Music superstar Kelly Clarkson shut down a body-shamer on Twitter this week. We got further proof of this yesterday, on the Fourth of July, when a body-shaming Twitter user came at Clarkson with a super-original (sense the sarcasm?) insult: "You're fat".

Kelly, 35, had been sharing messages celebrating July 4th writing: 'Had a handsome day w/family & I know I was able 2 have it because of the strength&courage of the men&women who have&are protecting us!' While most of her followers responded with their own stories of family members or loved ones in the armed forces, or tweeted their thanks to Clarkson for her sweet message, one person seized the opportunity to offer their non sequitur opinion.

Two years ago, Clarkson reportedly laughed it off after British personality Katie Hopkins tweeted negative comments about her weight.

The Stronger hitmaker opened up in 2015 about the constant criticism of her figure.

The 57-year-old host said he is the last person that would bring up a topic about a person's weight. She added that she was considered "the biggest girl" when she competed on American Idol in 2002.

"It's like, you just are who you are". We are who we are - whatever size. "Whatever size, and it doesn't meant that we're gonna be that forever".

"That's the thing. Sometimes we're more fit". Like, especially me. I'm such a creative person that I yoyo. "Oh, and she's tweeted something nasty about me?" "It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good". News: "I sincerely apologise to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment".
