Kate Upton hit back over what she called “degrading and disrespectful” comments after she spoke out against a call that denied the Houston Astros a home run Wednesday night.

“So if a player is IN the stands fans are suppose [d] to move over? If those are the rules MLB shouldn’t let fans sit there. They didn’t reach over the fence. @MLB,” the 26-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model wrote on Twitter. (RELATED: 15 Things You Didn’t Know About Kate Upton [SLIDESHOW])

After a flood of responses, the swimsuit model and wife of Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, hit back at people for calling her names like “princess” and “honey.”

“I feel the need to acknowledge and address the amount of people who have called me ‘princess,’ ‘honey’ or a terrible ‘girl’ sports fan. Just because I have an opinion on the call doesn’t give you the right to be degrading and disrespectful because I’m a woman,” Upton tweeted.

The call that got all the attention happened during the first inning of the Houston Astros-Boston Red Sox ALCS game 4 matchup. Second baseman Jose Altuve was denied a two-run homer after Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts was unable to catch the ball because a fan in the stands appeared to interfere.
