Camila Morrone

Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend, who is 20 years younger than the actor, hit back at commenters who criticized her for sharing a photo of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, who had a 25-year age gap, on Instagram in July 2019. “My God, people are so mean and, like, full of anger with people that they know nothing about,” she told viewers in an Instagram Story. “Uh, I guess I just hope on this Friday that people learn to, uh, live with a little less hatred and place their time and interest elsewhere. Because living without hatred feels pretty good.”

Chrissy Teigen

The Lip Sync Battle cohost spoke out in July 2019 after a photo of her wearing a swimsuit inspired a body-shaming meme. “I’ve had no ass forever,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “Is this new news to some of you? … F—kin lames wouldn’t be able to stop blabbering if I got my ass done either. bored as all hell, never can win!“

In July 2019, Sia denied claims that she wore blackface in a February 2011 performance at the Thebarton Theatre in Torrensville, South Australia. “For the swift fans trying to make out that I would ever do blackface please see this video,” she tweeted. “I was painting myself into the backdrop, it was a pre cursor to the wig.” The clip showed the “Chandelier” singer attached to what appeared to be a piece of cardboard.

Erika Jayne

The Pretty Mess author did not hesitate to put haters in their place after they came for her for sharing a nude photo of herself on Instagram in June 2019. “You sound threatened,” she told one, quipping to another, “You sound ashamed of your body. I’m not.” Her most vicious clapbacks came when commenters asked what her husband Thomas Girardi thought of the snap: “He thinks [it] great,” Jayne wrote. “Bet yours does too … don’t bother responding. Thanks.”

Britney Spears

The pop star clapped back at fans who claimed she no longer had control over her Instagram account in May 2019. “For those of you who don’t think I post my own videos, I did this video yesterday,” she said in a clip that showed her standing next to a rack of clothes. “So, you’re wrong, but I hope you like it.” The Grammy winner followed it up with a video of herself dancing to Rihanna‘s “Man Down” while showing off several different outfits.

Amanda Stanton

The Bachelor in Paradise alum clapped back at body shamers who criticized her slim physique on a before-and-after workout post. “I do not have an eating disorder and am naturally skinny,” she wrote on Instagram Stories in December 2018. “I’ve gotten skinnier throughout the years since having kids. That happens sometimes as people age. Everyone has different body types and everyone is beautiful exactly the way they are. Our differences and flaws are what make us unique. If you see someone making an effort to be healthy and take care of themselves, why hate on that?”

Kourtney Kardashian

The reality star shut down speculation she was expecting her fourth child after a video from Thanksgiving 2018 was posted that showed her holding her stomach in a mini-dress alongside ex Scott Disick. “No, but how good does my arm look in that last photo?” Kardashian responded to one commenter who asked if she was pregnant, in reference to a separate photo of the E! TV personality putting food on a plate.

John Legend

The “All of Me” crooner wasn’t going to stand for online bullies bashing Rita Ora for lip-synching during her performance at the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. When one commenter turned the lip-synching talk to Legend, he replied. “Fun fact. We all have to lip sync on this parade because the floats don’t have the capacity to handle the sound requirements for a live performance,” he wrote. “Hope y’all enjoyed it anyway. Know that if you come to my shows, the vocals are 100% live!”

Jessie J

The Bang Bang” singer gave fans a piece of her mind over growing comparisons between her and boyfriend Channing Tatum’s estranged wife Jenna Dewan’s looks in November 2018. “There is a story I have seen be written over and over again in the past few weeks that talks about myself being directly compared to another beautiful woman regarding our looks and people picking who they think is prettier,” she wrote on Instagram. “I have continuously tried to find something positive from this article … I am yet to … Who feels good from this story? I know I don’t … Is picking who is prettier and then continuing to say why a good activity for women to participate in? No … I am so disappointed and embarrassed that my name is even involved. It’s not something I stand for, at all. The musician also shared why the comments were so irksome. “I spent so much of my childhood trying to be comfortable in my skin just like so many other little girls,” she wrote. “I am a woman that supports ALL Women. I am a woman that loves ALL women and will not stand quietly when the media is teaching young girls to constantly compare who they think is prettier.”

Kelsea Ballerini

After the country singer stunned in a sparkly silver mini dress at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November 2018, she clapped back at an Instagram user who told her she needed to “lose some weight.” “Hi troll. listen. first of all, I’m not a model I’m a singer,” Ballerini replied. “Second of all, I’m not responding to this to give you attention because you don’t deserve that, I’m responding because I am a healthy, normal chick, which I pride myself on and work hard for, and want other young girls to see that and know that ‘skinny’ is not always the goal. And for you to think it’s okay to comment on my weight or size is disgusting. I’m going to get a burger now. Bye.”

Kelly Ripa

When an Instagram user commented in March 2018 that the LIVE With Kelly and Ryan cohost’s husband, Mark Consuelos, “tries to look taller” than his 5-foot-8 stature, Ripa clapped back, “He’s tall where it counts babe.” She also responded to trolls who accused her of having plastic surgery in August 2018, writing, “I’m gonna tell you right now. No nose job, and no veneers. I wouldn’t be sleeping in a retainer every night if I had. You guys do know how to make a girl feel special.”

