Earlier today, Tamar Braxton shared a stunning photo on her social media pages of herself looking sexier than ever and boldly praising how great she looks now, despite the fact that she admittedly felt like she “looked fat.” However, Braxton’s bold statement created a buzz on Instagram and Facebook, where some followers applauded her body while others felt it to be futile and insensitive towards people who really are overweight.
The singer and television personality, who starred in the last season of the popular dance reality show Dancing with the Stars, had shared this photo on Instagram, commenting on how she “looked like a billion bucks” while performing at the 2015 BET Awards. Although she looked fabulous, Tamar Braxton also admitted in the caption, “I remember I thought I looked fat.”
Tamar’s post found many supporters, but a few harsh remarks for being insensitive and self-centered surfaced as well. People even commented about Braxton being obnoxious by pointing out her skinny self just to get praised. As one fan on Facebook put it, “I do like Tamar but I am tried of hearing about her calling herself fat. She reminds me of that one type of girls who down talk their selves to have somebody say something nice about them. [sic]”
In November 2015, the singer was forced to leave Dancing with the Stars due to unexpected pulmonary embolisms in her lungs. Tamar, who was formerly a member of the R&B group The Braxtons with her sisters, has since seemed to recover pretty well. In addition to performing again, she’s also resumed her position as a co-host on the daytime talk show The Real. Although there have been rumors that there’s a feud brewing between Tamar Braxton and the other hosts, she recently assured fans on Instagram that there’s nothing going on and her spot on the show is still perfectly intact.
Tamar Braxton has also been quite active on Instagram lately, sharing cute photos of her two-year-old son, Logan, with her husband Vincent Herbert. Remarks and rumors aside, let’s hope the singer and TV star continues to stay healthy and look as gorgeous as she does in 2016 as well!
