According to a report from Page Six, the Mean Girls alum, Amanda Seyfried, recently chose to apologize after she was accused of “thin-shaming” amid her Instagram feud with Arielle Charnas.
Today, on Friday, Amanda said sorry for saying that Charnas was perpetuating an unattainable body goal, where she quoted the name of a classic song from the Swedish pop group, ABBA.
The 33-year-old Mean Girls star took to her social media to post a Robert Frost quote, in which it stated that education is the ability for one to listen to anything without getting upset or having it ruin one’s sense of self-esteem or self-worth. The star went on to write a very well-thought-out apology letter.
Seyfriend said she was sorry to those she may have offended, however, she didn’t identify the 32-year-old blogger directly. Amanda, additionally, said her message is not to tear other women down, but instead, to empower women to make the best choices for themselves.
This past Wednesday, claims a report from Page Six, Amanda criticized Charnas for posting a photo of herself in which the caption said, “proud of my body after two kids.” Seyfried accused Charnas of making other women feel bad about the way their body looks after having children.
In another post on Wednesday, Seyfried, who is the mother of a 2-year-old girl, insinuated that when one has influence and the ability to take advantage of it, there is a possibility to empower others. As most know, the body positivity movement has become increasingly popular in the last few years, with many celebrities, females especially, endorsing the ethos.
Perhaps one of the most well-known advocates is Jameela Jamil, who frequently calls out the Kardashians for potentially misleading fans about how they obtained the bodies they have.
In a post from the past, Jamil accused Khloe Kardashian of marketing products of questionable value to women, moreover, products that aren’t FDA-approved either.
In response, Khloe actually addressed this claim indirectly, although, she said in an interview with The New York Times that she is more than honest about how hard she works out.
