Chrissy Metz is thanking the people who have recently supported her. The This Is Us actress attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards this past weekend and wore a burgundy latex dress with ballet flats.
However, after the award show, Chrissy received a ton of backlash. Some people said that because of her size, her outfit choice was inappropriate. Chrissy responded to the haters over the weekend, tweeting:
For the record, I wear what I want, when I want. News flash it's
MY body. #thankstho

Well, just last night Chrissy took to Instagram, thanking everyone who had been supporting her:
Remember that time folks got rowdy because I wore a dress? The outpouring of love and support from all of you lovely people has not gone unnoticed. I hope that in some small way an unconventional body wearing an unconventional material opened up discussion, hearts and minds. I truly had no idea it would make anyone feel uncomfortable, I just wanted to try something different. All I'm saying, is do YOU, Boo! Wear what you want, love you love and treat people the way you want to be treated❤️ Now that's out of the way, congratulations to all the winners at the @MTV movie and tv awards, especially our boys @miloanthonyventimiglia and @lonniechavis for winning best tear jerker scene from @nbcthisisus! ???? Lastly, thank you to the amazing humans who make this all possible! Dress @janedoelatex Styled @jordan_grossman Makeup @makeupbymotoko Hair @davidgardnerla CC: @creativeprinc #nothingbutlove
