On May 20, Amber Riley, feeling the effects of some post-dental work painkillers, posted a video to Instagram, talking about stuff that her "sober mind" wouldn't normally allow her to say. The 30-year-old actor—best known for playing diva Mercedes Jones on Glee—had some things she wanted to get off her chest. And, as her caption says, her thighs and stomach, too.
Riley asks why people have such a problem with her being fat—is it because she's confident, fly, and sexy? (Yes, and also because some people are judgmental, petty, insecure and ignorant.)
Whatever the reason for online trolls talking about her body, Riley wants any would-be body shamers to know that being called fat is not an insult. "My ass is fat. And the fellas love it. And so do I. So eat it."
Riley's fans also love her ass, and let her know as much in the comments on the post.
So take that, body shamers of Instagram, and for the love of god, just let Amber Riley's ass live.
