‘Grow the F*ck Up:’ Walking Dead Star Calls Out Trolls and Body Shamers

shutterstock_385606732Word to the wise: Don’t try to body shame someone who is used to taking down actual zombies/walkers. She’s going to She’s going to fire back at you.

Before Alanna Masterson went back to work to film the most recent season of Walking Dead, she had a baby. Since the show has been back, people have been commenting on her weight. Masterson took to Instagram to call out her body shamers, and let them know that it’s not okay.

“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,” the note begins.

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. 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. Maybe you can’t get it through your thick fucking 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. Also, grow the fuck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I’m sure she knows how “courageous” you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers. 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. ❤️✌🏼

“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.

She described the difficulty of “nursing a baby for a year…in the dead of summer in Georgia,” and said, “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.”

“Also,” she said, “grow the f*ck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully.”

She ended the note saying, “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.”
