What A Way To Start The New Year!

What A Way To Start The New Year!

It had been a big year for actress, model, and writer Porsche Thomas; getting married and becoming pregnant. The start of 2017 was set to be even more special as she prepared to give birth to twins. She made a handful of Instagram posts in reference to the pregnancy, but there was one which garnered a little more attention that the others....

See The Problem? Me Neither.

See The Problem? Me Neither.

Porsche posted this cute pic of her laying in the sun with her baby bump proudly on display. How could this possibly offend anyone, and what business is it of theirs anyway? These are valid questions that many have been asking in response to some of the flak she's copped.

And let's not mask it; it's downright racist.

Too Black?

Too Black?

We're going to spare you the hateful trolling stuff in the interests of not giving them what they want but we're sure you can use your imagination. One Instagram user said her photo was "nasty" while another demanded to know why her stomach was "so black".

One even suggested that her bump was "too black"! What does that even mean?

Getting Even Blacker

Getting Even Blacker

Porsche responded with class by posting this image with the caption;

"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."

She Wasn't Surprised

"We don’t really get to see Black baby bumps and when we [do], people have a negative reaction to it, for some reason, like it’s vulgar," she said during an interview with BET.

"So I think that when I posted that and the response happened, I wasn’t totally surprised because I have seen that response, but not in this magnitude."
