We may be in lockdown, but there hasn't been a shortage of celebrity scandals to keep us entertained.

From Billie Eilish stripping off to royal controversy, Kardashian drama to that problematic "Imagine" video, keep scrolling for the most savage celebrity clap backs, controversies, and burns of quarantine so far.

Just wait until you see number 1...

20. Chrissy Teigen claps back at trolls criticizing her "square body."

Chrissy Tiegen is a woman who stands for absolutely no-nonsense, and this clap back well and truly proved that.

Chrissy took to Twitter to share a video of herself rocking a black bathing suit...

And we must say, she looked absolutely incredible.

The mom was showered with compliments by fans...

But with the internet being the internet, cruel trolls began body-shaming Chrissy, with one even saying that she was “shaped like Sponge Bob."

Chrissy decided to address these cruel comments...

Firstly, she replied to a concerned fan with “yeah they’re super mean lmao."

She then addressed the "square-shaped" insult...

She then followed her tweet up with this: "Imagine if one day I showed up with hips and an ass. Ooooo you guys would be p***ed then too! I’m happy, John’s happy, we all happy and doing a-okay!" Pure genius...

19. Sam Smith's self-isolation meltdown.

Sam Smith has become one of the most successful pop stars of the decade, but their lockdown Instagram post caused quite a stir among fans.

After such an enlightening year coming to terms with their gender identity, it seems as though things have been going downhill for Smith.

While we’re all in quarantine, many celebrities have dented their careers with their “out of touch" posts.

And unfortunately, Sam Smith was one of them.

For the past few weeks, the singer has been on the receiving end of criticism from fans and haters alike and it was all because they decided to post about the fact that they were having a hard time in self-isolation…

...In their Los Angeles mansion.

A lot of people claimed that Smith was clearly so blinded by their fame and their security that they had no idea what all of us normal folks were struggling to deal with while they complained about being stuck in their million-dollar home.

The star clapped back during an interview when questioned about the controversial post:

“It wasn’t [a meltdown]. It was more – it was six weeks ago I posted a picture and everyone else was posting pictures, it was probably bad timing of me, but I use my social media as if it’s just my friends on it. “I posted with my humor and stuff, but it just didn’t get picked up very well, but I didn’t mean any malice by it at all." They added: “Yeah, you know me, I’m always sharing all of my feelings all the time and trying to be as human as possible but sometimes maybe people can read it [wrong] but that wasn’t really meaning it in a malicious or nasty way, I was just trying to be myself." So, it seems it was just a case of bad timing, right?

18. Alex Trebek destroys a contestant on Jeopardy!

Next up we have the one and only Alex Trebek, who basically roasted the entire nerdcore community in one fell swoop.

“Your favorite type of music is something I’ve never heard before but it doesn’t sound fun," Trebek prompted.

The contestant replied, “I think it’s very fun, it’s something called nerdcore Hip Hop —" “Nerd. Core. Hip Hop." Trebek interrupted.

“It’s people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners, you know? It’s really catchy and fun," explained the contestant.

But Trebek instantly shot her down. “Losers, in other words." Ouch!

Some were feeling sore...

Although we cannot wait to see the diss track that comes out of this.

But other fans were more forgiving...

Go on, guys! Own that “loser" title. This guy is truly a hero to the American public... We’re so glad he’s here to deliver these amazing TV moments.

17. Hillary Clinton tweets "best burn in history" to Donald Trump over disinfectant comments.

via: Getty Images

After President Trump shockingly suggested "injecting disinfectant" as a remedy for the ongoing medical pandemic, it forced the company who owns Dettol and Lysol to issued a warning that urges people against his dangerous recommendation. So, of course, Hillary Clinton couldn't resist a dig.

Trump casually suggested that these disinfectants could, in some way, be "injected" into the body as a method of combatting the virus.

“I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute," he said. “Is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that."

Even for Trump's standards, these claims are completely outrageous.

via: Getty Images

People are horrified that a man with such power and influence would offer such reckless and potentially deadly advice to his country.

Since his shocking claims, medical experts have been frantically urging people to not inject themselves with chemicals.

