If the world of blogs who post about celebrities was high school, Dlisted would be smoking the good shit in the parking lot of a Del Taco after skipping detention, which we got for talking shit about everyone and everything, never having a nice thing to say, and being an overall mess. And yes, we’d be a 30-year-old junior. GoFugYourself, on the other hand, would be talking about the popular kids’ outfits while keeping it nice and fair. The fashion blog GFY keeps their critiques directed at the outfits of celebrities, and they don’t comment on bodies (they also check any commenter who doesn’t follow that policy). But yet, out of all the blogs out there, Olivia Munn decided to drag GFY because they didn’t like what she’s wearing in the picture above.
This is the week of famous-types going after blogs for not solely barfing out a stream of positivity about them. Cardi B went after The Shade Room for not posting anything positive about her or other hip-hop artists. Lizzo punched at Pitchfork for giving her album a mixed review. Ariana Grande said that us shit-talking blogs need to find Jesus. And now this Olivia Munn crap. Next up, someone from the second season of Rock of Love will find an old post I wrote about them and drag me in a MySpace post.
Last week, Jessica Morgan, who makes up GFY with Heather Cocks (a perfect name), wrote about Olivia’s outfit in a post titled: If Only I Had a Dollar For Every Time I’ve Said, “Oh My God Olivia Munn”. The post is short, tame, harmless, and keeps the commentary about her outfit. There’s not even a Japanese sweet potato joke, for fuck’s sake.
Olivia wrote a short essay (read: not a short essay), which she posted on Twitter. Olivia started out by saying that she knows criticism comes with her job, but then she went off on GFY for critiquing outfits and thinks they should’ve “woken up” after the #MeToo movement started. Olivia even compared her going up against those meanies at GFY for not liking her outfit (an outfit that she probably borrowed from the designer and may have gotten paid to wear) to high school girls going up against the boys who rate their looks. If you’re wondering what the surface of Pluto feels like, ask Olivia, because that’s how far she reached with this shit.

Jezebel said some critical words about Olivia back in 2010 when she was on The Daily Show and she responded by telling her female critics to “take the sandwich out of her mouth and go for a goddamn fucking walk.” So I’m surprised that Olivia didn’t tell GFY to take the panini out of their mouths and go to pilates.
When Olivia put that hot take up, she probably pulled her hair back into a bun, thinking that the internet was about to crown her the new Queen of Feminism. But it looks like the only title she’s going to get is the Queen of Overreaction, because most of the responses to her tweet are calling her rant out for being misguided and oversensitive. And who knew that one of the side effects of eating lots of Japanese sweet potatoes is that you’ll develop thinner than thinner skin?
