Mallory King, 25, is a fitness trainer based in Florida. Throughout her weight-loss journey, during which she had a baby and shed a total of 80 pounds, she has Instagrammed many photos of herself wearing very little clothing to track her personal progress. Mallory also uses her snaps to encourage others to reach their own goals, whether it's weight loss or self-acceptance.
While Mallory's followers generally shower her with encouragement and compliments, a few months ago, a commenter dropped a bomb that just didn't sit well with her: "It was something like, 'Ewww, work on that cellulite,'" she says, although the comment has since been removed.
Not willing to let the unsolicited critique bring her down, Mallory responded by posting the side-by-side photo below. On the left, she poses happily with her husband, Thomas. ("He's loved me at 220 pounds, 120 pounds, and every single stage in between," she says.) On the right, she poses with her booty and the backs of her thighs on display to prove that when it comes to her cellulite, the only thing she's working on is lovin' it:

Her caption: "To that guy who made a negative comment about my cellulite yesterday. There are so many worse things in life than cellulite, like your shitty attitude. Let people do whatever the fuck they want and look however they please and post whatever makes them happy. Find a hobby and worry about ya damn self."
While Mallory's clapback might make you want to stand up and applaud, since that
