Rumer Willis flaunts bikini body in Greece after clapping back at ‘skinny-shaming’ trolls
American actress and singer Rumer Willis, the eldest daughter of actress Demi Moore and actor Bruce Willis, has recently been trolled for being too skinny. Days after responding to this trolling, she decided to flaunt her body to her more than 884,000 followers on Instagram.
“Mom’s Red Bull always trying to steal my thunder…” Willis captioned one photo in a one-piece swimsuit. Willis also posted a video montage of moments from her tropical vacation in Greece, like diving off a yacht, dubbing it “paradise.” She also shared a selfie in a blue and pink bikini on her Instagram Story.
On June 29, Willis responded to people body-shaming her on Instagram. “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.
Alongside 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 said 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.
“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.” Willis also posted a photo of herself from another angle to show that she was not as thin as photos made her out to be. “For reference, this is another angle and you can see what I actually look like,” she wrote.
Willis has previously spoken about body image issues she had. “I wanted to have no butt; I wanted to have no boobs,” Willis said in a 2015 interview, “For a long time I just wanted to look tiny and androgynous.” She also said, “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.”
Even then, she said that while she had gained confidence, she still struggled with internet bullies. “The real pressure comes from the Internet and social media -- the mentality that it’s OK to attack people from behind a computer screen,” she said. “Strangers say the nastiest things.”
