Songstress Selena Gomez has hit out at nasty online trolls who have slammed her weight – but she insists she ‘doesn’t care’
Selena Gomez has hit back at body-shaming trolls – insisting she ‘doesn’t care about her weight’.
The songstress, 29, has been shamed by nasty online trolls over her appearance.
But the former Disney Channel star fired back on TikTok: “Bitch, I am perfect the way I am.”
The actress added she doesn’t pay attention to her weight and often ignores critics on social media.
“I’m trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich,” she continued.
The star concluded: “I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway.”

Selena – who has a history of serious health problems and has undergone surgeries in the past – appears to be in a better place at the moment.
She was recently slammed online for making a joke about alcohol.
The video in question – shared via TikTok and clearly marked that it was a “joke” – featured Selena grimacing and looking concerned while a doctor in a video declared: “The CDC defines ‘heavy drinking’ as 15 or more drinks a week for men, and eight or more drinks per week for women.”
The CDC is an acronym of a US government agency named the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Selena’s joke sparked backlash from some fans who expressed concern for her health due to the fact she endured a kidney transplant in 2017.
The star underwent the procedure – and received an organ from her best friend, Francia Raisa – after she was diagnosed with lupus before 2014.
The MailOnline claims that one fan brutally hit out at the star writing in a since deleted post: “So one of your best friends gives you her kidney and you continue to drink excessively.”
The aggrieved fan allegedly added: “Damn Selena.”
But the chart topping star swiftly struck back at the criticism to declare: “It was a joke ass,” before the thread disappeared entirely.
Despite the fact her original TikTok post clearly stated the star intended the video to be considered a joke, and her dismissal of the troll, others continued to question her motives.
One fan commented: “Even if it was a joke, I wouldn’t post it. People already think she has a drinking problem, even after surgery, so it’s adding fuel to their fire.”
Another follower wrote: “If it’s a joke why do u keep making tiktoks about how u drink a lot.”
