Carrie Underwood will not stand for trolls on the internet.
Recently, Underwood’s friend and trainer Erin Oprea was getting in a workout during her son’s soccer game when a man took her picture and posted it on the web, saying her actions “screams she wants attention.” (See the post below.)
Oprea, responded by reposting the post with the caption “don’t let others bully you!” That’s when Underwood stepped in.
“That man obviously has a big problem…with himself,” Underwood posted. “I only hope he can learn to like himself someday so he can be an adult and stop bullying others for bettering themselves!”
Oprea considers the man’s attitude to be indicative of a large problem, writing on her blog, “This is exactly why many people don’t embrace an active lifestyle in ordinary situations: They are worried that they willdraw attention and, even worse, ridicule. Keeping yourself active and healthy in any way you can should be cheered and admired! I would love to see the day when there are more people running laps around the soccer field than there are people just sitting and watching … I don’t want the choice to be made for them because of bullies.”
Way to go, Erin! Use someone else's negativity to help others. That man obviously has a big problem...with himself. I only hope he can learn to like himself someday so he can be an adult and stop bullying others for bettering themselves!

This guy felt the need to post this pic of my friend and trainer, Erin Oprea, along with some really insecure and mean comments. He was shaming her for getting in some exercise during her son's soccer game. Not cool.
