In a new interview airing on Apple TV’s “Dear…”, Selena Gomez opens up about how deeply the body shaming comments on social media hurt her. She admitted last year that she hadn’t been on social media in over 4 years and instead let her team run her accounts.

Now she is speaking out because “nobody should feel less than.”
