Amber Riley Triumphantly Silences Body Shamers in a Hilarious Instagram Video

I got some things I need to get off my chest, and my thighs, and my stomach ๐Ÿ™„

Amber Riley has a lot of questions for all of the body shamers who tend to troll social media platforms โ€” the main one being, "Why?" In an amazing Instagram video, the Glee star unleashed all of her frustrations about uncalled-for comments on her body.

Riley started off the video by questioning why her curvy figure has to be a topic of conversation. Riley said, "Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I'm confident and I'm fly and I'm sexy?" She then launched into a series of questions that are, in a word, glorious: "Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy ass offend? Why?"

Though Riley has lost weight through the years, she's always been an advocate for body diversity and self-love and claimed that her previous weight loss was simply an effort to get healthy and not conform to a certain size expectation.


Riley even got some words of encouragement from fellow Glee alum Naya Rivera, who basically tweeted what we all were thinking, "Get it giiiirrrrlll."
