Karrueche Tran, who is famously gorgeous (she’s a model, you guys), got body-shamed after posting a pair of jaw-dropping bikini selfies.
We’ve seen a lot of body-shaming over the years, but this might be the most ridiculous example that we’ve ever seen.
If you’re trying to hurt the feelings of a knockout like Karrueche, we guess that you really have to reach to find something to nitpick … but looking at these photos and claiming that she “has no ass” is absurd.
Obviously, Karrueche is moving past a dark chapter in her life.
She was in a relationship with that infamous monster, Chris Brown.
You know, the one who should have been imprisoned for life (at least) back in 2009 for beating up Rihanna but is nonetheless free and clear to live his life and continue his career.
Because our society is as forgiving as our legal system is inept.
Well, Chris Brown is accused of beating Karrueche, too.
While this is no surprise to us, let’s be clear that it’s not Karrueche’s fault.
Abuse is literally always the fault of the abuser.
These days, though, Karrueche has a restraining order against Chris Brown and she’s just trying to live her life.
Which makes this story even sadder.
Karrueche Tran shared this gorgeous mirror selfie, of herself in a bikini.
Any decent person would have been appreciative or even grateful.
Many of her fans and followers were.
But a very vocal minority of trolls descended upon her Instagram comments to body-shame her.
Their baseless claim was that she “has no ass.’
Look at her mirror belfie, where her ass is clearly right there.
We don’t claim to be butt experts (assperts?) but … Karrueche’s butt actually looks perfect.
Not only does she look picture-perfect, she seems to exactly fit a figure that’s considered conventionally attractive.
Karrueche sadly saw the comments left by these hateful beasts and commented on it on Twitter.
“Y’all shame natural bodies but praise fake ones.”
That’s sad but true.
“If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
That adage may be old as all get-out, but when it comes to Instagram comments, it’s right.
“Keep your negative vibes to yourself. If you don’t like what you see then keep it pushing.”
That just means, you know, move on.
“Point is, constant judgment makes it hard for people to love and accept themselves and that’s wrong.”
She’s absolutely right.
Honestly, a lot of celebrities get all sorts of wildly inappropriate comments.
Some from people who don’t imagine that the celebrity will ever see them.
Others from people who desperately want attention (even if it’s negative), or to feel powerful in the knowledge that perhaps they ruined a famous person’s day.
And then there’s “positive” replies, often on Twitter.
You can reply to a thirst trap with “oh my” or “wow!” or whatever.
Please don’t reply with something crude, though. That’s sexual harassment, and no better than body-shaming.
Can we all just … be better?
