Amanda Seyfried called out an Instagram influencer for blocking her and a friend, and it turns out she was referring to Arielle Noa Charnas, who recently posted a bikini photo celebrating her body after having two kids that some found "tone deaf."
On Tuesday, Seyfried posted a screenshot of a comment that her friend, who she chose to keep anonymous, left under an unidentified influencer's photo.
Though Seyfried did not specifically name her friend or the influencer, writer Sophie Flack identified herself as the commenter in an Instagram story, which was captured in screenshots shared by the Daily Mail. Her comment under Charnas' photo matches the one Seyfried posted, and she posted a screenshot to show that Charnas had blocked her.
"If you don't acknowledge how your wealth made your workouts-body possible, you're just perpetuating the patriarchal notion that mothers should 'bounce back' after childbirth," Seyfried's friend wrote, according to the screenshotted comment. "Why not use your platform to encourage more women to be ambitious business women, or say, run for office, or maybe, sheesh I don't know, do something to help the kids literally dying in cages?"
Seyfried wrote in the caption of her post that the 'semi-influencer' had blocked both her and her friend.
She went on to say that "there are gray areas everywhere," and asked the "semi-influencer" to think twice about what she posts on Instagram.
Charnas seemed to take notice of Seyfried's message.
"Why am I being bullied for posting myself in a bathing suit?" Charnas wrote. "I should be punished because I'm working hard to be fit after giving birth to two kids? I'm not responsible for making people feel good about themselves." (Fri 12) Views: 7,562
