Walking Dead's Alanna Masterson Destroyed Haters Targeting Breastfeeding Moms

Alanna Masterson is quite like her character Tara Chambler on The Walking Dead — in the sense that she doesn't take crap from anyone. After receiving several harsh messages about her weight from body-shaming trolls, the actress decided it was time to fight back.

 

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 fucking 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 fuck 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.

"Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it's ok to comment on my weight," she says in an Instagram post. "I hope that you don't have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance."

The actress claims that ever since she gave birth to her daughter a year ago, people have made several insulting comments about her body.

"Maybe you can't get it through your thick f—— 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," she writes. "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."

"Also, grow the f— 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."

The young mom made it a point to let her haters know that she returned to work very soon after delivery, and added that she, "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."

Way to speak your mind, Alanna. We love you for it!
