Maren Morris is having a hell of a year. She got her first #1 country song, a #1 pop song, married Ryan Hurd, touring with former One Direction star Niall Horan and is working on her 2nd album. However, over the weekend she sparked a debate when she posted the photo below on social media.
In my opinion, Maren looks flawless and more power to her for wearing whatever she feels comfortable in. However, one person commented on the photo saying, “Don’t cry foul when your asked to perform sex acts by a male…respect yourself and coverup!!”
Naturally, Maren couldn't sit back and ignore it. She replied saying, “Um, I’m married to @ryanhurd and he doesn’t need to ask 😉." Maren is known for clapping back at anybody who tries to troll her, but this time her husband also stepped in.
A few days later, Maren posted another photo saying the following:
Some turds on my last picture had the cowardly gall to suggest that I deserved creepy sexual advances from men for my clothing, so I ought to cover up, & I thought it was pretty horrifying. I realize I chose this career and I chose to put a picture on this platform, but choosing to illicit sex acts from wearing a bodysuit? No. That is what’s wrong with it all. I refuse to ever, EVER be ashamed of the body God gave me. I’m proud to be Irish, Native American, English... proud of my cellulite and proud of my strong back + arms. I worked my ass off on my body the last few months, and I’m proud to show that work. All day little girls + boys are measuring themselves against societal shame & fake photoshopped bodies on Instagram. So what I guess I’m saying is, I didn’t choose to be a role model for body-shaming, judgmental nobodies; I LOVE being a role model for kids and anyone who’s just trying to figure out how to love themselves every day. Screw the haters and eat your damn cheeseburger. 🍔 #StrongNotSkinny
I say, "you go girl!" And hats off to Ryan Hurd too for defending his lady.
