Here's a Vanderpump Rule: stop the shame.
On the heels of the show's season five premiere, star Jax Taylor took to social media to issue a warning to anyone following his accounts—and he wasn't concerned about mincing words.
"Negative comments about myself or the cast I don't care, you have no life and are looking for attention BUT...bullying, body shaming will not be tolerated I will block you and blast your comments and have your account shut down, my friends work at Instagram and are huge fans of our show, so please.... TRY ME!!! You have been warned," he penned on his Instagram account.
Taylor didn't take his words lightly. He added an additional warning in his Instagram bio reading "All negative comments will be deleted and you will be blocked." In a second photo with his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, all comments were also disabled.
Body shaming has been a hot button topic for the cast in the last 24 hours after co-stars Lala Kent and James Kennedy insulted Katie Maloney and asked her if she was pregnant. Maloney responded to the comments on social media, tweeting, "Come in hurling insults unprovoked and run away crying. Give me a BREAK!!! #pumprules."
One fan chimed in, writing, "Being called fat isn't fun Why is anyone mad at @MusicKillsKate for being upset and defending herself? She handled it better than I would've." Katie agreed.
"Thank u for saying that. I was bewildered beyond myself," she tweeted. "First why did L&J say that shit & y couldn't I respond accordingly?"
