Fans turn on Celeste Barber in post-baby body feud with Tammy Hembrow


Fans turn on Celeste Barber after she criticised Tammy Hembrow for her slender post-baby body: ‘What a horrible thing to say to a new mum’

Fans have turned on Celeste Barber after she recently criticised Tammy Hembrow for showing off her toned body just 12 days after she gave birth.

Despite the 40-year-old comedian’s popularity on social media, many sided with the fitness influencer, 28, and accused Celeste of not being body-positive.

‘How can it be body positivity if a mother of three is being told to cover up? It’s the complete opposite,’ one critic wrote on Instagram.

They continued: ‘Normalise showing postpartum bodies at any size, whether it be smaller than Tammy or bigger than Tammy or whatever.’

Another chimed in: ‘Celeste was funny but now I feel like it’s [mean-spirited]. What a horrible thing to do to a new mother.’

Others questioned Celeste’s commitment to accepting bodies of all sizes after she suggested there was something wrong with Tammy’s somehow.

‘Celeste makes a living off scrutinising other women but says she’s an advocate for women? She [parodies] women who are fit and have a healthy lifestyle like Tammy does, but because it’s through a comedic lens everyone lets it happen,’ one critic said.

Another wrote: ‘Celeste… is the last person I would listen to when it comes to body image.’   

In an Instagram post on June 30, Tammy revealed her slim and toned body in activewear just 12 days postpartum, saying she stayed as active as possible during and after her pregnancy.

The social media star went on to emphasise that everyone’s journey is different and people shouldn’t compare themselves to others.

‘That being said I work and have worked extremely hard and want nothing more than to motivate and inspire you!’ she added. 

Celeste later reposted Tammy’s video and wrote: ‘No disrespect, well done on your success but this is dangerous.

Celeste, who shares two young sons with her husband Api Robin, then shared her own experience just days after giving birth. 

‘Jeez I was s**ting in a bag and screaming into a pillow after having my babies. How we look is irrelevant,’ she said. ‘Be kind to yourselves, moisturise your nipples and unfollow accounts that make you feel like s**t!’ 

Tammy welcomed daughter Posy last month with her Ironman fiancé Matt Poole. She is also mother to son Wolf, six, and daughter Saskia, five, from a previous relationship.
