Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has turned on mommy-shaming trolls, who are making parenthood a nightmare.
The star became a first-time mom earlier this year and she’s sick of all the online negativity aimed at her from those who like to target celebrity mothers for the decisions they make in life.
Emily was heavily criticized for making a big deal of how quickly she bounced back to her pre-baby body after giving birth, and over the weekend, she took to Instagram to compare herself to a young Britney Spears, who was once hammered for driving with her baby son on her lap.
“We are all reflecting back on shaming Britney and calling her a bad mom when she drove with her baby in her lap,” Ratajkowski wrote. “We talk about how we have to ‘do better’ as a culture. Meanwhile my comments are filled (with) awful remarks about how I don’t deserve to be a mom. Shame on you all.
“I don’t care if you hate me or hate celebrity (or just hate women) but it’s incredibly scary to become a parent and nobody deserves to be told by strangers that they’re a s**ty mother.”
British newsman Piers Morgan was among those who took aim at Emily after she posted a photo of herself in a swimsuit with her baby, whose neck was unsupported.
He tweeted: “That’s not how you hold a baby @emrata – and your millions of followers shouldn’t be encouraged to do the same. Happy to give you some tips if you need them.”
His remarks created such a storm that Emily disabled comments on the photograph.
