This Woman Responded to a Body-Shaming Troll in the Best Way Ever

Annnnd Chipotle.

It's hard to buck up the courage to talk to a pretty girl, but you'd think a guy knows that when trying to flirt it's an absolutely terrible idea to shame her body at the same time.

Unfortunately, a potential suitor attempting to woo Christina Topacio, Marketing Director for BeautyCon LA, didn't get the memo.

A man Christina met online messaged her and began showering her with compliments regarding her intelligence and beauty, only to turn it into the most underhanded compliment of all time (opens in new tab). He ended his spiel by saying you're great and all but, "You need to lose f--king weight. It kills me."

Wait, what?

Talk about being waaaay off base, not to mention cocky. Many of us would immediately respond with a number of choice words that would give a censor a field day, but Christina's response was even better.

Christina told E! News (opens in new tab) that after getting over the shock, she realized a calm and collected response was the only way to fire back. "I hope people realize firstly, it's not okay to say things like this to people," she told them. "Secondly, I hope women feel empowered to stand up for themselves and not allow comments like this to break them, even if it comes from your mom, friend, teacher or partner."

One thing's for sure—we will definitely be sending Chipotle selfies to all the haters now. #BurritoBowls
