Rumer Willis is “bummed out” by body shamers who accused her of looking too thin in a recent social media photo.

“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 on her Instagram Story Tuesday.

Addressing a photo of herself in an orange and yellow outfit, she added, “It was a weird angle that even made me feel like I looked smaller than I do in real life.”

The 32-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis expressed that it was wrong to comment on people’s bodies and called out her haters who criticized her post.

“Even though you may think it’s your job or even your right to leave your unfiltered thoughts or judgements about my body for me and others to read…it’s not,” she wrote.

She also explained that it is counterproductive to shame someone’s body if you believe they are struggling with an eating disorder and can do more harm than good.

“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,” she wrote. “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.”

She added, “Body shaming of any kind is something I will not stand for.”

Along with her powerful message, Willis posted a photo of herself from another angle to show that she is not as thin as how the original photo made her out to be.

“For reference this is another angle and you can see what I actually look like,” she wrote.

Willis had originally posted a photo of herself posing for a photo while wearing orange bell bottoms and a yellow graphic tee while posing next to a matching suitcase.

“Leaving on a 🛩 And honestly I really don’t know if I’ll be back again….👋🏼,” she captioned the pic.

Willis has opened up about her struggles with body image in the past.

“I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs,” Willis said told Glamour in 2015, adding, “For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous.”

She added, “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.”

She had also discussed how so much pressure comes from social media, saying, “Strangers say the nastiest things.”

The actress, who is four years sober, has also discussed her struggle with anxiety.
