More Stars Who Battled Body Criticism

Kesha pulled a Tyra Banks on Sunday night, giving us deja vu to the talk show host's infamous 2007 takedown of her body shaming critics.

In a since-deleted Instagram video, Kesha gave her haters the finger and mooned the camera. "I would like to show u what my beautiful body actually looks like and invite anyone out there who doesn't like it to kiss my fat ass bye," she captioned the clip.

In case you somehow forgot, Tyra made talk show history 10 years ago after photos of her in a swimsuit went viral online. The pics prompted headlines like "Thigh-ra Banks" and "America's Next Top Waddle" about her weight and Tyra, well, she was none too pleased.

Walking out on the February 1, 2007 episode of the show in the same bathing suit from the photos, Banks addressed her haters with a fiery speech.

"If I had lower self esteem, I would probably be starving myself right now. But, that's exactly what is happening to other women all over this country," she said. "So, I have something to say to all of you that have something nasty to say about me or other women that are built like me, women that sometimes or all the time look like this, women whose names you know, women whose names you don't, women who've been picked on, women whose husbands put them down, women at work or girls in school -- I have one thing to say to you: kiss my fat ass."

While accepting the Daytime Emmy in 2008 for Outstanding Talk Show, she had another passionate message to those who are told they're "not good enough." "I want you to tell them to kiss your dimply, flat, juicy bootylicious, skinny, jiggly, saggy fat ass!"
