Aaron Carter Says He Was Hospitalized After a Female Fan Body-Shamed Him

Singer says he overheard a fan saying that he looked ”like I have a terminal illness & I need to eat five burgers“

Is Aaron Carter the latest victim of the modern scourge of male body-shaming?

The singer took to social media Thursday to tell his followers that he had been hospitalized — after detailing how he had been body-shamed by a female fan.

It doesn’t appear that the hospitalization and the alleged body-shaming are related, but still — rough night for the musician.

“I’m entirely hurt by a so-called fan that I just encountered she wasn’t realizing I was listening, she said I look like I have cancer,” Carter, who played a concert in Syracuse, New York, on Thursday night, wrote on Twitter.

According to Carter, the female fan “was talking behind my back not knowing I’m listening & said I look like I have a terminal illness & I need to eat five burgers.”

Shortly after enduring the torment of being informed that he’s too thin by a female fan, Carter informed his followers that he had been transported to the emergency room of St. Joseph’s hospital.

At first the singer suggested that the hospitalization was the mere result of work-related fatigue.

“Lots of shows lately, had to head up to ER just to get a little check up these shows are crazy lately gotta make sure I stay strong,” Carter wrote.

However, the singer also hinted at more protracted health woes.

“Been in the hospital three times this month, dealing with health issues and broken fingers as well as things I can’t legally discuss,” Carter ominously tweeted.

The singer also noted that, despite the alleged taunt from a female fan, he’s “not ashamed of his body.” And that, contrary to what any of his fans might think, neither he nor anyone else is immortal.

“I’m not ashamed of my body, maybe I’m too skinny, maybe I’m too short but the one thing I know is I love my fans my family my girlfriend and my friends,” Carter wrote. “I’m #NotPerfect you never know what someone is going through. We are not immortal. #embracelove.”
