Women everywhere know what it’s like to be made fun of for their bodies. No matter how you look, bullies are always able to find something wrong with your appearance.

We’re always too skinny or too fat or too muscular. No matter what you do to your body, it’s impossible to win.

Although it’s always reprehensible when people say rude things about women’s bodies, it’s even worse when they say horrible things about pregnant women. Carrying a child is hard enough without people making disparaging comments about a mother’s changing figure.

Porsche Thomas knows exactly how it feels to be bullied online. The actress, writer, and model was pregnant with twins in December when she decided to spend some time by the pool.

While there, she shared a photo of herself in a bikini, but people immediately started making inappropriate comments, telling Porsche her belly was “nasty” and making cruel remarks about the color of her skin.

Luckily, Porsche knew exactly how to respond to the “nasty” comments.

On December 29, 2016, Porsche Thomas shared the above photo of herself lounging at the pool.

She wrote, “Getting down to the wire. Only about two weeks left for me and these boys before they make their debut. Crazy excited and totally nervous. What a way to start 2017.”

At 35 weeks pregnant with twins, most people would agree that Porsche looks amazing and deserves nothing but kudos for growing two whole people.

Some internet trolls, though, started making rude comments about Porsche’s body.

One person called her “nasty,” and another asked why her belly was “so black.”

Porsche wasn’t shocked at these attacks on her body and her race, but she knew she needed to respond.

A few days later, Porsche shared this photo, writing:

While some of y’all been in my comments criticizing the blackness that is my belly and me during what shoulda been your holiday cheer, I been over here enjoying life, growing tiny humans, performing miracles and hopefully getting even blacker.

Once Porsche responded to the bullies, people immediately came to her defense, expressing how much they liked her statement and how incredible they thought she was.

Another person commented, “I saw this pic going around with lots of negative comments and had to come find it and tell you how beautiful you are… congratulations on your handsome boys too.”
