Amanda Seyfried got into some hot water on social media this week.
The Mean Girls starring was accused of has become a entail daughter IRL after posting specific comments about an Instagram influencer many felt that it was “thin-shaming.”
It all started when IG model/ blogger Arielle Charnas posted 😛 TAGEND
” Proud of my figure after two kids .”
Along with this pic 😛 TAGEND
Several commenters didn’t think Arielle, who likewise leads the clothing brand Something Navy , was transporting the privilege word to moms.
One of those was Amanda’s pal Sophie Flack , who wrote 😛 TAGEND
” Thank you @ariellecharnas for recognise your advantage/ multiple caregivers who constructed your excess exercisings possible oh wait”
To which Arielle answered 😛 TAGEND
” Is there a number of problems ?”
Sophie, who has two children with her husband, The Good Wife sun Josh Charles , went into even more detail in her response.
She shot back 😛 TAGEND
” I detest to dump on you but since you asked … 1) Totally fine that you’re privileged and thin, good for you( I am too-ish !). Got no problem with either of those things. BUT if you don’t recognise how your fortune obliged your workouts/ mas possible you’re just perpetuating the patriarchal( completely unrealistic) notion that moms should “bounce back” after childbirth, an impossibility for anyone who can’t afford ample childcare( which is almost everyone in this country ).
She then took it further, saying 😛 TAGEND
‘ 2) Honeychild, you are glorifying an unhealthy torso image in a society that already fetishizes the adolescent female kind. Young girlfriends don’t need any more images of emaciated girls, thank you very much . strong >”
Well, that was pretty darn direct.
The comment got Sophie blocked by Arielle — so she information technology shared on her own page.
Here’s where Amanda got involved because she Likewise reposted the comment, saying 😛 TAGEND
” My very smart friend wrote this on a semi-influencer’s feed and she blocked both of us. If we’re ready to get paid for flaunting our lifestyle( and inspiring some in the meantime ), we have to be open to the discussions encircling what we are promoting .”
Charnas, post blocking, writes to her adherents 😛 TAGEND
” Why am I being bullied for posting myself in a bathing suit? I should be punished because I’m thin and worked hard to be fit after giving birth to two girls? I’m not responsible for constitute people feel better about themselves .”
She continued 😛 TAGEND
” I am health and proud of who I am and the body I have. If you are going to attack me for me being me on my own page then “youre going to be” blocked, I don’t have time for that .”
Arielle didn’t name which” random females” were attacking her — but we definitely visualized mentions by more than only these two.
She finished 😛 TAGEND
” So sad that women who are so unhappy just feel the need to continuously put other women down when all they do is preach about female support. It’s BS and I’m sick of it .”
Amanda actually seems to be take the review to heart.
She removed her own repost and instead posted a quote by poet Robert Frost 😛 TAGEND
” Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence .”
She then wrote 😛 TAGEND
” To all who feel bullied or thin-shamed during our recent social media discussion 😛 TAGEND
If you know me or are familiar with any of my ideas or postures you’ll recognize that it isn’t in my attribute to tear down anyone for “being who they are”. Each of us has the ability and the freedom to say and do as we pick. Nonetheless, as I’m acutely aware, there’s a price tag for the working group on people who find themselves with a pulpit to stand on. You have to be aware of the word you’re sending and be able to back it up when faced with criticism( not just praise ). Hold yourselves accountable instead of using the terms above .”
However, Amanda made clear while this was an apology for calling person out, this wasn’t a backtrack on her the opinion of the overall ideas involved.
” The only thing I’d can be taken is exactly how I started this debate. I desperately wish it hadn’t targeted( or explosion) one person( the authorities have MANY who engage in this questionable messaging) and instead started a cleanser, general speech. No one needs to tear anyone apart. And I regret that it’s present right now. To the dame in question: I’m sorry for the rightfully negative feels you’ve abode because of this.
Aside from the messy detour? The bigger, important letter seems to filtering through and facilitating a lot of women feel substantiated. And that’s the name of the game .”
What a grown-up channel to handle that!
Amanda is listening and entirely willing to admit when she went too far. That’s fantastic.
However … there may be a bit of a twist to this story. Or should we say a distortion ?
See, we couldn’t help but notice as we were staring at Arielle’s pic something didn’t look quite right. Then we figured it out — it’s the dresser on the left…
How about … now?
Are we insuring things, or does that dresser seem to warp toward Arielle? It even seems curvy!
Is it possible this” adjust mom” who’s supposedly proud of her body is using photoshop( or a special mirror) to enhance it for the’ gram ??
If so, that definitely is NOT COOL. People who apply photo magic for that extra bit truly are presenting new mommies an impossible standard to compare themselves to.
We can’t say for certain, but if it is true, Amanda isn’t the only one who owes an apology…
