Miranda Lambert Fires Back At Negative Fans On Social Media

By: Greg Sacidor

Miranda Lambert is not holding back!

After a number of negative comments were left on a picture she posted of her and her boyfriend Anderson East, Miranda Lambert took to social media to call out those who left these comments. “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” Lambert wrote.

“Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative. Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language.”

The “Vice” singer wrote her message alongside a picture of her in yoga pants and without makeup on her beloved horse Leiani.

Lambert called her post “very personal.” She made it clear she did not share the photo to promote anyone or anything. “This is one of those moments that I’m proud of. My friend Tommy snapped it on a trail ride on his phone at golden hour on the farm in TN” she wrote.

Every now and then I decide to re-join the world of social media and post something really personal. Not promoting anyone or anything. Not selling a better version of myself to anyone or trying to look cool like we all do all the time. Just a picture that either I or someone I know and care about took the time to take and see the beauty in. This is one of those moments that im proud of. My friend Tommy snapped it on a trail ride on his phone at golden hour on the farm in TN. What a blessing. I'm wearing yoga pants and no makeup and im on the back of my beloved Leiani. A Gypsy Vanner horse. 💗. But… 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. Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative. Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language. What a bunch of bull shit. 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. And one last thing….. "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." Maya Angelou
