Glee's Amber Riley shared a message very close to her heart on Saturday, and it's something we all need to hear.
Taking to Instagram, Riley posted a video of herself in which she relayed an important message for all her haters. Looking into the camera, Riley said that there were "some things that her sober mind keeps her from sharing," but that was all about to change.
"Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I'm confident and I'm fly and I'm sexy?" Riley asked. "Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy ass offend? Why? Why?!"
Riley then tells critics that they need to let her live instead of discriminating against her because she loves her body just the way it is. But perhaps the most powerful line of her entire video is toward the end, when she states, "When you come on here and call me fat, it's not an insult, dummy." And she delivered her message with the perfect amount of sass and confidence.
Riley captioned the post, "I got some things I need to get off my chest, and my thighs, and my stomach" — and fans have applauded her honesty.
"Wish I was as confident as you. Btw, don't listen to them, you're beautiful inside and out," bechloe_saga commented.
"PREACH!!! I love you," wrote metseyyy.
"this made me so confident. this made my day," jacquelynskye wrote.
And diamondessencex3 agreed, writing, "Yes Bae!!! and believe me we love you so continue to ignore these idiots, you are absolutely gorgeous and you sing like an angel."
Let's hope that Riley's empowering words not only make her haters back off but also serve as inspiration to others and a reminder that it's OK to love your body, no matter what size, shape or color it is.
