A.M. Ambition: Shut Down Your Haters


Amber Riley is fed up with body-shamers clocking her “fat ass.” The Glee star took to Instagram to shut down folks who constantly critique her plus-size frame. “I got some things I need to get off my chest, and my thighs, and my stomach,” she captioned the clip before laying into her critics (and while also hopped up on painkillers).

“Why does me being fat offend so many people,” she asks. “Is it because I’m confident, and I’m fly, and I’m sexy? Do my thighs, offend? Does my stomach, offend? Does my big juicy ass, offend? Why? Why!?”

I got some things I need to get off my chest, and my thighs, and my stomach 🙄

Riley’s no rookie at roasting those who come for her as she’s been known to go toe-to-toe with Internet thugs in her comment section. “Let my big ass live,” she continues. “I love all colors, shapes and sizes. So, just so you know, when you come on here and you call me fat, it’s not an insult, dummy.”

Though your self-acceptance and high self-esteem may help you drown out your haters, sometimes life calls for you to fight back with a clapback as candid as this one. “My ass is fat and the fellas love it,” Riley adds. “And so do I. So eat it.”
