When we first saw Liam Payne's bathing suit photo on Instagram, we were totally shocked, but it had nothing to do with his body! However, Liam has recently received a lot of hurtful comments about his weight, including a Daily Mail article mocking his "not-so-toned torso." It's apparently taken a toll on the One Direction singer, but he blasted his bullies in the most perfect way.
Liam joked about his weight by posting a photo with a pillow under his shirt.
Then, he got serious, writing about how it feels to be shamed for not having a "perfect" body.
"Is it wrong to be normal?" he wrote, "Or do I have to look like an Olympic swimmer just to get your approval into the cool kids or can I accept that the person I truly love thinks I'm the coolest kid in town anyway? Think I'll vote the second one."
We think it's totally sweet that his girlfriend Sophia Smith supports him, and that he only cares about her opinion. They really are made for each other! It's tough to speak out against hurtful comments, but Liam did a pretty good job responding to his haters. We appreciate his positive attitude and sense of humor, as always.
Do you think Liam did a good job responding to his bullies? Tell us in the comments!
