When Ashley Stevens found a photo of her and boyfriend Christopher Reed on Reddit and saw people commenting about her boyfriend’s appearance–saying he was "skinny but fat in the wrong places"–she posted a lengthy, epic response to people fat-shaming him, reports Redbook,
"It surprises me how many people are so quick to judge when they don't even know you. Well let me just tell you, I won the jackpot with Christopher. He may not have rock hard abs like the world tells girls to want in a guy, but really, why does that even matter when you are trying to really find someone to spend the rest of your life with? He is so thoughtful and patient, he always shows me how he loves me in little ways, he is my best friend. I love him for who he is and he loves me for who I am. Understanding, loving, and hilarious, which is so rare to find these days!! Since I was young, (like many other little girls) I dreamed about who I would end up with, once I gave my life to Christ and saw examples of Godly marriages and relationships, I wanted that. God saw the desires of my heart and blessed me with Christopher. He brings me closer to God through prayer, and his love. I know God will use us both for awesome things because we make a great team! So as of us and those rude comments, we know the truth and we will block out the haters. Enjoy our picture though. Lol"
Reed, on the other hand, was grateful for the support they have received. "I couldn't be more thankful for the support and love from our family and friends. We're here because of you and we wouldn't trade you for the world. We love y'all."
Way to go, Ashley!
