Social media is the new battleground. People create controversies and have a word war on this platform. But it is extremely unfortunate when two every established woman take a toll on each other through their comments and posts.
A few days back, influencer Arielle Charnas took to Instagram and posted her bikini picture. The influencer was very boastful of her weight loss and her perfect body in spite of having two kids. That’s when Actress Amanda Seyfried slammed Charnas for spreading a wrong in the society.
Basically, Charnas has a huge following on Instagram, and people quite love her as a lifestyle influencer. But this post made Amanda very angry. Initially one of Amanda’s friend commented on Charnas pic slamming her. Later it got into an ugly spat between the two. That’s when Amanda came into picture. She confronted Charnas and blamed her for showing such a stereotypical mindset.
Amanda has no issue with Charnas’ post. But the way Charnas has kept things hidden is problematic for Amanda. The actress wants Charnas to give correct information about her transformation. The influencer is blessed with a lot of wealth, she maintains her figure by following several diets, but many people get depressed looking at such a picture-perfect body. It is absolutely wrong to say that mothers need to bounce back to being slim after having kids. You can not pass on this message amongst your followers, says Amanda aiming at the influencer.
After this ugly fight, Charnas blocked both the ladies. Then Amanda posted the screenshots of their chats on her insta handle. Though Amanda has a valid point but it is really disgusting to target someone on social media like the way she did.

Fuck it- this is feed material. My very smart friend (again-not tagging) wrote this on a semi-influencer’s feed and she blocked both of us (even though I didn’t tag her-at least she’s getting the message). If we’re ready to get paid for flaunting our lifestyle (and inspiring some in the meantime) we have to be open to the discussions surrounding what we’re promoting. We have to back ourselves up- not run away from the issues it presents. There are gray areas everywhere. Each of us has a chance to back ourselves- especially on this platform. If you know who you are- take a second to decide if what you’re throwing out there is worth it- in the big picture. 👊🏼
Later that night, Amanda posted a pic trying to say that influencers should empower others and that’s exactly what they are meant to do.
