Maren Morris is clapping back at a body-shaming troll on Instagram.
Last week, the 28-year-old country star, who also appears on the pop hit “The Middle” from Zedd and Grey, shared a photo in which she’s wearing a black bodysuit and denim cut-offs. “When you’re trying to achieve a LEWK + your dog’s ass photobombs you,” Morris captioned the pic.
One person didn’t approve of the fashion choice and commented: “Don’t cry foul when you’re asked to perform sex acts by a male…respect yourself and coverup!!”
Morris replied: “Um, I’m married to @ryanhurd and he doesn’t need to ask.”
Hurd also responded. “Maren can handle herself, but I had a whole response to this based on the fact that usually only dudes leave that …on here but you’re a woman! Maybe even a mom,” he wrote. “I would hope no one ever said something like that to you or maybe your poor, poor daughter, who will probably grow up in a house that tells her that her own body is a bad thing.”
Two days later, Morris shared a photo of herself holding a burger and addressed everyone who took issue with her outfit.
“Some turds on my last picture had the cowardly gall to suggest that I deserved creepy sexual advances from men for my clothing, so I ought to cover up, & I thought it was pretty horrifying,” she wrote. “I realize I chose this career and I chose to put a picture on this platform, but choosing to illicit sex acts from wearing a bodysuit? No. That is what’s wrong with it all.
“I refuse to ever, EVER be ashamed of the body God gave me. I’m proud to be Irish, Native American, English… proud of my cellulite and proud of my strong back + arms. I worked my ass off on my body the last few months, and I’m proud to show that work. All day little girls + boys are measuring themselves against societal shame & fake photoshopped bodies on Instagram. So what I guess I’m saying is, I didn’t choose to be a role model for body-shaming, judgmental nobodies; I LOVE being a role model for kids and anyone who’s just trying to figure out how to love themselves every day. Screw the haters and eat your damn cheeseburger.”
THANK YOU, MAREN!!!!
