Uche Jombo’s Body Shamers, the Shame is on You!

by Uche Onegeria 11 Apr , 2016  

There are so many Hollywood ideals that we have embraced but one that I will FIRMLY stand against is BODY SHAMING new mothers for their post-pregnancy bodies. And to make matters worse, the perpetrators of these petty behaviours are usually women.

I just take one look at people who compare Human A to Human B and I do not have any respect for them. To me, their minds are so small, even the Hubble telescope would not be able to find them from 1 inch away. Yes! I do not have any patience for “Who is the fairest of them all?”

If I react like that to beauty comparisons, you can bet that body shaming makes me want to just unplug some people from the internet FOREVER (if I can).
Uche Jombo is a beautiful woman. She just had a baby, you follow her on instagram and you have this sick, twisted physique in your mind for her. Do you not see that is your own problem, not hers? If you get sleepless nights over her weight, then something is wrong with your head. Go back to a shrink and get the loose screws in your head fixed properly.
I will keep saying this, “If you do not have anything nice to say, please do not talk”.
Seriously, you need to know how stupid you sound. You want to tell a grown woman how to live her life? The fact that you follow her on Instagram does not give you the right to tear her down. Anyone in this century that loses her post baby weight, good for her. It is between the lady and her husband (probably only her business even).
When did this stupid “lose baby weight” craze start? Our mothers just had their babies and went about their business. 
This is not the first time that Uche has been body shamed. However, fellow actress, Chioma Akpotha, jumped in to put the online trolls in their place.
She wrote,

“Hello Everyone. I’m a bit emotional now but I’d try hard to drive my point home. I took my last post down just like I did another one a few days back all because of the bashing you all come to drop on my page for Uche.

Uche is this, Uche is that. “Ha! Is that Uche? I thought that was a panda” . “Uche take it easy o!, diabetes is around the corner” . “Uche, marriage has dragged you down.” And it goes on and on and on…. Why if I may ask do you sit behind your laptops and your phones and throw demeaning words at your fellow human being? And to think most of these hateful comments come from women who I think are full of bitterness themselves because it is out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, in this case the hands type.

Who died and made you Uche’s watchman? Did Uche tell you she doesn’t have a mirror in her house? Did she tell she doesn’t know her dress size has changed? Did she by any chance tell you Kenny is complaining? Did she beg you for money to buy slimming tea and she pocketed the money and bought chocolates instead? Did you give Uche money to hit the gym but instead she pocketed the money and chose to sit at home and watch movies with bowls of caramel coated popcorn and a jumbo size soda?

Do you know how many pregnancies she lost before #BabyMatthew came? Did you know whilst we were on set for #WivesOnStrike Uche was over 4mths gone with a baby she eventually lost? And that was not the only one? Do you then begin to think of the process her body has been through all these years? Do you all not just want to be human or you just feel better when you put the other down? #PullThemDownSyndrome

What if @uchejombo were to be your sister, aunt or some sort of relative, would you throw these kinds of comments her way? @okolimaureen @ckelzofficial ? Let Uche be! She was never a #Darego She has never been a slim person. Different strokes for different folks.

The way lady A’s body reacts to the process of child bearing is different from that of lady B. Life is too difficult as it is already why make it worse for the other person? To what gain? #LetUcheBe! Stop wasting ur time typing hateful comments #BeProductive go see #WivesOnStrike 1❤️”

Na wa ooh! Now that you got this explanations, are you now satisfied? Shame on you (like 10 times more)

I feel like before you body shame another person, you should show us your own pictures, all your family members’ pictures, and even if everyone is skinny, I will still send you back to mind your frigging business.

If someone calls another person a slut, then we all need to know what their vagina mileage reading is (if ever there was something like that). Hypocrites!

I am glad that not all women are that way. Whew!! To the beautiful souls who would NEVER put down other human beings, let alone another woman who is dealing with a lot of shi** in her life to take on body image issue from the world. Bless your darling heart.

To the rest, be nice or pack up and go Home!

End of Rant!

Uche Jombo is a Queen in her own rights. By societal standards, she has it all: husband, kid, rich, popular etc.
At the beginning of April, she had told her body shamers “Worry about important things like fuel”
but the body shamers continue…..trolling her.
