Chrissy Metz Hits Back at Body Shamers After 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards: “I Wear What I Want, When I Want”

Chrissy Metz had a thing or two to say to everybody criticizing her MTV Movie & TV Awards look. The This Is Us star wore a bold burgundy latex dress along with ballet flats and elegant earrings, but she felt that too many people felt the need to comment on her outfit.

Chrissy tweeted: “For the record, I wear what I want, when I want,” Metz tweeted Sunday night. “News flash it’s MY body. #thankstho”

Chrissy recently spoke to Marie Clarie about body diversity, a topic she supports with all her heart:

“Size doesn’t equate to beauty. I don’t understand why that’s a thing. Well, I do, because the media has told us thin is beautiful. But is it? Because I think people are miserable not eating and smoking cigarettes.”

She added, “I’ve had roommates who were thin girls and constantly working out and trying to stay under a certain size. Even the average girl looks 10 pounds heavier on the screen.”
