Neha Dhupia reacts to article that criticised her post-pregnancy weight gain and it's winning the internet
Like most women, Neha Dhupia has also put on weight post-pregnancy and that hasn't stopped her from sharing pictures of her on social media.
However, a publication recently posted an article with an extremely insensitive headline, fat-shamming the actress and taking a dig at her post-pregnancy weight gain. The 38-year-old actress took to her Twitter account give it back.
She wrote: “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fatshaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit. But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fatshaming needs to stop for EVERYONE and not just celebs. As a new mom, I want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter. So I work out everyday, sometimes twice a day because for me…’Fitness’ is a priority and not ‘fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks. And I hope in the future people are kinder to each other while making such vapid and vile comments. To quote @Pattonoswalt…’Be kind. It’s chaos out there,” – her statement on Twitter read.
Celebrities including Karan Johar and Sonam Kapoor praised Neha Dhupia’s response by retweeting her post.
