Trolls Accused Her Of Lying About Her Body, So This Instagrammer Shut Them Up With A Video
Social media is a powerful tool, but it's double-edged. Yes, it's a
mighty broadcasting platform to spread your message and connect with
people. But it's also a means for jerks to put people down at arm's
length and without meaningful consequences.
It's easy to reduce
it all and dismiss it as simple attention-seeking, but we all need
attention sometimes. It's a totally valid need. Just think of how you
react when you're trying to grab someone's attention and they ignore
you. Really gets under your skin, right? But not all attention-seekers
go about it in the same way. Some do it in healthy ways, while others
just want to tear people down. Can you blame anybody for wanting to
Even though we're living in a booty-friendly world, where we've agreed that baby having back is a good thing, we still have to deal with internet trolls who just can't deal with bootylicious women like Instagram star Raylynn, the proud owner of a 70-inch
Maybe they're just not ready for that jelly.
This is, of course, all Kim Kardashian's fault.
Flaunting her curves ushered in a new age of shapely booty, and everyone's trying to keep up with her.
Raylynn has attracted more than 300,000 Instagram followers with her abundant booty and, more importantly, a strong commitment to body positivity.
And yet the haters, who are going to hate, just want to put her down.
These people, for some reason, have accused her of using Photoshop to enhance her curves.
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, but Raylynn's proportions do seem to be one-sided.
Maybe it's because she has so much going on around her hips compared to her waist and shoulders that the Internet's cruelty comes out.
So in spite of her body-positive focus, Raylynn took an extraordinary step to silence her critics...
To be clear, Raylynn, a mother of one, is completely comfortable in her own skin.
"Hate only affects those who let it affect them," she wrote in one post.
But sorting through posts with hurtful comments that trash her and accuse her of making sex tapes — which she adamantly refuses having done — has to be incredibly draining.
As if she doesn't have enough trouble finding pants that fit, right?
So she posted a video that shows her dancing around, strutting her stuff.
As you can see, there's no digital trickery involved — she's just shaking what her momma gave her.
Some of Raylynn's fans, trying to be helpful, think they know why she's SO booty-centric...
Although they are almost certainly NOT medical doctors, some of Raylynn's fans speculate that she has a condition called lipedema. In fact, her Instagram bio contains the word lipedema, but nobody knows if that means she has actually been diagnosed.
Lipedema causes fat to be distributed in irregular ways, usually around the hips and butt.
Up to 11 percent of women suffer from lipedema.
However, Raylynn doesn't seem to be too concerned about medical conditions.
She can have fun, even if her haters can't.
And yet, the haters and the trolls have definitely gotten under her skin.
"I see why ppl kill themselves over hate," she wrote in a post.
"It can get heavy...some of u r just ugly souls n I pray God guides you down a better path."
So she's summoning her strength and doubling-down on positivity, keeping her focus on being a force against body-shaming.
"Dare to be different.
Believe in your beauty.
Flaunt your flaws.
U have one life.
Live it," she sums up.
