So Emrata posted this photo on her Instagram stories the other day and has been called out for it by Aussie actress Claire Holt:

According to Claire, the fact that Emrata has managed to lose all the baby weight and has a flat stomach just two weeks after giving birth makes her the exception, not the rule and it’s “unfair” for emrata to show off her body like that because it makes other women feel bad:
“I try not to be the Grinch on here, but I really wanna say something cos it’s annoying me. If you post a picture of your completely flat stomach 10 days after having a baby and call that body positivity, to me that’s the same as posting a picture of the millions of dollars in your bank account and calling that success positivity.
It might be true, but it makes other people feel s**ty about themselves, and it’s not normal, and you’re an outlier, and you’re lucky. So maybe don’t show that part? Can we just use Instagram to try and make people feel included and not feel shit about themselves?”

What do you guys think? I hate emrata so a part of me tends to want to automatically side with whoever is criticising her, but I think Claire is being quite ridiculous. Just because emrata appears to have gotten her pre-baby body back super quickly does that mean she’s not allowed to post any body photos at the risk of upsetting other women? Please.
