Last season, The Walking Dead employed the age-old trick of “sitting in a chair like a chill high school teacher” to hide Alanna Masterson’s pregnancy. This season, after giving birth to a daughter last November, the actress has been more active, even if she’s only appeared in one episode. In Sunday’s Tara-centric hour, “Swear,” she’s running all over the place, from zombies and humans alike (while wearing killer shades, to boot). But because people are terrible, Masterson said that “Instagram trolls” and “body shamers” are commenting on her weight, and she has an important message for them.
“Grow the f*ck up.”
Masterson wrote the following on Instagram:
Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it’s ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don’t have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance. I hope they learn that it isn’t ok to make fun of people or call people names. I hope one day YOU learn what it takes to be a parent. A kind, selfless parent. A working parent. A parent that puts themselves in someone else’s shoes. Maybe you can’t get it through your thick f*cking skull, but nursing a baby for a year (and pumping in a van between takes, in the dead of summer in Georgia) is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling. So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being “too large” or how “fat” I’ve become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life. I wouldn’t have changed it for a second. I would’ve gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow. Also, grow the f*ck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I’m sure she knows how “courageous” you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers. P.s. I would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts. P.s.s. Be kind to each other. We need it now more than ever. (Via)
It’s not the first time she’s used social media to quiet body shamers.
