Chrissy Metz Claps Back at Body Shamers for Criticizing Her Latex Dress at the MTV Awards
"I wear what I want, when I want."
Chrissy Metz has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to body shamers. The This Is Us star stepped out on the red carpet this Sunday for the MTV Movie and TV Awards making heads turn with her bold and beautiful maroon, latex midi dress.
Metz looked nothing short of incredible, but it was heartbreaking to learn that some Twitter users decided to throw some harsh criticism her way.
One troll thought it was appropriate to refer to Metz as a "jug of Kool-Aid" (insert eye-roll here) while another stated that her dress made her look like a "red rubber ball."
Thankfully, Metz wasn't here for any of it and decided to take to Twitter on her own to show just how unfazed she was by the negative banter: "For the record, I wear what I want, when I want," she said. "News flash it's MY body. #thankstho" (Take that, body shaming trolls.)
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Metz has had to deal with weight-related criticism. She's previously opened up about what it's really like to be a plus-size actress and how being rejected in Hollywood for over a decade because of her weight caused her to fall into a deep depression.
Metz has also been candid about her intentions for losing weight and we could all learn a thing or two from her amazing approach to weight loss. "It doesn't matter where you come from, what your scale currently says or what society has taught you to believe," she recently wrote on Instagram. "You are entitled to greatness. No matter what." Now that's something we can all get behind.
