Kristin Cavallari Responds to Homophobic Fat-Shaming Comments With, er, a Homophobic Fat-Shaming Comment
Kristin Cavallari may be slaying a fit post-baby bod, but someone might want to fill her in on the fact that body shaming can actually make you sick, because The Hills alum apparently hasn’t gotten the info. After trolls went after her hubby, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Kristin responded to the homophobic fat-shaming comments with, well, er, a homophobic fat-shaming comment.
Posting a loving pic to Instagram showing the pair enjoying a surprise birthday trip to Mexico, Kristin posted the grateful message, “I had the best birthday of my life and it was all thanks to this guy. Not only did he plan a huge surprise party, he planned a ‘surprise’ trip to Mexico with some of my closest friends, too. Thanks, babe….you will probably never see this 😜”
While fans flooded the comments with adoring sentiments, a few trolls decided to take the opportunity to totally shame Jay with offensive thoughts like, “WTF did he eat himself” and “Who’s the lesbian on the left?”
Skipping the opportunity to remind fans that it’s wrong to leave homophobic fat-shaming comments in any circumstance, Kristin instead jumped on board.
Posting a second pic of her bae, she included the caption, “… since Jay looked like a 300lb lesbian in my last post, I felt I should do him justice by posting him looking hot AF in this one 😍…”
Oh. Um, no. For so many reasons. First, how about folks just leave his appearance alone and leave the body-shaming behind? Second, using weight or sexual identity as an insult is wrong. Third, SMH.
