Daisy Ridley is the latest star to chime in on body shaming.
Well, quite frankly, the 23-year-old beauty has had enough — and we don’t blame her!
Miz Ridley took a screenshot of a recent hater’s post and had a powerful message to say in the caption. Take a look (below)!
What’s weird is most of the time I see such gorgeous messages from people around the world. People who relate to something in Rey they haven’t found in a female character before. People who’s daughters now think they can do things without the aid of a man, but who wouldn’t be ashamed to ask for help. People who loved that The Force Awakens has multiple incredible female characters. It is much more hurtful to continue to slate other women than BE a woman, BE a character, BE whoever you want to be. I’m a normal girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, just like Rey. I will not apologise for how I look, what I say and how I live my life cause what’s happening inside is much more important anyway and I am striving to be the best version of myself, even if I stumble along the way. It seems apt I get tagged in this a day after I received misogynistic comments on my #IWD post. For all of you who celebrate each other, celebrate the ones you love, love yourselves, work hard, are kind, thank you for your continued support and the social media love. For anyone who has a problem with ANYONE in life, be them someone you know or someone you don’t, remember that expression, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Kindness isn’t going to cure the world of all its awfulness but it’s a good place to begin.A photo posted by @daisyridley on Mar 9, 2016 at 9:47am PST
BOOM. Nicely done, Daisy!
This message comes on the heels of Kim Kardashian West‘s latest essay about not understanding “why people get so bothered by what other people choose to do with their lives” after her controversial nude snap.
Whatever your opinion is on the matter, we’re happy to see these strong women standing up for themselves!
