While Anderson did receive mostly inspiring and encouraging comments, the negative overshadowed the good for her. A slew of internet trolls wrote comments calling the photos fake, asking where her extra skin was, why her hair was different, why her phone was different...basically doubting Anderson for ridiculous reasons.
Anderson was fed up by the negative comment, so a few days later, she posted this Instagram:
While we think both versions of Anderson's Instagrams are beautiful, the more important issue is our society's strange obsession with internet body shaming.
Let people tweet, Instagram, and post all the 'selfies' they want — the beautiful thing about the internet is with one simple click you can "unfollow," no harm done.

In January 2014, comedian Jay Mohr, 42, called attention to Alyssa Milano's post-baby figure.
"It seems like she had a baby," he said on the radio. "I don't really give a s--t ... I read it on her gut."
Milano acknowledged that the comments hurt her and expressed her thoughts on body shaming as a whole.
"I think it's an interesting statement about where we are socially that people feel that they can sort of rip a woman's body apart after having a baby," she told Mario Lopez. "I don't think it's fair."

We thought Pink, 35, looked beautiful in a plunging black dress at an event last week, but negative comments about her weight still surfaced online.
"I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight," she tweeted. "You're referring to the pictures of me from last night's cancer benefit that I attended to support my dear friend Dr. Maggie DiNome."
"She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you," she continued. "While I admit that the dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful."
There you have it!
