Bye, haters! Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard went on a clap back spree on Instagram after pregnancy speculation started over her flowy Dolce & Gabbana dress. The reality star took no prisoners as she responded to a few negative comments on November 3.
The Bachelor Nation babe, 33, shared a photo of herself and her husband, Tyler Johnson, on a date night at the opera. She wore a loose-fitting dress covered in a flowered pattern with black sheer detailing on the sleeves and neckline. “Oh, Emily, I’m your biggest fan, you are breathtaking, stunning beautiful … but unless you are pregnant … the dress … hmmm,” one person commented on the loved-up photo with her hubby, 33.
Another person chimed in, “I agree. If she’s pregnant, then a glorious dress. Otherwise, a little too bohemian and ‘mrs roper-is [sic]’ looking.”
Emily was feeling her look that night and had no time for the criticism. “I’ll be sure to let Dolce and Gabbana know that Carol and Lori on Instagram don’t approve,” she snapped back with a thumbs up emoji. “That dress screams ‘I may have an upcoming baby announcement!'” someone else added with prayer hands and a baby face emoji. “You guys make the cutest!!!!!”
Although the commenter tried to make their post a compliment, assuming someone is expecting is never OK. “I actually not pregnant at all, but I appreciate your private detective skills,” Emily quipped in response.
Of course, there were also tons of fans who rallied to support the starlet. “Didn’t think that at all. Just thought beautiful people and beautiful dress!” a user gushed. “I looove what you’re wearing!” someone else noted. Another person echoed, “I’m loving this dress & your husband’s all-black look!”
Even her fellow Bachelor Nation alum Ashley Spivey slammed the trolls. “Wow people are rude as f–k but you’ll always be gorgeous inside and out,” the contestant from Brad Womack‘s season wrote. “Love you, lady,” Emily simply responded with red heart emojis.
The Charlotte native’s eldest daughter, Josephine “Ricki” Riddick Hendrick, is from her previous relationship with her late fiancé, Ricky Hendrick. She also shares three children with her new spouse — Gibson, Jennings and Gatlin.
Although the haters will always be on social media, it looks like Emily can handle herself just fine.
