Social media trolls go after Miranda Lambert

You just can’t win these days. When country singer Miranda Lambert, 32, posted a picture of herself and main squeeze Anderson East, 28, at Thursday’s 50th Annual CMA Awards on Instagram, she was surprised to get hit with a torrent of critical comment. Online trolls contended the couple, who look a little awkward in the proud tradition of the staged snapshot, appeared miserable and are probably on the rocks. Some also laid in to East’s tuxedo and his just-a-little-short trousers. In a subsequent posting, Lambert denounced “cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments.”
