This Woman Went Viral After Being Body-Shamed Online, But She Hit Back In A Big Way

Meet Amanda Parker, a gorgeous 22-year-old jewelry specialist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Last weekΒ she got her makeup professionally done for a wedding she was attending, and the artist posted the photo online. By Monday a man stole her photo from the makeup artist’s feed and added the caption “AyEatcha Curry,” a cruel play on Ayesha Curry’s name. He then shared the photo on Twitter and it quickly went viral.

Parker found out about the joke when a close friend sent her a DM about it on Twitter.

“I never once got upset,” she told Buzzfeed News. “I instantly thought to myself,Β He’s obviously not happy with himself and he’s looking got attention.

She continued, “The fact that he went out of his way to body-shame me is said. So I kindly let him know what my name is, and told him next time he can just @ me instead of making up names.”

Despite the overwhelming amount of love she received, Parker says she’s experienced body-shaming online before, but she’s always stood up for herself.

“I do think it’s a huge problem on social media, especially for women,” she said. “I’ve had a similar experience in the past, and I handled that situation the same way. I’m 100% against body-shaming. Anything I can do to display confidence, I do. I really hope I’ve encouraged women of all sizes to defend themselves when it comes to social media bullies.”

Girl, you definitely did. Way to stand up for yourself and not let some horrible Twitter troll get you down.
