Kelly Clarkson clapped back at a body-shamer who called her fat, insisting she’s still “awesome” regardless of her size.
When the person tweeted her, “You’re fat”, Kelly quickly responded, “… and still f***ing awesome”, along with a winking face emoji.
Fans were quick to praise Kelly for her quick-witted comeback, creating memes celebrating her response (classic internet).

It’s not the first time Kelly has come under fire for her curvy figure. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres back in 2015, the former American Idol winner said she is no longer bothered by the criticism she has faced for her weight over the years.
“I love how people think that’s new – like, ‘Welcome to the past 13 years,'” she told Ellen. “Yeah, I was the biggest girl on (American Idol), too. And I wasn’t big, but people would call me big because I was the biggest one on Idol, and I’ve kind of always gotten that.”
“It’s like, you’re just who you are,” she smiled. “We are who we are. Whatever size, and it doesn’t mean that we’re gonna be that forever,” she said.
“That’s the thing. Sometimes we’re more fit. Like especially me, I’m such a creative person that I yo-yo. So, sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And then sometimes I don’t, and I’m like… I’d rather have wine.”
