Tia Mowry Calls Out Body-Shamer Who Said She Was "Getting Fat"

Tia Mowry doesn't take too kindly to strangers criticizing her body.

One woman learned that the hard way after commenting on an Instagram photo of Mowry that the former Sister, Sister star was "getting fat." Mowry responded by devoting a separate Instagram post naming and shaming the woman and copying in her employer.

Here's the photo that garnered the unsolicited body comment.

And here's Mowry's response.


"I don't normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point," the cooking show host wrote. "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?

Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop," she continued. "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! I'm standing up for the people that like to hide behind computers cyber-bullying calling many gay, skinny, slut, ugly, fat, the list goes on and on. Cyber-bullying needs to stop!"

The woman has since deleted her profile. HBCU Travelers, meanwhile, has shared a post clarifying that she was a supporter, not an employee. They added that they were "saddened" by her negative comment.
