Kelly Clarkson loves herself just as she is. And if you don’t? Well, that’s your problem, pal. The 35-year-old singer proved it again over the holiday weekend when a Twitter troll ruined her day with the comment “you’re fat.” Clarkson wasted no time in responding with the best, funniest and conversation-ending tweet.

Clarkson got plenty of support from her fans in the brief Twitter spat, with comments including “SO AWESOME! LOVE LOVE YOU,” “She’s sexy as hell! I’m gay and Kelly makes me reconsider,” “poor guy. He must be so insecure about himself. Can’t use his own face as his icon&put others down to feel better,” “TRY, bc Kelly is amazing! Beautiful inside & out. Love you girl!” and the classic one below.

Clarkson has said she’s faced negative comments and criticism about her figure ever since entering the public eye following her 2002 win on American Idol, and she’s always been very vocal about not having time for it. In 2015, she told Redbook magazine, “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it. There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism – that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
