Don't Mock Nick Jonas's Height, It's Just Rude. Very Rude.

Nick Jonas is, according to Google, 5'7", which is, according to Wikipedia, two inches shorter than the average male height in the U.S. So maybe he’s a little sensitive, but also he’s got a good face and millions of dollars and is beating diabetes with fitness so, all things considered, he’s doing fine.


But even the finest have their moments of insecurity. Yesterday, a person whose Instagram handle is zak_hanzal posted a picture he took with the pop star, in which he teased Jonas about his height:


In response, Jonas left the first comment: “You need some manners ‘bruh’ I didn’t need to stop to take that picture with you. Just rude. Very rude.”

This is a great point. While being a celebrity isn’t exactly thankless—in fact, you are thanked for merely existing in so many ways on a given day—it really must be annoying to take time out of your busy life to appease someone who wants a picture so they can be thanked for existing alongside you (via “likes”) on Instagram. And then to be lightly roasted in response is just rude! Very rude!

I fully support Nick Jonas’s Stephanie Tanner-ing.

Granted, there are bigger (and taller) things to worry about, but when you’re right you’re right. zak_hanzal has since changed the caption:


So that’s nice, Nick Jonas won this Instagram. (P.S. It’s okay to be short.)

Some Pig. Terrific. Radiant. Humble.

How about not making fun of anyone’s height, celebrity or not?


Someone who’s 5'3" and has trouble reaching stuff at the supermarket.

PS: he’s way young for me to even entertain the thought, but I’d climb Nick Jonas like a tree.
