Sasha Pieterse Slams a Body-Shamer Online: 'This Really Bums Me Out'

Sasha Pieterse lost 37 pounds on Dancing With the Stars this season before her elimination, and took the opportunity to publicly address her weight gain due to PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).

While most of her fans support the Pretty Little Liars actress 100 percent for her strength and honesty, one troll decided to body-shame her instead.

“Goodbye Sasha focus on your weight and your attitude you made me and my daughters uncomfortable,” a user (whose account has been suspended) wrote. “Overweight isn’t attractive ever. #DWTS.”

“This really bums me out,” Sasha responded, “not because you’re exercising your right to have an opinion but because I know how dangerous this mentality can be for young girls. I hope you teach them to love themselves no matter what their physical appearance looks like.”

Mark Ballas, a dancer on the show, also stood up for Sasha.

Sasha U are beautiful,” he wrote. “Jenny UR an asshole & this behavior on social media is unacceptable & your bio says Christian? I’m disgusted.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
