Yesterday, queen Blake Lively was one of the many celebrities to speak out against Donald Trump‘s impulsive ban on transgender soldiers from the military. While his exact motivations are unclear, one thing is for sure… hate and discrimination will NEVER win.
The 29-year-old personally taught one of her ex-followers that lesson on Thursday after a rude comment inspired her to respond!
The Gossip Girl actress originally posted:
THIS is America. WE the people. ALL THE PEOPLE. Today I stand with our fellow citizens. No human being is a burden. I believe in equality. In freedom. In opportunity. In kindness, acceptance, and fairness. I believe in this country, so I, and many others, sign the petition linked in the bio. Please join..??????A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on Jul 26, 2017 at 8:01pm PDT
Her support of the transgender community disgruntled one of her fans, who commented:
“You catching that unfollow for this.”
Blake — who has 16.6 MILLION followers on Instagram alone — didn’t let it bother her, as she responded with class, saying:
“I choose love. That’s the only thing that we all have. It is peace. It is happiness. Not follows or unfollows. I wish happiness for you. And I hope you find that your heart has a bigger capacity than you give it credit for. I know it does.”
Bless your heart, troll.
