Billie Eilish Fans Are Sticking Up For Her After Internet Trolls Began Sexualising The Teen

Billie Eilish fans clap back at tweets calling her “thick”

This weekend heaps of fans gathered behind Billie Eilish, after an internet perv began sexualising the 17-year-old pop star.

Eilish has been avoiding this kind of attention her whole career, which makes sense because she’s a literal teenager. Last month she did a Calvin Klein campaign alongside other celebs like Troye Sivan and Kendall Jenner. And in the campaign video, Eilish explains why she is always dresses in loose clothing.

“Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. 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,” said Eilish.

So what did the internet go and do just one month later? Tweet images of her the first time she’s seen wearing something somewhat fitted saying she’s “thick”.

The tweet received a lot of attention, gaining thousands of likes and retweets. However, for the most part people were quick to clap back at the tweet because 1.) Eilish is a minor,  and 2.) she dresses in baggy clothing all the time to avoid this kind of attention.


However, the guy who opened the flood gates didn’t stop his cringey commentary there. He responded to the backlash from fans saying:  “She just should wear an Abaya and Hijab from now on.” WTF. Not only is this offensive because he’s sexualising a teen, he also went off and said something super culturally insensitive. It’s just way too far.

A 17-year-old (or anyone for that matter), shouldn’t have to worry about being sexualised for what they wear. While we do live in an age where women can be more openly sexual and find expressing their bodies empowering, if someone doesn’t wish for that attention, then people should be respectful of that.

The account tweeting the initial images of Eilish has since been suspended.
