An Injured Kaley Cuoco Was Criticized For Her Gym Bra, But She Defended Herself In The Best Way
Kaley Cuoco had a wedding she’ll never forget. Mere days after tying the knot with Karl Cook, she had to go to the hospital for shoulder surgery. The good news is that it was reportedly planned in advance, meaning that she didn’t accidentally hurt herself during her honeymoon. But still, Cuoco’s rocking a brace while she recovers, and she found a way to hit the gym even with the brief limitation. So, why are people criticizing her?
Cuoco, known best for her The Big Bang Theory role, posted an Instagram video in which she’s at the gym. In her first video, she was working out without a supportive brace — which her doctor wasn’t too happy about. It makes sense — if you’re going to work out with an injury, you should follow your doctor’s orders and be extra cautious.
In the second set of gym videos, you can see the brace in action. So, it looks like her doctor may very well follow her on Instagram. “When your doc scolds you for not wearing your brace,” she wrote. “Alrighty then guess we’re doin it this way!”
But it wasn’t the brace that got mentioned in her comments. Instead, fans seemed a little too focused on her bra.
As someone who, personally, has thought of every excuse in the book to avoid going to gym (“I can’t find matching socks” being an honest favorite), it’s kind of crazy that the focus wasn’t on Cuoco’s determination. Instead, it’s on her chest. Even though she was wearing a proper gym shirt, fans thought Cuoco could have covered up a little better. One reportedly wrote, “But you could wear a bra!”
Cuoco wasn’t here for the criticism, responding back with, “don’t be jealous […] It’s not flattering.”
She also clarified that due to her injury, she can’t wear certain items of clothing: “I can only get certain bras over my head NOT THAT ITS ANYONES BUSINESS.” But even if Cuoco could change, why should she? She’s covered, she’s working out, and she doesn’t owe anything to anyone. It’s her body, and she’s treating it well.
It seems like a lot of people forgot that if they don’t have anything nice to say, maybe they shouldn’t say anything at all. Kaley Cuoco could have been wearing a paper bag to the gym and her workouts would have still been inspiring.
