Billie Eilish slams body shamers after being criticised for tank top outfit


Billie Eilish took to Instagram to clap back at those criticising her weekend outfit. 

Billie was photographed in LA wearing shorts and a tank top while out for a walk.

Following the body shamers' comments, Billie reposted a Tiktok video encouraging body positivity to her Instagram. 

“Ya’ll got to start normalising 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.”

Billie later posted a photo of herself wearing a tank top and captioned it “Do you really wanna go back in time?”

In 2019, Billie starred in a Calvin Klein ad and admitted that she purposefully wears baggy clothes to hide her figure. 

“I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know?”
