AWARE Singapore, a leading gender equality advocacy group, has defended Stefanie Sun's choice of showing up at a local McDonald's outlet dressed in T-shirt, shorts and slippers.
The photo recently became a talking point after going viral.
A newspaper report even slammed the star for showing up in public without dressing glamorously.
AWARE, however, made a facebook post to support the singer, and praised her choice of dressing normaly for an everyday activity.
The group also slammed the news report for calling Stefanie's choice of dressing poor.
In the post, AWARE said:
"A vile article shaming Stefanie Sun for existing in public space without dressing to please the columnist and assorted busybodies.
"Good on Sun for sticking it to the haters. 'Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female".'