Dr. Jonathan Spicer tweeted: “No joke – we had a patient swallow Lysol as a #disinfectant a couple of weeks ago to prevent [the virus] infection. He made it out of the hospital after his gastrectomy…This kind of nonsense is absolutely mind-blowing."

It didn't take long for Hillary Clinton to chime in.

Just in case you still weren’t clear on the topic …

16. The Irwin Family responds to fans’ fury over Bindi’s TV wedding special.

On the 25th of March 2020, Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell finally said their “I do’s" and became husband and wife.

It was a small and private ceremony...

And last-minute changes were made due to the ongoing pandemic. Bindi wrote, “We held a small ceremony and I married my best friend. There are no words to describe the amount of love and light in my heart right now. We’ve planned this beautiful day for nearly a year and had to change everything, as we didn’t have guests at our wedding. This was a very difficult decision but important to keep everyone safe. We wish all of our friends and family could have been there with us, however, it’s lovely that we will be able to share photos and videos. “We had dad’s picture with his dog Sui blown up on an easel," she explained, “So mom and Robert were standing right next to dad as we exchanged vows. We had a candle-lighting ceremony for him, and it really felt like he was there with us. It was a lovely moment of peace and happiness."

Their wedding was filmed for a TV special.

Because, despite their ceremony being filmed in Australia, and the Irwin’s being Australian National treasures, the Oceania country will be the last to air the episode... and fans weren't happy.

So, quite understandably, Aussie fans are pretty put out by their decision.

Safe to say, the backlash was endless. Surely Australians should have the right to see their wedding before the rest of the world?

However, it seems the Irwin's had no control over air dates.

Bindi’s mom, Terri, weighed in on the situation herself, and promised to enquire about the Australian dates. “We don’t have an answer for that, as @AnimalPlanet is in charge of working through the scheduling for more than 200 countries and territories around the world. We would love to see the wedding special on earlier in Australia. We’ll pose the question and let you know!"

15. Piers Morgan slams Prince Harry in scathing rant about a recent video.

via: Getty Images

It's very rare when Piers Morgan isn't making headlines for his bold and often outrageous comments. Usually, Morgan's tantrums are targetted towards one person, in particular... take his vendetta against Meghan Markle, for instance. But this time, he directed his anger at her husband, Prince Harry, instead, in what has been described as a "scathing rant," leaving fans speechless after witnessing the meltdown.

Harry drew in negative attention for comments he made during a recent podcast.

via: Getty Images

Tucked away in his Malibu mansion, Prince Harry had been doing British families a service by connecting with them over video call where he expressed happiness about the state of the United Kingdom. However, a "misinformed" comment during a podcast really tarnished his positive energy.

What did he say?

via: Getty Images

Well, the royal claimed that everything was being “exaggerated," and that the effort by people around the country proves that “things are better than we are led to believe" during a podcast called Declassified.

And on Good Morning Britain we saw Piers reach boiling point while discussing the topic...

via: YouTube

Piers insisted Harry was “making it all about him again" after “ditching his country" and fleeing to the States. “I might remind him the world is in a war at the moment with a virus which is destroying lives and the lives of health care workers in this country. What was Harry’s contribution to this debate other than making it all about him again? To claim we’re all exaggerating this war."

He continued:

"The brass neck of this guy, who ditched his country..." “Now lives in a Malibu mansion, that I don’t think he even pays for, lecturing us that we are exaggerating a war. When we have had deaths of eighty health care workers. We are showing people the reality of this and we’re not reliant on a pampered little duke in his Malibu mansion." Things then took a very dramatic turn when his co-host Suzanna Reed opted to defend the pair: “Why do you excuse them? You heard what he said. We are exaggerating it. This crisis according to Prince Harry in his Malibu mansion is not as bad." Yikes.

14. Ricky Gervais slams celebs for whining about lockdown from their "mansions."

via: Getty Images

Amid the ongoing medical pandemic, millions of us have been required to self-isolate at home... celebrities included. And, while some of these famous faces have been taking to their social media platforms to send encouraging messages and provide some much-needed entertainment for the rest of us, others have been expressing their anguish (like Sam Smith and Ellen, for instance.)

