After Maren Morris was criticized for wearing a crop top, which some fans deemed too revealing, she fired back on social media and shut down the shaming.

The country star shared a photo of herself wearing a sparkly bandeau with detachable-short jeans from Y/Project while cuddled up with her fiancé, Ryan Hurd. Addressing the haters head-on, she wrote, “Hey, while prudes are bitching about my clothes, let’s make babies. :)”


She expanded on her feelings in a subsequent tweet, saying, “Honestly, I’m over the slut-shaming that goes on here. I’m a self-sufficient woman who loves her body. Get over it, thanks.”

Fans are celebrating Morris’s clapback and giving her the green light for every single one of her styling decisions. “Anytime a woman dares to be successful, confident, herself the insecure and threatened start up with the name calling and body shaming,” wrote fan Trevor Stamp.


The fan continued his defense, adding, “Maren is more than pretty, she’s powerful, accomplished, hard working, outspoken, talented but most of all she’s HERSELF. Sorry if that rocks your outdated social order but deal with it.”



Others jumped in to support Morris’s crusade.





Morris, who has a Country Music Award, an American Music Award, a Radio Disney Music Award, and a Grammy, isn’t the only celebrity to face this kind of treatment. Ariel Winter, consistently chided for her outfit choices, has a similar attitude. “If it’s a little revealing, whatever,” the Modern Family star said. “If people don’t like it, unfollow me. If you’re so offended, why do you look at it? Don’t take the time to hate on me. Just unfollow me and follow someone who covers every part of their body to their toes. I don’t care.”

Kim Kardashian, also a target of social media hate, hit back in a similar way in an impassioned essay recently. “It’s 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming — it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me,” she said. “I am a mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, an entrepreneur and I am allowed to be sexy.”

The overarching message? Let women wear what they want.
