Mommy shaming is never cool, but even celebrities aren’t safe from fans and followers who swear they know more about raising their kids than they do. These stars had no problem shutting folks down.
The model and author caught flack online for going out to dinner when her daughter was a week old, for posting unsmiling pictures of her child and anything else folks decided to worry about. But she remains unbothered.

A so-called fan was extra worried when they saw that Halle didn’t post full images of her children, writing, “What’s with the hiding of the faces? They’re beautiful children why not show them off?” Berry had time in the comments, typing, “I’ve noticed you have said this several times now so let me be clear — I’m not at all ashamed of [my] children. I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children.”
Fans and the press spent an inordinate about of time worrying about Kim’s pregnant body, with some people even suggesting that she used a surrogate for Saint. Per her usual, she took to Instagram to address the issue. “First they said I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it... Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it... SMH! Some days I’m photographed before I eat and look smaller, some days I’ve just eaten and I look bigger. It’s all a part of the process. I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage!”
First they said I'm too skinny so I have to be faking it...Now they say I'm too big so I have to be faking it...SMH! Some days I'm photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I've just eaten & I look bigger. It's all a part of the process. I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone's body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I've learned to love my body at every stage! I'm going to get even bigger & that's beautiful too! I'm blessed to even be pregnant & even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don't have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I'm grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don't affect me! #NoFilter #NoPhotoShop #GoodLighting 😜
When folks criticized the actress for allowing her daughter, Willow, to cut her hair, she penned a “letter to a friend” on Facebook. It reads, in part, “This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don't belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain.”
The model and wife of Ice T was criticized for her parenting choices soon after the birth of her daughter, Chanel.
Some comments really frustrate me at times..some assume since u have money and live in a "celebrity world" that you don't do shit!— Coco (@cocosworld) December 14, 2015
