If you don’t like Tia Mowry, then it might be a good idea to stay away from her Instagram page.

The former Sister Sister star took umbrage at a fan’s comment that she was ‘getting fat’, and posted a stinging response on the online photo sharing platform.

The 37-year-old even tagged the woman’s employer in the post – leading them to reply by publicly rejecting the ‘body shamer’.

Called her out: Tia posted her response to a troll who said she was ‘getting fat’ on her Instagram page

Stung by the woman’s assertion that she was getting fat, Tia wrote: ‘I don’t normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point. 

‘I just posted a few days ago about embracing and uplifting others about body image.’

She then shared the Instagram users comment, in the midst of a sea of positive feedback about how she looked in a floral dress.

‘[She] felt the need to say I was getting fat,’ she wrote.

Body shaming is a big issue for Tia, who responded to pregnancy rumours in December by explaining she had simply gained 10 to 15lbs thanks to her cooking show Tia Mowry at Home. 

She then addressed the troll directly.

‘I took a look at your profile and I was sad to see that you WORK for YOUNG African American girls aiding in their studies. 

Response: The charity the woman claimed to work for insisted she was a supporter and not an employee

‘I hope this isn’t what you would tell your girls? Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMAN?’

‘Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop. Would you say this to my face? Is this how you speak to yourself when YOU look at yourself in the mirror. Again, I’m shining a light on this issue hoping to see change. Love and uplift!’

The woman deleted her Instagram account, as the charity she claimed to work for swiftly responded, saying she was a supporter and not an employee.

‘HBCUTravelers does not encourage bullying in any way, shape, or form,’ wrote a social media manager for the charity, which supports placements overseas for young African-American people.

The charity then addressed Tia.

‘You are beautiful inside and out, and it saddens me that she made the negative remark,’ they wrote. ‘We will be sure to use this incident to stand out against negativity! Please continue to inspire and uplift others.’

Despite her claim not to ‘usually do this’, this is not the first time Tia has taken to social media in order to make a point.

Stung by jibes about her then three-year-old son Cree’s long hair back in 2014, she wrote: ‘I am proud to have a SON that embraces his natural hair.

‘ Hair length does not define your sex. Last I checked, a penis and a vagina does,’ Tia wrote, along with a photo of herself with Cree.

‘Pick up a book, educate yourself, and embrace cultures outside of your own, and maybe you will see that there are PLENTY of MEN wearing top knots and MEN with long hair. Here’s a shout-out to all the moms who have boys and girls with natural hair! Live ON!’
