Guess what Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Disha Patani and Dangal actor Fatima Sana Sheikh, among others, have in common? Each one of them have been slut-shamed and body-shamed for being too thin or too fat. Now, YouTube star Lilly Singh, popularly known as iisuperwomanii, is the latest to join the league of independent, well-known and strong women to be ‘schooled’ by the Internet.

When she put up a photo of hers in a black, semi-sheer bralette top and military pants on October 2, the comments’ section under the photo began flooding with remarks of people disapproving with the ‘sudden skin show’ and ‘exposing of cleavage’. So much so, one comment even read “you are more beautiful without cleavage”!

This is the Instagram post.

Here are some of the comments she received for the post.

And in complete ‘Bawse’ mode, Singh decided to address the ones who thought it was okay shaming her for living her life on her terms. Under a photo which has her looking stunning, she wrote in the caption thus:

“For most of my life, I didn’t expose much skin, not because I didn’t want to but because I felt guilty about it. I was taught that showing cleavage and legs is shameful and asking for judgment and trouble. As I grew up I teetered back and forth on this line between feeling sexy and feeling ashamed. Everyone had an opinion about what I wore on my body. Then I entered the entertainment industry and admittedly during shoots I often found myself feeling super confident, so I showed a little skin. But then, people assumed that I’m selling my body and resorting to sex without a choice in the matter. That’s not the case. All this to say, I’m now in a place where what I wear is simple. In fact, it only follows one rule: I wear what I feel comfortable wearing. Sometimes that’s a turtleneck and sometimes that’s a bikini. Either way, it doesn’t warrant your opinion, mistreatment or assumption. I think I look cute and if you disagree, feel free to dress differently. That’s the beauty of being different people ?????? sending you all positive vibes x #TomboyWithAFigah”
