Girl Has Perfect Response To Bullies Fat Shaming Her Boyfriend

It all started off as an innocent photo when Ashley Stevens caught the bouquet at her cousin's wedding.

Joined by her boyfriend and parents, the group posed for what they thought would be a hilarious snap shot as partner, Christopher Reed, looked on horrified in the background.

But when her friend shared the pic on Reddit, things turned nasty.

The comments were brutal as people commented on his weight and replied it looked like he had Down syndrome.

But at the end of the day it was Stevens who got the last word in - and didn't she make the most of it!

Taking to Facebook, the 21-year-old came to the defense of her boyfriend following claims he was punching above his weight.

"If you have seen the comments on our photo that went viral, they are pretty shallow and rude, I would advise you not to look at them," she wrote.

"It surprises me how many people are so quick to judge when they don't even know you. Well let me just tell you, I won the jackpot with Christopher. He may not have rock hard abs like the world tells girls to want in a guy, but really, why does that even matter when you are trying to really find someone to spend the rest of your life with?

"He is so thoughtful and patient, he always shows me how he loves me in little ways, he is my best friend. I love him for who he is and he loves me for who I am. Understanding, loving, and hilarious, which is so rare to find these days!!

"Since I was young, (like many other little girls) I dreamed about who I would end up with, once I gave my life to Christ and saw examples of Godly marriages and relationships, I wanted that. God saw the desires of my heart and blessed me with Christopher. He brings me closer to God through prayer, and his love. I know God will use us both for awesome things because we make a great team!

"So as of us and those rude comments, we know the truth and we will block out the haters. Enjoy our picture though. Lol"

Here's hoping the haters take note.

Our first date, to last year, to this year. :)
