Selena Gomez slams body-shamers over her weight gain

Selena Gomez said she’s “a little bit big right now” — and she doesn’t care.

The “Only Murders in the Building” actress shut down body-shamers on social media after she attended the 2023 Golden Globes in a strapless Valentino gown.

“I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays,” the Rare Beauty founder said in an Instagram Live after the award show this week.

“Right?” Gomez said as she turned to her little sister, Gracie Elliott Teefey, 9, in the background.

“But we don’t care,” she added, as the pair burst into laughter.

The former Disney Channel star hit the Golden Globes 2023 red carpet in a black velvet Valentino Haute Couture gown, which featured voluminous purple sleeves and a plunging off-the-shoulder neckline.

She accessorized the gown, which had a thigh-high split, with diamond drop earrings from De Beers and slicked her tresses back into a high ponytail.

This isn’t the first time Gomez has called out trolls for commenting on her appearance.

Back in April 2022, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” alum slammed body-shamers on TikTok, saying being “skinny” wasn’t worth missing out on her favorite foods because “people bitch about [her weight] anyway.”

“Bitch, I am perfect the way I am,” she quipped.

Additionally, the “Lose You to Love Me” songstress has been candid about her tumultuous relationship with social media through the years, even deleting the apps from her phone in 2019 because negative comments left her feeling “depressed.”

However, she’s since re-downloaded the apps, as evidenced by her recent flurry of activity on Instagram and TikTok.

“Wait can you tell I’m back on Instagram?” she captioned a recent post.

It was swiftly followed by several snaps with her new BFF Nicola Peltz Beckham — with whom she got matching tattoos — and her husband, Brooklyn Beckham.
