Nicole Kidman body-shamed on Instagram: 'Are you OK?'

The Aussie star was trying to throw her support behind the music industry, but trolls instead targeted her weight.

Nicole Kidman took to Instagram on Thursday to show her support for AusMusic T-Shirt Day but the comments soon turned negative, with people focusing on her weight rather than focusing on celebrating Australian music.

Nicole posed in a series of different shirts to show her support for Aussie musicians ranging from Gretta Ray to King Gizzard & the Wizard Lizard but it was her slender frame that had many fans speculating about weight loss and deeming her as too skinny.

While the organisation Support Act, commented thanking Nicole for her support, and other celebrities like Elle Macpherson commented on her youthful appearance, many people took to Instagram to make crude comments about her weight and urge her to eat a burger.

"Lord someone get that girl a sandwich," one person commented, with someone else adding: "Throw in a couple of cheeseburgers and a milkshake."

"Looks like her head has been placed on a kid's body," someone else said while another chimed in, "She needs food!"

"Nicole are you OK?" someone else asked,

Others jumped in to defend the star.

"She has been like this all her life, long and lean, the photography distorts reality too," one person pointed out.

"I love seeing celebrities just being themselves and having fun," another person said.

"Why do you look 21?" another fan asked.

Aussie musician Gretta Ray, who Nicole represented with one of her t-shirt choices also thanked the star for her support.

"I am honoured," she commented, with a sobbing emoji. "Thank you SO MUCH!"

The funds raised from AusMusic T-Shirt Day go directly to Support Act which acts as the music industry's charity, providing crisis relief, mental health and wellbeing support to musicians, managers, crew, music workers and organisations across all genres of music.
