Tia Mowry has a message for her body shamers

Tia Mowry, former star of our fave show Tia & Tamera and now host of cooking show Tia Mowry At Home, went on HuffPost Live yesterday to talk about some recent pregnancy rumors that have been circulating, and how they’re actually a form of body shaming.

She addresses the rumors pretty perfectly, letting us know exactly what matters when it comes to body image and self-esteem:

All this speculation about pregnancy? She has some thoughts on that as well. “But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate,” she explains. “We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect … why can’t we just be us?”

She hasn’t just been a victim of these rumors and this bullying in the media, it’s happening in her social life as well. Specifically, her Instagram, where she’s been getting far too many comments about her weight and looks.

We totally agree with Tia’s sentiments, and hope that in the future we’ll all work hard towards raising each other up, rather than tearing each other down with rumors and online comments.
