Jason Ritter steps forward to defend wife Melanie Lynskie
American actor Jason Morgan Ritter recently took to Twitter to step up for his wife. The 41 year old Emmy Award nominee shared a sarcastic statement in support of his wife Melanie Lynskey and we 100% appreciate his effort.
The Joan of Arcadia actor fired back at the people who had unsolicited comments on other people’s body. He furthermore asked the haters to write those unwanted comments on their own foreheads and dive directly into the sun.
If anyone has any further unsolicited comments about *anybody* else’s body, they can feel free to write them in permanent ink onto their own foreheads and swan dive directly into the sun https://t.co/5UyaHmR4JS

Lynskey is receiving a lot of negative comments on her body
Since the premiere of Yellowjackets in November, the actress received tons of negative feedback about her body. Lynskey tried to shoot down those haters, saying how apalling those comments are. She added that these haters are making unsolicited comments under the disguise of caring about her health and well-being.
The story of my life since Yellowjackets premiered. Most egregious are the “I care about her health!!” people…bitch you don’t see me on my Peleton! You don’t see me running through the park with my child. Skinny does not always equal healthy https://t.co/W2poMmsv1p

The Heavenly Creatures star further explained that those haters don’t see her on her Peloton or when she’s running around with her child in the park. “Skinny does not always equal healthy”- Lynskey added in conclusion to her Twitter post.
This isn’t the first time Melanie faced body shaming
Previously, Melanie revealed how she faced body shaming by a member of the hit Showtime series’ producton team. She said that they criticized her body shape during filming and we can only imagine what she must have felt.
In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this month, the New Zealand actress recounted how the team was suggesting her time and again to get a trainer.
Lynskey also commented that co-stars Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis and Tawny Cypress supported her in this issue. The trio wrote a letter to the producers standing up for her.
Melanie expressed in a 2016 interview how she was undergoing eating issues and was so unhappy with her body. She furthermore expressed her desire to become genuinely comfortable in her own skin.
Ritter and Lynskey tied the knot in 2020 and they share a 3-year-old daughter.
