One thing I love about Jana Kramer is that girl ain’t afraid to hit back at the haters. Which is exactly what she did after people on Instagram body shamed her two weeks after giving birth to her son. Like, she looks 2,000 times better than I ever could and I’ve only given birth to a burrito.
Here’s the photo she posted that got a lot of hate from others. It looks like a lot of the negative comments have been deleted now. But, you can still see people responding to them.
Essentially it appears that people were shaming her for being skinny after giving birth. Also, they were saying she must of had surgery and paid for a trainer and chef. Which, the last two I would 100% do if I had the money to. Jana says she doesn’t use either though, for what it’s worth. That photo is adorable and people are the worst.
So she followed up with the following post to address the unwarranted crap storm that came the day before.

A few things because honestly I’m so frustrated and I need to vent this. I wanted to post this photo (showing my stomach) because I wanted to show my journey back to healthy and my goodness I’m so glad I didn’t which is why this photo is now cropped. It’s amazing the comments and how rude some people can be from my last photo I took yesterday. A few things, no I didn’t get a tummy tuck, no I don’t have a personal chef, no I don’t have fortunes so I didn’t train everyday. Yes I had a c section, yes I am still in pain and on meds but I do have a high pain tolerance. I have had 3 stomach surgeries before this (appendix, gallbladder, and c section).. In that photo I had a belly bandit wrapped tightly, and high waisted pants and wow here I am defending myself. Why?!? If I would have posted the photo of my actual stomach in this photo I would have probably been shamed too even when I was wanting to be vulnerable with my journey. Why do we women have to compare ourselves to each other and then shame?. I say this to myself as much as I say this to y’all…why can’t it be that we are all different. Our bodies are all beautiful and crafted differently, they heal different, they react different, they simply look different. Why do we need to shame someone for not looking a certain way? Or feel bad about ourselves for looking a certain way? Can we be kinder to ourselves and know that every women has a different journey but yet we are all beautiful? Can we lift women up but not tear yourself down in the process with comparing? Let’s give that a try…..I love y’all. Back to my baby.
Good for you, Jana Kramer. You know, when you’re a celebrity there sadly is the expectation that people will comment and your posts and not be nice. It comes with the territory, but that doesn’t excuse the behavior. Especially when the photo is as innocent as the one above where Jana is fully clothed two weeks after giving birth. Not that it matters if she was naked…it’s not your responsibility to trash anyone else’s body ever. Never. Not even once.
