19 Times Celebrities Were Mom Shamed For Ridiculous Reasons

January 27, 2021

As if being a mother and a celebrity at the same time isn't one of the hardest jobs ever, these celebrities just couldn't catch a break.

I can only imagine the headache internet trolls bring when you're simply trying to share a precious moment with your babies!

The worst part is, the reasons behind the mom shaming are completely ridiculous. I mean, come on — give a gal a break! From "exposing" babies to mom's choice in baby food, these mom shamers are just unbelievable!

1. That time Chrissy Teigen chose the sex of her baby.

Chrissy Teigen is the clapback queen when it comes to her haters! She hilariously clapped back at a tweeter who criticized her for choosing an embryo during her pregnancy. She's clearly gives no effs.

2. That time Jana Kramer decided to give her baby food.

A celebrity mom can't even feed her baby in peace! The country artist was mom shamed for purchasing baby food instead of making her own, as recommended by several internet trolls.

3. That time a Halle Berry didn't show her kids' faces.

Some people have too much time on their hands. Case in point: this hater who claimed Halle was ashamed of her kids. A mama bear has every right to protect her cubs_. You feel me?_

4. That time Julia Stiles held her baby incorrectly.

This poor mom and actress was simply sharing a post about new motherhood when she ended up getting ruthlessly bullied by other moms for "smothering" her baby and not holding him correctly.

5. That time P!nk drank coffee while pregnant.

Twitter | @pink

Mom shamers tore P!nk a new one when she posted the picture below. Haters criticized everything from why she was drinking decaf coffee, to why her microwave is positioned so low.

6. That time Tess Holliday told us she was pregnant.

The beautiful plus-sized model was mom shamed for her weight, claiming to be putting her baby's health at risk. IMO, those haters need to hop off of WebMD and mind their own business.

7. That time Jessa Seewald exposed her son.

Jessa's baby is as cute as babies get. But can you believe people she was mom shamed for "exposing" those adorable chunky baby legs? Jessa's mommy shamers need to "expose" themselves to more important issues.

8. That time Reese Witherspoon fed her kid cinnamon rolls.

Instagram | @reesewitherspoon

While making breakfast for her little one, Reese was called out for serving too sugary of a meal. Aren't her kids allowed to indulge every once in a while? I think the haters are just hangry.

9. That time Snooki put mascara on her daughter.

Instagram | @snooki

She put a stop to mom shamers, quick. If you don't have anything nice to say, well, Snooki's not gonna let you say it at all. She turned off her comments and fired back with this response.

10. That time Mariah Carey let her four-year-old have a pacifier.

Instagram | @mariahcarey

Who doesn't love the diva and her adorable twins? Instead of appreciating this tender moment Mariah shared with her four-year-olds, mom shamers fussed about her son's pacifier. Let the man live!

11. That time Coco Austin pierced her daughter's ears.

Instagram | @babychanelnicole

After showing off her daughter's freshly pierced ears, mom shamers didn't waste time with comments saying it was too soon and that she was "exploiting her baby."

But Coco wasn't about to let the haters have the last word.

Instagram | @babychanelnicole

She later tweeted, "Some assume since u have money and live in a "celebrity world" that you don't do s***!...I've been 100% hands on w/Chanel."

12. Mila Kunis clapped back when she was mom shamed for breastfeeding in public. 

Instagram | @aplusk

Seriously?! I can't believe that people are still trying to shame women for breastfeeding.

“If it’s not for you, don’t look,” said Kunis.

”That’s what I chose to do, but I think it’s unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public," Kunis continued. 

Instagram | @aplusk

"In the States and in our culture, we sexualize the breast so much that there’s an aspect of it that people just don’t know how to wrap their head around."

13. I can't believe that there are people out there who have the audacity to come after Beyoncé. 

Instagram | @beyonce

Internet trolls never rest, but I can't believe that there are people who actually think it's okay to claim that Beyoncé doesn't properly care for Blue Ivy's hair.

There's even a Change.org petition titled "Comb her hair." I am livid.

But the trolls weren't done there. They also attacked Bey for having a glass of wine because she might have been breastfeeding. 

Instagram | @beyonce

This photo was posted shortly after Bey gave birth to Sir Carter and Rumi.

Can haters please keep Beyoncé's name out of their mouths? Thanks.

14. A tabloid actually called Hilary Duff a "C Minus Mother" because her son cried during a haircut. 

Instagram | @hilaryduff

I literally still cry during haircuts. Get over it.

“Everything I do feels judged or picked apart, and the whole world gets to know about it,” said Duff.

15. Remember when Coco Rocha was attacked by trolls for switching to formula?

Instagram | @cocorocha

After posting a pic of an app she uses to buy baby formula, Coco was attacked for not breastfeeding.

"Anyone who has a negative comment to make on the way I raise my baby will be blocked," responded Coco on Instagram.

16. Haters actually tried to shame Blake Lively for this photo of hubby Ryan Reynolds. 

Instagram | @blakelively

Commenters were quick to criticize the way that baby James was strapped into her carrier.

Blake Lively isn't even in this photograph, but apparently it's somehow her fault.

Ryan Reynolds responded to the criticism on the Today show, and he took all of the blame. 

Instagram | @vancityreynolds

“It was me, guys. I’m a first-time dad and that is not the first mistake I’ve made and I can guarantee it won’t be the last,” said Reynolds.

17. That time Megan Fox let her son wear a dress.

Instagram | @the_native_tiger

The actress posted an adorable photo of her son, who was dressed up as Elsa from Frozen. Mommy shamers were quick to take to her Instagram comments about how inappropriate they thought it was.

18. That time Kourtney Kardashian let her daughter wear a faux lip ring.

Instagram | @kourtneykardash

Kourtney was mom shamed for letting her daughter wear a faux lip ring. TBH, I don't think it's a big deal — it's fake, people! Have your kids never played dress-up before?

19. That time Kristin Cavallari posted this photo of her boys at the beach.

Instagram | @kristincavallari

An adorable photo of Kristin Cavallari's family turned into a mom shamers meeting on how often she was feeding her boys. Instagram users claimed that the boys appeared to be too skinny in the photos.

One Instagram user stated, “I understand you live a very strict dietary lifestyle but these children are very obviously nutritionally deficient."

Instagram | @kristincavallari

Her response? Hit 'em with sarcasm and put them hater blockers on. “Yep, I starve my children. Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life. Happy 4th hahaha," she wrote.

How do you feel about these mom shamers? Share your thoughts in the COMMENTS.

20. That time P!NK posted a photo on Instagram of her son without a diaper and the Internet lost their minds.

Instagram | @pink

In a lengthy Instagram post, the pop singer went off on the shamers.

"There's something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there," she wrote.

During an interview with Ellen, she explained that she won't be posting pictures of her kids anymore.

After explaining the story behind the infamous pelican photo, P!NK expressed that she cried a lot after receiving the hate and that it's just not worth it to post photos of her children in the future.

21. That time KKW was shamed for allowing North to wear red lipstick.

Instagram | @kimkardashian

Commenters complained that North shouldn't be allowed to wear makeup at such a young age and alluded that she is growing up too fast and losing her childhood because of it.

22. That time Amy Schumer was shamed for getting back to work two weeks after giving birth.

Instagram | @amyschumer

"Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing standup last night!," she posted on her Instagram.

The shaming came after she posted a picture of her return to comedy.

Instagram | @amyschumer

Many of her comrades gave her encouraging words on the post, calling her a "warrior" and applauding her for getting back to her passion.
