Kaley Cuoco isn’t shy about being on Instagram, and is quick to scold fans who overstep boundaries and make inappropriate comments.
She’s once again having to call out her own followers for crossing the line.
This time, it’s after they saw a photo of her and had the audacity to accuse her of being pregnant. She is not.
There’s a half-joking expression: don’t ask if a woman is pregnant until you see the baby’s head crown. it applies here.
“Love in Lugano,” Kaley Cuoco captioned this sweet photo of her kissing her husband, Karl Cook.
In the photo, the fabric of her outfit falls forward loosely.
(Because it is not skin-tight because she’s not some kind of ninja assassin and, even if she were, she’s on her honeymoon)
Some of her fans, apparently unfamiliar with how fabric works, decided that this was evidence of a big ol’ baby bump.
“When’s the baby due??” asked one commenter.
“Are you hiding a baby bump?!?!” another accused.
This left Kaley Cuoco, who unfortunately saw this response from her so-called fans, with two uncomfortable chores.
One, she had to deny being pregnant, which zero women enjoy doing.
Two, she had to explain to them that cloth sometimes moves when the human body moves.
“I’m so sorry I bent over in a way to where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this,” Kaley wrote on Instagram.
That apology is extremely sarcastic, in case you missed it.
“Question,” Kaley then asks. “Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?”
Unfortunately, Kaley has had to deal with this kind of rudeness before.
“So, because I’m in traffic I thought I’d take this time to comment on some Instagram trolls,” Kaley told her fans in October.
“I posted a picture this morning of my sister and I from an event last night,” she said. “And people said I looked pregnant.”
And, not that it matters, but Kaley is incredibly dedicated to her fitness routine — even when she’s recovering from surgery.
Even in October, she asked these rude-ass commenters the same question she asked this week.
“Would you ever walk up to someone on the street or at an event where they’re obviously dressed up and say, ‘Are you pregnant?'” she demanded to know.
You hopefully would not, as that is extremely rude to the point of body-shaming.
Wonder all that you like — baby bump speculation is part of the fun of being a fan, for some. But don’t ask.
“It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that,” Kaley remarked.
“I’m not pregnant,” she concluded. “I guess it was a pregnant angle? Seriously, shut up!”
