Internet shaming seems to be an easy way out for haters to spell venom on the web. Just recently, Pooja Bedi’s daughter was targeted for the way she dresses by people calling her all sorts of mean names and writing nasty comments. With so much hate, a person might just lose their cool, but she maintained her grace and retorted with a beautiful and empowering response. Yet again, another star kid is in the line of fire. This time, it’s Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s 15-year-old daughter Khushi Kapoor. 

More often than not, star kids try to filter out all the negative attention they get but sometimes it just gets too much for anyone to handle. 

Like every other 15-year-old, Khushi loves taking pictures and capturing memorable moments, and with Instagram being such a huge platform for sharing photos, she loves sharing them on social media. Hell, I do too! But people on social media have opinions about other people, especially star kids, and they make sure that they get vocal about it no matter how hurtful it might be. 

Khushi was recently body shamed for having a stomach that popped out in her bodycon dress. To even think that a 15-year-old young girl can be subjected to body shaming on social media is just horrible, and that too for having a little paunch that she clearly doesn’t care about. 

But we’re so proud of her for being so wise by not replying to hateful comments with hate and instead putting up this post with a loud and clear message for all the body shamers out there. 

I post my pictures because I feel good and confident. I put out these pictures not because I want to show off or try to be anyone or anything else. I have my own sense of style and my own way to think and me putting out a picture that’s accessible to so many people is taken more of an opportunity to judge me or my looks, clothes or anything else. I put something out there because it’s something I feel good about, everyone is entitled to have their own opinion but putting someone else down because of it is not making you any better of a person. Please think twice before you decide to comment something rude or offensive, it’s not a joke. It’s sad how in this day and age where feminism is finally getting the attention it deserves, girls still feel the need to tear each other down and indulge in body shaming. I don’t care if you think my stomach pops out or if I don’t fit into your idea of beautiful, but for your own conscience please realize that having such narrow minded opinions of people makes you an ugly person inside. I truly believe everyone is beautiful in their own way, why can’t we all celebrate that and encourage each other. There is only one of you, embrace your beauty, and don’t rain on my parade when I’m confident enough to embrace mine. I hope that whatever it is that frustrates you enough to be so cruel will one day go away, because some people might actually take your snide remarks seriously, and I know from experience it can hurt. Let’s be kind to one another, love always x

She’s just 15 years old. She’s got plenty of time to think, worry and fret over how she looks like. So let’s leave other people alone, and mind our own business, maybe?
