Miranda Lambert Sends Message to ‘Cowardly’ Instagram Trolls
After posting a "really personal" photo of herself riding her horse, Leiani, the "Mama's Broken Heart" singer blasted fans who criticized a photo she posted showing her with East at the 2016 CMA Awards from the night before (November 2).
"Last night I was all dolled up and 'out on the town' with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville. I was excited about the night and posted a picture," she wrote. "Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative."
Lambert continued, calling out fans -- many of which seem to believe Lambert is still pining over her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, based solely on her body language with East -- who left rude comments after analyzing the photo.
"Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language," she wrote. "What a bunch of bull sh---t. Thank y'all for reminding me why I read books, write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love."
The "Little Red Wagon" singer -- who divorced Shelton last August and confirmed her relationship with East in December -- then ended her post with a quote from Maya Angelou, warning users about the power of words.
"And one last thing....." Lambert wrote, before quoting Angelou: "Words are things. You must be careful, careful about calling people out of their names, using racial pejoratives and sexual pejoratives and all that ignorance. Don’t do that. Some day we’ll be able to measure the power of words. I think they are things. They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally in to you."
