    Drop dead.

    That's "Walking Dead" star Alanna Masterson's blunt message to body shamers who harassed the actress after she returned this week from a long absence from the hit AMC show following her pregnancy.

    Masterson's character had been temporarily written out, disguised as a VERY long scavenging mission, to give the actress time away on maternity leave. She returned in Sunday's episode which spotlighted her character and marked her return to the show.

    Most fans were ecstatic at her return. But Masterson said some took time to criticize the change in her appearance since having a baby in November 2015, a daughter named Marlowe.

    "Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it's OK to comment on my weight: I hope that you don't have children. And if you do, I hope you teach them about kindness and acceptance," she wrote. " I hope they learn that it isn't OK to make fun of people or call people names."

    Masterson noted nursing her daughter for the past year in the heat of summer in Georgia while pumping breast milk in a van between took work, determination, and juggling her schedule. "So before you decide to make a comment about my chest being "too large" or how "fat" I've become, just know that this little girl got the best start to life."

    She added, "Your mother should be ashamed for raising such a judgmental bully. I'm sure she knows how "courageous" you must be for trolling and hiding behind your Iphone and computers. P.s. I would LOVE to see any man or woman give birth to a baby, nurse the baby, and then work 17 hour days and NAIL their own stunts."
