Earlier this week, however, one British radio host decided to try to rain on Tilly’s dance parade by body-shaming her.

67-year-old radio presenter Steve Allen insulted the teen’s dance skills before calling her chubby, saying: “Well, she can’t blimming well dance, I’m bored with her already. She’s a chubby little thing, isn’t she? Have you noticed? Probably her dad’s [Gordon] cooking, I should imagine.”

Gross, right? Well, Tilly handled it in a much more mature, and composed way than I would have at her age.

 “I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far,” she wrote.

“Steve, please feel free to voice your opinions, however, I draw the line at commenting on my appearance.”

She continued: “This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that and I’m learning to accept myself. But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19.”

“I’m so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in, and I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with repercussions, and I’ve been aware of this from a young age.”

“It made me feel very proud that she stood up and said, ‘I’m not taking this,’” Gordon said on Instagram Live, as per Joe.

“She is 19 years of age for goodness’ sake – busting her [explective] off and attending university by Zoom and learning the most extraordinary moves with Nikita.”

“‘ I think it was a breath of fresh air that level of standing up and saying, ‘We’re not going to tolerate that.'”

Way to go, Tilly!
