Selena Gomez then realized she has to respond back to these trolls and tell them off for spreading negativity on someone else’s body, but Selena also keep it classy with her response so she then explained herself in a sense. “I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays, she said,” says Marianne Garvey on January 17, 2023 Selena Gomez was also with her sister, Gracie Teefey, when responding to these hateful comments on her body. Gracie was also Selena’s date to the Golden Globes and her response to what Selena said was “yeah!” Which led to Selena laughing like crazy. “The incident comes the same week that the singer came back to instagram, which she’d left a few years ago because of all the negativity.” says Chelsea Stewart on January 15, 2023, according to Even after a break from social media from all that negativity, it still came right back to her right after she came back.
