morning.
It's unacceptable to body shame anyone, ever, but this has made me particularly angry. Billie Eilish is just 18.
She is a beautiful young woman.
I swear, society just wants us to hate ourselves.
