Star of “The Boys” outraged by comments about plastic surgery. Erin Moriarty responds to Megyn Kelly and leaves Instagram

Erin Moriarty, known for her role in the series “The Boys,” has announced that she is leaving Instagram after journalist Megyn Kelly accused her of undergoing plastic surgery. The actress called Kelly’s comments false and admitted to being shocked by the internet’s reaction to the whole ordeal.

Megyn Kelly accuses “The Boys” star of plastic surgery addiction.

In one episode of her podcast, Megyn Kelly referred to plastic surgeries as a “social disease,” citing Erin Moriarty as an example, whom, according to the journalist, suffers from an addiction to cosmetic procedures. Kelly also juxtaposed two photos of the actress as “before and after.” In the first, Moriarty, according to the journalist, looks like “a nice, beautiful, natural girl.” In the second – more recent one – she looks decidedly different.

“I thought it was a face generated by AI… But apparently, it’s real. She did it to herself,” Kelly commented.

Erin Moriarty responds to accusations.

“I was horrified when I heard about the disgustingly false, so unproductive, yet ironically misogynistic video by Megyn Kelly, and when I discovered how loud this matter became,” Erin Moriarty wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram.

“The only reason I haven’t deleted my account is that I want to leave this message here,” added the actress. “Communicating through social media hasn’t come easy for me. But I’ve invested energy into it to connect with you. And I am shocked by the reaction, unfair assumptions, and the mentioned video, which is an example of harassment. It broke my heart. You broke my heart.”

“Megyn used a photo she deemed ‘a year old,’ which actually dates back a decade, when I was still underage,” Moriarty explained.

The actress also addressed the “after” photo: “On that day, I had makeup done with strong contouring, and I remember feeling beautiful then. It was a stressful day for me. I went to those girls (for the procedure) in tears after what happened that day and came out feeling better. I felt like they reduced my lack of sleep and enchanted me with their magic wands.”

“You don’t have to believe me when I say this video is absolutely false. But I don’t accept the way this matter is talked about, the way I’m spoken to. I was down, dealing with a personal issue. You never know what someone is going through. Social media is a platform that doesn’t show the whole truth about a person. But regardless, there’s no excuse for the words that were said to me or about me,” Moriarty concluded.
