Fans are coming to Billie Eilish's defense against sexualized comments from a Twitter user, who referred to the 17-year-old Billboard charts mainstay as "thick" when sharing recent photos of the singer.
Per Insider, the since-removed tweet included that word, with follow-up tweets from the user's account arguing against the pushback using references to "bad guy" lyrics and parsing legalities. Fans, meanwhile, have continued with criticism on the nature of these comments, as well as reminders of previous remarks made on this exact practice by Eilish herself.
Eilish previously detailed the intention behind her aesthetic in a recent Calvin Klein ad campaign, noting the protection that "baggy clothes" provide her from such inane comments. "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath," she said. "Nobody can be like, 'she's slim-thick,' 'she's not slim-thick,' 'she's got a flat ass,' 'she's got a fat ass.' No one can say any of that because they don't know."
Wednesday, Eilish surprised fans in a disguise-assisted Ellen Show skit:
Earlier this month, Eilish urged her listeners to consider ditching meat and related animal products for a plant-based diet as part of a push for a better future.
"I know you think you're just one person and it 'won't change anything if you stop,'" Eilish said, "but that's ignorant and stupid."
