Y’all gonna let actress and singer Amber Riley live, or else she will make you.

The Former Glee and Wiz Live star took to Instagram on Friday to address her body-shaming haters to let her and her thighs be.

“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 of my chest,” Riley, 30, said in the personal video. 

She goes on: “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.”


The Atlanta Star reported that perhaps her courage was due to the pain killers she was on after recently getting her teeth pulled.

Either way, we are all here for her truth, as was Twitter.

In the end, if you don’t like how Riley looks, that’s your business. But please keep your nasty comments to yourself and let her (and us) celebrate and love her for who she is–curves and all.
