Tia Mowry wants every to know, for the last time, that she’s not pregnant. She’s just happy. So please stop asking if her weight gain is from a pregnancy and not food.
Recently Mowry appeared on Huff Post Live to talk about body shaming and the comments she’s received on Instagram. The comments that she’s tired of.
“I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show. … I’m just enjoying life and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am,” Mowry told host Nancy Redd. “But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate. …We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect … why can’t we just be us?”
“We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful,” she said. “And I’m talking about in magazines, advertisement[s] in regard to what’s sexy and what’s not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other. I think if we start there, we’ll see a difference.”
Mowry, who is a far stretch from being ‘overweight’, has been under a barrage of comments on Instagram with people asking why she’s gained weight and if she’s actually pregnant with her second child.
It’s amazing that people are not only rude, but also showing how bad they make it seem for women to gain weight.
