Ariana Grande has called on her fans to be kinder and gentler with their comments about her body and others.
People were comparing her current body to the unhealthiest version of her body when she was on antidepressants, drinking heavily, and eating poorly.
Grande has previously been open about her struggles with anxiety and other mental health issues.
Selena Gomez recently made a similar appeal for understanding, explaining that lupus medication caused her to retain water.
Social media users have criticised the body shaming culture that prompted Grande and Gomez to speak out.
Other stars, including Adele and Jonah Hill, have also called for an end to comments about their bodies.
Grande emphasized that people should “aim towards being safer, and keeping each other safer.”
She suggested that there are many different kinds of beautiful, and people should avoid making comparisons and judgments about others' bodies.
