New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news when his nipple piercings were visible underneath his t shirt.
former girlfriend Sandra Lee has a message for “body shamers” speculating about his nipples: “Knock it off!”
The governor set the internet on fire Tuesday with wild speculation that he had nipple rings, but his spokesman denied the public servant was into piercing.
Chef and author Lee was with Cuomo for more than a decade before they announced their split last year; however, they have remained good friends.
Calling the speculation about what is under the gov’s shirt “nonsense,” a makeup-free Lee said, “I just want to say body-shaming is not okay — it is never going to be okay when people are out on the front lines working hard for all of our benefits, to then turn around and body-shame.
“Shame on you, knock it off, do something to uplift people and make the world a better place, not take cheap shots that are unnecessary.
“Have a great day and think about that for a little while.”
She and Cuomo confirmed their split last September, saying in a statement, “We have realized that our lives have gone in different directions and our romantic relationship has turned into a deep friendship.”
