A 21-year-old girl took to social media to defend her boyfriend after Reddit users fat shamed him.
It all started after Ashley Stevens caught the bouquet at a wedding and posed for a photo with her boyfriend, Christoper Reed, according to the Huffington Post.
From there, a friend posted the photo to Reddit where users made terrible comments about Reed’s appearance.
Some Reddit users commented asking if her boyfriend has Down syndrome and others said he was too fat to be her boyfriend.
In her classy response on Facebook, she explained how she actually won the boyfriend jackpot.
And as of those rude comments, this is how I feel about them. 😊😊😊😊😊 pic.twitter.com/LfL3A90Uw9

In the post she says:
“If you have seen the comments on our photo that went viral, they are pretty shallow and rude, I would advise you not to look at them. I surprises me how many people are so quick to judge when they don’t even know you. Well let me just tell you, I won the jackpot with Christopher. He may not have rock hard abs like the world tells girls to want in a guy, but really, why does that even matter when you are trying to really find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with? He is so thoughtful and patient, he always shows me how he loves me in little ways, he is my best friend. I love him for who he is and he loves me for who I am. Understanding, loving, and hilarious, which is so rare to find these days!! Since I was young, (like many other little girls) I dreamed about who I would end up with, once I gave my life to Christ and saw examples of Godly marriages and relationships, I wanted that. God saw the desires of my heart and gave me Christopher. He brings me closer to God through prayer, and his love. I know God will use us both for awesome things because we make a great team! So as of us and those rude comments, we know the truth and we will block out the haters. … enjoy our picture though. Lol.”
After Stevens wrote that post, she and her boyfriend started a public Facebook page to highlight the incident and show all the haters “what love is.”
So far the page has more than 1,000 likes.
