Bravery comes in all forms. Liz Krueger, a 31-year-old Minnesota fitness instructor, probably did not think to herself "I'm an American hero" when she chose to wear a form-fitting mini dress to attend a summer wedding. But after getting slut-shamed by wedding guests, she has responded by waging a war of kindness against real life mean girls everywhere.


Here's the story: Krueger says wedding guests ganged up against her, mocked her appearance, and even slapped her ass and spilled beer on her, likely because of her dress.

“Someone spilled a beer down my arm and there was no apology given,” Krueger told Us Weekly. “Not sure if it was intentional, but it was done. The looks and stares continued after that, and I felt so unwelcome and embarrassed.”



Krueger has turned her battle with cattiness into a publicity stunt social movement that's sadly necessary, creating the #KruegerKindess hashtag to encourage women to support each other. “I’m going to actively make it a priority to do good things for other women, every single day from here on out,” she wrote in a July 2 Instagram post. “If you want to join me in this movement, share your stories on social media with #KruegerKindess and let's kill all the mean girls with kindness.”

She says her feedback from people online has been positive so far, so take that haters. “People have been saying, ‘I’m in!’ and ‘I love this!'” she said.

Twitter of course weighed in, with some coming to her defense:

While others doubted her heroism:

But UK mommy blogger Constance Hall is #teamkrueger all the way. "Looking back on my wedding I am disappointed that I didn’t write on the invitations, 'Please flaunt it, flaunt your body, whether it be rolls or muscles, skinnyminnies and magnificent curves, tall ones, short ones, round ones straight ones, I want a selection," she wrote in a blog post. "I especially like what you wore to this wedding because it oozes pride and fuck, you should be SOOOOO proud."

Krueger has certainly not been quiet on social media since the incident captured public attention. In a June 30 Facebook post, she thanked Hall, writing:

I am not playing a victim.
I am not attention seeking.
I am not vain.
I am not slutty.
I was not trying to upstage a bride.
I didn't have an agenda when i put on this dress.
In not trying to name names or call anyone out.
I'm not 'a model trying to heighten my career.'

Seems like Krueger is SOOOOOO proud. She may have been gotten some major undeserved shade at that wedding, but at least she's getting the last word(s).
