This Woman Was Bullied At A Wedding Because Guests Thought Her Dress Was ‘Too Sexy’
Guests slapped her ass and spilled beer on her.
Fashion is what you buy. Style is how you wear it.
Those immortal words prove one thing: that both style and fashion are all about choice. Ultimately, though trends may come and go, what you choose to wear is entirely up to you and it’s nobody’s business to tell you that what you’re wearing is somehow ‘wrong’.
Unfortunately, one woman copping judgement for her outfit choice is Liz Krueger, a fitness instructor from New Zealand, who was bullied for wearing a dress that was deemed ‘too sexy’ to a wedding.
If only I knew that choosing this dress for a wedding on a 90 degree day meant so many women would be outrightly rude to me, and even come up behind me slap my ass as I’m standing alone. As quote ” it was a dare from her friends, bc I was a target.” And then proceed to spill a full beer down my arm?????? Just one of maaaaany acts of kindness of the night! Yup. That happened. Good thing for thick skin, being able to laugh at things and not take it personally, and good friends/hubby by my side ???? #adultsarebullystoo Regardless, we had one heck of s fun night and no “grown” women’s comments/glares could bring me down as a wedding guest:)
In an Instagram post, Liz revealed that she was targeted by other guests for her choice of outfit.
She writes: “If only I knew that choosing this dress for a wedding on a 90 degree day meant so many women would be outrightly rude to me, and even come up behind me slap my ass as I’m standing alone. As quote “it was a dare from friends, bc I was a target.” And then proceed to spill a full beer down my arm.”
Liz describes the behaviour sarcastically as “Just one of many acts of kindness on the night,” but reveals that thanks to her thick skin and being able to “not take it personally” she was still able to enjoy her night.
As a result of that nasty experience, she’s since started her own Kindness campaign that encourages women to do nice things for each other. (You can get involved using the hashtag #KruegerKindness, FYI.)
Handling the hate with confidence and turning a negative into a positive? We admire you, gurl.
