Some Idiot Tries Body-Shaming Busy Philipps, Gets A Well Deserved Lesson

There are a lot of disgusting ways people body-shame others. Luckily, people like Elizabeth Jean “Busy” Philipps constantly remind us that we have to stand up for ourselves and ot allow the trolls to get under our skin. The savage actress has just schooled a man who mocked her post-workout selfie on Instagram in a way that he will probably never forget.

A lecture on grammar? Check. A lesson on common human decency? Check. A sassy poetic insult? Ohhh, you bet.

“You know how when you’re a woman, sometimes people feel like they should be able to comment about your body all the time or make laws about your body? Well when you’re an actress, or any female in the public eye, everyone feels that they can comment on your body all the f—— time,” Philipps said. “The amount of people in my long 20-year career in this industry who’ve come up to me in grocery stores and Bed Bath and Beyonds to talk with people about my weight … I think it’s a good thing to err on the side of ‘Let’s not talk to people about their bodies unless they bring it up first and they want to talk about their bodies.'”

More info: Instagram

Busy Philipps is the sass queen, best known for her roles on TV series Freaks and Geeks and Dawson’s Creek

Recently, she posted this post-workout pic, rocking a sports bra and leggings

And one Instagram troll decided to leave a nasty comment

Immediately, the 39-year-old actress taught him a lesson he will never forget

People applauded her shameless comeback

Who cares, seriously? Some ideas posting meaningsless stuff as a reply to a post that has no value but for being a selfie made by someone known from TV. Why not stick to 78+ Animal Snapchats and the like rather than posting these "people were infuriated" stuff? People todays are infuriated for everything but for those things that globally really go wrong, so I'd rather not read about this here.

I clicked on the article thinking I was going to read a sassy, smart come-back that really put the body-shamer in his place. Not an over-used put down about one of the most common errors in texts. Why did we click on the article people are asking? Good grief! Sometimes you click on an article and are disappointed. The problem is the over-promising heading and the non-story that follows. Of course people are going to be irritated and say so.

How did this become a whole article? Completely ignoring him would’ve taught him a lesson. Replying with an angry message simply means he got to you and it bothered you.

BP clearly titles what each of it's posts are about. If you know you don't like this kind of post, don't click on it. There are many other choices. I can look right at the title of a post and know right away that it's not for me, so I don't click it. Try this and be less annoyed.

What's the big deal? She responded like anyone else did and she gets famous?? I know the proper grammar as well and its not a big deal. She could have handled it even better by.... Ignoring the douche! Who cares! People will shame your ass all the time cause they just want to pick on someone or they aren't happy about themselves. Just ignore the losers and pathetic, ignorant dumbasses and you'll be fine.

All these 'lessons' are so boring. Not that I think its not important, but huh, this person doesn‘t even answer her... mostly I feel lessons should mean something else than „there are persons who answer trolls and feel like they changed him 100% even if they never answer or continue trolling“...

Are we sure he wasn't just joking I mean look at those emojis. Kinda obvious he's drooling over her. I know sarcasm can be hard to understand through text but need to stop getting triggered by everything and learn how to ignore shitheads. If it's a joke it's a stupid one yes, but I bet now that that guy will have his life ruined by triggered feminists, who just won't leave him alone. When did the internet turn into this shitstorm?

Also why does this article even exist? So that more angry feminists can know about the cis white male body shamer? Give a f-ing brake BP. Why would you post this?

In a way, Busy is the troll in this situation. She has garnered far more attention for her response to the guy then she did for her Instagram pictures in the first place. That is not an accident. "Body shaming" trolls are very common and instagrammers know how to use them to their advantage.

Oh, please, people need to chill out, especially with this "clapback" claptrap. Let's face it, people post the selfies inviting people to tell them how beautiful the poster is, how awesome, how cool, etc. and so on. They're also expecting that some will "shame" them and stuff, which further gives them the opportunity to "clapback" and look more awesome. Which then ends up in places like BP, Yahoo news, and so forth, further giving them personal validation. I'd be more impressed if these celebs took selfies of themselves using their celebrity status to help other people. Let the down votes begin.

WTF is wrong with people? Where do they get off thinking they can criticize strangers on looks? For those posters who defend trolls, get a clue. Internet anonymity is not an excuse to be a rude, condescending person. Rule of thumb - keep your mouth shut unless you have the gall to say it IN PERSON to their face. Pathetic. And yes, I would preach that to a lot of faces.

This is a ridiculous article. But since I read it anyway... She has no "rolls". She then tells him how to spell "your" while misspelling "possessive". yay.

Was that it? Someone wrote a short comment and she feels the need to reply and does so in a really insulting way? So she is just the same as this loser. Ignore it, that's classier and more embarrassing for the troll. Don't feed them with hypocrisy.

Okay, she looks pretty good to me but when you stick your body out in public you're fair game. Publicly fishing for compliments and publicity isn't always an ego booster.

White privilege body shaming and the only one ever to have a lame comeback. What the guy said is stupid. You publishing this is worse. Because black women are coheren constantly body shamed in the modeling world for looking too black. See where I'm getting at with this. This is like talking about Trans shaming Jenner, the most uninspiring trans women ever known, and disregarding the ytans women during Paris is burning.
