Social media can be a wonderful thing. It has opened up doors for people to feel closer to loved ones and collectively share special moments with each other.
It also has allowed many to get a greater insight into celebrities’ lives who have, for years, been seemingly ‘untouchable’ by the general public.
This, unfortunately, also has a less-than-ideal side. Because of the easy access to others, many pounce on any opportunity to loudly voice opinions, rumors, and hate-filled accusations without regard to the person on the other side of the screen.
Recently, one of television’s most familiar faces has found herself smack-dab in the middle of a rumor war on social media, and to no fault of her own. The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco recently tied the knot with her beloved sweetheart, professional equestrian Karl Cook in July 2018.
From the outside looking in, the two seem to be utterly head-over-heels in love with one another and are thrilled to be doing life together for eternity. Due to Cuoco having shoulder surgery shortly after they wed, their dreamy honeymoon was postponed.
Now, five months later, the two lovebirds are enjoying the time of their life in Switzerland. In typical modern-day fashion, Cuoco made sure to document the occasion by posting an adorable picture of her and Cook leaning toward one another to kiss. She captioned it, “Love in Lugano.”
Never could she have imagined that the one seemingly-innocent image would stir up a swarm of gossip.
Within moments of posting the image, she was hit with numerous questions like, “When’s the baby due?” and “Are you hiding a baby bump?!” Before long, Cuoco had enough. She quickly took a screenshot of the drama and addressed it once and for all. Her words instantly silenced them all.
“I’m so sorry I bent over in a way where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this. Question: Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?” she retorted. OUCH.
While this is never something she could have predicted happening, she didn’t let her true feelings and opinions stop from coming out. She stood up to those who attempted to stir up gossip and rumors and put them in their place once and for all. Hopefully, some will learn it’s better not to assume things such as this no matter how an image looks from the outside.
