Miranda Lambert isn’t letting the weight of comments made by Internet trolls drag her down. After a glitzy night out at the 50th Annual CMA Awards with her boyfriend, singer/songwriter Anderson East, the Texas native posted a picture of the two with a caption stating she was a ‘lucky girl.’ Unfortunately, the photo prompted some nasty comments from users and encouraged Lambert to stand up against their nasty words.
“Every now and then I decide to re-join the world of social media and post something really personal. Not promoting anyone or anything. Not selling a better version of myself to anyone or trying to look cool like we all do all the time. Just a picture that either I or someone I know and care about took the time to take and see the beauty in. This is one of those moments that im proud of,” she wrote in part.
“But… Last night I was all dolled up and “out on the town” with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville. I was excited about the night and posted a picture,” she continued. “Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative. Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language. What a bunch of bull shit. Thank y’all for reminding me why I read books , write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love.”
She closed her post with a quote from Maya Angelou.
“Preach,” wrote Fairchild. “Words that hurt, words that heal.”
