Amber Riley is fat, and she’s damn proud of it. While recovering from dental surgery, Riley took a stand against body shamers in an Instagram video. Most people who film these types of reaction videos (yes, there’s a whole subgenre) capture themselves babbling nonsense about their childhood pets, but Riley had a message that we were pumped to hear: “When you come on here and you call me fat, it’s not an insult, dummy.”Hell yeah!
You know, there are just some things that my sober mind keeps me from sharing. That ends tonight. I’ve got some things I need to get off my chest: Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I’m confident and I’m fly and I’m sexy? Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy ass offend? Why? Why? Let my big ass live. I let y’all live. I love all colors, shapes, and sizes. So just so you know, when you come on here and you call me fat, it’s not an insult, dummy. My ass is fat, and the fellas love it. And so do I. So eat it.
