"The Walking Dead" Star Alanna Masterson Speaks Out Against Body Shamers
The actress shared a strong, powerful message on Instagram.
Zombies are nothing for this Walking Dead star and neither are Internet trolls. TWD actress, Alanna Masterson pops off on body shamers who judged her post-baby body on Instagram and we are so proud of her.
On Tuesday, Masterson took to social media to tell off any and all haters who had the nerve to say anything about her body after she had her daughter. The 28-year-old actress’s character, Tara, was one of the main focal points of this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, and after people made rude comments about her weight and appearance following the episode, she had enough.
“Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it’s ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don’t have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance. I hope they learn that it isn’t ok to make fun of people or call people names,” Masterson started her Instagram rant, which was posted alongside a photo of her adorable daughter.
“I hope one day YOU learn what it takes to be a parent. A kind, selfless parent. A working parent. A parent that puts themselves in someone else’s shoes,” she continued. “Maybe you can’t get it through your thick f**king skull, but nursing a baby for a year (and pumping in a van between takes, in the dead of summer in Georgia) is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling.”
“So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being ‘too large’ or how ‘fat’ I’ve become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life. I wouldn’t have changed it for a second. I would’ve gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow,” Masterson wrote.
“P.s. I would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts. P.s.s. Be kind to each other. We need it now more than ever,” Masterson concluded.
Wow, you go girl! We are so proud of Masterson and love her even more after this strong, powerful message. Body shamming is NOT okay and Masterson slayed it with this speech.
