Perhaps we're biased, but the rule that "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all" is particularly important to follow with pregnant women. That has never been more clear than after a gossip site crossed the wrong mama: Beyoncé.
Last week, the pregnant-with-twins singer posted a close-up shot of her plump pout, and it caused the site to question whether she received lip injections, a procedure not recommended during pregnancy. What came next was a next-level takedown from Beyoncé's publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, and we'll just leave it right here for you to read in full:
"What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman's entire body? Please tell me. Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling? Do you know that often women's gums get swollen? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?
But the sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity. I stood silent during Beyonce's first pregnancy when you thought it was okay to bully her like the cowards you are, when you accused her of never being pregnant, but I simply cannot this time.
You are the saddest individuals and picking on a pregnant lady is tantamount to possessing the coldest, despicable heart. You need to find something else to do with your time and maybe stop by a store that has happiness on sale because you need to buy some."
