Bullying is a problem that has been around forever and this mother-to-be was one of the victims.

As reported by Jumble Joy, Katie Felinger, a CBS Philly meteorologist, has been body shamed because of her baby bump. But the 43-year-old TV personality didn't let the haters keep her down.

Her critics sent her insulting comments and emails. One even called her a "sausage in casing."

But Felinger, who has contributed to the climate change issues and weather’s effects on sports, has strategies to silence the internet trolls once and for all.

The American meteorologist took to her Facebook account to post her perfect response to the haters.

'I have to get something off my chest. So, the nature of my job makes me an easy target for criticism. I will always understand that, and I will most typically just ignore it,' she wrote.

But when a hater labeled her 'sausage in casing' and another said that 'sticking your pregnant abdomen out like that is disgusting,' Felinger thought that it was the right time to speak up.

'Everyone’s right to their opinion is important, but so are manners. And while rude comments like these will never make me feel the need to change anything about myself, I find a bigger underlying issue here. These particular nasty-grams were directed at a pregnant woman,' she explained.

Felinger then dedicated her message to all the mothers and mothers-to-be. She called them beautiful.

She said that despite the symptoms of pregnancy, women still go through to bring their offsprings into the world which is simply amazing.

Felinger pointed out that she doesn't care what people think about her look. She will be happy gaining pounds if it means upping her chances 'to deliver 2 healthy baby girls.'

She also said that 'swollen feet, stretch marks, nausea, all the extra pounds and the dark circles,' are all badges of motherhood.

For those who think being pregnant is disgusting, then they should always remember their mother who went through the same thing to bring them into the world, she continued.

Felinger concluded that let's all remember the lesson our mother taught us - 'if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.'

Her Facebook post went viral and she received an outpouring of love and support from many people around the world.
