After a female follower left a less than complimentary comment on a photo Maren Morris posted on IG, her husband Ryan Hurd came to her defense. "I don't usually respond, because Maren can handle herself, but . . . you're a woman . . . maybe even a mom . . .
"I would hope no one ever said something like that to you or maybe to your poor, poor daughter, who will probably grow up in a house that tells her that her own body is a bad thing. Maren isn't naked.
"Leave my wife alone, and go back in the hole you crawled out of."
Maren then added another photo and a comment of her own:
"Some turds had the cowardly gall to suggest that I deserved creepy sexual advances from men for my clothing, so I ought to cover up, and I thought it was pretty horrifying . . .
"I refuse to ever, EVER be ashamed of the body God gave me . . . I LOVE being a role model for kids and anyone who's just trying to figure out how to love themselves every day. Screw the haters, and eat your damn cheeseburger. #StrongNotSkinny."
I gotta say, I agree with Maren and Ryan. Here are the photos. What do you think?
Some turds on my last picture had the cowardly gall to suggest that I deserved creepy sexual advances from men for my clothing, so I ought to cover up, & I thought it was pretty horrifying. I realize I chose this career and I chose to put a picture on this platform, but choosing to illicit sex acts from wearing a bodysuit? No. That is what’s wrong with it all. I refuse to ever, EVER be ashamed of the body God gave me. I’m proud to be Irish, Native American, English... proud of my cellulite and proud of my strong back + arms. I worked my ass off on my body the last few months, and I’m proud to show that work. All day little girls + boys are measuring themselves against societal shame & fake photoshopped bodies on Instagram. So what I guess I’m saying is, I didn’t choose to be a role model for body-shaming, judgmental nobodies; I LOVE being a role model for kids and anyone who’s just trying to figure out how to love themselves every day. Screw the haters and eat your damn cheeseburger. 🍔 #StrongNotSkinny
