Pregnant Mother Faces Major Backlash For Posting This Photo On Social Media (Photos)

An 'Insta-star' who became famous for her interest in fitness on Instagram is now stunned that much of her audience is turning on her. The woman's self-portraits that once drew a big audience and much praise have lately been bringing nothing but backlash and criticism.

Hannah Polites, 24, has more than a million followers on Instagram. The healthy living advocate has always posted photos showing off her trim, tone body. Ever since she announced that she was pregnant, however, her fans have started slamming her for not gaining enough weight.

Polites says she logged in to check her messages, and was shocked by the mean comments that had poured in. Apparently, Polites didn't have a big enough baby bump to satisfy her fans.

“YOU are killing your baby,” said one commenter, summing up the sentiments many seemed to display.

Polities, who sees herself as a positive role model for a healthy lifestyle, couldn't believe it. “It’s truly shocking to read some of the comments regarding my health and that of my unborn baby, especially at a time where women are particularly vulnerable and can be more sensitive to bullying,” she said.

“For the record, doctors have told me bub is healthy," she added, noting that her baby is 20 percent bigger than average at this stage in her pregnancy, despite her low pregnancy weight gain. “My life can be confronting for women because it differs to their own choices, but this is who I am and everyone is welcome to share their own journeys.”
