- Twitter quickly came to Billie Eilish's defense when a user tried to comment on her body.
- Reminder: Billie is 17 years old.
While the weekend is generally a good time to relax, recharge and just have fun, I also feel like we should all take a moment in Sunday to soak in a very important lesson: DO NOT come to Billie Eilish on Twitter.
The 17-year-old emo-pop singer – whom I'm sure you've heard of before, but if you don't, how dare you – was out and about recently, and she loved a fan tag a picture with her But no good action goes unpunished and somebody found that picture (where Billie has a tank top) and decided that it would be a good idea to post it on Twitter along with the scary comment, "Billie Eilish is THIRD. "
Twitter went OFF on this person for many reasons, including a) objectifying women are not cool generally b) Billie is literally a minor and c) she usually wears baggy clothes, so it is clear that she does not want attention on her body.
In fact, Billie has previously talked about how she usually wears baggy clothes for this precise reason and says, "I never want the world to know everything about me. That means I have big, baggy clothes. No one can get an opinion, because they have not seen what is under, do you know? No one can be like, "Oh, she is slim and thick, she is not slim, she has a flat ass, she has a fat ass." can say some of it, because they do not know. "
Reply to this very yuck and unnecessary tweet included:
" 1. She is a smaller one. 2. This is the exact reason she doesn't have it tight clothes and always wearing baggy tracksuits or whatever. Has some stinging respect. "" 19659011] "Whether shes is legal in your country" or not … (your words, not mine), she shows a little piece of skin you jump to lens her. GTFO here with that kind of shit. She is still young and does not need adult assassins who permeate it. "
" That's exactly why she wears clothes that cover her completely. Not just her but so many women out there. Delete this, you're sick "
And of course, some people used memes to patch back:  Moral of the story: Let's just stop talking about the bodies of others on Twitter, umtay?
