andy Moore is pretty much the queen of television and all our hearts these days. As the star of This Is Us, she makes us laugh, cry, and cry some more in every episode.
Recently, Moore went on The Tonight Show to promote This Is Us and posted a picture to Instagram to let fans know she was there. The comment section of her post was promptly invaded by body-shaming trolls because the world is on fire and we can't just be nice to each other.
Thank goodness Mandy Moore is a strong woman who wasn't going to take any crap. Her response to the haters is perfect.
Mandy Moore posted this picture of herself backstage at The Tonight Show.
She was excited to hang with Jimmy Fallon and her caption let her fans know what time the show would be on.
Innocent enough, right? Nothing about this post (or most likely any of Mandy Moore’s posts) invites controversy or trolls.
But it doesn't take much for haters to rear their ugly heads. Numerous people began body-shaming the actress for looking "so skinny."
They harangued her to eat biscuits and burgers. They claimed that the picture was photoshopped. They warned her not to lose any more weight.
As if her body was any of their business.
Luckily, Mandy Moore is a warrior goddess among women who doesn't have time for trolls, and she edited her caption to add this savage PS:
“I am 5’10” and a size 6,” she wrote. “I have NEVER photoshopped pictures. That’s not what I’m about. If you’re going to be rude about people’s bodies, go elsewhere.”
She effectively “boy bye”-ed the body shamers, and it’s so perfect.
Needless to say, fans loved the clap back and rushed to the comment section to express their support for the actress.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Moore talked about the incident: “I’m not some teeny tiny person and I don’t pride myself. Look, I like to take care of myself and I try to eat healthy and I work out, but I’m a tall girl with a real body.”
Moore has always been unapologetic and confident about her body — as she should be. She wasn't going to let body shamers bring her down.
As for why she responded to her critics? “I don’t know, I’ve never been accused of [photoshopping pictures] before,” she told Cosmopolitan. “I felt like I had to jump in and say something because we don’t need to be talking about people’s bodies. Not on my Instagram, at least.”
You tell ’em, Mandy!
