After Pugh hit out at the criticism on Instagram, the Bridgerton star shared her post on his Instagram Story and wrote: “Read the caption. Take a look at yourself fellas."
He added: “Then take a look at your mates and step up when it’s time to step up. When the boys are out of line, have a word.
"The weird thing about misogyny is men actually listen to other men, so do your bit, cos the next few years in particular are gonna be a really good time to listen, and take some responsibility, for everyone’s sake.”

Pugh fiercely hit back at the negative comments she received for wearing the dress. She wrote on social media: “It isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time a woman will hear what’s wrong with her body by a crowd of strangers, what’s worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be.”
She also said it was "interesting" to see “just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see”.
The Little Women actor also addressed the comments focussed on her breasts: “So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny tits’, or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested’."
She concluded by saying: “I’ve lived in my body for a long time. I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it. What’s more concerning is…. Why are you so scared of breasts? Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none? What. Is. So. Terrifying.”
Various other people from the entertainment industry also defended Pugh including Eternals star Gemma Chan and Jameela Jamil.
