How to defend yourself from bodyshaming Madonna should teach it in schools. She would be very capable, as her composed but decisive reaction to 50 Cent, the rapper who mocked the photos of the pop star in lingerie by posting a sarcastic comment: “This is the funniest stuff today. What a crazy thing, ”wrote the singer. Before adding: “This is Madonna under the bed trying to Like a Virgin at 63”.
Madonna’s response, similar to that of her daughter against those who criticized her for the hair in the armpits, was not long in coming. The star first published a series of photos in the company of 50 Cent, writing bluntly: «Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. I guess your new career is about getting attention by trying to insult others – the least choice I could make as an artist or adult. You’re just jealous of not being as beautiful as me or of not being able to have so much fun when you are my age. “
Apologies from 50 Cent
Feeling guilty or perhaps aware that he had hit too big a target, the rapper switched social networks and gave his apology to Twitter: «I’m sorry, I didn’t intend to hurt your feelings. I don’t benefit from it anyway. I said what I was thinking when I saw the photo. I hope you will accept my apologies ”, before deleting the tweet. When it is said that the patch is worse than the hole.
In response, Madonna has published a long video of over 2 minutes to explain her point of view more fully, demonstrating that she knows how to defend herself from the attacks of the haters. «You tried to humiliate me and make me feel ashamed. Yes, your apologies are false. Yours are invalid bullshit. Number one, it’s not hard to find footage of you and me going out. Number two, apologies aren’t valid if you don’t know what you’re apologizing for. What you should apologize for is your misogynistic, sexist, and age-based behavior and remarks. Number three, you haven’t hurt my feelings because I don’t take it personally. I could never take it personally because I don’t think you are so elevated on a human level. “
Not at all intimidated by her interlocutor, the singer continued her speech by exposing the inconsistency of her interlocutor: «Number four, you say that you are not benefiting from this feud. Sure, you are benefiting from it. This is what social media means. You understand that, right? We post stuff about ourselves and use Instagram and other forms of social media because we want attention. We want people to buy our products. We want people to invest in our brands. We want people to listen to our music. We want people to go to our concerts. We want people to notice us. We want people to love us. There’s nothing wrong with any of these things, but don’t fool us by saying you’re not benefiting from it. Stop lying to yourself, republish the posts of others that are intended to humiliate other people. ” Because as the singer wrote in her latest post: “In my corner, on my seat, I can be whatever I want”. And this too is a good lesson against the bodyshaming.
