Mandy Moore's Response To Body Shamers Was So, So Perfect
Mandy Moore is one of TV's favorite people right now. You can't simply be the mom on This Is Us without the whole country falling in love with you and wanting you to be their mom as well. But a very not cool thing happened to Moore on Instagram recently. She recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and posted an Instagram slideshow of her time on the late-night show. Some people on Instagram felt the need to comment on her body, and Mandy Moore's response to body-shamers was perfect.
People in the comments section were saying things like, "Don't lose anymore weight," "You don't even look like Mandy Moore anymore #stopbeingplastic #usedtobehot," "You need to eat a biscuit. Or ten," and "Photoshop much?" These trolls were all criticizing Moore's body, saying she's too thin and must be photoshopping her pictures in order to look that way. Moore's original caption on her Instagram from Oct. 11 said,
But after receiving the unwarranted comments on her body, she added more to her caption, saying,
Her response was simple and true. There's no space for body-shaming any kind of body type. Ever. Stop doing it. It doesn't matter what kind of body type a person has — your opinion on it is not welcome because it's not on you to police women's bodies. They can do whatever they want with them, dress in whatever fashion they choose, and no one else can tell them otherwise because it's their body. Got it? Great.
Moore opened up about the trolls in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan.
She said she's never photoshopped her pictures and doesn't tolerate people commenting on other people's bodies, especially not on her accounts. She said,
Moore also talked about how playing Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us has changed her relationships with the women in her life, especially her own mother. She said,
So to sum this all up: Stop policing women's bodies. Have a great day!
