Kelly Clarkson Unaffected By Fat-Shaming Former Reality Star: “Who Is She?”

Kelly Clarkson was the subject of some tweeted insults — or attempted insults from columnist and former reality tv star Katie Hopkins. Hopkins tweeted about Clarkson’s size, throwing out lines like “Happily I have wide-screen,” and going on to rant about ‘fat love’ and the apparent weak wills that, according to Hopkins, cause us to ‘make up names’ for our fat.

After two days of being called out by Kelly Clarkson fans, and people who simply don’t abide nasty body-shaming comments, Hopkins tweeted in her defense, denying that she was guilty of fat-shaming — because she says fat-shaming doesn’t exist.

Of course, while Kelly Clarkson’s fans were defending her, Clarkson (who, incidentally, was praised for “looking like a real-life new mom” a few months after giving birth) was probably crying in a corner and eating donuts in despair at being trash-talked, right? Uh, no. Seems the American Idol star and new mom was too busy to notice or care what Hopkins thought of her.

That’s right — earlier this week, Heat World caught up with Clarkson and asked her how she felt about the whole thing. One problem — before she could answer, someone had to explain to her who Katie Hopkins was, and what exactly had happened!

Once it was explained to her, Clarkson laughed it off.

Oh, and she’s tweeted something nasty about me? That’s because she doesn’t know me,” she said. “I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.

Hopkins seems to have taken this permission to heart — she’s still going, talking to ET to insist that her criticism is helpful. She’s not only helping Kelly Clarkson, she says, but the singer’s eight-month-old baby, who is, apparently, doomed to be obese if her mother doesn’t take Hopkins’ advice (which she so cunningly disguised as heckling.)

Every fat child has a fat parent. And that’s — for me — why Kelly Clarkson is an important example. She needs to allow her daughter to grow up knowing that it’s not great to be fat. It’s much better to be healthier.

Tweeting about the article, Hopkins quoted herself, again offering helpful weight-loss advice that must’ve only coincidentally come across as a snide insult.

She’s also still tweeting about it.

How much does Kelly Clarkson care?

Well, while Katie Hopkins (whose documentary, ‘My Fat Story,’ appears to have gotten a few new downloads from the publicity) has tweeted dozens of times about the singer, the story, and all the folks defending Clarkson, on the beloved musical artist’s Twitter timeline we see…tweets about her music and her baby. There’s not one defensive tweet, not one tweet about the columnist, not one angry or hurt word. Looks like Kelly Clarkson still isn’t sweating it.
