Emily Ratajkowski has fired back at a troll who criticised her outfit choice in a recent Instagram video.
The model posted a video on her Instagram page on Wednesday to announce that her fashion brand Inamorata was supporting Alexandria House, a women’s shelter in Los Angeles, by donating underwear, bras, and other items of clothing to help the families affected by a fire at the shelter in March.
While many users took to the comments section to praise Ratajkowski for the initiative, one user chose to criticise her for wearing a sports bra in the video.
“Does your support need to be in a bra? I am confused why people do this. I love women and support women, but we must be careful how we show ourselves so we are taken seriously,” the male user wrote.
The 28-year-old swiftly responded by telling the man that he shouldn’t be telling women what they can and cannot wear.
“‘We’? You’re mansplaining how to be taken seriously and telling me how I should dress,” she replied. “If you want to support women, don’t tell them what to do. Instead encourage women to do whatever they want with their bodies (and that includes wearing whatever they want),” followed by praying hands and a heart emoji.
In her video, the Gone Girl actress told her followers: “On March 19th, they experienced a fire, five families lost everything, luckily, no one was hurt, but they really need donations of basics right now. Inamorata is committed to providing them with bras, underwear, we’re doing dresses, some cute sets, and for every order made on Inamorata.com, we’re going to be adding an additional item.”
She also urged her followers to donate any unused personal items via a link on her Instagram page.
