Don't mess with Erin Napier, y'all!
The Home Town star is very protective of her husband Ben Napier and their adorable daughter, Helen. In the past, Erin has not hesitated to defend her family on social media—and now she's a pro at shutting down haters.
Recently, the proud mom and wife decided to get ahead of online bullying by sharing a lengthy message with her followers. Erin explained that Instagram is her "cozy place" and she uses it as "a photo journal" to connect with fans and catalog important moments. She went on to say that her page is not a place to "be mean" and vowed to block anyone who is "cruel or critical."
This powerful post comes just a month after Erin stood up to a commenter who criticized her home, proving she won't tolerate this negativity.
Read her full message below.
HEY let’s have a chat about social media. I think it’s time to work through some things. Instagram is my cozy place. A photo journal of the moments I don’t mind sharing because maybe it will make someone feel like there are other people like them in the world, or maybe it will give you courage to be distinctly YOU in a world that values perfection over personal. It’s a place to show our work, or sometimes it’s just because I want to remember a moment and this is a simple and concise way to catalog moments. What this isn’t: a place for people I don’t know to come and air their grievances (this isn’t Festivus) or be mean or critical. If you are thinking to yourself “well it feels good to say my peace, warts and all!” go ahead and tap that unfollow button. People who feel that way have nothing in common with me and you’re not going to fit in here. I get to say who participates in what I share and if someone is cruel or critical, I block them. I guard my heart. I recommend you do the same, so we clean up this cozy photo journal we’re all trying to enjoy.
It's like mom always said: "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it!"
