Whitney Way Thore’s Instagram post about Ashley Baynes featured a selfie of the two with comments from trolls superimposed on top. One person asked if Whitney had “ever done ANYTHING for one of [her] friends in [her] entire life?!!!” and proceeded to call her the “dumbest, ugliest, most selfish and stupid” person on TV. Another one claimed, “All your friends [hate] you and for good reason.” In the post, Whitney emphasized in her post that “this kind of abuse is not okay” and urged her fans to think before they type.
In fact, Ashley responded to Whitney’s post about how the situation unfolded, adding in her own comments about the editing. “Y’all, all of us have been friends for 20 years. Please don’t judge folks on a few minutes of edited content when there have been literal decades of moments that weren’t/aren’t televised,” she wrote.
Needless to say, she also came for the haters. Ashley continued, “PS: @whitneywaythore my fav comment is from the person mad at you for firing me but then says your friends stick around for the money. Which one is iiiit?” It’s clear nothing could come between Whitney and Ashley’s friendship!
