Camila Cabello thanked followers for supporting her after recent photos of her wearing a bikini went viral.
Camilizers were out in full force to show love and support for the “Never Be the Same” songbird a few days ago when new images of the superstar drew the attention of body shamers.
Sadly, some online users made nasty comments about the “Havana” superstar’s body and physical appearance in the photos, and for obvious reasons, we’re not disseminating that sort of toxicity here.
Fortunately, it’s true what they say about love: it truly does conquer all. Camila took notice of the kind messages and responded with a message of gratitude.
Taking to her Instagram Stories on Friday (June 4), the musician wrote: “Thank u for the love yesterday and today, i love y’all.”
I kinda don't like when I wear a bikini and it looks like my stomach is bulging out a little but seeing Camila have the same thing was like "finally someone else who's stomach bulges in a bikini and if she doesn't care why should I?"— M 🌺 (@lovelyinsane89) June 4, 2021
the pictures of Camila Cabello on the beach in her bikini looking like a real, normal person with a real, normal(beautiful) body and the reporter didn’t make any comment other than “she was on the beach,” made me v happy to see and I hope we keep this up— Kimberley Wolfe (@K_renee_Wolfe) June 6, 2021
Camilizers from around the world took to social media to drown out the hate with loving, assuring messages.
“I absolutely adore camila. she went out on a beautiful day to the beach with a bikini on and owned it. she doesn’t care about your opinion on her body. she feels good and looks good. now that is POWER,” one fan said of the 24-year-old’s appearance in the snaps.
Another supporter added: “YOU’RE A BEAUTIFUL NORMAL HUMAN WOMAN BEING, JUST LIKE THE REST OF US FLESHY BEINGS! This is normal, girls. Please follow the lead of real beauty and truth. Not superficial ideas that are unrealistic, dangerous & manipulating.”
