SelGo to Body Shamers
Selena Gomez says there's more to love.

Though the 22-year-old played it off by responding with a sexy photo of herself in a bathing suit saying there’s “more to love,” it didn’t stop the haters from continuing to criticize her curves.

So on Sunday, Gomez’s friend Abigail Breslin fired back. Taking to Tumblr, the Little Miss Sunshine actress slammed the body shaming haters:

“All this stuff about Selena Gomez online in her bathing suit is RIDICULOUS. Everyone is always saying how we shouldn’t judge each other, so why are you commenting on a gorgeous, talented and smart young girls body when she’s on the beach having fun with her friends AND SHE LOOKS AMAZING. Aren’t there more important things the world can be reporting on??”

Breslin continued raising the issue of young girls becoming at risk for eating disorders due to Hollywood’s unrealistic standard of thin.

She adds, “I think if we all took the time we spend making each other feel bad about ourselves and used it to make each other feel good, the world would be a better place. Oh and also if we taught girls they had more newsworthy qualities than how they fit into a bikini, we’d have a lot more happy girls.”

PEACH (insert hand-praising emoji here).

The young actress concluded her post, encouraging Gomez. “Selena, you look amazing and more importantly look like you’re having fun. Keep rocking those bikinis.”
