Busy Philipps Shut Down A Body-Shaming Troll By Correcting His Grammar

The "Dawson's Creek" actress made sure to cross her Ts and dot her Is in this burn. 😂

Busy Philipps is shutting up body-shamers, one grammatical correction at a time. 

“Today is #TheAwesomeChallenge and my workout every morning makes me feel awesome (even on the days when I’d rather stay in bed, like today),” the actress wrote Tuesday alongside an Instagram photo of herself in workout gear.

The post was relatively standard, nothing too newsworthy to report. That is, until someone commented on it a few hours later, writing: “Ughhh, you’re rolls are showing.”

Never fear, Philipps responded with the perfect quip. 

“I feel like a man of your age should know the difference between YOUR and YOU’RE,” Philipps wrote, the Instagram account Comments by Celebs first noted. “YOUR is POSSESSIVE, as in ‘YOUR rolls are showing.’ (Get it? The rolls BELONG to me.) YOU’RE is an abbreviation for YOU ARE, as in YOU’RE CLEARLY AN A**HOLE BODYSHAMING LOSER.”

The actress has long been an advocate for spreading body love. Philipps told HuffPost last year that she’s raising her two daughters, Cricket and Birdie, to love their bodies despite outside pressures. 

“Birdie’s recently gotten into rock climbing, which I love because it really makes her body feel strong,” she said at the time. “And I try to emphasize in terms of body image that strength is so important and feeling strong and good and healthy is really important.”

“They see me, and I try to live my life as such,” she added. “I’m not perfect. I’m also an actress. I succumb to a lot of things that I wish I didn’t in terms of body image and the way that I feel about myself. But we do the best we can, all of us. And that’s ultimately what I hope my girls get across.”
