We pity the man who ticked off the woman who sings songs like “Before He Cheats”, “Blown Away”, and “Two Black Cadillacs”. We pity him even more for taking it a step further than messing with Ms. Carrie Underwood herself and going after her friends.
Carrie used social media to stand up to a cyber bully who targeted the singer’s friend and personal trainer, Erin Oprea. The man took a dig at Erin by sharing a photo of her online and making judgmental comments about her exercising during her son’s soccer game.
His post read:
Would it be wrong of me to tell her that every dad at the soccer filed [sic] thinks her standing out front with her jump rope for two hours only screams she wants attention. And I can only imagine what the soccer moms are thinking.”
It would be wrong. It would also be cowardly to go on the Internet to make fun of someone who is mindful of her fitness. Your punishment, unidentified sir? A double dose of female power in the form of anti-bullying proclamations in response to your antics.
Erin shared the screenshot of her back and the post on social media, eloquently editing the photo to include the text “Don’t let others bully you!!” Then, Carrie stepped in, regrammed the picture and added her own choice words for the man who put her friend on unnecessary blast.
carrieunderwood Way to go, Erin! Use someone else’s negativity to help others. That man obviously has a big problem…with himself. I only hope he can learn to like himself someday so he can be an adult and stop bullying others for bettering themselves! Check out the blog erinoprea.com
Ok…I see lots of confused comments…I guess I should explain a bit further. This guy felt the need to post this pic of my friend and trainer, Erin Oprea, along with some really insecure and mean comments. He was shaming her for getting in some exercise during her son’s soccer game. Not cool.
No, not cool at all. What is cool, however, is having your friends’ backs! Kudos to Erin for standing up for herself and drawing attention to the big issue, and high five to Carrie for using her huge platform to create a buzz.
