Christina Applegate’s life changed in 2021. On social networks, the actress, particularly known for her role in, Kelly Bundy in the series Married, two children, revealed that she had an illness. “Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis,” she wrote, explaining that it was for her “a very strange journey that began”. “But I get a lot of support from people who have the same condition. It’s a tough road but as we all know it doesn’t stop there. Unless some asshole blocks it,” added Christina Applegate. Since her announcement, the actress has been much more discreet, but she still wanted to walk the Critics Choice Awards red carpet on January 16 with her 11-year-old daughter.
The day after this great evening, Christina Applegate spoke on social networks to respond to her detractors. “Well, I made the unfortunate decision to look at some comments on a People magazine article about me and my kids at the CCA. Of course, I told him that wasn’t nice. That was his response. Qu what’s wrong with people. By the way, I laughed,” she captioned a screenshot. On this one, we discover the odious message of a surfer who sent him: “Multiple sclerosis did not make you look like that, it was a plastic surgeon who did that. And you are a scammer and you’re not (Christina) Applegate. And besides, he’s a bad plastic surgeon.” A very unpleasant comment to which the actress therefore decided to respond with humor.
