Well, this is kinda awkward. The Fug Girls, two fashion bloggers who have built their brand on mocking the fashion choices of celebrities, are being called out by one of their targets. Jaime King went off on the bloggers, Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks, in a post on her Instagram, for criticizing an outfit she recently wore. She admits to once being a fan of their popular blog, Go Fug Yourself, but has since changed her mind, claiming that Morgan and Cocks are perpetuating a culture of women shaming other women. "I thought they were cheeky, rad chicks that made jokes but with a wink," she wrote. "Now I realize that not only do they exemplify the unending cycle of women bashing other women, but that they are also the new Perez Hilton of fashion 'bloggers' (before Perez turned it around realizing that words fucking HURT)." 

King, seeming genuinely fed up, didn't stop there. "Maybe when you pulverize us & all that we do, post a picture of yourselves next to it so we at least can see who is verbally assaulting us," she wrote. "Maybe consider there are REAL hearts, REAL people you are hurting. From the designers, interns, the many people that spend weeks sewing each bead, everyone that has had a dream to make pretty clothes & did." You can read her entire message, below.

 

@fuggirls I used to LOVE @hcocks @msmorganzola from #GoFugYourself. I thought they were cheeky, rad chicks that made jokes but with a wink. Now I realize that not only do they exemplify the unending cycle of women bashing other women, but that they are also the new Perez Hilton of fashion "bloggers" (before Perez turned it around realizing that words fucking HURT) I woke up being compared to my friends & peers in a contest of how awful we dress @katemara #rooneymara & @emrata. See pic-the irony is that these guys were just nominated for a CFDA award. No biggie. I once expressed that I was bummed by your commentary & it seems being honest- woman to woman that you're coming guns blazing. Jessica & Heather- I wish you the best, that you weren't exemplifying in such a nasty way a systemic issue of shaming, judging & comparing. This begins for girls from the minute they are born. Just like the kids in school that bullied me for having "weird" style because I had to make my outfits from that which I found at the Goodwill; that "weird" style turned me into something. It's amazing what limited resources can do for your creativity. This isn't some white, privileged chic whining. I guess bullies follow you like a shadow, it is endless. No person deserves it. No person leaves the house thinking "hey, I want to look like shit & can't wait to be judged by the world & a bunch of other women." It doesn't matter if you are going to school, if you work at a bank, if you are a stay at home parent or an actor. We all are doing our best with our own insecurities and lives. Call me the new f-ing Pollyanna - I don't care. Be halfway decent & somewhat nice. Maybe when you pulverize us & all that we do, post a picture of yourselves next to it so we at least can see who is verbally assaulting us. Maybe consider there are REAL hearts, REAL people you are hurting. From the designers, interns, the many people that spend weeks sewing each bead, everyone that has had a dream to make pretty clothes & did. To those that busted their asses to be working actors hoping to entertain humanity in a world filled with pain. Do as you please. Peace be with you.
