No matter what you think about Bella, this is way out of line.
Just an FYI: Bella Thorne is not okay with people using 'unflattering' pictures of her to purposefully body shame her and she WILL destroy you if you attempt to even try it.
A few days ago, blogger Perez Hilton uploaded this picture of Bella Thorne to his Instagram alongside the caption, "Fill in the blank! @BellaThorne __________."
Not only did Perez add a caption that encouraged and invited his followers to make horrible, body shaming and offensive remarks about Bella's appearance in the photo (which, of course, they did), he tagged all of her ex-boyfriends, former co-star Zendaya and the Disney Channel. This is apparently something he does with every photo to help maximise the amount of people who see the picture but when paired with the caption, it's absolutely awful.
People caught wind of the comments under the photo and accused Perez of setting Bella up with a string of negative comments from his followers about her body to which he replied 'I disagree. xoxo'.
Bella then entered the ring to unleash her feelings on the choice of 'unflattering' picture and set the record straight about her feelings on the exploitation of her body image for clicks and views.
Honestly I don't. You know I love you p but I think it's kinda rude to use the pic my shirt is riding up and I'm in the middle of talking https://t.co/9UiPsDzCmj— bella thorne (@bellathorne) September 14, 2017
Esp when there's a lot of great photos. Kinda seems like you want more people to pick on me. :( if I wasn't sad enough about it already https://t.co/9UiPsDzCmj— bella thorne (@bellathorne) September 14, 2017
And then you tag charlie and like other guys on my body trying to start drama and trying to make me feel disgusting..like they own my body. https://t.co/9UiPsDzCmj— bella thorne (@bellathorne) September 14, 2017
Perez later responded and apologised for the 'misunderstanding' but then also later revealed that he would 'do it again'... which he did a few days later with Ariel Winter.
That was just so the photo would come up in more searches. Didn't occur to me you would interpret it that way. Sorry again.— Perez (@ThePerezHilton) September 14, 2017
YOU WOULD DO IT AGAIN!? R u serious? Yeah you would like posting a photo of Ariel in a bikini to get views on a podcast? https://t.co/LbYZ5kSNWF— bella thorne (@bellathorne) September 14, 2017
