Khushi Kapoor, daughter of Bollywood actress Sridevi, often shares her pictures on social media but this time, she posted a photo on Instagram that carried a strong message for body shamers.
Sridevi's daughter is seen posing along with a friend in the picture, which carries an open letter to all those who resort to body shaming people on social media.
Khushi is quite popular on Instagram as her photos received good number of likes and comments. However, some of the comments appear to be offensive and this time, she decided to slam her critics in a very polite manner. In the caption, Khushi wrote that she shares her photos on social media because she feels good about herself. She further said that every one has an opinion but no one should express it by trying to put someone else down. The 15-year-old star kid said that body shaming someone makes the critic ugly and not the recipient.
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