Gervais had previously remained relatively quiet regarding the whole situation.

The comedian is self-isolating at home with his long-term partner, Jane, and his only address by this point had been one Instagram message, which read: “Stay well. Take vitamins. Wash your hands. Don’t be selfish. Make sure an elderly relative has everything they need. Some are too proud to ask. Be sensible. Drink at home. Everything you love doing you can do in a few weeks. Cheers."

But, he came down like a ton of bricks on all the celebrities currently complaining about their lockdown...

via: Getty Images

Speaking to the British tabloid, The Sun, Gervais said: “After this is over I never want to hear people moaning about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people moaning about nurses again. Or porters."

He pointed out how it is our health care workers who deserve to be complaining...

via: Getty Images

Not our privileged celebrities. “These people are doing fourteen-hour shifts and not complaining. Wearing masks, and being left with sores, after risking their own health and their families’ health selflessly."

He made it clear he's enough of these futile complaints.

via: Getty Images

“Then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a swimming pool. And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it."

13. Fans think Johnny Depp subtly addressed the Amber Heard conflict in his first Instagram post.

via: Getty Images

Throughout Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface. So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their “I do"s.

At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious...

via: Getty Images

With many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited “irreconcilable differences" while filing the divorce petition. And only a few months into their separation, Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her. Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

It was a big allegation to make...

via: Getty Images

And, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence. But people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

There was an outpour of support for Amber, who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union’s “Ambassador for Women’s Issues."

via: Getty Images

Last year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber, and presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around. The lawsuit states that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false," and listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks. “She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me," his lawsuit read.

And, to tarnish the actress' reputation and credibility even further...

Audio obtained by the Daily Mail was released that heard her admitting to attacking Johnny. “You are such a baby. Grow the f*** up, Johnny. You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn’t matter how friendly it is, it’s not cool," Amber can be heard viciously saying.

Recently, Johnny joined Instagram.

But his first post quickly became the talk of the town, because fans think he subtly addressed the Amber Heard scandal. “On a more personal note, thank you all for your kindness, your unwavering support and your strength over these years," he says during the eight-minute video, which many think is a nod to the Amber situation.

12. Ricky Gervais taking another swipe at celebs following that "Imagine," video.

Gervais ripped into the stars of Gal Gadot’s "Imagine" video - and while they weren't whining about isolating in their luxury homes, Gervais thinks they’re just as bad.

We all know that viral clip posted by the Wonder Woman star, in an attempt to lift spirits... Well, Gervais thinks they have ulterior motives. He's clearly tuned in to the people...

Ricky lay into the stars of the video during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live, branding them “self-promoting" for taking part in the singalong. He said: “That Imagine video, it’s not that bad, they’re probably very nice people. It was an awful rendition, but they might have been doing it for good reasons, to help these normal nobodies."

He's always shedding light on the reality behind the glitz and glamour.

via: Twitter

He said: “There are people in high rise blocks with three kids – I can’t complain, this is why millionaires in their mansions with their gym and going for a swim can’t lecture people.

He clearly has no time for millionaires lecturing us normal people on how to live our lives...

via: Twitter

He continued: “They’re going ‘My film’s coming up and I’m not on telly – I need to be in the public eye’, not all of them but some of them. “You can see in their eye – ‘I could cry at the beauty of my personality, I’m just so beautiful for doing this’ and everyone sees that – we get it."

Watch his interview below:

Finally, someone’s speaking some truth!

11. Kylie Jenner claps back at troll who body-shamed her.

After a troll decided to pick apart Kylie's post-baby appearance., the beauty mogul was forced to clap back.

It was all sparked by this comment:

“wow she’s so skinny here," wrote one commenter on an older picture of the beauty mogul, prompting another to respond with: “she was better."

The mom-of-one previously spoke about her post-baby bod in a YouTube video...

“My boobs are … 3 times the size, which bothers me. I have stretch marks on my boobs. My stomach isn’t the same, my waist isn’t the same, my butt’s bigger, my thighs [are] bigger," she said. “And honestly, I’m finding I have to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits me from before."

