Alanna Masterson: The Walking Dead Star Curses Off Body Shamers!

by at .  Updated at .

If you watch The Walking Dead, you'll recognize Alanna Masterson as the extremely wonderful, incredibly lovable Tara.

But if you don't watch The Walking Dead, well, you'll just recognize Alanna Masterson as a seriously lovely human being.

During the last season of the show, Alanna filmed while she was heavily pregnant with her daughter, Marlowe, and this season was filmed just months after she gave birth.

While that's very adorable, it unfortunately means that a lot of people felt and still feel the need to make remarks about her weight.

The most recent episode of The Walking Dead focused on Alanna's character, so all those weird people that spend their free time on social media, making cruel comments about total strangers? They had a field day.

"How does Tara stay so fat in the zombie apocalypse?" one winner wondered on Twitter.

Another jackass stated that "Tara looks like she's been eating pretty good out on the road."

But before you get upset and outraged and go on a rampage, defending Alanna and her infinite beauty and how her body is no one else's business, know that she went ahead and took care of this one herself.

Over on Instagram, she shared this adorable photo of her daughter, who just celebrated her first birthday:

And she included this truly beautiful message.

"Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and women who think it's ok to comment on my weight," she began, "I hope 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," she wrote. "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 f-cking 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," Alanna wrote. "I would've gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow."

"Also, grow the f-ck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgemental bully. I'm sure she knows how 'courageous' you must be for trolling and hiding behind your iphone and computers."

"P.S.," she added, "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."

It was a really great message, and a lot of people took notice, and they applauded Alanna for standing up for herself.

So much that, afterwards, she got on Twitter to say "Really wasn't expecting the amount of love from my fans after what I posted on Instagram. I love you guys. Seriously."

"If I can make anyone out there feel 10% better about themselves, I've done my job. Don't let anyone put u down. You are unique & I SEE YOU."

Bless this girl. Bless her so hard.
