Earlier this year, Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco made her feelings about online rumors perfectly clear in a pointed message to "Instagram trolls."

In a video shared on social media, the actress revealed how comments from fans about her "baby bump" at a recent event made her feel.

"I posted a picture this morning of my sister [Briana] and I from an event last night and people said I looked pregnant," Cuoco said.

"Now, would you ever walk up to someone on the street or at an event where they’re obviously dressed up and say, 'Are you pregnant?'" she asked.

"It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that. I’m not pregnant. I guess it was a pregnant angle. Seriously, shut up."

Cuoco isn’t the first celebrity to speak out about comments claiming to spot "baby bumps" on photos of female celebrities. Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff also shut down trolls who bombarded her with questions about whether or not she was pregnant.

Sadly, Cuoco’s social media followers obviously didn’t get the message months ago, because she was forced to confront them again for their thoughtless words this week.

While the newlywed actress should have been enjoying her honeymoon in Europe with her new hubby Karl Cook, Cuoco was forced to quash more pregnancy rumors. This time, a photo of Cuoco in another "pregnant angle" while kissing Cook created all the fuss.

"I'm so sorry I bent over in a way to where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this," Cuoco told her followers. "Question. Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?"

She also shared a photo of the nosy comments on her picture, including, "When's the baby due?" and "Are you hiding a baby bump?!"

As Roloff pointed out while dealing with her own rumors, constantly asking a woman if she’s pregnant is not just rude, it could also be seriously harmful if she was struggling to conceive.

"What if I was a woman who couldn’t get pregnant?" she asked. "What if I was a [woman] who had body image issues?"

"Asking a woman if she’s pregnant can be extremely damaging," she added, since you never know "what’s going on behind closed doors in anyone’s life."

Do you agree it's rude for fans to keep asking Cuoco about this?
