Back in the day, Christy Carlson Romano was kind of a big deal. She played Ren Stevens, the annoying overachieving sister to Shia LaBeouf in Even Stevens and later Kim Possible, the pointy-boobed teenage spy who made us (mistakenly) believe that cargo pants were cool. These days she plays the role of someone who hates 50 Shades of Grey, also known as the average human with an IQ above 60.
CCR had a bet with her husband that 50 Shades wouldn't top the box office for a second weekend in a row (rookie mistake, Kim). Clearly overestimating the American public, she lost the bet, which resulted in this photo.
She tweeted out the picture accompanied by #content and a YouTube link explaining the message behind it, which is that 50 Shades promotes abusive relationships and diminishes the value of consent, both of which are popular criticisms that we've touched on already on this site. But because most people on Twitter seem to be fundamentally stupid, they saw a picture of a semi naked woman and started screaming slut before they even got to the caption. CCR shut them down and has continued to preach consent since then, garnering support from her literate followers and multiple media sources.
So other than looking hot AF in lingerie, Christy has proved that it is indeed possible for a Disney star to grow up to become a decent human being without hitting rock bottom first. Call her beep her if you want to reach her, but don't talk shit unless you want a smack down worthy of Ren Stevens.
