Social media is defending actress Lauren London since body shamers are attacking her about her post-baby weight.
The former star of “The Game” was photographed courtside with her boyfriend, rapper Nipsey Hussle, at the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs game Sunday, Feb. 26. It was a rare appearance for the private couple, who welcomed their son Kross Asghedom in August. Many online were fixated on her fuller figure and slammed the star for not instantly slimming down post-pregnancy.

Several people noted the mother of two, who has a 7-year-old son with rapper Lil Wayne, simply looks like a normal woman.

London responded to the criticism Tuesday, Feb. 28, saying she won’t compromise herself for nasayers.
The star is not the first celebrity to be bashed for her weight. Former “Glee” actress Amber Riley defended her figure against body shamers in 2016.
“Why does me being fat offend so many people?” Riley asked on Instagram after a dental operation. “Is it because I’m confident and I’m fly and I’m sexy? Do my thighs offend? Does my stomach offend? Does my big juicy ass offend? Why? Why?”
Similarily, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, whose weight has gone up and down since the birth of her 5-year-old son Cree Hardrict, also used Instagram to call out a bully online. When a commenter wrote “getting fat” underneath one of Mowry-Hardrict’s photos, the Cooking Channel host wrote a lengthy response to the woman who works with young girls.
“I hope this isn’t what you would tell your girls?” the star said. “Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMEN? @hbcutravelers Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop.”
