By now we all know that body shaming is so not cool. It takes a lot of self-confidence and inner peace to battle people who want to tear you down for your looks, especially for celebrities who are in the public eye all the time. That's why we're giving mad props to these awesome celebrities who shut down their body shamers and turned themselves into positive role models for fans everywhere.

It's easy to pick on famous people. Celebrity body shaming is an seemingly harmless way to make ourselves feel better about our love handles and thunder thighs. Especially when our fave stars have bodies that are almost literally carved out of stone. But online bullying and body shaming are so passé. And honestly, who cares about your love handles?! Take it from these awesome celebs: Loving your body in whatever shape it's in will bring you much greater happiness than losing a few pounds.

That's why we love how celebrities who were body shamed (like Carrie Fisher, Gig Hadid, and Tia Mowry ) have spoken up and fought back against their abusers and oppressors. It's time to spread a little love, and the best way we can do that is by ending the all the hatin'!

So put down the haterade and get scrolling through our list of awesome celebrities who awesomely shut it down.
