Singaporean actress Atikah Suhaimie lashed back at body-shaming saying that it is okay as her boyfriend is rich. The actress was subject of ridicule when she posted a short clip of herself ‘cat-walking’ down the stairs via Instagram recently. Some netizens left unsavoury comments on the post, saying that Atikah had gained weight and some also said she looked pregnant. Although the actress is known to be friendly online, usually replying follower comments, she was not having it and she decided to clapback.

“My dear, it’s impossible that I’m pregnant, I’m not even married yet.”

“But I know I’m fat already and I need to lose weight and work out soon,” Atikah replied in her post.

“Yes, it’s true, I’m fat. I’ll work out later, sorry because I’m fat,” she wrote in a reply.

“If I’m fat, I can still lose weight but the same couldn’t be said if you have a wretched heart,” she replied to another comment.

Atikah’s post has gained over 200,000 views since it was posted last Wednesday. Born as Nur Atikah binti Mohd Suhaime on March 15, 1991, Atikah is a Singaporean actress who also acts in Malaysia. She has appeared in several dramas such as Dewi Lasak, Si Kolot Suamiku, and Cinta Tiada Ganti. Her movie portfolio includes Lagenda Budak Hostel, Muka Surat Cinta and Kipidapp!
