Pretty Little Liars Star Troian Bellisario Publicly Calls Out Her Own Show For Slut-Shaming Her Character On Twitter!

After seven seasons, you’d think they’d know not to mess with Spencer by now!

Pretty Little Liars may seem like just a soapy teenage drama to people who don’t watch it, but for young female fans of the Freeform series, a main cast made up almost entirely of girls is pretty damn empowering.

That’s why it’s such a shame the show just kinds slut-shamed Troian Bellisario‘s character after this Tuesday’s all-new episode!

For those of you who don’t know, Troian’s Spencer cheated on her also-cheating boyfriend Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) with a man she met at a bar last week, only to discover this week that he is in fact a cop.

While that twist was excellently portrayed by hottie actor Nicholas Gonzalez, PLL‘s Twitter team took the opportunity to cast some shade Spencer’s way, saying:

“Maybe you shouldn’t make out with strangers in elevators, Spencer. ????”

That may sound like solid advice at first considering the number of murders in the show… until you realize it’s actually super demeaning IRL!

Luckily, Troian is always one to speak her mind, so she also took to the social media service to publicly call out her own show, writing:

She also RTed a fan who backed her:

She’s already a perfectionist on the show, but we think she’s even greater IRL!

Thankfully, Pretty Little Liars‘ Twitter page deleted the tweet shortly after Troian’s accurate read of the situation, so at least they now know better for when Caleb and Hanna (Ashley Benson) eventually get back together.

But with all that said… Spoby forever!!
