Selena Gomez fans wonder how the actress can ignore the physical criticism that flourished on the networks... The truth is that it does not succeed. Despite her best efforts not to be affected by the "body shaming" she is regularly subjected to, Selena Gomez found herself bruised by the derogatory comments about her weight fluctuations, due to her lupus treatment.
After hiding her tears for a long time, she confided in the last episode of the documentary series Letter to... Apple TV +. "My weight was constantly fluctuating under certain medications. And of course, people jumped at it, as if they were eager to find a way to shoot me. I was being singled out because I was gaining weight because of my lupus," she explains.
Yet the Only Murders in the Building star was using her own networks to show that she didn't care about these insulting comments. A lie to preserve those, among her fans, who suffer, like her, mockery on their physique. "I lied. I'd go online, post a picture of myself and say, "It doesn't matter. I don't accept what you say,'" the 31-year-old actress said.
"In the same room where I was posting, I was crying hot tears because no one deserves to hear this stuff. I said it didn't matter to me because I didn't want it to bother other people who are going through the same thing, who are humiliated for their appearance, who they are, or who they love," she added.
"I think it's very unfair. And that no one deserves to feel so bad. »
