Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” stunner Cecily Strong is funny for a living, so she knows how to take a joke – even when those jokes come at her expense. This weekend when a gaggle of internet bullies started making comments about the star’s weight, beginning a thread of completely false pregnancy rumors:
Ever the class act, Strong took the comments in stride:
Oh also, I’m not pregnant. But thanks for inquiring you cruel bully dickheads/the dumbest idiots ever who don’t understand how life works. — Cecily Strong (@cecilybecily) January 26, 2014
Which should have put an end to the entire non-debate, but of course Strong was immediately accused of fishing for compliments, because trolls:
Not fishing, just think it’s barfy how cruel peeps can be about people’s looks. It’s not funny unless Joan rivers writes the joke.
