Being a celebrity is one tough job. Even if you try to keep your private life away from the limelight, the public will always find a way to meddle in your affairs.
Well, popular DJ-cum TV presenter Pierra Makena is a victim of body shaming and recently one of her followers called her ‘fat’. The mother of one, who gave birth last year, has gained weight and she is looking fabulous but according to some people, she needs to shed some kilos.
A few months ago, she replied to a body shaming article that was published in the Pulse magazine and she said;
“THE LAST THING A PERSON SHOULD TELL A MOTHER IS HOW BAD SHE LOOKS. . PUTTING HER DOWN IS UNFAIR AND UNCOUTH. THIS SHOULD STOP..I SPEAK AS A MOM! AND KUDOS TO ALL WOMEN AND MOTHERS LOOKING GORGEOUS AND BRINGING UP BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN! !!!
THE BEAUTY IS IN THE CHILDREN WE HAVE….
I WAS DEEPLY HURT AND I EVEN LET IT OUT ON MY SHOW LETSTALKKE TELLS YOU HOW EMOTIONAL WE GET SOMETIMES ??”
A Kenyan woman by the name Saumu took to social media to insult Pierra claiming that ‘a fat DJ is a no no’.
“Si kwa ubaya but honey you taking too long to get back into shape, You’re a role model out here. girls will think it’s ok to get a baby na wajiachilie. Instead of buying bigger size clothes get your body back. All with love. A fat DJ is a no no love,” read Saumu’s comment.
The well-endowed spinmaster was left speechless and she shared a screenshot on her Instagram asking fans what she should tell the lady who body shammed her.
“What should I tell this young lady? (Saumu),” wrote Makena.”
Check out reactions from Pierra Makena’s followers
Djkrowbar: I have gotten a share of those ones like three years back. I know that feeling. I get where they are coming from. As a public figure, the public thinks they know you and understand you and as a result of the media stereotyping women who are celebrities should look a certain way. The viewers pick it and run with it copy pasting it on every public figure. Thus such comments, and to your surprise just like I was surprised they have good intentions it’s a poor choice of words. On the other end, you as a person just like any human being you are evolving and have actually mentioned it. You love the new you. Such is the world we live in.
Sarina: You lose the baby fat at your own time Pierra Makena , people like Saumu have very little accomplishments and they feel the need to poke into people’s business .. Such low life’s who think humans can only be defined by body shape . A woman is much more than that . That said can’t stop and throw stones at every dog that barks ..
Junior: Nani alisema kukonda ndio urembo…? You look way much great. The curves 😍😍😍to die for..
Lyne: You are still beautiful body doesn’t describe someone as long as am happy with who I am that’s all matters we love you the way you are
Chris: Pierra Makena when they go low… go high.. kill her with kindness!
Okello: Pierra Makena don’t respond to every attack in your life… They will drag you behind… You need to keep moving gal
Jisty: Body shaming people is wrong. Let people be comfortable in their own skin. If you don’t like her body size unfollow her. Let people be body shaming affects people’s self esteem and it is wrong. Complain if you are her man. If not..jipe shughuli..
Halima: Pierra don’t stress she a heifer. YOU are a beautiful woman. Tell her to be the eff role model she imagines. Much love and respect
