Huddah seems to have lit up a fire in many plus-size celebrities as only cake does for a fat kid. She recently decided to comment on American star Lizzo and her fat acceptance stance plus all the fat-shaming conversations that have been happening of late.

“Stop promoting obesity!” Huddah yells at feminists and social justice warriors

Huddah on her part made a very strong case for why body positivity is a trash movement. Unfortunately, her comments which were rather sensible and grounded on scientific fact (whoever would have thought Huddah would ever give a factual statement?), has landed her in hot soup with Kenya’s oversize celebrities who have refused to address the crux of Huddah’s statement; healthy lifestyles.

Huddah Monroe sends a deep message to dark skin girls


To understand where Huddah is coming from, you need to understand how the social construct of body positivity started. It was back in 2004 when Ogilvy and Mathers, an ad agency created a video meant to celebrate natural beauty. Problem is, this campaign took on a life of its own and begun to be the rallying cry for overweight, fat, obese and morbidly obese women who took this as a license to live in the unhealthy state.

And as a result, most of the overweight plus size Kenyan celebrities have decided to speak up about Huddah and to respond to her comments about the body positivity movement celebrating unhealthy lifestyles and here are some of the comments that were fired her way:

DID I HEAR SOMEONE CALL HER ELEPHANT??? ~ ~ ##God knows why we human beings do not have it all. I reckon it's so we can compliment, complete and appreciate each other. None of us is close to perfect. However it is very sad when God gives you a sane mind and opportunities to use your brain wisely for the benefit of yourself and others and you choose to be ourightly silly and thoughtless. Dont you have a more acceptable and civil way of expressing or sharing your opinions without insulting? You claim to empower youth, are you now going to filter by size? Is this your best shot at serving a solution to a problem you seem to have 'elephantised'? #EVERYWOMANISAWOMANPERIOD!! SKINNY OR PHAT ! All women in their own capacity are Magical ..they are strong ..they have beautiful stories! ~ ~ They have broken boundaries!! They have achieved beyond their size!! ~ ~ SHOULD THIS FAT WOMEN STOP BUYING YOUR PRODUCTS??? JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE FAT?? ~ ~ Health is BEYOND SIZE !! You got the attention you clearly are so desperate to get. I hope you are sleeping better at night. Piece of advice !! While promoting your brand try get yourself some basic knowledge…invest in humanity and self awareness. Try be more selfless and remember a wise woman is careful with her words. Mhhm! I guess we all know what that makes you! If you know !! YOU KNOW 🙌🙌 #STOPBODYSHAMING #RESPECTWOMEN #cyberbullyingawarness #teamcurvykenya #plusizeblogger #bodypositivity

And the comment section was where the fire was ignited with even Huddah commenting:

People have no empathy Neomi. It’s sad to shame people and being totally blind to their experiences. There’s so much involved in and about our bodies. Unanijua miaka mob lol hata nikikula Nairobi mzima siwezi nona. There are other women who are battling diseases, hormonal imbalance, depression, genetics and a myriad of challenges that lead to our different body types. A good example is birth control. Some women gain weight and some lose weight. Some have their skin breaking out and some don’t. I think in the midst of all these things is to learn empathy. Our experiences are different and vary from each other. A little empathy.

LMFAO! Not someone . HUDDAH . I asked a simple question why is it ok to shame skinny women and glorify phat , FAT and call it curvy . Plump or thick when its FAT! Elephant size , gazelle sizr , lioness size . All are beautiful . But lets not glorify others and downplay others coz we think its ok. Lets promote a healthy lifestyle .

Don’t mind them..they survive on editing and photoshop to fake perfection and when they see a woman embracing her beauty every comfortable in her skin or size …they are their own enemy 🙄😡

It so sad , what does it cost you to be kind ! When God gives you such a platform you find kinder ways to address issues , you can talk about obesity without being offensive, many women are struggling with body image issues whether overweight or underweight , the least we can do is make them feel worse about themselves. One another thing God has a way of HUMBLING every human being , @huddahthebosschick I hope you realise how deep that post hurt most women that have fully supported you and your brand . And it’s okay it’s not a must they support you , but it doesn’t hurt to be kind ! People are out here going through shit!
