Jenna Dewan Tatum Responds To Mummy Shaming Comments Following Sexy Instagram Picture
Jenna Dewan Tatum found herself the target of some serious mummy shaming recently after posting a rather sexy photo of herself on Instagram.
The 36 year old mum and wife of actor Channing Tatum exposed her perfectly shaped derriere while wearing a revealing black body suit.
The photo, which was captioned simply with Cheeky Balcony Series, prompted many women to leave their disapproving comments about the mum of one. Many said she was setting a bad example for her 4 year old daughter Everly and that there was no need to bare so much skin on social media.
“You look amazing but I don’t get why everyone wants to show their ass all the time for no apparent reason,” one follower wrote. “You young ladies today think you need to post this. You have way to much class to bring it to this level. You’re a classy talented young woman. Be the inner you and love yourself,” another said.
“You leave little to the imagination. #notclassy yeah kinda trashy. She usually isn’t posting this kind of nudie stuff.”
While others took to criticising not just her photo but her lack of judgement as a mother and role model. “Not flattering to you as an intelligent woman. You look great but don’t need to model objectifying your body parts on IG — or teach young girls to garner attention by sexual images of themselves.”
Another wrote, “Of course she is hot but poor Everly. What signals is she sending to her young daughter?”
What signals indeed? Is she letting women know that being a mother doesn’t mean you automatically stop being sexy? That you can continue to be a strong, confident woman as well as a great mother.
Having children doesn’t mean that our ‘sexy ship’ has passed. Women, even if they are mothers, are still sexual beings and it should be celebrated.
Tatum hit back at her critics in a classy way by posting this quote: “You can tell who the strong women are they are the ones you see building up one another up stead of tearing each other down.” Which was the perfect response.
No woman should ever feel bad about wearing something she wants. It’s her God given right and she shouldn’t have to explain herself or feel bad. But what we should feel bad about is when we pass judgment and criticise another just to make ourselves feel better.
