Olivia Munn is not about to let the bloggers at Go Fug Yourself critique the actress on her style.
Munn shunned the blog for their harsh criticism after they published a piece about her. “This is just kinda like she got roped into making a sequel to ‘American Hustle’ that ended up going straight to on-demand,” bloggers Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan teased.
Their remarks targeted a Peter Pilotto pantsuit Munn recently wore out. “For years, fashion-policing celebrity has been an accepted mainstream media critique,” Munn wrote in a short essay on Twitter. “Even though it mainly focuses on females and not men, which ultimately contributes to the perpetual minimization of women and propagates the idea is predominantly (or singularly) tied to our looks.”
“At the forefront of this right now are blogs like Go Fug Yourself, created and run by people who have anointed themselves as judge and jury of what’s fashionable,” she continued. “Their blatant hypocrisy is nauseating — they claim to employ some sort of subjective barometer for goodness and beauty even though what they do and write is neither good nor beautiful.”
Blogs like these “shouldn’t get away with spewing whatever vitriol they want just by betting on the antiquated notion that the people they target won’t say anything,” she argued. “We’ve been conditioned as women to feel that we must look and dress a certain way to be accepted.”
