Amber Riley isn’t going to take it anymore.

The Glee star took to Instagram after undergoing dental surgery, and gave a painkiller-fueled speech against her body shamers.

“You know, there are just some things that my sober mind keeps me from sharing. That ends tonight. I’ve got some things I need to get off of my chest,” Riley, 30, says in a video.

“Why does me being fat offend so many people? Is it because I’m confident, and I’m fly, and I’m sexy? Do my thighs, offend? Does my stomach, offend? Does my big juicy a–, offend? Why? Why!?”

“Let my big a– live! I let y’all live! I love all colors, shapes and sizes. So, just so you know, when you come on here, and you call me fat, it’s not an insult, dummy. My a– is fat. And the fellas love it. And so do I. So eat it.”

Riley’s Instagram and Twitter mentions were filled with praise for her confident, pro-body love stance, including one from her former co-star Naya Rivera.

“Get it giiiirrrrlll,” Rivera commented.

And Riley says Rivera even checked up on her as she continued to post hilarious videos throughout the night.

“@NayaRivera lol I love you!,” Riley tweeted. “Called to make sure I knew what I was doing, such a good mommy. Good talk tho. See u soon.”

After her night of body positivity, as the painkillers wore off, Riley decided to take a pledge of silence, per her sister’s orders.

“I’m baaaaack lol afternoon everyone! What an adventure we went on last night I’m silent Susie today,” she tweeted. “My mouth is so sore and Ashley threatened my life if I didn’t shut up today sooooo I’m gonna be quiet. But because I want to, not because I’m scared or anything. I’m gonna go enjoy this shake! I hope you guys have an awesome day.”
