Emily Simpson usually keeps it very positive on Instagram, speaking out passionately about self-acceptance and kindness. But sometimes enough is enough. The Real Housewives of Orange County mom and body positive activist just wrote a passionate response to social media trolls who wrote cruel things online about her weight and body.
In a response to comments over the RHOC Season 14 cast photo, Emily wrote on Instagram: "For you a--holes out there who feel the need to make derogatory comments on my figure 'photoshopped to look like 50 pounds were taken off' in reference to the Season 14 #RHOC promo pic.... here’s the raw, untouched photo taken with my iPhone by my makeup artist. Looks exactly the same to me! This dress is a size Medium."
She continued, writing: "I’m not sure if you all know this but I’m a woman, I have curves and they are frikin’ hot and amazing ...but I’m also a human and I have feelings too. Why so many of you feel the need to say downright mean, cruel and vicious things.. I truly will never understand it. I hope you find some happiness and peace someday so that attacking someone’s looks and being so vicious doesn’t come so naturally to you. So for all you mean-spirited, cruel and vicious jerks out there... please SWIPE left and kiss my unretouched perfect ASS!"
You tell 'em, Emily! In that Instagram slideshow, Emily looked amazing in a high-cut bodysuit and equally high heels (everyone needs to swipe on that pic). If you think that's hot, just take a look at the stunning leopard print swimsuit she wore at the beach recently.
Emily writes a lot about beauty inside and out, and one of her commenters asked why she wanted to respond to the haters at all. She wrote back: "Most of the time I don't. But sometimes I feel it's necessary to call people out on their atrocious behavior. Maybe it will make a difference. Maybe just maybe they will think next time they bully."
