It's never okay to make fun of the way someone looks, and that's exactly what Charli XCX is setting out to prove. The "Boom Clap" singer was recently the target of some rude comments on social media, where someone wrote that her skin always looks dirty. The artist responded by tweeting that her darker complexion and freckles aren't dirt in any way, and she's proud of the heritage behind them.
i am extremely proud of my indian heritage. i love my roots & my family. don't call me/anyone "dirty" bcoz of the colour of someone's skin.— CHARLI XCX (@charli_xcx) February 21, 2016
Charli definitely shouldn't have to defend her appearance or nationality to anyone, but she shut down impolite words in such a bold way!
