Alicia Silverstone Reacts To 'Frustrated' TikToker Revisiting Her Batman & Robin Weight Backlash

Alicia Silverstone arrived on TikTok over the summer, and since then she's been posting a ton of nostalgic content, mostly directed at her famed role as Cher Horowitz in Clueless. The social media platform also allows fans to connect with the actress, and most recently one longtime fan of hers got real about how the media needs to go on an apology tour for the way they treated a teenage Silverstone when she starred in Batman & Robin.

Alicia Silverstone Shares TikTok Video About Being Body-Shamed As Batgirl In Batman & Robin

One TikTok user is looking for some justice for Batman and Robin star Alicia Silverstone. @foreversymone posted her video wondering what was going on with the media back near the DC Comics movie release. A ton of pieces fixated on Silverstone's weight and one even name-dropped Babe the Pig. So, when the actress caught wind of the video, she did a duet with her fan. The Clueless star has addressed that moment in her life numerous times in the past. Once with The Guardian back in 2020 and even before that. It looks a bit bad in retrospect to have dialed up all this attention and younger fans had no idea this even happened. (Also worth noting is the TikTokker's diffusion of any other debates surrounding Batman and Robin before they even get off the ground.) In the video, she lays out some of the strangeness at play.
