Instagrammer claps back at body shamers who 'couldn't believe' she landed 'Mr. 6-Pack'
While we have graduated beyond having our heads shoved into lockers and getting our lunch money stolen, it's apparent that this new age of internet bullies work around the clock. But regardless of whether Twitter is your platform of choice, of if you prefer posting selfies to Instagram, one thing is for sure: trolls will come flooding in as soon as you establish a following.
Case in point: Jenna Kutcher and her husband Drew have been together since 2009, but that hasn't stopped the people of the internet from criticising their love, and comparing Jenna's curvy physique to that of her health coach husband's.
Jenna, however, is determined not to let the haters get her down, and posted a powerful message in which she defied the trolls, and preached about body positivity.
The Instagrammer shared some of the mean comments she's received on Instagram about her body, writing "Someone once slid into my DMs and told me they couldn’t believe I had managed to land a guy as good looking as @kickingitwithkutch. I’ll be honest that I was taken aback."
Jenna then admitted that she does occasionally feel insecure about being married to "Mr 6-Pack himself".
"Why should I, a curvy girl get him? I feel unworthy and when I write narratives in my head that because I am not thin, I don’t deserve him," she continued.
"This man has embraced every curve, every dimple, pound and pimple for the last ten years and has always reminded me that I’m beautiful even when my inner dialogue doesn’t match (and when I haven’t showered in days.) So yes, my thighs kiss, my arms are big, and my bum is bumpy but there is just more of me for him to love and I chose the man that could handle alllll that (and so much more!)"
The 29-year-old's post has since been liked over 151,000 times, and her passionate response has been almost universally praised.
"You are beautiful and a real woman has curves!" one Instagram user commented, while others shared similar stories about their own relationships: "I immediately recognised myself in you. Having a similar body type like you and my boyfriend having a killer body. I always feel so insecure. Your post encourages me so much, thank you! And we are all gorgeous!"
Drew also had his wife's back, and posted an adorable reminder of the vows they made on their wedding day.
