Amber Riley takes down online body shamers
The former Glee star posted the lengthy rant on Instagram on Friday (20May16), just hours after she underwent dental surgery. She shared a photo of her jaw in a bandage after the gruelling operation, which featured the caption, "I'm can't feel my face. I'm still sexy tho (sic). And high. Very very high."
Later that day, Amber shared an emotional video with her fans on the social media site, and captioned the clip, "I got some things I need to get off my chest, and my thighs, and my stomach."
"You know, there are just some things that my sober mind keeps me from sharing. That ends tonight," the actress said in the video. "I've got some things I need to get off my chest.
"Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I'm confident and I'm fly and I'm sexy? Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy a** offend? Why?! Why?!"
Telling her fans that she felt totally confident with her plus-size figure, the 30-year-old further revealed that no matter what she was called by online trolls, she was in love with her curves.
"Let my big a** live. I let you all live. I love all colours, shapes and sizes," she exclaimed. "So, just so you know, when you come on here and you call me fat, it's not an insult dummy. My a** is fat and the fellas love it and so do I."
Her former Glee co-star Naya Rivera Dorsey shared the video on Twitter, and wrote, "Get it giiiirrrrlll (sic)."
