5 times our favourite women celebs restored order with their hilarious and charming clapbacks


We can imagine that celebrities try to act a certain way to keep up an image but sometimes fans or non-fans push them too far and they find the most entertaining ways to defend themselves and also to warn other people not to mess with them again.

Here's our top five celebrity clapbacks from women:

1. Rihanna

According to an article by Time, in 2017 a website called Barstool published an article titled “Is Rihanna Going to Make Fat the Hot New Trend?”

The article has since been taken down but not before Rihanna had her say by posting this on her Instagram page, showing that she was okay with her new body and didn't care what people had to say about her weight gain.

2. Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is always quick to clap back, which begs the question, 'why do people even try?'. Her interactions with Piers Morgan have not gone undocumented by Buzzfeed and U.S. President Donald Trump has even blocked her on Twitter because of her relentlessly sharp wit.

3. Khloe Kardashian

Khloe had to school a sports fan who seemed to just cross the line. He thought it would be hilarious to secretly take a picture of her and post it on Instagram to make fun of her looks. Khloe somehow found the post and was quick to put the young man in his place.

4. Zendaya

Some Twitter users enjoy using the platform to body shame other users. Although this particular one did not come for Zendaya directly, Zendaya used her voice and platform to clap back and give a young woman a great opportunity to become a plus size model for her clothing line. Someone took a screenshot of the body shamer's tweets before they could be deleted. 

5. Ashley Graham

According to Today.com Ashley Graham came for Victoria's Secret for not having plus size models in their show by posting a picture of herself on Instagram with wings. Although she has not confirmed that that was her intention we thought she looked amazing in her wings. Real or not.
