TV meteorologist bullied by some viewers about her body. Then she responded to them
CBS Philadelphia meteorologist Katie Fehlinger shared a message for all her haters and bullies. She thinks pregnant belly shaming must stop.
According to American Web Media, the TV personality has been working while pleasantly pregnant with twin daughters.
Fehlinger has been getting a lot of attention due to he pregnancy, but not every comment is an uplifting one, and she couldn't take it anymore.
Since her pregnant belly started to "pop," mean-spirited people sent insulting comments and emails to the TV star, with some of them saying she's 'disgusting.'
Due to this, Fehlinger took it to her Facebook account and made an incredible response, trying also to lift many women's spirit, telling them they're all beautiful.
'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.
'So this little manifesto of sorts is dedicated to every mother out there – other pregnant moms-to-be, moms reading this while their toddlers play on the swing set, moms whose kids have long since gone off to college…
'You are beautiful.
'Even during the most uncomfortable – and let’s face it, less than glamorous – symptoms of pregnancy, what women go through to bring their precious children into the world is, simply put, AMAZING and you should be lauded.
'Frankly, I don’t care how ‘terrible’ or ‘inappropriate’ anyone thinks I look. I will gladly gain 50 pounds & suffer sleepless, uncomfortable nights if it means upping my chances to deliver 2 healthy baby girls. Now it’s about more than aesthetics. I want these babies to have the best start possible. And that hopefully means my belly that ‘looks like it’s about to explode!’ will continue to grow the next few weeks.
'I say let’s raise a Shirley Temple to swollen feet, stretch marks, nausea, all the extra pounds and the dark circles! They’re badges of motherhood. And for those of you who think that’s ‘disgusting,’ remember a woman went through the very same thing to bring YOU into the world.
'In the meantime, let’s all remember the lesson Mom taught us – if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.'
The meteorologist felt the need to fire back this time, trying to defend all the mothers across the world who could be the target of critics like herself. She has since taken the post down.
