Instagram Star Kerri Verna Had The Perfect Response For Butt-Shaming Trolls

"NEVER let anyone's opinion make you feel bad or shameful about your body. It's just a shell ... It doesn't define you."

Or Meditating:

#monthofmeditation day 8. Each day we have a choice to be kind, forgiving, thoughtful or be hurt, sad, unloving and unforgiving. Choosing love is a willful conscience decision. Expecting to wake up in a loving and forgiving mood is in my opinion an unrealistic expectation. I think as humans it’s easier to be negative, to feel hurt, and to hold grudges. But, if we want to be free of our baggage we can let go, forgive, be kind and chose to love. ? Join me today on Periscope for meditation. Add me “beachyogagirl”. ? .

Or mastering a breathtaking vinyasa amidst billowy clouds:

But when an Internet commenter suggested her butt was too large to wear white shorts, she removed her white-bottomed photos immediately. But then she thought better of it, and posted this photo.

Let’s talk about body shaming for a moment. Last time I wore white someone commented what a large a$$ I had and that I shouldn’t wear white. Even though I’m totally happy with my body and completely self confident with my body image, I will say on that particular day I wasn’t feeling my best. I immediately deleted the photo and began to look closely at all my photos. Not that I thought I was “fat” but I began to question wearing white and if it “made me look fat”. After a good night sleep, I woke up the next day wondering WHY IN THE WORLD did I let some random internet “troll” bother me so much as to actually delete a photo!! You see, these photos are for me and no one else. I love fashion, photography, puppies, yoga, fitness, and the beach. They ARE all FOR ME and I’m quite happy with who I AM. If someone is inspired by me that makes it even better. So, if you think my butt is too big to wear white or you think white makes my butt looks too big in this photo and you want to tell me … 1. You are a troll. And 2. Thank you for your opinion but I didn’t ask and I don’t care. ? #sorrynotsorry Women OF ALL SIZES need to LOVE their bodies and wear white shorts if you want to! If you like it, wear it … NEVER let anyone’s opinion make you feel bad or shameful about your body. It’s just a shell … It doesn’t define you.

She explained that when she deleted her first post, “on that particular day I wasn’t feeling my best.” She began to doubt herself and “began to question wearing white and if it ‘made me look fat.'”

After sleeping on it, she woke up feeling way more empowered, and she delivered a message to her critics.

“If you think my butt is too big to wear white or you think white makes my butt looks too big in this photo and you want to tell me … 1. You are a troll. And 2. Thank you for your opinion but I didn’t ask and I don’t care,” she wrote. “Women OF ALL SIZES need to LOVE their bodies and wear white shorts if you want to! If you like it, wear it …NEVER let anyone’s opinion make you feel bad or shameful about your body. It’s just a shell … It doesn’t define you.”
