On the ‘Dear….’ docuseries, published by Apple TV+ on Thursday, Selena Gomez discusses the impact of nasty remarks from online bullies. The singer claims she lied about not being impacted by the body shamers, but in actuality, she would be sobbing in the room.

Selena Gomez claims she would go online and publish a photo to remind herself that she would not accept what people say. But she’d still weep because no one should hear such things. The singer said that she shared photographs claiming that it didn’t affect her, but in truth, she didn’t want it to upset others who were going through similar experiences. ‘Getting stigmatized for what they look like, who they are, who they love, I just think it’s really unjust,’ Gomez concluded.
Selena Gomez said that she was diagnosed with lupus in 2014, but that despite the unpleasant side effects of the condition, people couldn’t wait to tear her down. ‘I was being chastised for gaining weight because of my lupus,’ she said.
Gomez advises individuals not to be embarrassed of themselves since no one knows their whole experience.