She has no time for body-shaming.

Quite rightly!

So, Kylie clapped back at the troll with a simple message:

“i birthed a baby." You tell 'em, Kylie!

10. Miley Cyrus responds to Chris Hemsworth throwing shade at her following her split with Liam Hemsworth.

via: Getty Images

Just 8 months after Miley and Liam tied the knot, the once Hollywood "it" couple announced that they were calling it quits… Again, and since then, it's been a saga, to say the least.

Liam has remained pretty tight-lipped about the split.

via: Getty Images

But his brother, Chris, couldn't resist making a little dig at Miley.

The actor spoke about how well Liam is doing, and how he had relocated back to Australia for a “better lifestyle."

via: Instagram

And, when discussing the reason that Liam is in such great shape, he said: "We got him out of Malibu!" Liam and Miley had a home together in Malibu, California, before their split, and the singer also wrote the song “Malibu" about their relationship.

Miley got well and truly burnt, and after getting wind of the comment...

A source spilled to the entertainment portal, “Miley is aware of the comments but she won’t respond." The source went on to explain Miley's current situation: “She’s not with Liam anymore and is very happy in her current relationship so as far as she’s concerned it’s just none of her business what Liam or his family says. She already spoke her truth with her music, she’s moved on now. She’s happy and in love and she’s putting her energy into trying to help as much as she can in this current crisis."

Apparently, Miley no longer wants to be petty.

“Miley‘s focused on the here and now, she isn’t looking backwards. And she doesn’t want to be petty. She wants to move on and hopes that Liam and all the Hemsworths will move on as well. “Miley‘s focus is her family, her dogs, her relationship with Cody and her Instagram show that all this week has been about talking to people who are making a difference in the world. Miley wants to make a difference and not get wrapped up in a celebrity feud especially with an ex. It provides no progress to anything at any time. Miley is cool moving forward and that’s that," the source then added.

9. Jeff Lowe responds to the conspiracy that he's Carole Baskin’s ex-Husband.

Netflix's Tiger King took the internet by storm, but one of the biggest conspiracy theories to come out of it was that Jeff Lowe was Carole Baskin's ex-husband - no, not the one who went missing (or was murdered and fed to the tigers, depending on who you ask), but her first husband, who she said was abusive.

High-key conman and Las Vegas lothario Jeff Lowe is one of the men who helped the authorities put Joe Exotic behind bars.

The theory was shared to Facebook, with one fan writing: “Jeff is Carole’s abusive first husband who she paid off to go take Joe down. She rented a mansion and that caw to draw him in. “Jeff and (James Garretson) even admit they directed Joe to kill Carole. When Joe didn’t do it, they needed him to pay, he didn’t. So Jeff sent his friend and he ‘chickened out’ on purpose."

They continued:

“Carole then paid them all off. All the convicts around him, except (Kelci Saffery) and (John Reinke). Too bad I wasn’t the police investigator, I would of definitely caught this bull****." “Jeff even told the cops about the Tiger skulls, because they didn’t have enough to keep him otherwise on the bogs ‘killing plot’."

People went crazy on social media...

And soon enough, Jeff himself spoke out about the rumors, and his response was pretty bizarre.

Jeff took to Reddit to address the allegations that he was Carole's husband...

A fan questioned Lowe on his thoughts on the theory, asking: “There’s a conspiracy all over the internet this week that you were Carole Baskins’ first husband. Have you seen the picture comparison and what’s your take on this? She doesn’t seem like your type!" He replied: “You’re a brilliant man and she is not my type. If I was stuck on a deserted island with her, I would f*** a coconut. I’ve seen the side by side pictures. It looks more like John and Joe’s love child." Ouch.

8. Bruce Willis quarantining with ex-wife, Demi Moore, instead of his current wife.

via: Instagram

The internet was left slightly confused when it was revealed that Demi Moore was lockdown-ing with not only her 3 kids and their partners, but with her ex, Bruce Willis. Of course, its natural she'll want to be with her kids, but people couldn't understand why Bruce wasn't quarantining with his current wife, Emma Hemming.

