AceShowbiz – Leighton Meester is not letting any online troll slide. The pregnant “Gossip Girl” alum found herself being subjected to fat-shaming when taking part in an Instagram Live chat, and was quick to call out the rude commentator.
On Wednesday, April 15, the 34-year-old went live on the photo-sharing site to talk to her “Single Parents” co-star Kimrie Lewis. While the two of them were discussing issues, she noticed a mean comment from one individual. “Somebody just told me I got fat – that’s nice,” she sarcastically said.
The wife of actor Adam Brody went on to read the troll’s username out loud and proceeded to say hi to him. Jumping to her defense, her chat pal Kimrie also expressed her disagreement at the insensitive comment. “That’s not nice, you guys,” the 38-year-old told viewers.
Despite the brief interruption, Leighton and Kimrie managed to continue their fun discussion. They talked about how the “Country Strong” actress is coping with quarantining during the coronavirus pandemic and how she celebrated her birthday, which fell on April 9, during self-isolation.
Leighton Meester called out a fat-shamer.
About her special day, Leighton spilled, “I went nowhere.” She added, “I got a Passover brisket and kugel delivered and coconut macarons and lots of soup. I had a cake as well, a chocolate 3-grain cake. I ate it all, the whole thing. It was better than my midday cereal. It was very good and wonderful.”
The “Heartstrings” singer additionally revealed the gifts her mother-in-law gave her for her birthday. “I got these earrings and some overalls. I wore a sheet mask for, like, 10 minutes. I wanted to be with my family, which is all I could ask for,” she shared.
Leighton is expecting her second child with Adam. She was first spotted with a growing baby bump when enjoying a walk in Los Angeles with her husband, who was pushing their four-year-old daughter Arlo in a stroller, on March 31. During the outing, she wore a loose-fitting pair of black overalls to cover her gray T-shirt.
