Trolls take to the internet to poke fun at Lady Gaga’s stomach during her halftime performance
Lady Gaga performed at the Super Bowl halftime show February 2. Many celebrities took to Twitter saying, “Wow @ladygaga killed the halftime show. Well done.” said @nickjones. Katy Perry, who did the halftime show two years ago, said on Twitter, “Rooting for you @ladygaga! You got this #LittleMonsters.”
“I LOVED the halftime show!” said sophomore Abbigail Hock, Lady Gaga fan. “[Lady Gaga] goes above and beyond with everything, so it was no surprise that it was good.” Hock, who is in color guard, added “my favorite part is the color guard. When me and my sister saw the glowing blades in the background, we freaked out!”
Trolls took to the internet “body shaming” Lady Gaga, poking fun at her stomach while she performed. @PoliticsGhost said, ”I can see why Lady Gaga was breathing so heavy, her stomach was protesting her #superbowl performance. #LULZ #Gaga #LadyGaga @LadyGaga.”
Cyber bullying is something that Fremont students should know all about after year and year of the cyber bullying videos we watch each and every year.
“Body shaming is ridiculous, and pathetic,” Hock said, “and it honestly made me upset when I saw all of it. People need to stop being petty.”
If you don’t know what a troll is, I offer my own definition. It’s a low life person who feels so bad about themselves that the only way to make them feel good is to make fun of someone else. Usually, they are 40-year-old men and women who have never had any relations in their life and live in their parent’s basement.
Lady Gaga took to Instagram in response.
“I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” Gaga said. “No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions. Thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. XoXo, Gaga.”
Lady Gaga’s response is taking the high road to the trolls. She could have been very rude, by body shaming the trolls, but instead she told everyone to be proud of their body, and not to cater to anyone to succeed, Which is very mature of her.
