Anna Faris is the latest celebrity victim of online bodyshaming.
The “Overboard” actress posted a harmless photo on Tuesday holding a wastebasket. “Having pre-show jitters,” she captioned the image. “So glad [“Unqualified” podcast assisant] Michael Sherman captured it. Also, I eventually decided to put on pants.”
Almost immediately — Internet trolls, haters, and some people who likely felt genuine concern — all began thrashing Faris.
“You look so unhealthy, eat,” one person wrote, according to TMZ. “I feel this pic is a cry for help, I hope you get the help you need,” said another commenter.
Many followers defended Faris in response. “You are beautiful at any size. Health is our concern,” one fan replied. “If you’re healthy and happy that’s all that matters! Continue to be awesome!”
Within 15 minutes, the 41-year-old actress had removed the photo from her profile.
