Ruby Rose lives a healthy, fit lifestyle, and she's not about to let body shamers tell her otherwise or drag her down.

So when they descended upon a (gorgeous) photo of Rose at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show and claimed she looked "anorexic" and "too skinny," she clapped back. But she didn't do it for herself, she did it for any fans and followers who might be concerned for her health or shamed themselves by the comments.

The Orange Is the New Black and John Wick 2 actress posted her response on her Instagram story, so it expired the next day—but, fortunately, it was captured by a fan account:


On the original post, plenty of comments were supportive, pointing out that people come in all shapes and sizes and that being skinny doesn't mean being unhealthy.

And at the end of the day, it's really just no one's business how Rose decides to live her life, or how her body looks. Check out the original post to bask in her beauty, and read both sides of the comments:
