International Women's Day is not a particularly sensitive time to make rude comments on a woman's appearance. OK, so that goes for the other 364 days of the year as well. But on March 8, Summer House cast member Amanda Batula seized on the signficance of the female-power-themed holiday to clap back at a nasty Internet troll.
In her Instagram stories, the graphic designer laid it all out. In red, she circled an incredibly rude comment that someone had left her on social media, saying (oh-so eloquently): "Um no offense but you're not as hot as you think you are." ("No offense?" Really?!) The troll went on to rank Amanda at a "6" looks-wise, and to say that her boyfriend Kyle is a "9," so Amanda should "count her blessings." Ew!
Well, Amanda was not about to take that lying down. "This is the sh-- that I can't stand," she wrote. "I hate seeing it on other women's posts, but saying this to me is not going to slide. Who are we to judge another person SOLEY based on their looks?!?"
She continued, in all caps: "Women should not treat other women this way. Period." Later, Amanda wrote: "Seeing this comment on International Women's Day just really rubbed me the wrong way." Take a look at Amanda's epic clap-back, below:
