Amanda Seyfried tries to argue for women and realistic body images.
But as she learned on the internet on Thursday, it is not as easy as it seems.
The 33-year-old actress went to Instagram to apologize for having the & # 39; dun shame & # 39; 32-year-old Blogger Arielle Charnas.
Whoops! Amanda Seyfried took Instagram to apologize for the downfall of 32-year-old Blogger Arielle Charnas online
The day before, Seyfried had gone to Instagram to post a comment that a & # 39; very smart friend & # 39; had left on a post on Charnas and called on her to glorify & # 39; an unhealthy body image & # 39 ;.
The post in question is from Charnas showing off her extremely slender figure in a small green bikini, with the caption & # 39; Proud of my body after two children. & # 39;
Charnas, who runs Something Navy, a lifestyle and clothing brand, posted the photo to its 1.2 million followers on Tuesday and the response was mixed.
Many of her followers praised the position and encouraged the mother because of her & # 39; stunning & # 39; appearance.

Deaf deaf: a number of Charnas followers agreed with Seyfried
Frankly, it's feasible: but others were less than impressed and called the blogger for her & # 39; unrealistic & # 39; message
But others, including Seyfrieds & # 39; friend & # 39 ;, were less than impressed and called on the blogger for & # 39; to perpetuate the (totally unrealistic) idea that mothers after childbirth & # 39; should bounce back & # 39 ;, which according to them & # 39; an impossibility was for anyone who cannot afford ample childcare (which almost everyone in this country is). & # 39;
Seyfried, who gave birth to her daughter Nina in 2017, screenshot of the response and posted it on her Instagram after Charnas removed it, and wrote that she felt Charnas should take responsibility for the message she sent.
& # 39; We must be open to discussions about what we promote. We need to support ourselves – not run away from the problems it offers us, & wrote the Mamma Mia star in her caption.
She continued with a photo with the text & # 39; Influence = Strength & # 39 ;. And if you use it – empower. & # 39;

Double whammy: Amanda continued with a photo with the text & # 39; Influence = Power & # 39 ;. And if you use it – empower & # 39;
And the backlash did not go unnoticed by Charnas, who later recorded her Instagram stories to remedy the criticism.
& # 39; Why am I being bullied because I have posted in a bathing suit? & # 39; she asked followers and added: “I should be punished because I am skinny and have worked hard to be fit after the birth of two children? I am not responsible for making people feel good about themselves. & # 39;
And as for Seyfried & # 39; s advice to be & # 39; open to discussions & # 39 ;, Charnas said she has no time for & # 39; attack (s) & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I am healthy and proud of who I am and the body that I have. If you attack me because I am on my own page, you will be blocked, I have no time for that, & Charnas continued.
No one has had time: and regarding Seyfried & # 39; s advice on & # 39; being open to discussions & # 39 ;, Charnas said she has no time for & # 39; attack (s) & # 39;
Her post elaborated on the idea that Charnas was only able to reach her body because of the time she needed to go to the gym thanks to her nanny.
& # 39; It also has nothing to do with my body and random women to tell me to call the nanny & # 39; s for my figure and my & # 39; excessive workouts & # 39; is actually disgusting, & # 39; she wrote.
& # 39; So sad that women who are so unhappy just feel the need to constantly portray other women if they only preach female support. It is BS and I am sick of it. & # 39;
And on Thursday, Seyfried seemed to have heard and understood the side of Charnas after some back and forth.
Nannies get no honor: the bloggers post further explored the idea that Charnas was only able to reach her body because of the time she had to go to the gym thanks to her nannies
She took over her social media again to apologize by focusing her post on: & # 39; Anyone who feels bullied or embarrassed during our recent discussion on social media. & # 39;
& # 39; If you know me or are familiar with one of my beliefs or views, you will recognize that it is not in my character to break someone down because of & # 39; are who they are & # 39 ;. … As I am very aware, there is a price tag for the group of people who are standing with a platform to stand on. You must be aware of the message you are sending and be able to make a backup when dealing with criticism (not just praise). Be responsible instead of using the above conditions, & wrote the Mean Girls actress.
She went on to say that she regretted the negativity that Charnas had endured because of her call-out.
& # 39; The only thing I take back is exactly how I started this debate. I very much wish that not one person was targeted (or blasted) (there are MANY people involved in this questionable reporting) and instead started a cleaner, general conversation. Nobody has to tear anyone apart. And I regret that it is now present. To the lady in question: I am sorry for the really negative feeling that you have endured. & # 39;
Sorry! The Mean Girls actress again took over her social media to apologize and set up her post at: & # 39; Anyone who feels bullied or shameless during our recent social media discussion & # 39;
