Rumer Willis is blasting several of her followers for leaving “really inappropriate” messages on social media after she shared a new set of photos where several people say she looks alarmingly too thin.
Demi Moore’s daughter addressed the barrage of messages on social media by posting another image of herself, and discussing how “bummed out” she is over the body shamers who flooded her accounts. “After the barrage of some really inappropriate comments left on my pic I posted yesterday I was left really bummed cause I was really enjoying the silly pics I took,” Willis wrote.
She continued, describing the picture of herself, “It was a weird angle that even made me feel like I looked smaller than I do in real life.”

Rumer went on to explain it isn’t right for people to troll others on social media, even celebrities, and comment on their bodies and criticize the way that they look. She included a message to anyone who is actually concerned about someone’s health, saying they should reach out directly to that person and have a conversation.
“Even though you may think it’s your job or even your right to leave your unfiltered thoughts or judgments about my body for me and others to read…it’s not,” she wrote.
As for how thin she appears in the photos, Rumer added, “Also just to give clarity if I was really struggling with any kind of food issues ( which I’m gratefully not) coming for me in my comments and telling me how I’m too skinny or I need to eat is absolutely not helpful and extremely body shaming.”
Adding, “If you were actually concerned for my health snd [sic] welfare or anyone you think may be actually struggling, send them a dm and have a private conversation and really ask how they are doing if they would like support instead of posting inflammatory public comments.”
Rumer Willis: I Will Not Stand For Body-Shaming Of Any Kind!
Bottom line, she wrote, “Body shaming of any kind is something I will not stand for.”
To make her point clear, Rumer added a photo of herself from a different angle which shows a more accurate depiction of what she looks like, saying, “For reference, this is another angle and you can see what I actually look like.”
Interestingly, it appears Rumer has had enough with the trolls on social media and says she might be giving it up for good. This isn’t the first time Willis has discussed the pressure that comes with social media, saying in the past, “strangers say the nastiest things.” Adding, “When you grow up in the public eye the way that I did, everyone’s looking at you and waiting for you to do something crazy or say something wrong or have a meltdown. I was constantly bullied because of my looks, so I struggled a lot with my body image.”
