Patrick J. Adams Retaliated To Stranger Body-Shaming Him From Royal Wedding

What's the one thing we expected from the royal wedding? Something we knew was guaranteed even more than Harry and Meghan actually turning up.

That's right, a bit of good ol' scrutiny from the people who are, well, simply perfect. Please forgive anyone who wasn't looking their absolute best. Most of us just watched it in our slobs, but don't judge.

Meghan Markle's on-screen husband, Patrick J. Adams, was the latest victim as he was body-shamed by a stranger who saw his picture from Saturday's nuptials. But instead of ignoring her, he did what his head probably told him not to do.

Patrick, 36, revealed that his royal wedding appearance was called into question by a woman in the airport, who claimed he looked 'chunky' in his morning suit at the ceremony, as reported by the MailOnline.

The Canadian actor, who starred alongside Meghan in Suits, revealed the unnamed woman commented on his weight as she referenced a photo of him at the wedding while he waited for his flight back to the States in Heathrow airport.

Not really what you're expecting in the airport, is it? And probably on a jet-lagged hangover as well. Savage.

Patrick retaliated to the woman's cheeky comments by posting a picture of her sleeping onto Instagram but quickly deleted it, because two wrongs don't make a right.

When he uploaded the snap to his 2.1 million followers, he wrote: "She reads her paper. See's picture of me and Troian from wedding. 'My God. What a terrible photo of you.'

"I look over. 'Really. I kind of like that photo. What do you think is wrong with it?' She pauses. 'Well, you're just so....chunky.' She laughs and falls asleep. And .... scene. #royalwedding".

If you don't hashtag it you weren't there.

The social media post was praised by some fans but others clearly didn't agree. As the saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

One fan commented: "I expect better from you. She's rude and what she did was uncalled for but sometimes you don't have to get even."

While another approved, saying: "So rude! You both looked great! Someone's jealous they didn't get to go."

Adams played fraudulent lawyer Mike Ross in Suits for seven years. He married Meghan's character, paralegal Rachel Zane.

He's now taken to Instagram again about the picture. He wrote: "Yesterday I posted a photo of a woman who did some casual body shaming of my wife and I in the airport.

"My intention was solely to put a face to the people who think that sort of glancing commentary is necessary, helpful or funny.

"Some of the comments on the post instead said I was being a bully and should have taken the 'high road'...

"I thought it over and agreed and took it down, not because I felt the woman was right or fair or undeserving of being called out but because any sense of being a bully or lashing out felt wrong.

"Now a number of familiar outlets with a lot of extra time on their hands are asking for comment and getting ready to publish the post in their hard hitting newspapers, magazines and blogs.

"So I'll comment here. I'm no bully. What that woman said to us was offensive and unnecessary but I should have told her she was rude and out of line and left it at that. I'm sorry I didn't.

"I was too shocked and annoyed and Canadian - so I avoided the confrontation. Again, I'm sorry. Now if you see the original post on any media outlet just know that they are choosing to take a relatively small indiscretion and make it worse.

"Not for me. Because I promise you once I hit post on this message it will be out of my mind forever. But it will make whatever bullying or embarrassment I might have caused for that woman far worse for a far wider audience."

He added: "But let's just finish with a quick summary. 1. Don't talk s**t about the way people look. You have no idea what's going on with them and your commentary will always make their day worse not better.

"2. If someone does. Don't use the internet to settle scores. Tell them right to their face and in public that they're part of the problem and not the solution.

"3. Believe pretty much nothing you read in magazines. Good or bad. The machinery runs on misfortune and oversimplification.

"4. Be cool to yourself and others at every opportunity. Life is too short for all of this. Thx for reading. Now back to our lives..."

Welllll, that's that.
