Body shaming is quite a common concept where people knowingly or unknowingly give their unwanted opinion on someone’s body in a disrespectful manner. While you must have encountered such people and tried to end the awkward conversation in a hush, a woman’s savage response to such comments has won the internet.
The woman on Twitter, with username Gemmniqua, was in a similar position when she faced an unsolicited remark about her weight gain, but unlike most of us, she didn’t hold back and came up with a sassy response. On June 13, she shared that she had just entered her house when her mother’s friend said she had put on weight. To the uninvited opinion, she replied by mentioning that she thinks the same about them. She added that her response left her father laughing hysterically while her mother was in utter shock.
I walked into the house and my mum’s friend said I put on weight. I replied wow, I was thinking the same about you. My dad was bussing up and my mum was in utter shock.— 🌸🌺 (@gemmniqua) June 13, 2021

A number of people wrote that they loved her response while many shared that they would use it in the future.
