Vanessa Hudgens isn't here for any body-shaming this summer.

The Princess Switch actress took to the Instagram comments of a recent post featuring Kendall Jenner to remind people that everyone is free to enjoy the beach in the sun, no matter what their size.

Complex recently posted a series of pictures of a scantily clad Kendall by the sea and captioned the images: "summer bod".

32-year-old Vanessa took the opportunity to promote a bit of body positivity and call out the toxic ways we discuss our bodies.

"*a* summer bod," she corrected the publication.

"Cause all bodies in the summer are summer bods. Just sayin".

Complex shared the image of the reality TV star with their 8.9 million followers.

The High School Musical actress finished her point with a winky face emoji.

The star's call out has so far been well-received by Instagram users, with the comment generating over 31,000 likes so far and over 600 replies to her, mainly praising her for calling out problematic language.

Although tagged in the picture, Keeping Up with Kardashians star Kendall has not yet liked or endorsed the post from Complex.

Vanessa has previously spoken about her insecurities and learning to love her body.

In a 2016 interview with PeopleStyle, the actress admitted she sometimes feels self-conscious about her stomach area, which she referred to as her “pooch", but ultimately prefers to be at peace with her body.

The actress took issue with the publication's choice of caption.

“I don’t think we give our bodies enough gratitude for simply just doing what it does, without us telling it to do it,” the 32-year-old explained, on why she loves embracing her figure.

She added: “Just the fact that it can digest food for you and keep food down and fight off bacteria. Realising that has helped me love my body a little more.”

Kendall herself has also opened up in the past about her relationship with her appearance.
