Hollywood Star Slammed For Thanksgiving Message

Hollywood star Sarah Michelle Gellar was posted a reminder for herself not to eat too much on Thanksgiving to Instagram and apparently some people thought she was fat-shaming people. After backlash, the actress was forced to apologize.

According to The Daily Wire:

Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” posted a reminder to herself not to overeat this Thanksgiving.

“I’m just going to pin these up all over my house as a reminder not to overeat on Thursday #thanksgivingprep,” Gellar wrote Monday in an Instagram caption as she posted four images of herself in lingerie.

People were not happy:

“Wow,” said another. “Really shocked that a woman in a position of influence and a mother would post this s—. Is that where you place your value? On the size of your thighs? Or your protruding hip bones? Nothing positive comes from this post. Only narcissism and the bulls— theory that women need to be skinny to be acceptable. You should remove this post. Immediate unfollow from me.”

Gellar issued an apology:

“It’s come to my attention that some people think I was ‘fat shaming’ with this post,” she wrote in the comments section. “That could not be further from my intentions. I love Thanksgiving and unfortunately my eyes are often bigger than my stomach, and I tend to eat so much I make myself sick. This was a joking reminder to myself not to do that.”

Some commenters did come to ger defense and pointed out that people do not have to be offended by everything that isn’t sensitive to their feelings on the internet. This is the world we live in today.
