Fans of singer Lana Del Rey decrying body-shaming remarks that the artist has been subjected to on the internet.
After a fan tweeted, “Lana Del Rey with her new hairstyle at Blankenship Hair Salon in Tulsa, Oklahoma”, an army of trolls resorted to nasty body-shaming comments, saying that the singer needs to “go to the gym.” A user called her a “square face” and posted a picture of her with a middle finger, “Lana Del Rey is genuinely staying into a Karen in real-time.”
Lana’s fans quickly started showing support to the ‘Born to Die’ singer after trolls body-shamed her for her figure and hair and started rending the hashtag #WeLoveYouLana on Twitter while slamming trolls who criticize artists who aren’t “super skinny.”
Lana has been subjected to humiliating attacks before as well for speaking her mind and political views. In 2018, she was embroiled in a feud with rapper Azealia Banks where they go nasty with over Lana’s criticism of Kanye West. Lana denounced Kanye’s support for Trump saying, “Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss of culture.”
She has been accused of “glamorizing abuse” in wake of Black Lives Matter protests. To show solidarity with protests, Lana was continuously posting pictures from the protest on her Instagram that infuriated some artists who accused her of glamorizing abuse through her music.
She refused the allegations with a long note on Instagram targeting singers for their double standards. “I’m fed up with female writers and all singers saying that I glamorize abuse when in reality I’m just a glamorous person saying about the realities of what we are all now seeing are very prevalent emotionally abusive relationships all over the world,” she wrote.
