Self-proclaimed FFP (formerly fat person) Kelly Osbourne claims that comments about her weight when she was younger caused her to have a poor self-image. Even though she has recently lost 50 pounds, she says she will never consider herself skinny, that the teasing of the kids in her village hurt her badly.
I used to feel bad for Kelly Osbourne. How hard it must have been for her to grow up in the spotlight with a famous dad, a beautiful mother, and a childhood nickname that has, apparently, scarred her for life.
But then I read the comments she’s made about others, specifically Christina Aguilera, whom she called fat last year. In fact, she recently stated that she stood by what she said, because she was called fat by Christina for years.
“Now you know how it feels.”
It’s a comment Kelly says she stands by. “I didn’t say I wasn’t fat. I said, ‘Now you know how it feels,’” she explained, adding that she makes a point on “Fashion Police” not to say anything about anyone she wouldn’t say to their face.
“I’m famous, and she’s famous; it doesn’t mean I can’t stand up for myself. I took it for 10 years and decided to be like, ‘You know what? I’m done,’” she wrote and added that it’s the last thing she’s ever going to say about their feud. -Huffington Post
But, Kelly, don’t you remember how it feels? Why would you want to inflict pain like that on anyone else? Especially since you say it has affected your body image for life!
Shame on you.
In a world where we are faced with so much bullying and so many body image issues, you continue to spew hurtful words, even though you know how it feels. Did you endure all that hurt and shame only to pass it on to others?
You have apparently learned nothing from the challenges and hurts you endured in your childhood, and that reveals more about your true beauty (or lack thereof) than any amount of weight ever could.
