Instant Mom star Tia Mowry took a little time out of her busy schedule to address some of the hateful Instagram comments she’s received about her weight. While most celebs let snide remarks about their appearance slide, this isn’t the first time Mowry addressed criticism about her body.
Back in December the Sister Sister actress told fans she wasn’t preggo, “just happy,” after being asked about her weight gain one too many times. Though she looks beautiful, Mowry attributed her 10-pound weight gain to her cooking show and enjoying life. While she said she wanted to drop the extra pounds, Mowry was in no rush and used the moment to advocate for more size acceptance.
“We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful,” she said at the time.
Apparently, not everyone was listening to Mowry’s body positive wisdom. After sharing a picture of herself in a gorg flowery dress in New York City, a few rude folks decided to call her fat.
This time, Mowry wasn’t having it.
I don't normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point. I just posted a few days ago about embracing and uplifting others about body image. Here, @miekk_ felt the need to say I was getting fat. I took a look at your profile and I was sad to see that you WORK for YOUNG African American girls aiding in their studies. I hope this isn't what you would tell your girls? Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMAN? @hbcutravelers Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop. Would you say this to my face? Is this how you speak to yourself when YOU look at yourself in the mirror. Again, I'm shining a light on this issue hoping to see change. Love and uplift! This is not just about me getting called fat. This isn't just about me. I could care less! Im standing up for the people that like to hide behind computers cyber bulling calling many gay, skinny, slut, ugly, fat, the list goes on and on. Cyber bullying needs to stop!
