The film ends with her saying: "Is my value based only on your perception or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?".

Singer Billie Eilish posted a powerful short film on social media yesterday addressing body shaming online.

She spent her teenage years in the limelight alongside her brother and frequent collaborator, singer-songwriter and music producer Finneas O'Connell. In the video-produced and written via her, she takes at the body-shamers and haters that occur always, judgments about your physique, your number of clothes and in addition their reviews.