Of course, it is truly refreshing to see a divorced couple maintaining a strong and healthy friendship...

And from the looks on everyone’s faces, it has formed an incredibly happy family environment.

However, there has been one thing on everyone's mind.... what did Emma think of all this?

It must be hard having your husband choose to lockdown with his ex. But, shockingly, Emma commented on the family photo featuring both Demi and Bruce, writing: “Not many can pull that color off! Lookin good squad." So, she seemed to be cool with it.

Despite their unconventional quarantine set-up, sources have revealed this:

A source told People: “Demi and Emma are close, and all three get on great as a big blended family. There are no issues at all. Emma needed to stay in L.A. with the young kids." "Demi and Bruce have been best friends for years. “They are really close."

So, it seems the set up is working...

Despite all the controversy surrounding it.

7. Ryan Reynolds trolls Hugh Jackman over his wedding anniversary post.

via: Getty Images

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have a "long-standing feud," but in reality they are best pals who simply like to troll each other once in a while. In fact, they constantly roast each other, the way only real buds can, and it seems pretty fundamental to their friendship.

So, when Jackman posted a soppy anniversary post dedicated to his wife, Reynolds knew it was time to pounce.

via: Getty Images

And it was his most hilarious trolling yet.

The Wolverine star posted this photograph to his Instagram:

And his caption was cute as hell. He wrote: “These 24 years have been the best of my life! And, as far as I can see, we keep getting better. I love you Debs with every fiber of my soul. Happy anniversary. #24."

But instead of gushing over the couple like everyone else was, Reynolds commented this:

via: Instagram

Ouch.

Looks like a truce is definitely off the cards.

We live for this content.

6. Barack Obama takes a swipe at Donald Trump at his handling of the pandemic.

via: Getty Images

Between calling it the "Chinese virus" and telling people to inject themselves with disinfectant, it's safe to say that Trump hasn’t exactly been praised for his handling of the ongoing medical crisis. And Barack Obama was one of the long list of people who took a swipe at him for it.

Obama took part in a virtual meeting arranged by Bloomberg Philanthropies...

via: Getty Images

In which he gave advice to a group of America’s Mayors on how to effectively be a leader throughout the pandemic.

He first urged them to consistently "speak the truth."

via: Getty Images

“Speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Speak it with compassion," he said. “Speak it with empathy for what folks are going through." It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is definitely one of Trump’s downfalls…

He then went on to warn them of the "biggest mistake" a leader can make in this crisis.

via: Getty Images

“The biggest mistake any [of] us can make in these situations is to misinform, particularly when we’re requiring people to make sacrifices and take actions that might not be their natural inclination." Burn.

Though no names were called...

via: Getty Images

It was pretty obvious that he was referring to Trump’s frequent, and rather embarrassing blunders and mistakes during his press conferences.

5. And it didn't end there... Obama took yet another swipe at Trump.

via: Getty Images

Considering Obama rarely ever weighs into the work of other presidents – mostly using his Twitter account to praise frontline workers and share advice from public health experts, this is a big deal.

The former President took to Twitter to air his views.

via: Getty Images

“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic," he wrote, without directly naming the president.

He continued:

“We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall," he added, linking to an article below announcing the rollback of environmental mileage standards put in place by the former president 8 years ago.

4. Kourtney Kardashian breaks her silence after quitting Keeping up With the Kardashians.

We all know about that shell shocking fight that Kourtney and Kim had on air during a recent episode of the show, and it seems that Kourtney finally snapped - announcing that she was quitting the hit reality series.

Can't remember? Let us refresh your memory...

via: YouTube

In the dramatic clip, Kim and Kourtney end up getting physical with each other, and as things begin to get heated, Kim throws a punch at her sister. Kim even later revealed that production on the show had to be shut down temporarily following the heated fight.

Tensions seemed to be running high amongst the family...

After continuous arguments with Kim, Kourtney decided enough was enough and it was time to remove herself from the toxicity of the reality show.

