@michaelbuble Did you ask her permission to post that? Would you say what you hashtagged to her face?— Samantha (@samanthadjb) April 14, 2015
@michaelbuble You made sure to get her permission first before posting, right? And that she's not a minor? Way to keep it classy.— Tara Smith (@JunctionMess) April 14, 2015
@michaelbuble This is disgraceful! You should be ashamed of yourself. Nothing worthy in body shaming! You lost a lot of respect from many— Kelly Bradley (@klynnbelle) April 14, 2015
