Critics call Bruce Willis' wife Emma Heming 'drama queen' for her grieving post, actress shuts them down
It looks like Emma Heming Willis is in no mood whatsoever to catch flak and is attacking them regardless. After sharing a heartfelt post on her Instagram on National Grief Awareness Day about how she manages to cope with "paralyzing grief" following her husband Bruce Willis’ aphasia diagnosis, she was met with some criticism as people on her post called her a "drama queen" and so on.
In response to the critics, the 44-year-old model and actress shared her classy comeback in her now-expired Instagram story captioning, "When you’re not allowed to talk grief, self-care, or being human in the world on grief awareness day." One of the harsh comments that trolled her said how she could, "cope just fine with his $$$." The post in interest was made by Emma on the occasion of National Grief Awareness Day, discussing her "paralyzing grief" regarding the condition of Bruce Willis and the word of wisdom shared by her stepdaughter Scout Willis, 31. She captioned the post, "This was the summer of self discovery—finding new hobbies, going out of my comfort zone and staying active. My grief can be paralyzing but I’m learning how to live along side it. As my step-daughter @scoutlaruewillis told me, grief is the deepest and purest form of love. I hope you find some comfort in that too."
She also added three hashtags '#nationalgriefawarenessday #griefawareness #liveitup.' The video shows Emma enjoying a bunch of old and new hobbies as she explores herself. She can be seen gardening, painting, exercising, cycling, and so on. But people who trolled her criticized her for their own reasons. One such user commented trolling Emma, "So this is what rich people do, I understand now."
Emma replies to the critics trolling her for Grief Awareness post
Emma has previously talked about the sensitive issue of her husband's aphasia diagnosis and that she has been battling mental health. In her interview with The Bump, she says, "I put my family’s needs above my own, which I found does not make me any kind of hero. That amount of care for everyone else within my household had taken a toll on my mental health and overall health, and it served no one in my family. Someone told me not long ago that when you over-care for someone, you end up under-caring for yourself. That stopped me in my tracks and really resonated with me."
Bruce and Emma are nothing short of a power couple and have been enjoying a gala time ever since they tied the knot in 2009. 13 years into the marriage and the couple has been together through thick and thin. The couple also has two children together, Mabel Ray, born in April 2012, and Evelyn Penn, born in May 2014. She is also stepmother to the actor's three daughters with ex-wife Moore.
