Tia Mowry is once again speaking up about the effects of body-shaming, and the "Sister Sister" alum makes it clear she won't be tolerating it in any form. Tia previously shared her painful experience with online trolls in that regard.

Tia, 41, is no stranger to body-shaming comments from insensitive social media users. She once opened up about thriving despite the negativity and in a recent appearance on the "Tamron Hall Show," the actress shared some more.

"I really feel that it's a shame that people just tend to bully women – I call it bullying – especially after they've brought a beautiful child into this world," Tia said. The subject is familiar to Tamron Hall herself, who welcomed her first child at 48 last April.

Tia, who also shares an eight-year-old son with Cory, revealed in an Instagram post that she was called "fat" during and after her pregnancy

"Women are vulnerable after they have their baby," Tia continued, noting how many new mothers have to deal with hormonal changes, postpartum depression, and even sleep deprivation while being hounded by insensitive folks about their weight.

The "Family Reunion" star added:

"I think I'm so passionate about it because I understand what bullying does to the psyche. There are children out there that are committing suicide because of words, and so, you know, I have no time for it [body-shaming]. Ain't nobody got time for that."

When Tamron shared a candid experience of how challenging and near-impossible it is to achieve a balance between being a mom and a career woman, Tia chimed in: "It's okay to not be perfect… It's not easy being a mom."

Per the YBF, Tia also discussed the importance of women embracing and practicing self-care, something she credits as the motivation for her food supplement line. "I want women to meditate on this statement: 'that self-care isn't selfish,'" she reportedly stressed.

Back in October, Tia opened up for the first time about how she'd been able to ignore body-shamers and lose pregnancy weight at her own pace. The actress and her husband, Cory Hardrict, welcomed their second child, Cairo, in May 2018.

Tia, who also shares an eight-year-old son with Cory, revealed in an Instagram post that she was called "fat" during and after her pregnancy with Cairo. "Why do we do this to each other?" the mom-of-two asked.

Nevertheless, Tia said she did not give in to external pressure and lost the weight at her own pace. "Many women feel the need to #snapback right away after they deliver. That was never the goal for me," she declared.

It's been almost four months since that inspiring Instagram post, and Tia continues to take a stand against body-shaming while reminding women that taking care of themselves and going at their preferred pace is very much allowed.
