At this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards, Linsey Godfrey (Sarah, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet, and she was happy to show off her gorgeous dress and handsome beau Breckin Meyer in various photos on Instagram. However, she ended up taking some of them down because of the rude, insensitive comments that were made which upset her. So the actress, who previously starred as Caroline on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, shared one of the photos again with a special message for those particular “fans.”
“Apparently my abs made a bunch of [jerks] question if I’m pregnant,” she shared, using much less polite language in her caption on the photo below. “So, dear rude Instagram users, [screw] you! Those are my ab muscles. Sometimes abs lay flat, sometimes they stick out, the other lines to the side are my hip bones. Asking a woman if she’s pregnant, which I am definitely not, is beyond rude and honestly stupid. The lighting in this pic isn’t the best, but I loved these photos of me and the love of my life sharing in a special moment together, but I ended up taking them down because of the [awful] comments and how people made me feel.”
Godfrey is speaking out in the hopes of making people confront why they feel comfortable saying things to people online that they would never actually say to their face. “When you make rude comments on people’s appearances, you do damage,” she declared. “I’m in a healthy place in my life with a healthy body. This is how my body is shaped and I feel great, so I don’t know what inspires people to be the absolute worst when making comments, but here we are. I only mention it because I’m not the only person people do this to, but I will be someone that speaks out against it.”
The actress had some support from fellow daytime stars, such as B&B’s Annika Noelle (Hope), who assured her: “You looked absolutely breathtaking. Don’t let other people’s unhappiness steal your shine. I adore you and you were gorgeous.” Also, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Laura Wright (Carly) chimed in to add: “Yes! You are beautiful and sexy as hell!”
So maybe think twice before posting that comment on social media and consider how it will make the person feel when they read it. And for more on your favorite DAYS stars, keep reading Soaps In Depth magazine.
