Olivia Munn is known for her offbeat humor on screen, but she was less than amused when a popular blog poked fun at red-carpet looks. The actor, who recently starred in X-Men: Apocalypse, appeared to be wearing a long, black coat with a fur-lined hood that hung over her shoulders and highlighted her slender frame. However, Go Fug Yourself thought the look was “quite unnecessary”. Olivia Munn published an essay she had written about fame, being in the spotlight, and enduring criticism from the public and the media. She singled out Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan in particular, who is also known as the author of the well-known fashion site Go Fug Yourself. In the post, Olivia argued that websites like Go Fug Yourself exist to “unleash an armory of public digs” and explained her arguments against them.
Her Offbeat Humor on Screen
Olivia Munn is an American actress and model. She is best known for her roles in the films Iron Man 2, Magic Mike, and The Newsroom. She has also appeared in the television series The Newsroom, New Girl, and Archer.
Bloggers accused Munn of being “the worst dressed woman on the planet” after attending a red carpet event at Cannes Film Festival wearing a bright yellow dress with matching shoes.
Go Fug Yourself
Go Fug Yourself, a fashion blog run by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, received backlash from the star when they commented on her outfit at the people’s choice awards. They said that she looked like she was wearing “a potato sack.” The blog is known for its satirical style and has been in period publications such as TIME Magazine and Teen Vogue.
The owners of Go Fug Yourself are both actresses who have worked together before on projects such as The O’Reilly Factor (which was canceled after Fox News fired Bill O’Reilly). They also co-wrote a book called “Suck It Up Buttercup: A Memoir of Sexism, Drugs & Mental Health Issues” about their experiences with mental illness while working in Hollywood during this period and how those experiences helped shape them into who they are today!
The Post Said: “Sometimes, I Wonder if Olivia Munn Even Cares Anymore”
The post was not about her weight. It was not about her face. It was about how she looked on the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards that year. The author of this blog post also wrote an article called “Why You Should Hate Olivia Munn.”
In response to the post, Munn wrote on Instagram: “So I’m in bed early because of a cold and I think it’s a good time to remind everyone that @gofugyourself is the worst. They will never stop making comments that contradict their headline statements about kind words and body shaming.”
Munn showed screenshots from Go Fug Yourselves articles about her appearance at the Golden Globes red carpet (she wore a black gown) as well as an article about how she was not fit for her role as Cat Grant on Supergirl due to her weight gain after pregnancy.
X-Men Apocalypse and at the Critics’ Choice Awards Earlier this Year
Olivia Munn has been critical of the media’s coverage of her work.
She posted screenshots of articles about her appearance in X-Men Apocalypse and at the Critics’ choice awards earlier this year, which she said were “unprofessional” and “not helpful.”
The blog responded to Munn’s post in a piece titled ‘A word about Olivia Munn’. The bloggers said they did not regret what they had written and believed that their article was “legitimate journalism”. They also said that although Munn’s reaction to the post may have been unexpected, she was overreacting because of her own personal own with Go Fug Yourself.
Cocks and Morgan said they did not Regret what they had written
Bloggers who were criticized by Olivia Munn for their appearances at the 2019 Oscars have responded to her comments, saying they do not regret what they wrote.
Cocks and Morgan said they did not regret what they had written and stood by their opinions. They also said they were not body-shaming nor mocking Munn’s appearance.
The blog said: “Olivia is overreacting, which we feel like we can say because she told us so herself; in the comments of her first post, she wrote ‘overreacting is my natural state.”
Munn was not amused when a popular blog poked fun at red carpet-looks.
Munn has been Vocal About Body Shamers on Social Media
In an interview with Seventeen magazine, she spoke about how she was bullied as a child because of her weight and how she found that self-confidence through exercise. She also spoke about the importance of self-confidence for women when it comes to their appearance.
“I think it’s really important for young girls to see strong female role models,” said Munn in the same interview. “You don’t want them thinking that just because you’re healthy or thin doesn’t mean anything.”
We’re not going to say that Olivia Munn is wrong here, but we think it’s important to point out that her response has made a lot of people including us! anxious about body shaming. The world is full of people who try to shame others for their appearance, and it’s hard not to get triggered by these types of comments.