Kourtney confirmed this on Instagram...

On one of her posts, a fan commented, “Kourtney just needs to quit the damn show! I’m over her not wanting to film," to which Kourtney replied swiftly with, “I did. Bye."

And on another episode of KUWTK...

Kourtney was heard saying, “I don’t like being a celebrity… I’m taking a break from the show. Now I can focus on me and plan my time of being a mum." She then told the camera, “I want to be fulfilled and happy – life is too short."

3. Piers Morgan rips into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new brand name.

via: Getty Images

Piers has always made his thoughts on Meghan quite clear, although at one point the pair were actually friends. But, when she stopped replying to his calls, Piers grew to become rather bitter and has continuously blasted Meghan, both in his columns and live on air on his breakfast show, Good Morning Britain.

He's brandished her as a "ruthless status seeker" in the past...

And has continuously blamed her for “tearing apart the royal family."

This particular outburst was all triggered by a recent announcement from the couple. The announcement shocked the world as both Harry and Meghan revealed they would be launching a new charity named “Archewell."

Following the announcement, Piers took to twitter where he emphasized that no one really cares about what they are up to because we have bigger things to be worrying about.

And it seems as though a lot of people agreed with him.

This British user wrote: “There’s a time and a place to make announcements and now really isn’t the time, what would have been nice is a message of support to a country they say to love and best wishes to our PM."

2. Billie Eilish responds to backlash after posting a bikini video online.

The eighteen-year-old music sensation is known for being a quirky character with an out-there fashion sense, but, when she bared some skin during a video, the response was huge.

Billie has been open about why she chooses to dress in oversized clothes...

Her choices in fashion – which strongly consist of baggy, oversized clothes – are picked to protect herself from her global audience body-shaming her and judging her on her natural appearance. “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 a**,’ ‘she’s got a fat a**.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know," she explained in an interview last year.

Taking to Instagram, Billie posted an incredibly short video of herself wearing a bikini on vacation.

Despite the fact you can only see the top of Billie’s shoulders, many people slammed her online calling her all sorts of crude names, including a 'wh*re'...

So, she decided to clap back at the trolls.

"It was trending. There were comments like, ‘I don’t like her anymore because as soon as she turns eighteen she’s a w***e.’ Like, dude. I can’t win. "I saw comments like, ‘How dare she talk about not wanting to be sexualized and wear this?!'"

She continued:

"If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it. "People would be like, ‘You’ve changed, how dare you do what you’ve always rebelled against?’ I’m like, ‘I’m not rebelling against anything, really.’ I can’t stress it enough. I’m just wearing what I wanna wear."

1. It didn't end there for the star, however.

via: Getty Images

The singer was faced with more backlash when she revealed her body on stage.

Billie kicked off her Where Do We Go world tour in Miami earlier this year, where she premiered a powerful video about body shaming.

via: Getty Images

The video was showcased during the interlude of her debut show and showed Billie slowly taking off her clothes alongside a powerful message voiced by the singer.

A video of Billie standing in an over-sized black sweater was projected over the stage...

And, narrating the video, Billie’s voice can be heard questioning everyone who has ever body-shamed her. Her narration starts by saying: “You have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body."

Billie's speech moved on to discuss her own personal experiences with fame and body-shaming, as she said:

via: Twitter

“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it, some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me — but I feel you watching. Always, and nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move."

And, as she gradually removes more clothing and exposes her chest in a plain black vest, she questions:

via: Twitter

“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips?" But, of course, her decision wasn't without the risk of backlash, and while she received a ton of praise for the move, others weren’t so impressed and claimed that, because of her showing her shoulders, stomach, and chest, they had ultimately “lost respect for her." Yep, really.

Billie responded to the haters.

In an interview with Dazed, Billie opened up about the incident and pointed out that, no matter what she wears, she’s going to receive hate and backlash. “If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it. People would be like, ‘You’ve changed, how dare you do what you’ve always rebelled against?’ I’m like, ‘I’m not rebelling against anything, really.’ I can’t stress it enough. I’m just wearing what I wanna wear." Well said, Billie!
