Julia Michaels has no time for haters.

The “All Your Exes” singer, 27, hit back at body shamers on Instagram last week, proudly showing off her armpit hair in a pair of sunny selfies with a strongly worded caption.

“People are always going to have something to say about you or your body. They will always try to attack you when you’re feeling the most happy or the most yourself you’ve ever been,” Michaels wrote.

“To that I say go eat a bag of worms. ?Thanks for listening and have a good day :),” she added.

Fans — and fellow musicians including Kesha, Fletcher and Sabrina Carpenter — soon flocked to the comments section to drop supportive messages.

“If the body hair wasn’t supposed to be there it wouldn’t grow ? do whatever makes you feel comfortable!! ?,” one person wrote, while another added, “Your body is your body, no one should ever try to change someone else, just mind your own business! Btw you are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL ??.”

Michaels’ boyfriend JP Saxe, with whom she collaborated on the 2020 hit “If the World Was Ending,” also came through with a sweet comment of his own.

“I have many things to say about your body. 1. perfect 2. sexy 3. perfect 4. damn 5. woah 6. ? 7. holy wow love. 8. come cuddle 9. ? etc etc,” he wrote.

The body-positive “Issues” hitmaker announced she would stop shaving her underarms on Twitter last year, joking, “Social norms can eat an eggplant.”

And she’s stuck with it since, baring her body hair in her “Lie Like This” video and at the 2021 Grammys, to both praise and criticism.

“It’s really wild how many people think they can comment on your body. It’s pretty gross,” she told Page Six Style recently, adding that she can’t believe shaming people over their natural underarm hair is “still a thing.”

“I honestly think it’s super liberating,” she told us at the time. “And I don’t even really show my body off that much, so sometimes it feels like it’s my own little ‘f—k you’ to society.”
