We love that Tess Holliday never stops speaking her mind!
The pregnant plus-size model is eight months along, and while her second pregnancy is thankfully going smoothly, the haters have come out in full force.

Not one to simply ignore the hostility, the 30-year-old posted an image of her growing belly on Instagram on Tuesday accompanied with a message for the shamers:
"Having another baby has been a beautiful process & at times, frustrating. As I enter my 8th month, my body overall looks the same other than my belly & I'm okay with that. What I've had to be learn to be okay with (WHICH IS NOT COOL) is the fact that people still think it's okay to comment on my body: "you don't look pregnant", "you must be have quadruplets", "you are putting your baby at risk" & a slew of other uneducated statements that are very far from my reality 🙄. When "celebrities" are pregnant in the press, they look glamorous, toned & are eager to talk about how they are going to get the baby weight off. While I've done my best to look as put together as possible, that's not real life, & it's not for most women."
You tell 'em!
Unfortunately, the model's page is filled with trolls commenting on every aspect of her body and lifestyle, and even though they might not be deterred by Tess' statement, we applaud her for having the courage to repeatedly stand up to them.
Even if the hardcore haters don't have a change of heart, other people following Tess or reading her views might begin to view the issue from a different perspective.
She should never stop the dialogue!
