This is just a quick PSA for all those who still need it to remind everyone on the internet that making negative comments (or any comments at all, for that matter) about women’s bodies is so unacceptable and no one is here for it — especially not one celebrity who doesn’t even deserve it: Mandy Moore.
This Is Us star and genuinely kind person, Moore, recently made an appearance on The Tonight Show to talk to Jimmy Fallon about said super-successful primetime TV series. And since she was proud of that and likes to have fun, she also snapped some photos backstage and posted them to Instagram.
And of course, as if on cue, out came the rude commenters. People were in such disbelief that Moore, who has been drop-dead gorgeous for as long as anyone can remember, could look so good. So, they started accusing her of editing her photo to make her waist look smaller. Soon, the comment section was filled with people accusing Moore of altering her picture as well as sleuths looking for evidence within the photo that she had done so until Moore ended up deleting the post. Who has this much free time, honestly?
Moore handled it like a champ, though. She later posted a whole series of more photos that showed her looking similarly bangin’, and commented, “Love any time I get to hang with the sweetest @jimmyfallon on @fallontonight. And ps: I am 5’10 and a size 6. I have NEVER photoshopped pictures. That’s not what I’m about. If you’re going to be rude about people’s bodies, go elsewhere.”
And that’s how you drop the hammer on body-shaming. All hail Mandy Moore.
