If you're thinking about body shaming Tia Mowry online, you better think twice. After a stranger commented on one of her Instagram photos that she was "getting fat," Tia fired back, posting a screenshot of the rude comment and addressing the body shamer directly.
"I don't normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point," she wrote yesterday. "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?"
"This is not just about me getting called fat. This isn't just about me. I could care less," she continued. "I'm 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!"
The user who left the rude comment later deleted their Instagram account, while @hbcutravelers reached out to Tia to assure them that the user who left the comment has no affiliation with their organization.
Prior to receiving the body-shaming comment, Tia posted an announcement on her Instagram page, stating that she's taking a stand and no longer retouching any of her photos.
"I want all of us woman and men to embrace, love, and accept our REAL bodies at whatever stage we are in life," she wrote. "We all have different shapes and sizes. Let's encourage and uplift!"
