Chrissy Metz has so much love for her fans.

The This Is Us star took to Instagram on Wednesday to thank her supporters for all the love they sent her way after she was harshly criticized for the ensemble she wore to the MTV Movie & TV Awards last weekend.

"Remember that time folks got rowdy because I wore a dress? The outpouring of love and support from all of you lovely people has not gone unnoticed," Metz wrote. "I hope that in some small way an unconventional body wearing an unconventional material opened up discussion, hearts and minds."

"I truly had no idea it would make anyone feel uncomfortable, I just wanted to try something different," she continued. "All I'm saying, is do YOU, Boo! Wear what you want, love [your] love and treat people the way you want to be treated."

She concluded her post by congratulating all of the night's winners, including her co-stars, Milo Ventimiglia and Lonnie Chavis, who won the Tearjerker Award for their infamous push-up scene on the popular NBC series.
