This is why we can't have nice things - or agree on just about anything in this day and age. And the most recent flash point on the Internet? The size of Adele's waist and if its okay to be happy for her or not. (it is)
And for those who aren't sure how to feel (no one) we are here to be your moral compass. Okay, here it is, you can feel however you want about someone's weight-loss, the only thing you can't do, is expect others to 1.listen to your opinions or 2. give a sh*t.
And well, that's where Twitter gets it wrong, no one cares what they think, but when people get this upset over something as trivial as the weight of a celebrity, well, we have to grab the popcorn and soak up all the terrible takes.
So here we go, into the septic tank that is 'body positivity' Twitter. You know what isn't up for debate? The fact that those who are overweight have much higher chances of dying from COVID-19 but you wont hear people defending obesity as a underlying condition for Coronavirus.
These are the levels of mental gymnastics going down on Twitter - as if anyone is talking about Adele for any other reason.
I think we can celebrate Adele and her beauty without attributing that beauty to her weight loss.— Nabela Noor (@Nabela) May 6, 2020
Adele was beautiful then and beautiful now. She is radiating joy and warmth in every post and that deserves celebration.
Ur daily reminder that Adele has always been a motherfucking queen regardless of her weight. No one wants to see badly written articles about her “glow up”. It’s 2020. Stop commenting on women’s bodies. pic.twitter.com/neJyCU41B6— a (@bbmbabyyyy) May 6, 2020
I find it very weird how everyone is praising Adele for weight loss as if she was ugly before pic.twitter.com/aEobfj5cpi— angel (@invtble) May 6, 2020
I hate that y’all are only celebrating Adele now that she’s lost weight. Adele was always that girl and y’all are fucking whack. pic.twitter.com/WYlhiaeK4j— ? (@melaninbarbie) May 6, 2020
yes adele has lost a lot of weight, but she has always been beautiful regardless pic.twitter.com/c6NRmDVQFn— (@imchained2katy) May 6, 2020
Though some on Twitter still have some of their marbles, comments like these are sadly few and far in between.
Nothing fatphobic in saying Adele had a glow up.— Adunni Achebe (@_Adadioramma) May 6, 2020
If she didn't want compliments, she wouldn't have been serving us these hots pics.
Besides what do u pple have against weight loss?
Body positivity twitter really gats to chill.
Yes, Adele looks amazing. But Adele also looked amazing prior to losing a ton of weight. She has always been gorgeous and losing weight is not the thing that defines a person's beauty. There's nothing wrong with saying that she looks great but please avoid fat-shaming comments.— Rivka* (@Rivka898) May 6, 2020
Here come the same people who cheer for Lizzo being beautiful upset Adele got healthy and looks sexy af.— Nicole Arbour (@NicoleArbour) May 6, 2020
But “body positivity” right?
I love Adele, and I'm thrilled she's living life on her own terms. She looks happy. I don't love how society tells young people--particularly young women--that they're perfect in their own healthy bodies while simultaneously praising famous women for losing weight.— Charlotte Clymer ? (@cmclymer) May 6, 2020
Everyone was disgusted by Adele because of her body type and now all of a sudden everyone’s drooling over her. She’s always been gorgeous. Fuck society’s ugly ass standards.— ? Alorah ? (@alorahrixon) May 6, 2020
Adele lost a bunch of weight and people started tweeting how great she looks and then a bunch of other people started tweeting that we shouldn't associate losing weight with beauty and nothing summarizes Twitter or 2020 better than that.— Tom Segura AKA Mr. Ladybug (@tomsegura) May 6, 2020
So Adele posts 1 photo on Instagram and it instantly starts a global debate. Her impact remains unparalleled pic.twitter.com/c31YYuJfHM— Saint Hoax (@SaintHoax) May 6, 2020
Every @Adele impersonator is struggling today.— Bianca Del Rio (@TheBiancaDelRio) May 6, 2020
