Florence Pugh Addressed People Leaving "Horrid" Comments About Zach Braff

"The abuse you throw at him is abuse you throw at me."

If you follow Florence Pugh on Instagram, then you know she's all about sharing goofy selfies of herself...

...cooking delicious meals...

...and bringing nothing but good vibes to our social timelines.

But when internet trolls try to interrupt those good vibes, the Little Women star has no problem calling them out, especially when that negativity is directed at people she cares about.

The two began dating quietly last year after working together on his film In The Time It Takes to Get There.

She actually fired back at someone when she shared this photo back in December. After Zach responded to her post with a queen emoji...

...his comment was met with a slick comment about his age.

To which the then 23-year-old responded:

But it didn't stop there. The distasteful comments about the Scrubs star continued to pour in on Monday when Florence celebrated Zach's 45th birthday.

Shortly after posting, Florence was forced to disable the comments. Today, she revealed the excessive amount of rude things people were saying was the reason behind her decision.

"Within about eight minutes of the photo being posted, I had about 70% of the comments hurling abuse, being horrid, and basically bullying someone on my page."

"I will not allow that behavior on my page. I'm not about that. It makes me upset. It makes me sad."

"I'm 24 years old. I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love. It is not your place and really it has nothing to do with you."

"If those rules are something you do not like, then please unfollow me. The abuse you throw at him is abuse you throw at me, and I don't want those followers."

She even questioned when "cyberbullying became trendy." Florence made sure to reiterate her stance on unfollowing her if they didn't like what they saw on her page.

Florence concluded her message by letting the world know she plans on posting more photos of Zach, so she hopes her followers act accordingly, because she won't tolerate the slander. AND THAT'S THAT ON THAT!
