Ariana Grande Shuts Down Sexist Body Shamer With Powerful Post (PHOTO)

 Ariana Grande Fragrance Launch Macys Herald Square 2015Warning, haters: Ariana Grande isn't going to stand for any body-shaming comments ... especially when they pit her against other young celebs, and especially when they're posted on her own Instagram account! The 22-year-old pop star recently reposted a nasty remark someone left on her Instagram, along with an insightful reaction that completely puts this guy to shame.

The commenter chose Grande's Instagram account as the place to share his oh-so-enlightened opinion that he'd "prefer" Modern Family actress Ariel Winter to Grande, because "curves are sexy sticks aren't." Alrighty then! Because I'm sure you're ever going to have to make that choice, buddy.

"Sigh… tweets, comments, statements like this are not okay. About anyone!!!" Grande wrote when she shared the comment (very kindly omitting this jerk's name -- something she really didn't have to do). Sigh, indeed!

"Diversity is sexy! Loving yourself is sexy! You know what is NOT sexy? Misogyny, objectifying, labeling, comparing and body shaming!!!" Hear, hear, Ariana! If you ask me, the comparison aspect of this whole thing is the most insidiously damaging. As Grande points out, it's so difficult for ANYONE to "embrace themselves exactly how they are," when even the most successful, beautiful women are pitted against each other.

For her part, Winter, who, mind you, is only 17 years old, reposted Grande's Instagram, writing, "Thank you @arianagrande for posting this. I love the message you're putting out there. I especially believe in today's world we all need to stick together- I believe in EMPOWERING other women and not putting them down. I celebrate everyone for who they are because that is what makes them beautiful. You ARE beautiful."

Right on, ladies! There's something so exciting about this recent wave of female celebs forcefully and vocally advocating for body acceptance diversity, and empowerment -- from Zendaya's defense of her Oscars look, to Amy Schumer's speaking honestly and candidly about her own body issues.

Yes, yes, this is the same girl who once got caught on camera licking donuts and making stupid comments about hating America. Grande is also young and human, and it's clear she's really coming into her own as a strong woman who wants to be a positive voice in the world. This isn't the first time that Grande has spoken out against misogyny and body shaming. During a recent interview with Radio Station Power 106 Los Angeles, she shot down her idiotic hosts who kept asking inane, sexist questions about makeup, cell phones, and unicorn emojiis.

When they finally asked her what she wanted to change in the world, Grande had an awesome reply: "I have a long list of things I'd like to change, I think judgment in general. Intolerance, meanness, double standards, misogyny, racism, sexism. All that sh*t. That’s what we need to focus on. We’ve got work to do. We'll start with you, though."

Watch the clip for yourself, and try not to give her a virtual high five! You go, Grande.
