Candace Cameron Bure clapped back hard at a troll who tried to body-shame her on Instagram
Unfortunately, internet trolls are something that most celebrities have to deal with on a daily basis. But don’t even think about trying to body-shame Candace Cameron Bure — she’s already got the perfect comebacks all lined up.
As Cosmopolitan reported on April 24th, a troll left a body-shaming comment on one of Bure’s Instagram posts this week, and let’s just say she wasn’t having it. The photo itself, which the Fuller House star posted on April 14th, is pretty darn cute: Bure and her son, Lev, posed together when they went out to dinner at Nobu, and as Bure wrote in her caption, they were “celebrating a new direction.” It’s a sweet mother-son photo, but of course, someone had to try to bring her down.
“All that exersizing [sic], and you still look like you weigh more than your husband, did you change your diet?” a commenter wrote, according to a screenshot from Cosmo. Um, rude much? And BTW, that’s not her husband — that’s her 18-year-old son, not like that‘s the part that truly matters.
But you don’t have to worry about Bure because it doesn’t sound like she let this rude comment get to her — at least, not according her response.
“Nice, troll,” she wrote with a smiley face emoji, before coming back to add, “If a 25 inch waist looks big to you… then you’re looking through an altered lens. Be well.”
Damn. That response honestly couldn’t be more perfect — and it’s good to see that Bure knows the problem isn’t with the way she looks, the problem is with the person who’s looking at her through their phone or computer screen. Because first of all, Bure doesn’t look like she’s gained weight at all. And even if she had? Who TF cares? It wouldn’t have been appropriate to make that kind of comment in the first place.
For the record, Bure is an absolute beast in the gym; anyone who follows her on Insta can attest. It’s clear that health and fitness are both big parts of her life, but like we said before, even if they weren’t, it still wouldn’t be acceptable to body-shame her. Period.
We’re so glad women like Bure have the confidence to clap back — it’s an undeniable inspiration to anyone who’s faced a bully, online or IRL.
