Aubrey O'Day is clapping back.
On Aug. 31, The Daily Mail published a series of photos of a woman the outlet identified as O'Day along with the headline "Aubrey O'Day Looks Unrecognizable as She Emerges for a Stroll With Her Dogs After Promoting Diet App With Filtered Snap on Instagram."
It wasn't long before the report spread online, with some accusing O'Day of editing past social media photos to promote products. However, O'Day refused to stand for any body shaming.
Taking to Twitter on Sept. 1, the 36-year-old singer posted a photo of herself wearing a black swimsuit while holding a piece of paper that featured the date and time, her name and the words "this is degrading" on it.
"It's so sick what ppl will do for click bait!" the Danity Kane star wrote alongside the photo. "And that my lawyer needed this photo to defend me against it.. When is this industry going to stop abusing women's bodies! Sorry my place is a mess, currently remodeling my glam room—I'm sure it'll be written that I'm a hoarder next!"
Soon, her followers also came to her defense.
"The s--t she has to deal with on the regular about her body like.... especially when it's always false information..," a fan tweeted. "I'll never understand the worlds obsession with a woman's body."
O'Day then replied by writing, "Makes me sick."
"I was jamming to Brandy & Monica Verzuz," she continued. "Started my glam room and BOOM my whole night is ruined! Then my attny has me taking photos with date and time to prove them false. Like, I'm tired of this stupid shallow abussive [sic] industry."
She also retweeted several supportive messages from her fans.
"You don't deserve to be going through that, beautiful," one Twitter user wrote.
Added another, "No one deserves to put up with what you had to today. Keep going and you always sparkle."
In a statement to Page Six, her lawyer, Ben Walter, seemingly threatened legal action against the paparazzi. He told the outlet, "The person in the paparazzi photos is not the same person in the picture that Aubrey shared on Instagram, in that the photo has been altered in an unflattering manner. It's clear to see that there are noticeable differences between the two photos," he claimed. "Aubrey has shared an unedited photo to put this issue to bed quickly... Aubrey will not tolerate it, nor will she allow others to manipulate her image, and finds it sad that this is a newsworthy topic given the current climate of the world."
