    Before the kickoff of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month in June, Anna let her followers know that bigotry wouldn't be tolerated on her Instagram.

    But that didn't stop some users from leaving messages that critiqued Anna's sexuality and her marriage.

    In a comment that Anna shared to her Instagram story, one user wrote that they were "tired of seeing 'bi' celebrities constantly advocate for it only to end up conventionally married to men with multiple children, living out the so-called white-picket-fence life."

    In the caption Anna added, "If he doesn’t have a problem with it why should anyone else? #loveislove🌈 #fuckbierasure #bipride💖💜💙"

    Anna previously opened up about being married to a man, explaining that it doesn't mean her bisexuality is "a past tense thing."

    "Are you still straight if you’re with somebody? Doesn’t mean you’re not, if you were to break up with them or you were to die. It doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that," Anna told the late Larry King.

    Well said, Anna!
