Actress Lauren London was prompted to remind her 3.2 million Instagram followers on Tuesday that she remains self-loving and unbothered despite criticism of her baby weight.
Last year, the 32-year-old managed to keep an entire pregnancy under wraps until September, when she announced via Instagram that she’d recently given birth to her second son.
Since then, public appearances have been rare for London. So when she stepped out for a Lakers game with boyfriend and rapper Nipsey Hussle on Monday, a few trolls took notice, and London became a trending topic on Twitter as people criticized her post-baby weight.
While most of Twitter defended London, she still took the time to eloquently respond to the hateration in an IG post Tuesday.
“I’ve been getting compliments on my looks for years,” she wrote on Instagram. “I never let it ‘gas me’ because I knew the enduring value in all things is internal. When I decided to have my son, I knew the Internet would be cruel.”
“I knew that my body would change, but I did not let the fear of these things effect me to the point of going against my spirit,” London continued. “This lil weight will get worked off and who I am will be uncompromised. Win-win, no?”
What made the clapback even better was that she ended the post by referring to herself as “LL The Great.”
Go awf, LL.
