"It’s disgusting to see the comments on Billie Eilish’s body, she’s literally 18."

Billie Eilish fans are defending and supporting the 18-year-old singer after recent body-shaming comments from Twitter trolls.

New photos of Billie emerged earlier this week, minding her own business and going about her day. She was dressed in a pair of baggy shorts and a tank top. Nothing newsworthy about it, to be honest.

While most people couldn't care less, the trolls on the internet soon decided to pass comment. One tweet criticising Billie's body then went viral and Billie's fans immediately called out the tweet, slamming the person who posted it.

One fan wrote: "it’s disgusting to see the comments on billie eilish’s body, she’s literally 18, the amount of people body shaming her makes me wanna puke [sic]"

Another added: "can’t wait for the day when billie eilish stops getting judged for wearing tank tops outside of her baggy clothes aesthetic. [sic]"

YouTuber and musician Jessie Paege also criticised the comments surrounding Billie's body, writing: "Billie Eilish is beautiful! PLEASE, do not body shame her, or anyone for that matter. Body shaming is not “news” or “gossip” it’s HARMFUL and UNACCEPTABLE."

In response to the conversation, Billie also shared a video from Chizi Duru on Instagram titled 'Can we normalize real bodies?'

In the video, Chizi says: "Y'all gotta start normalising real bodies, ok? Not everybody has a wagon behind them. Guts are normal. They're normal. Boobs sag, especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn't real."

Billie Eilish is beautiful! PLEASE, do not body shame her, or anyone for that matter. Body shaming is not “news” or “gossip” it’s HARMFUL and UNACCEPTABLE.
