So I guess we Americans aren’t the only ones who suck for giving Jessica Simpson a hard time about her baby weight. Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai is getting an earful from her fans in India for not losing her baby weight fast enough or in a similar way fellow celebrity mom Victoria Beckham did late last year.
Here’s what Celebitchy writes about the haters:
Commentators have been unkind, lambasting the star for letting her fans down. Many have gone a step further, suggesting the star has a ‘duty’ to her fans to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.
One website posted a video of the star looking less than her usual svelte self, flicking between photographs of her pre-birth, and photos now. Called ‘Aishwarya Rai’s shocking weight gain’, the clip, which came accompanied by elephant sound effects, has been seen more than 500,000 times. Dozens more videos in a similar vein have been posted, each with viewing figures in the tens or hundreds of thousands.
In Aishwarya’s defense, she has said that she would rather enjoy motherhood with her baby daughter than fight people for the treadmill at the gym. So if we have this right, not only is Aishwarya drop-dead gorgeous, but she’s smart and level-headed, too? And people have a problem with that? I say kudos to Aishwarya for putting motherhood first and not letting her fans get to her. As we all know, the baby weight will come off eventually.
