Ariana Grande opened up in a recent TikTok video and begged fans to “be gentler and less comfortable commenting on people’s bodies, no matter what.”

Bella Hadid re-shared the singer’s video on Instagram alongside a sweet and supportive message echoing Grande’s statement.

“you never know what someone is dealing with mentally or physically,” she began her caption. “Disease or depression. Grief or heartache. You just don’t, and you will never know until you walk in a day in their shoes. Instead of unsolicited advice or opinions, judgement or aggression, just try to offer a helping hand and be kind.”

The Wicked star noted in her video that there is a way to compliment people that is not appearance based, and we should refrain from commenting on bodies in general, because you never know what someone is going through.

“There is always a reason for the way people look/feel , so try to be soft , especially when you don’t know someone or what they’ve been through,” the 26-year-old continued, adding that social media is just the best snippets of someone’s life. “Instagram is not real and we need to look deeper and consciously remind ourselves that each of us are just human beings trying our best. So next time someone wants to write a nasty article to make fun, or a mean comment to get some likes , just remember that. If someone wants to talk badly about another person , remove yourself from the conversation. It’s so much cooler to be kind.”

“Love you guys. And love you Ari,” the model of the year finished. “This is so important , I am very proud of you. It will help so many people. Thank you.”

“i love you and your big heart !!!!!!!” The 29-year-old “Thank U, Next” singer replied in the comments of the video.
