  • Twitter quickly came to Billie Eilish's defense when a user tried to comment on her body.
  • Reminder: Billie is 17 years old.

    While the weekend is generally a good time to relax, upload and just have fun, I also feel like we all would take a while on Sunday to suck in a very important lesson: DO NOT come for Billie Eilish on Twitter.

    The 17-year-old emo-pop singer – which I'm sure you've heard of before, but if you don't, how dare you – was out and about recently, and she loved letting a fan take a picture with her. But no good action goes unpunished, and someone found that image (where Billie carries a tank) and decided that it would be a good idea to send it on Twitter along with the bulky commentary "Billie Eilish is thick."

    Twitter went OFF on this person for many reasons, including a) objectivating women are not cool in general b) Billie is literally a minor and c) she usually has sackcloth clothes, so it is obvious she does not want to pay attention to her body .

    In fact, Billie has previously talked about how she usually wears dressed clothing for this EXACT reason and says: "I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, therefore, I wear big, bad clothes. No one can get one opinion because they have not seen what is underneath, you know? No one can be, "Oh, she is slim thick, she is not slim thick, she has a flat butt, she has a thick butt." No one can say anything of that because they don't know it. "

    Answer to this very yuck and unnecessary tweet included:

    "1. She is a minor. 2. This is the exact reason she does not wear frequent clothes and always wears bags or whatever.

    "Whether shes is legal in your country" or not … (your words, not mine), the minute she shows a little bit of skin, you jump to objective her. GTFO here with that shit. still young and do not need adult butt men perving it up. "

    "That's exactly why she wears clothes that cover her completely. Not just her but so many women out there. Delete this, you're sick"

    And of course, some people used memes to pat:

    Moral of the story: Let's just stop talking about others' bodies on Twitter, sometimes?
