Despite all the attention that body positivity has gotten over the past few years, there are still people out there (read: internet trolls) who insist on commenting on every wrinkle, blemish, or stretch mark a woman might have. Body shaming is a pervasive problem, but luckily, there are also plenty of people working to combat it. When Camila Cabello spotted body-shaming comments directed at her, she clapped back with the perfect response about impossible body standards.

According to Billboard, on August 3rd, the “Señorita” singer shared a post in her Instagram stories that got real about body shaming. She wrote that while trying to post a picture in honor of the second anniversary of “Havana,” she found comments criticizing her appearance.

She added:

Cabello is absolutely right that cellulite is common. According to Self magazine, it’s estimated that between 80% and 98% of women have it. Regardless, other people’s bodies shouldn’t be topics of public discussion. We need more people like Cabello to help normalize the imperfections we all have—and to call out the ridiculous standards women are held to.
