The Internet has created memes for many a celebrity including Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanu Reeves, and Jennifer Lawrence, which can be lighthearted and so amusing that even the celebrity subject approves.
Occasionally the Internet crosses a line in its attempt to find wit by Photoshopping some celebrity image.
Such was the case on Monday when Prison Break star Wentworth Miller found himself the subject of one such meme, which seemed to be more straight-up body-shaming than good-spirited goofing.
Courageously, the actor took to his Facebook account on Monday to pen a frank response to the insensitive meme.
Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme.
The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe.
In a speech the same year, at the Human Rights Campaign Seattle Gala, the actor admitted, “Growing up I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test and t were a thousand ways to fail, a thousand ways to betray yourself, to not live up to someone else’s standards of what was accepted, of what was normal.”
