Kaley Cuoco claps back at nipple-shamers commenting on her post-surgery workout
When you post photos on social media, it feels great to get compliments on your appearance. "You've lost weight!" "Your hair looks amazing!" "I love your new face tattoo of Hello Kitty!" But when trolls criticize your body, it can be pretty annoying. Thankfully, if you're a total nobody, you don't have to deal with a lot of snarky strangers. However, celebrities have millions of followers, and bodyshamers pop up like whack-a-mole.
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco recently married equestrian Karl Cook, the son of billionaire Scott Cook. What a relief! The actress only makes $1 million per episode of The Big Bang Theory, which has 24 episodes every season. I was worried for a moment she was going to broke. However, disaster struck during her honeymoon. Rather than bask in romantic bliss, she had to get shoulder surgery.
Karl shared a photo from the hospital, grinning while Kaley frowned. The caption read: "When your ‘honeymoon’ is shoulder surgery and your husband looks just as happy lol on the road to recovery – thank you for all the love and support! Knowing @mrtankcook I’m sure he will be posting tons of hilarious gems. Thank god my hair color is on point."
It is unknown whether the surgery was planned, or the result of an accident. But Kaley took the ordeal in stride, joking about her dire "honeymoon glow" in another caption. And the actress didn't waste time getting back on her feet. A few weeks after surgery, Kaley posted videos of herself working out at the gym while wearing a sling.
In the comment section, many people praised her one-armed workout, while others criticized her bra choice. If you happen to be look at Kaley's chest in the video - and I know you were, perv! - you will notice that her nipples are visible. "Where’s your bra" asked one commenter. "I like your nipples," added another. "The best breasts are meant to be seen in moderation," scolded a third.
Some fans leapt to Kaley's defense, irritated women's bodies comes under such constant scrutiny. "Can we all see a woman doing something, showing her strength, and for ONCE not mention her appearance?" one commenter wondered. "OMG call a press conference," wrote another sarcastic commenter, "human female has nipples and sometimes you can see them, and her boobs aren’t rock-solid globes that don’t ever move, THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW!"
Kaley replied to the bra police, explaining that her sartorial options are limited due to her sling: "FYI because of my shoulder, I can only get certain bras over my head. NOT THAT IT'S ANYONE'S BUSINESS." Contrary to popular belief, women don't enjoy getting creepy comments about their nipples while at the gym. I know, it sounds crazy, but it's true.
Well, if you millions of followers on social media like Kaley, you're bound to get some disrespectful comments. Now bodyshamers know that if they take a shot at her, she might clap back.
