Due to the recent controversy surrounding the photo of Miranda Lambert and Anderson East, Lambert expressed her response to the criticisms on social media. For Lambert, this time it is personal, and she makes it clear (if it was not clear enough) that the two of them are still together.
It all started when Miranda Lambert attended the 50th Annual CMA Awards with boyfriend Anderson East. She and East made their relationship public a few months prior, during the ACM Awards and they are currently set to celebrate their one year anniversary.
However, their appearance at the CMA Awards was met by negative fan comments, saying that Lambert did not look happy to be there and even looked miserable. It went to the extent where there were comments that criticized East’s appearance as well. Those comments were likely stemming from suspicions that Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have parted ways, however that is not true, and they are still together.
“I was excited about the night and posted a picture. Just now when I looked I realized that so many comments were judgmental and negative…” she stated in a very lengthy caption regarding another photo she shared on her Instagram account of her and East on the red carpet of the award show.
Lambert even called those trolls “cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or cellphone writing useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language…” She also went on to thank them for reminding her why she reads books, writes songs and spends time with her loved ones.
At the same time, East also shared a photo of himself and Lambert on the red carpet on Instagram. It goes without saying that the couple are still together no matter how many hate comments are thrown their way.
Anderson East and Miranda Lambert started dating December of 2015, just five months after Lambert announced her divorce to Blake Shelton.
