Billie Eilish Fans Defend Singer After She’s Objectified For Wearing a Tank Top
Billie Eilish's fans came to her defense after people objectified her for wearing a tank top.
The 17-year-old singer was recently photographed sporting a white tank top out in public, which sparked a flurry of tweets on the internet, many of which sexualized her appearance. In the photos, you can see her wearing the fitted tank under a baggy sweatshirt, which is the less form-fitting attire people are used to seeing her in.
In case you didn't know, the "Bury a Friend" hitmaker actually opened up about the reason why she wears baggy clothes last month in her Calvin Klein #MYCALVINS campaign. She revealed she wants to hide her body to avoid shamers and people who will comment on the way she looks.
"I never want the world to know everything about me," she explained. "I mean that's why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath. Nobody can be like, 'Oh, she's slim-thick, she's not slim-thick, she's got a flat ass, she's got a fat ass.' No one can say any of that because they don't know."
It turns out, she was right because as soon as the photos hit the web, Twitter users immediately commented on her "thick" appearance. Fans quickly pointed this out and called out the "creeps" who are objectifying a minor.
