‘Walking Dead’ Star Slays Body-Shaming Trolls With One Cutthroat Instagram Post

The Walking Dead actress Alanna Masterson is considered a modern-day Wonder Woman to many for rushing straight back to the set right after having a baby, working 17-hour days, and continuing to nurse her baby in the meantime.

Alanna had her daughter, Marlowe, in November of last year, and this little bundle of adorableness is her pride and joy.


But instead of commending this strong mama for balancing her work and parenting life like a pro, Instagram trolls have been slamming the once thinner star for her weight-gain and larger breasts—as though that’s abnormal after BIRTHING A HUMAN.

But no fear—this warrior of a woman is not letting body shamers get the best of her. In response to the hate, she penned the powerful Instagram post below alongside this precious picture of her baby girl.


Since her message was posted two days ago, it has received over 120,000 likes and 13,000 comments. Alanna has mamas everywhere cheering “AMEN” over her ode to post-baby body love:

Become A Contributor

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 [explicit] 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 [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. ❤️✌🏼️
