In case you hadn’t noticed, Florence Pugh and Zac Braff are dating and they’ve been dealing with a fair amount of backlash online due to their 21-year age difference. Florence has shut down trolls before, but apparently the reaction to her latest picture of Zac was so mean spirited that she had to turn off comments completely.
On top of that, Florence hit Instagram on Wednesday night to post a video asking followers to stop their “hateful” behavior or to unfollow her, saying “70 percent of the comments [were] hurling abuse and being horrid [….] I’m 24-years-old. I have been working since I was 17-years-old. I have been earning money since I was 17-years-old. I became an adult when I was 18-years-old and I started paying taxes when I was 18-years-old.”
“I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love, and I would never in my life ever, ever tell someone who they can and cannot love,” she continued. “It is not your place. It has nothing to do with you.”
In true Flo fashion, wearing spot stickers and all. To those of you that this video applies to- please listen. Please learn. Being hateful is not trendy.

The Little Women actress also added “The abuse that you throw at him is abuse that you’re throwing at me, and I don’t want those followers… I don’t want that on my page. It’s embarrassing, it’s sad and I don’t know when cyber bullying became trendy.”
Ugh, let’s hope the people writing these comments come through and do better.
