Busy Philipps Shut Down a Mom-Shamer With This Spot-On Response
Mom of two Busy Philipps is not here for men body-shaming her (or anyone) on Instagram.
The actor recently shared a gym selfie on Instagram for #TheAwesomeChallenge, a program that donates clothes to kids in need every time the hashtag is used.
But of course, some internet troll had to take a post about charity and make it about being mean-spirited. Welcome to the web in 2018.
The commenter told Philipps she looked bad in the photo, pointing out her seemingly nonexistent "rolls."
Don't worry. She had the perfect response.
Normally, I would say kill 'em with kindness, but sometimes people need to be called out. Philipps has a long history of supporting body positivity, especially among new mothers. Even though her daughters, Cricket and Birdie, are now 5 and 10 years old respectively, Philipps is constantly posting throwback photos of herself during her pregnancy as well as postpartum — to show support for bodies of all shapes and sizes.
And she does it in hilariously relatable ways. I mean, a few weeks ago, Philipps shared a photo of herself eating a sandwich during labor.
So it's safe to say the recent killer clapback is totally on brand for this mom, who's never afraid of keeping it real. Commenters beware.
