There are a lot of disgusting ways people body-shame others. Luckily, people like Elizabeth Jean “Busy” Philipps constantly remind us that we have to stand up for ourselves and ot allow the trolls to get under our skin. The savage actress has just schooled a man who mocked her post-workout selfie on Instagram in a way that he will probably never forget.
A lecture on grammar? Check. A lesson on common human decency? Check. A sassy poetic insult? Ohhh, you bet.
“You know how when you’re a woman, sometimes people feel like they should be able to comment about your body all the time or make laws about your body? Well when you’re an actress, or any female in the public eye, everyone feels that they can comment on your body all the f—— time,” Philipps said. “The amount of people in my long 20-year career in this industry who’ve come up to me in grocery stores and Bed Bath and Beyonds to talk with people about my weight … I think it’s a good thing to err on the side of ‘Let’s not talk to people about their bodies unless they bring it up first and they want to talk about their bodies.’”
