MAFS' Tahnee responds to 'uncomfortable' comments: 'Stop asking me'

"I don't think you should comment on anyone's weight."

MAFS' Tahnee Cook has taken to Instagram Stories to address some 'uncomfortable' comments she received on a photo of herself and her boyfriend Ollie Skelton.

After spending the weekend at Splendour in the Grass, Tahnee shared a series of photos, writing, "Having a splendid time this weekend with @skeltonollie."

In the photos, Tahnee holds a Smirnoff Seltzer can and is wearing a pink midi dress as she cosies up to Ollie.

Her followers loved the snaps, with one user writing, "Lovely to see you two still going strong."

"Lovely pic of you both, looking so happy and having a good weekend," another said.

"You guys are so cute together," a third said.

"Oppenheimer vs Barbie vibes," a fourth joked in reference to Ollie's black jacket and dark beanie next to Tahnee in her pink dress.

However, others thought it was OK to ask the reality star if she was expecting, with one user saying, "Is that a little bump?"

"When's the baby due?" another questioned.

"Love you guys from the start and hopefully new beginnings," a third said, adding pink and blue love heart emojis, as well as a baby.

"Looking pregnant in the last pic," someone else wrote.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Tahnee shared her thoughts on the matter, saying, "I just wanted to jump on to address some comments I saw on my recent Instagram post. I wasn't sure about replying to them but I saw a few that were commenting on the same nature so I thought I would jump on and, yeah talk to it.

"So I posted a photo of Ollie and I at Splendour, I was wearing a really cute maxi dress and noticing comments asking when the baby was true, or if I'm expecting or am I pregnant? I don't really think it's a nice thing to comment if someone is expecting a child. Just don't think it's something cool to comment on.

"I am not expecting a child. I did have a huge steak sandwich and chips right before I took that photo. And I guess my weight isn't something I am insecure about, but when I saw those comments, I was like, ' Oh, wow, okay. I didn't really think my stomach looked like I was expecting a baby!'"

She continued, "Just to rewind, I don't think you should comment on anyone's weight, whether they're expecting a child, if they're pregnant, I guess casting judgments, because I was also holding alcohol in the photo. So, if I was pregnant, I probably wouldn't be drinking."

"But yeah, I'm not pregnant, and I think just be mindful of what comments you are commenting on people's content. You don't know what they're going through and if that might be a trigger for them. No hate to people that commented it, I'm sure it was all with good intentions. Just be mindful that yeah, it's not really polite to have those comments. And no, I am not expecting a child. I am not pregnant and I was just bloated."

One user defended Tahnee in the comments, writing, "Literally why are [people] asking [about] babies like mind your goddamn business. She’s not preggo and now she feels uncomfortable and like having a totally normal body that changes shape through the days and months is something that shouldn’t be happening. Her story made me so sad and mad."

"Pretty sure we all look like this when we consume food of any kind," another added.

"It's her body. Let's mind our own business shall we," a third added.
