Two days before her biggest career moment, Mean Girls star Reneé Rapp was publicly shamed.

Unfortunately, there are still loud people who won’t stop talking about her body. 

She confirmed that two days before the recording of her interview with Busy Philipps, and just before the Mean Girls movie premiere, which was one of her biggest career moments to date, Rapp deleted her Twitter (X) account because she saw another comment about her weight. 

Listen to the author of this article recap Renee Rapp’s interviews on The Spill Podcast. Post continues below. 

It’s upsetting to know that the brutal trolling of Reneé Rapp’s body started when she was just 19 years old and has clung to her like a parasite for the last five years of her career. 

The narrative around her weight has also pulled focus from the incredible job she’s done as Regina George. Her portrayal of the character is as good as Rachel McAdams was in the original film, in my honest opinion. 

It’s frustrating to see how there are still people in this day and age who choose to rage about something that has clearly had a dangerous impact on a person’s mental and physical health and could potentially drive them to cut their career short. Just as they’re supposed to be reaching their peak. 

Mean Girls is in cinemas now.
