Chrissy Metz Defends Latex Dress, Sends Message to Body Haters

by at .

Chrissy Metz stars on the smash hit drama This Is Us.

But she sent a message late Sunday night to a bunch of morons on the Internet, and it can be summed up as follows:



Chrissy Metz on Stage

The outspoken actress appeared as the MTV Movie & TV Awards Sunday night in a gorgeous dark-red knee-length latex dress with ruffled sleeves, completing her look with dangling earrings and shimmery flats.

It was a bold look, but also a beautiful look.

In our opinion, at least.

But this apparently was not an opinion shared by everyone online.

A number of moronic/idiotic/close-minded/angry/bitter/jealous trolls on social media slammed Metz for the ensemble, basically saying someone with her body type should not wear such an outfit.

(Just in case you needed another reminder that the World Wide Web can be an awful place.)

The 36-year old star clearly reads her mentions or was told by followers about these body-shamers, prompting her to Tweet a message to these judgmental fools.

It was a short one, a simple one and a perfect one.

“For the record, I wear what I want, when I want. News flash it’s MY body," Metz Tweeted, adding as a sarcastic hashtag: #thankstho.”


Metz - whose NBC sries was nominated for multiple awards Sunday night and which has already been renewed for Season 2 and 3 - is sadly no stranger to weight-related criticism, both regarding herself and others.

“That made me bonkers, bananas crazy,” the actress said in February of negative responses Lady Gaga received during her Super Bowl halftime show after donning a midriff-baring ensemble.

She added at the time:

“How is someone fat if they’re not fat? I wanna see somebody else get on that damn stage and do what the hell she did.”

Along with her This Is Us co-stars Mandy Moore and Susan Kelechi Watson, Metz also penned an emotional letter for People Magazine's 2017 World’s Most Beautiful issue last month, pleading with her younger self to “stop comparing yourself to anyone or anything.”

She continued:

“You are just as important and beautiful as Amy, the most gorgeous cheerleader in your entire school, even if your hair isn’t the perfect natural shade of honey blonde or because your clothes aren’t from Guess or that your curves look VERY different from hers.

"We are all on our own journey and YOU are the driver. There will be bumps in the road, detours to be taken and pit stops will have to be made, but you’ve got to fill ‘er up and keep going.

"You will lose your map, but never your intuition."

Thankfully, the lovers spoke as loudly as the haters on Metz' timeline.

She received the following replies to her clap back against those awful weight haters:
