Even before her foray into the MCU, actress Florence Pugh spoke her mind no matter what fans had to sya.

From addressing critics to defending her erstwhile relationship, she will not allow trolls to control her.

This time, Florence is hitting back hard against body-shaming weirdos.

Their target? Her breasts.

Florence Pugh looked like an absolute knockout at the Valentino Haute Couture show in Rome over the weekend.

As one can easily see, the dress is not exactly opaque. People could see the outlines of her nipples.

This is not that unusual in the fashion world. Unfortunately, people did more than just stare.

Obviously, some trolls who came after her were prudes, who thinks that breasts and nipples are shameful.

Then there were others, arguably an even worse batch (if possible) who simply insulted her breast size.

Taking to Instagram, Florence penned a lengthy and righteous caption to clap back at body-shaming weirdos who insulted her.

“Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress,” Florence’s caption began.

She knew “that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it.”

Florence acknowledged: “Whether it be negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing.”

“I was excited to wear it, not a wink of me was nervous,” Florence shared.

She affirmed: “I wasn’t before, during or even now after.”

Though Florence has appeared topless in films before (Marcella, The Little Drummer Girl, Outlaw King), fashion is exciting in its own way.

“What’s been interesting to watch and witness,” Florence remarked.

She continued: “is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body.”

These men will do so “publicly, proudly, for everyone to see.”

“You even do it with your job titles and work emails in your bio..?” Florence noted with a tone of incredulity.

“It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time,” she acknowledged grimly.

“A woman will hear what’s wrong with her body,” Florence noted, informed “by a crowd of strangers.”

Florence then pointed out: “what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be.”

She affirmed: “Thankfully, I’ve come to terms with the intricacies of my body that make me, me.”

Florence declared: “I’m happy with all of the ‘flaws’ that I couldn’t bear to look at when I was 14.”

“So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny tits,'” Florence noted.

She continued: “or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested.'”

“I’ve lived in my body for a long time,” Florence wrote. “I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it.”

“What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts?” Florence very reasonably asked.

She listed: “Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none? What. Is. So. Terrifying.”

Florence added: “It makes me wonder what happened to you to be so content on being so loudly upset by the size of my boobs and body..?”

“I’m very grateful that I grew up in a household with very strong, powerful, curvy women,” Florence wrote.

“We were raised to find power in the creases of our body,” she noted. “To be loud about being comfortable.”

Florence declared: “It has always been my mission in this industry to say ‘fuck it and fuck that.'”

That is how she responds “Whenever anyone expects my body to morph into an opinion of what’s hot or sexually attractive.”

“I wore that dress because I know,” Florence noted.

“If being loudly abusive towards women publicly in 2022 is so easy for you,” she continued.

Florence went on: “then the answer is that it is you who doesn’t know.”

“Grow up. Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect humans,” she instructed.

Florence assured: “Life will get a whole lot easier, I promise.”

“And all because of two cute little nipples….” she remarked in dismay.

Florence concluded her caption with the tag: “#fuckingfreethef–kingnipple”

Well said, ma’am.
