Fans of Billie Eilish recently came to her defense on Twitter after a photo surfaced online causing some Twitter users to begin objectifying the 17-year-old.
The artist was recently photographed wearing a white fitted tank top under a baggy sweatshirt. The attire differed from her usual baggy clothes, sparking tweets that sexualized Eilish’s appearance.
Previously, Eilish revealed her reasoning for always donning her signature baggy clothes during her Clavin Klein campaign.
“I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean that’s why I wear big baggy clothes,” she said. “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath.”
“Nobody can be like ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she’s got a flat ass, she’s got a fat ass,’” she continued. “No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”
You can see the video of her explaining her style below.
So when people began objectifying Eilish after photos surfaced of her in a fitted tank top, fans immediately came to her defense.

Billie Eilish dresses how she dresses so that nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. She doesn’t want people to judge her body, she doesn’t want to be sexualized.

Billie Eilish is 17 years old, legally an underage. Legally, you can get charged for sexualising a teenager. Ethically, she doesn’t owe you showing her body or not “hiding” it, thinking that is utterly materialstic, misogynistic, and disgusting. https://t.co/FTKkCAmogV
