Woman Claps Back At Bully Who Fat-Shamed Her After A Marathon & Her Classy Reply Blew Us Away

I never understood going out of your way to say something vile.

These trolls and bullies love to make others feel bad about themselves, and for what? No reason, and they’re all coagulated on the internet already! They hide behind the security of their keyboards and write nonsense about others.

This is just one instance from thousands of others that go unnoticed. You see, someone tried to fat-shame Kelly Roberts, a New York based marathon runner who posts pictures of herself running, eating, jumping e.t.c on her Instagram.

Her journey started when her 16-year-old brother died.

And because of her grief she packed on 75 pounds.

Kelly also launched #SportsBraSquad as she got more popular on social media.

But apparently there are people who can’t stand that someone they find to be more “fat” than them to have more athletic achievements than they ever could.

Kelly received an email from one such person.

She however, had the perfect response to this bully.

Dear man who found it appropriate to send me this email,

Once upon a time, your words would have cut me like valyrian steel. Today? They remind me how important it is to change the way we see strength. Because what you call fat, I know can run a marathon in 3 hours in 41 minutes. I hope one day you can obtain the strength I’ve worked tirelessly for. Until then, know that I will spend the rest of my life empowering the women you hope to shame.

You will lose. You already are. The #SportsBraSquad is strong as hell.

See you at the finish line. I’ll be the one giving you a high five when you get there.

People applauded her for the perfect response.

As a bereaved sibling myself, I am utterly appalled at this man’s message. There are too many people out there who have no idea what it’s really like & have no compassion or sympathy whatsoever. That man is a bully, plain & simple. You are so inspiring!
