Chrissy Metz, known for her work on This Is Us, hit back at body shamers who ridiculed her for wearing a latex dress to the MTV Movie Awards.


Metz wore a knee-length latex dress with ruffled sleeves, and paired the outfit with dangling earrings and sparkly flats. Apparently the 36-year-old received some offensive messages about her weight and clothing choices, so the actress fired back on Twitter.

“For the record, I wear what I want, when I want,” the tweet read. “News flash it’s MY body. #thankstho.”

Metz, whose hit NBC show was nominated for multiple awards Sunday and took home the award in the Tearjerker category, has been outspoken about her weight, and body shamers in general. After Lady Gaga performed at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, Metz commented on all the haters who were bashing Gaga’s body. “That made me bonkers, bananas crazy,” she said in February. “How is someone fat if they’re not fat? I wanna see somebody else get on that damn stage and do what the hell she did.”

Why not start now? ?