Ariana Grande

The “No Tears Left to Cry” singer clapped back in May 2018 after a Twitter troll wrote that she “dumped” Mac Miller in May 2018 for Pete Davidson. “how absurd that you minimize female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them,” she tweeted before referencing Miller’s recent DUI arrest. “I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be. I have cared for him and tried to support his sobriety & prayed for his balance for years (and always will of course) but shaming / blaming women for a man’s inability to keep his s–t together is a very major problem. let’s please stop doing that.”

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian stood by her man when her husband, Kanye West, was scrutinized for sharing what some perceived to be bizarre posts on Twitter in regards to parting ways with business partners.

“To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this… your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary,” the KKW founder tweeted. “So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.”

Calling the “Famous” rapper a “free thinker,” she added, “Mental Health is no joke and the media needs to stop spitting that out so casually. Bottom line.”

Minka Kelly

Minka Kelly shut down rumors that her relationship with Jesse Williams ended the Grey’s Anatomy star’s five-year marriage to Aryn Drake-Lee. An Instagram user asked Kelly to clarify the reports on October 12, writing in an Instagram comment: “I hope the cheating rumors aren’t true. It would be disappointing.” The Friday Night Lights alum fired back: “They’re not. Hate for you to be disappointed. Glad I could clear that up for you. Now f–k off.”

Iggy Azalea

A Fancy response! When Nicki Minaj’s loyal legions bashed the “Black Widow” emcee Iggy Azalea for hitting no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, she took to Twitter to fight back. “Don’t flex someone else’s achievements. Just remember while [you’re] all at home online cracking jokes about artists etc that most of you have done NOTHING. NOTHING! With your lives.”

Sarah Jessica Parker

Mama Bear’s not having it! The typically feud-free Sex and the City star had a rare moment of online anger in April 2014 when a woman questioned if she was the mother of her twins. She responded to the woman, who then deleted her tweets. Later talking to The Edit, Parker said, “I can’t figure out what she hated so much about me that she did that. And I just can’t imagine anything lower than that. I can’t stand [it] when women say unfriendly things to other women.”

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi

Say what?! After followers bashed Snooki for getting pregnant to “outshine” her bestie JWoww, the Jersey Shore alum took to her blog to set the record straight. “If you knew Jenni & I personally, you would know we always wanted to be pregnant together,” she wrote. “I love Jenni like my big sister, she is everything to me, not fame. I would never try to ‘outshine’ her and, like real women, we support each other and always want the best for each other, not beat each other down.”

Khloé Kardashian

Sisterly support! After critics bashed 18-year-old model Kendall Jenner for showing her nipples on the runway at New York Fashion Week in February 2014, her older half-sister Khloe Kardashian tweeted, “She’s too dope for you 2 understand! Yall would trade places with her in a second. The hate is real! Lol bye haters! Basic bitches NOT wanted.”

Kristin Cavallari

Oh no, they didn’t! The former reality star got attacked for posting a selfie on Instagram while her Chicago Bears quarterback hubby Jay Cutler was sustaining a serious injury on the field. “I tweeted that BEFORE he got hurt. I know it seems like I only respond to haters but they drive me crazy when they have NO clue what they are talking about.”

Gabourey Sidibe

Burn! After walking the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globes, the American Horror Story actress was subjected to cruel comments on her size. She, in turn, took to Twitter, saying, “To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night.”

Selena Gomez

When an Instagram follower told Selena Gomez she should “burn in hell with cancer,” the Disney alum responded, writing, “The comment you left about cancer was absurd. How distasteful of a young woman. I have gone through that battle with fans and family members. You can dislike someone but to wish something that could happen to you or your family is uncalled for sweetheart. You won’t be winning anyone’s heart that way. Trust me. Educate yourself a tad more.”

Nikki Ferrell

Not her man! Juan Pablo Galavis was one of the more controversial Bachelors, so when he selected Nikki Ferrell to be his love, many warned the pediatric nurse to steer clear of him. “I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who is it that makes you happy and you’re set. Promise,” which she posted with the caption, “Truer words have never been spoken. I create the definition of my own happiness. Full heart. Open mind.”

Zelda Williams

After the tragic loss of Robin Williams in August 2014, the late actor’s daughter Zelda Williams asked her fans to report Internet trolls who were posting unpleasant images to her Twitter page. “I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.”


Ariana Grande

The “Problem” singer defended her half-brother, Big Brother star Frankie after a commenter called him “that homo.” “That ‘homo’ is the fiercest, most incredible, funniest, most intelligent, kind hearted and most LOVED person on the face of the planet! He also cleaned up his game and told the truth to everybody in the house WHICH by the way, nobody else on the show has done. so i don’t give a flying f–k if or when he comes home!!!”

Miley Cyrus

In defense of the twerk! The “We Can’t Stop” crooner got flack for her skin color after she made headlines for twerking all over the MTV VMAs stage in August 2013. “I know what color my skin is. You can stop with the friendly reminders bitch,” she wrote in response to an unknown follower.
