New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Tia Mowry has recently posted a photo on her Instagram account showing her walking in New York City when some followers commented on the shared snap saying that she has gotten fat.

The 37-year-old “Sister Sister” alum has been sparking pregnancy rumors since last year as she has been showcasing a fuller figure. That time, she said that she has gained 10 to 15 pounds because of her Cooking Channel show “Tia Mowry at Home.”

The latest photo of the actress featured her wearing a multi-colored floral Stella McCartney dress. She then called out some followers who called her fat saying that she does not normally respond to comments but she wanted to prove a point.

The actress continued, "I just posted a few days ago about embracing and uplifting others about body image. Here, @miekk_ felt the need to say I was getting fat. I took a look at your profile and I was sad to see that you WORK for YOUNG African American girls aiding in their studies. I hope this isn't what you would tell your girls? Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMAN?"

She called out another follower with the Instagram handle @hbcutravelers . She said that internet bullying is not cool and that it needs to stop. She added “Would you say this to my face? Is this how you speak to yourself when YOU look at yourself in the mirror. Again, I'm shining a light on this issue hoping to see change. Love and uplift!”

The user @miekk_ deleted her Instagram account while HBCU Travelers posted a message on their page saying that they do not encourage bullying. The company said that the lady who she mentioned on her post does not work for their organization but is a supporter of their mission. The company added that the actress is beautiful inside and out. They ended their statement saying: “We will be sure to use this incident to stand out against negativity! Please continue to inspire and uplift others.”

Despite the criticisms against her weight, she has been working out with a personal trainer as per her recent social media posts.
