“You never know what someone is going through,” she added in the April 11 video. “So even if you are coming from a loving place and a caring place, that person probably is working on it or has a support system that they are working on it with, and you never know, so be gentle with each other and with yourselves.”
As she continues filming Wicked, she asked fans to be “gentler and less comfortable commenting on people’s bodies, no matter what.” And even if the remarks are “well intentioned,” Ariana added that “we just shouldn’t” speak on physical appearances.
“There are ways to compliment someone—or to ignore something that you see that you don’t like—that I think we should help each other work towards,” she continued. “Just to aim towards being safer and keeping each other safer. There are many different kinds of beautiful. There are many different ways to look healthy and beautiful.”
