Score one for Katie Thurston. Score none for online trolls.
On July 29, the "Bachelorette" posted a sexy lingerie image to Instagram, captioning it with nothing more than a heart emoji. In the snap, Katie donned a lacy black bra and matching underwear while laying on top of a bed.
The image send hearts racing to the vast majority of her followers, but not everyone seemed pleased (or rather, they did not accept this
"Really, why do you feel like this is appropriate? Save this for your husband not the whole world," one laptop warrior said. Katie noticed the comment and fired back.
"Are you talking about my torso? Should I also avoid swimming pools and beaches?" she asked, according to Page Six. She added, "I'm not ashamed of my body. I celebrate it."
Another troll brought up Katie's deeply personal reveal on "Bachelorette" this season in which described being sexually assaulted a decade ago.
"Imagine crying about being sexually assaulted and you post this," someone wrote, followed by laughing emojis.
"Your comment is saying that my body caused the sexual assault instead of the [sic] placing blame on the person who actually committed the act," Katie retorted. "And this is what's wrong with our society. Did my body cause him to forget what consent means?"
The haters were certainly in the minority, as most fans lauded the reality TV star. The picture was called "jaw dropping," and "fire" by Bachelor Nation diehards. Several people noted that Kate's picture inspired them to workout. One joked, "Slowly puts lid back on the Pringles container."
Perhaps the most accurate comment came via a play on Katie's last name, as one follower called her "KATIE THURSTTRAP."
