"So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my 'tiny tits,' or how I should be embarrassed by being so 'flat chested.' I've lived in my body for a long time. I'm fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it."

Pugh then quipped, "What's more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts?"

The star concluded her epic rant by adding, "Grow up. Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect humans. Life will get a whole lot easier, I promise. And all because of two cute little nipples…."

Pugh's classy yet fiery clapback was praised by her colleagues who applauded her bravery in the comments section.

"Ok this is what I been sayingggg," Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza commented while Ariana DeBose wrote, "RESPECT. Period."
