“You did not deserve to be shamed by this monster,” Kesha wrote. “Your body is no one else’s business. Donald Trump said that your body or weight was an issue (which makes me so sad and just sick).” (RELATED: Kesha Explains Why She’s Dropping Her Case Against Dr. Luke)

“But, I find the real problem here being his bloated, arrogant ego and offensive, racist, misogynist verbal diarrhea,” she added. “He is a bully. Words mean something, and can be extremely hurtful and dangerous.”

“They stay deep inside you and can affect your emotional and mental health,” she continued. I know this from personal experience. They are hard, and sometimes impossible, to ever forget.”

“Please don’t let him get to you any longer, instead realize that you are a strong woman and a beautiful role model for standing up and telling the truth, even if it hurts to remember it. Much love, and mad respect.”
