Crossing a Walking Dead star is never a good idea.

Alanna Masterson, who plays zombie fighter Tara Chambler on the show, fought back at body shamers on Instagram who commented about her weight.

“Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it’s ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don’t have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance,” she starts by saying.

Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it's ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don't have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance. I hope they learn that it isn't ok to make fun of people or call people names. I hope one day YOU learn what it takes to be a parent. A kind, selfless parent. A working parent. A parent that puts themselves in someone else's shoes. Maybe you can't get it through your thick fucking skull, but nursing a baby for a year (and pumping in a van between takes, in the dead of summer in Georgia) is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling. So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being "too large" or how "fat" I've become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life. I wouldn't have changed it for a second. I would've gladly continued to eat enough calories to produce milk for her little bones to grow. Also, grow the fuck up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I'm sure she knows how "courageous" you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers. P.s. I would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts. P.s.s. Be kind to each other. We need it now more than ever. ❤️✌🏼️

Masterson says she’s received offensive comments about her size ever since she gave birth to her daughter in Nov. 2015.

“Maybe you can’t get it through your thick f—— skull, but nursing a baby for a year (and pumping in a van between takes, in the dead of summer in Georgia) is a lot of work, determination, and scheduling,” she writes. “So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being ‘too large’ or how ‘fat’ I’ve become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life.”

“Also, grow the f— up. Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I’m sure she knows how ‘courageous’ you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers.”

Masterson quickly returned to working on The Walking Dead after delivering daughter Marlowe, and adds that she “would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts.”

Her post quickly soared to over 100,000 likes, and filled with comments supporting the working mom.

And Masterson isn’t showing any signs of letting the negativity get her down.

An onlooker tells PEOPLE the actress looked “radiant and happy” at the CASPER Christmas party at Pink Taco in West Hollywood on Dec. 9 as she caught up with friends and showed off pictures of her Marlowe, saying her little one “makes life more fun.”
