Chrissy Teigen and Ginger Zee Open Up About 'Mom Shaming': 'It's Really Hard To Take'


Online trolls have bashed many celebrity moms like Chrissy Teigen and Ginger Zee for simply living their lives not long after giving birth.

Zee, a Good Morning America meteorologist, has been a frequent target of haters since she started competing on Dancing with the Stars in March, just months after the birth of her first child, Adrian.

Zee spoke out to Inside Edition about some of the rude remarks directed at her.

“You can tell me I’m ugly and you hate me, I’m like, 'Ok. Thank you.' But when you start attacking how I’m being a mother, I’m already vulnerable to that. I already feel like I don't know if I’m doing this right, so it's a very hard thing to take,” she said Monday from backstage at Dancing with the Stars.

Some of the comments include: “A sorry mess to abandon her baby. Did you ever want to be a mom?”

“You’ve taken away this precious time with your child because you want to dance,” wrote another.

Zee is not alone in being mom-shamed.

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen, 30, was recently targeted after enjoying "date night" with husband John Legend, 37, a week after giving birth to baby Luna.

"I would never leave my baby after a week!” one snarky commenter said.

Another wrote: "Who wants to leave a one week old baby to go to a bar?"

On Good Morning America Tuesday, Michael Strahan asked Teigen about the haters.

“We needed a break, we needed to go and enjoy each other's company,” she said.

Zee spoke up in support of Teigen, saying there's no way the model is doing a bad job as a mom. 

Zee told Inside Edition: “Chrissy Teigen, I’m sure she's doing an amazing job raising her child, come on! We all want to do what's best for our child. That's why it's hard when they come at you.”
