A runner has responded to a man’s body-shaming comments in the best way - by quite literally sticking her middle finger up to him.
Michelle Kirk, from Florida, was out jogging when a man rudely told her that she needed to get a better sports bra because her breasts were “sagging”. He then went on to say they would “sag even more” if she continued to run.
Kirk, who was understandably taken aback and hurt by the comments, went home and posted a sassy selfie of her sticking her middle finger up to let off some steam.
Addressing her Facebook post to the “nasty old man”, the 28-year-old wrote: “I will NEVER stop doing what I love and I love myself way to much to have your hate bring me down!”
Her full Facebook post reads: “To the nasty old man who stopped me mid run to inform me that I need to get a better sports bra because my boobs are sagging and will only sag more if I continue to run...fuck you.
“You are the reason why women have insecurities.
“If you don’t like the way my boobs ‘sag’ when I run, then don’t look!”
Kirk, who is currently training for the New York City marathon in November, continued: “I will NEVER stop doing what I love and I love myself way too much to have your hate bring me down!”
Many of her friends and family members praised the mum-of-one for her positive response, which has since gone viral.
Kate Robertson wrote: “You’re beautiful the way you are best friend. Don’t let some asshat bring you down. Love the attitude! Love you!”
While Ujala Ahmed added: “You’re a badass mama, keep doing you! 💪🏽💪🏽”
We couldn’t agree more.
