You may have seen Porsche Thomas’ face before in various fashion ads and editorials, and she’s also the daughter of Peter Thomas of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But recently, Porsche Thomas’ photos on social media have caught people’s attention for the dumbest reason ever.


Last week, Thomas posted a poolside photo of herself in a bikini. Now, while most people wished her a happy pregnancy and birth, others chose to focus on the color of her skin, saying how dark and “disgusting” her stomach looked. Anyone with any knowledge about skin color, and particularly darker skin, would know that during pregnancy, a woman’s skin can darken. But that didn’t stop the idiot trolls from making fun of it.


Days later, Thomas responded to the trolls with another photo of her amazing skin.

“While some of y’all been in my comments criticizing the blackness that is my belly and me during what shoulda been your holiday cheer, I been over here enjoying life, growing tiny humans, performing miracles and hopefully getting even blacker,” she wrote.

And on Jan. 7, Thomas and her husband did perform a miracle and welcomed two little boys into the world.


Congrats to the happy couple!

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

Absurd that someone even feels the need to be a prick about this, she looks great and more importantly glad to see those two adorable babies are doing well.
