Porsha Williams Calls Out ‘Snapback Culture’ ‘I Actually Adore My Lil Marks’
Porsha Williams is not here for the “snapback culture.” She spoke on the pressure of getting her body into tip-top shape just four months after giving birth to her first child.
She shared a photo of her and her daughter, Pilar Jhená on social media, and blasted people who pressure moms to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies. In true Porsha fashion, she said she’s unbothered by the critics. She added that she loves her post-baby body and she’s in no rush to change it, and encouraged other moms to take on the same mentality.
“Moms are badass don’t let anyone tell you different Ps: It’s just weird I actually get this a lot. I think social media has altered people’s perception of what moms look like. A lot of moms tell me how they get under handed compliments or jokes about their weight and it really affects them in a negative way. I just feel like we should be able to bask in motherhood and let our bodies naturally heal and evolve. Like for me I had Pj 4 months ago and I just don’t feel ready to workout. The snap back culture has put pressure on most moms so they end up feeling insecure about what their body is naturally doing and looks like. Ion know call me weird but I actually adore my lil marks and feel like it’s a lil badge of honor as all moms should… I just want to use myself to encourage fellow mommies”
She then responded to a fan who told her she needs to “cover up” until she loses her baby weight.
“This part of the problem! I should cover up at 4 months pospartum at a pool with my baby?? Shame of what… Shoot i had a whole baby and love every roll of love, mark of bravery and miracle stripe on my body! Moms love the new you don’t let anyone shame you into being insecure about your mommy temple that created a little miracle! You’re awesome just the way you!”
Williams and her fiance Dennis McKinley welcomed Pilar on March 22.
Williams also embraced her body while she was pregnant too.
