Maren Morris, Ryan Hurd Clap Back After Haters Shame Her Clothing Choices
As reported by Taste of Country, Morris posted a picture of herself serving a "LEWK," as she called it, and an internet troll decided it was their job to not-so-kindly comment. The poster said that if Morris wanted to wear revealing outfits and post pictures of herself wearing them online, she shouldn't be offended if men objectify her and expect to be able to ask her for sex.
Morris, being the confident woman she is, quickly responded that she's happily married, and that her man doesn't even need to ask.
Hurd, on the other hand opted to jump in full force and defend his wife: "I don’t usually respond because Maren can handle herself," he writes. "But I had a whole response to this based on the fact that usually only dudes leave that s--t on here but you’re a woman! Wow! Maybe even a mom, I didn’t check but I would hope no one ever said something like that to you or maybe your poor, poor daughter, who will probably grow up in a house that tells her that her own body is a bad thing.
"Maren isn’t naked," Hurd continued, "Leave my wife alone and go back in the hole you crawled out of."
After receiving some backup from her husband, Morris took to Instagram to address the problem of people thinking it is okay to dictate how she should live her life. Morris made it clear that she stands by her decision to post the photo.
"I refuse to ever, EVER be ashamed of the body God gave me," she writes. "I’m proud to be Irish, Native American, English ... proud of my cellulite and proud of my strong back + arms. I worked my ass off on my body the last few months, and I’m proud to show that work."
Kudos to Hurd for proving that, although Morris is one tough cookie, it is always nice to have the support of your partner. Look above for the picture that got everyone talking and Morris' inspirational response post.
This isn't the first time people have tried to ruffle Morris' feathers online. In December of 2017, a Twitter user asked invasive questions about her body. Morris posted a photo of herself in a bikini, and a random Twitter user responded by asking the singer if she'd had breast augmentation surgery. "Not that it would be any of your business, but I didn't," Morris writes in response. "But guess what? You just won a meet and greet of your choice so you can come and say that to my face." That's what we call a social media win!
