SO. MANY. EMOTIONS.
Too many feels right now.

I keep seeing things all over the media about how “fat” Aishwarya Rai has gotten after having her baby in November. The stories and the pictures and the youtube videos are horrible and it’s just amazing to me how people can bully someone else like that. It’s completely normal for a woman to gain weight during her pregnancy and just because she doesn’t lose it on “Hollywood/Bollywood time” doesn’t mean it’s ok to publicly humiliate her because of her weight.
People make such a huge deal out of bullying yet we’re ok with bullying public figures because “it’s their job to be what I want to see”. She’s a human being and a mother and she’s still amazingly beautiful with or without the extra pounds. I’m sure she’ll drop the weight when she feels like it and then everyone who is bitching at her now will be kissing her feet again. It’s just sad, especially in Indian culture which practically idolizes the concept of motherhood, yet is now making it seem like a perfectly natural part of having a baby is disgusting. It’s a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario and I just think it’s bullshit because, HELLO, they called her fat last year at Cannes and now they’re using them as her “hot” before pictures?! What the actual fuck? You make fun of her then and now you want to backtrack?
It’s just sad and it’s frustrating to see it everywhere. She’s set to walk the red carpet at Cannes in four days so I really hope she looks amazing and everyone has to go and suck it. I still think she’s the bomb.
