Model and bikini designer Emily Ratajkowski slammed online trolls who body shamed her friend Caitlin King in a bikini picture.

She posted a picture on Instagram of herself and King on a beach where both were wearing bikinis from Ratajkowski’s swimwear line Inamorata. The picture showed both women lying on their stomachs at a beach and was captioned, “Beach buns.”

Soon after the picture was shared, several people commented on it alleging Ratajkowski of subjecting her friend to body shamers.

One of them wrote, “Disappointed you would even post it knowing very well the type of comments that would arise. Your friend doesn’t deserve that and you should have been more thoughtful.”

Another person said, “Why would she subject her friend to this humiliation and online bullying by posting this?” while yet another user wrote, “You specifically posted a photo so that it was clear your body is better than the body of your friend.”

Some left inappropriate comments on the picture and even called King “obese” and made several comparisons of their bodies.

“My dream body on the right, my real body on the left. Gotta appreciate both,” a user wrote while another one said Ratajkowski's body looked hotter. “Curves? Those are not curves. She is obese,” one person commented, agreeing with the user, another user commented, “All body sizes are beautiful, but body fat isn’t.”

Eventually tired of all the negativity and obscene comments, the model decided to shut down all the trolls by replying to a comment on the picture. “I love my friend’s body and both her and I think she looks great here. And I’m proud she’s rocking my suits. All these haters are crazy. Just because you’re used to seeing one body type on the internet doesn’t mean that that’s the only kind that should be considered ‘beautiful’” she wrote Tuesday.

She also posted a similar statement on her Instagram story, calling the picture “very cute”. She said “different bodies are beautiful.”

Since Ratajkowski posted the comment, several followers expressed their love for both the women.

“It’s sad that people feel the need to comment on someone else’s appearance,” one person wrote, while another wrote, “It’s two girls on the beach with different but still beautiful bodies.”

A fan wrote, “I’m so glad to see a real body in one of your suits.” A person with the Instagram handle said she believed the picture was uploaded as a “social experiment” and said that people were “failing so badly.”

King also took to Instagram to talk about the absurdity of followers trying to pin the two friends against each other and also of trying to project an unhealthy body image. “I love myself and love [Ratajkowski’s] suits and love myself in the suits that’s all that matters,” she wrote.
