Ariana Grande put a Twitter body-shamer on blast earlier this week after the person compared her body to that of Modern Family star Ariel Winter, who soon joined the conversation.

On Monday, Grande tweeted, “Here we go again… Sure I’m not the only 1 feeling this way today!! in case you need a reminder you are beautiful.” The post accompanied a tweet that read, “Got asked if I’d prefer @arielwinter1 or @ArianaGrande lol, it wud DEFINITELY be @arielwinter1 curves are sexy sticks aren’t.”
Grande also included her reaction to the disparaging tweet, which included her frustration with people “talking about people’s body’s [sic] as if they’re on display ASKING for your approval/opinion.”
The pop singer wrote, “sigh…. tweets, comments, statements like this are not okay. about anyone!!! we live in a day and age where people make it IMPOSSIBLE for women, men, anyone to embrace themselves exactly how they are. diversity is sexy! loving yourself is sexy! you know what is NOT sexy? misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!!”
“CELEBRATE YOURSELF. CELEBRATE OTHERS,” Grande added. “The things that make us different from one another make us BEAUTIFUL. BODY BOUNDARIES. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ONLY.”
Winter retweeted Grande’s post and wrote, “Thank you @ArianaGrande. Women should empower one another. Celebrate each other- you’re all beautiful.
