'No, I'm not pregnant, just not on a diet' - Ashley Tisdale responds to body shamers over weight gain
Former child star Ashley Tisdale has hit out at body shamers asking if she was pregnant due to weight gain.
The High School Musical actress (31) was one of the hundreds of celebrities at Elton John's annual Oscars viewing party and was asked if she was pregnant due to her new shape, which largely consisted of her stomach not being pancake flat.
As is par for the course for actress or celebrities of any kind who have gained any weight, there was plenty of social media criticism on her appearance, but she had enough when one Twitter user asked was she okay and wondered if she was pregnant.
Ashley hit back by saying, "The pressure to being perfect is a struggle. No im [sic] not pregnant,I'm just happy and haven't been strict on my diet but thanks for the reminder.
"Do what they think you can't," she added.
She has since been inundated with support since speaking out.

@ashleytisdale people are idiots. If I was a celeb they would think I was pregnant with Beyonce's twins— Jadzia K. Rene (@Jadzia_Rene) February 27, 2017
