Earlier this year, Tia Mowry found herself addressing body shaming comments that were hurled at her on Instagram. Users were asking if she was pregnant after she shared a photo to her account. Now, Mowry is finding herself in the same boat, as people continue to comment on her weight. Why are people STILL trying to body shame her, or anyone for that matter?
Mowry, star of the Cooking Channel’s Tia Mowry at Home, found herself doing something a little out of character after she saw one Instagram user comment that she was “getting fat.” Mowrey ended up taking a screen capture of the comment, and then uploaded it to her Instagram account to call out all cyber bullies. The caption Mowrey added explains that it is less about defending herself, and more about sticking up for others who get cyber bullied.
The Instagram account that posted the comment has since been deleted. HBCU Travelers also apologized to Mowrey, and clarified that the user had not worked with the association, she was just a supporter.
Hopefully others will learn from this, and think twice about posting nasty comments on social media. You can read more on the story here.
