Lauren Bushnell Defends Herself Against Cruel Body Shamers

If you watched The Bachelor last season, you know that Ben Higgins's now-fiancée, Lauren Bushnell, is pretty tiny. But unfortunately, it sounds like she's getting a lot of flack for her frame, and she's tired of it. This week, Lauren defended herself against body shamers, and it sounds like she's had enough.

After Ben posted a photo of Lauren flexing her arms while they were out at dinner on Wednesday, many commenters took the opportunity to point out how skinny Lauren is. But after reading some of them, Lauren clearly decided it was finally time to speak up for herself.

She's mine. Straight Flexin. #fitgirl

At first, she commented on the photo talking to Ben to tell him that he shouldn't have posted it, because it's "literally asking for trolls to comment on my weight." And then, she shared a message for fans herself, too. 

Her comment said: 

THIS IS THE EXACT SAME WEIGHT I WAS WHEN I STARTED THE BACHELOR THEN I DRANK WINE EVERY DAY WITH @amanda_stantonn AND THEN AFTER THE SHOW I DIDNT DRINK WINE EVERY DAY GET OFF MY SH*T THIS IS HOW GOD MADE ME BYE

Way to go, Lauren! She makes a good point -- drinking every day will put weight on you (unfortunately enough), but the good news? When you stop a sudden habit like that, the weight sometimes comes right back off. Plus, Lauren has been hitting the gym a lot, too. 

We're glad Lauren decided to defend herself against the haters. Of course, there will be haters no matter what, because that's what comes with reality fame. But it's awesome she's willing to fight back and stand up for herself. Yet another reason to love her!
