Kelly Osbourne Fires Back at Tabloid for “Fat Shaming” Her

Life under the spotlight may sound like a glamorous and exciting thing, but it’s not all rainbows and sunshine as we get to see again and again. On the last day of November, Kelly Osbourne and her mom Sharon took to social media to share a screenshot about an article that was “fat-shaming” Kelly. She, of course, fired back.

The screenshot that Kelly shared with her fans showed an email sent by the National Enquirer about an upcoming story they had about the “tremendous amount of weight” that she has put on lately. The email came from the editor-in-chief, Dan Dolan, asking her to comment on the article. Instead of emailing him back, however, Kelly decided there was a better way to respond. Instead, she shared it with all of her followers and prompted them to “email Dan and tell him what you think about them fat-shaming me.”

The Hardest Year of Her Life Yet

While Kelly isn’t denying her weight gain, she’s opening up through social media about the reasons behind it. In her Instagram Story, the star shared that she has been dealing with an excessive amount of stress over her relapse, and she’s been handling it by eating. She has fortunately taken a step back from the public eye and the media to work on getting herself better and healthy again. Kelly says she is much healthier and happier now, but she is still putting herself back together again.

Kelly Osbourne’s mom was quick to speak up and defend her daughter, saying that she had a really tough year and is still recovering from it. “Shame on you” is her response to the upcoming article, claiming that such shaming practices can be really detrimental and “belittling” to Kelly in these difficult times.
