Apparently, no matter what you post on the internet - people will always have something to say.

Take Robbie Tripp for example, who posted a tribute to his wife on Instagram professing his love for her and her curves.

|| I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat." Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie. For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc. Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room. Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated. There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah. || photo cred: @kaileehjudd

And while most of us might view this as a glorifying post, some criticized it. And accused Robbie of objectifying his wife.

Robbie and Sarah Tripp joined Morning Dose on Monday, via-Skype. Robbie said he just wanted to celebrate his wife, as he always does.

"It wasn't anything out of the ordinary but yeah, this was the one that just happened to go viral. and the reception has been amazing for the most part," he said.

And they both had a message to those slamming the the post.

"I'm a body - positive fashion blogger. So those are the things that I myself talk a lot about. And I'm not ashamed of them, and I do label myself as curvy and as those descriptions," Sarah Tripp said.

" At the end of the day, if you're hating on this post then you're hating on love - because that's all it was," Robbie said.

Social media is supposed to be a place to connect, but sometimes it's more of a battlefield.
