ABC’s Good Morning America television presenter Lara Spencer had to delete a photo from her Emmy Awards outfit after she was seriously body shamed on social media. The 49-year-old TV personality wore a silver Alice + Olivia dress and Revolve boots, exposing her legs and some Internet trolls were fast to attack and criticize her …. knees.
“Love you, watch you every day but you’re a mom. What the hell [is] with that outfit? Would have embarrassed my kids,” one person wrote on Instagram. Another said, “You’re not a 20-year-old and [you] look foolish dressed as such. Good body does not allow you to dress like a child at your age.” Then this one wrote: “I feel embarrassed for you. Can you not see that you do not have “young” legs?… #Saggyknees” Seriously what is wrong with people?!
All these hateful comments ended up in Lara deleted her original Instagram post of her outfit, but she kept two photos up from the night of herself with her colleagues. She captioned the snaps: “Dapper. Divine. Delightful. ❤️you.”
Some came to her rescue and supported her: “People can be so cruel and over-[opinionated] … You look happy and healthy and proud. You rocked it lady,” one wrote. Another added, “Reading just a couple comments and wow…..people are really judgemental, but more likely just jealous. You are gorgeous from head to toe. A great athletic build. I envy you! So beautiful!!” Thank God, there’s still hope for humanity!
