Oh my god, Becky. Look at her butt!
Jenna Dewan Tatum is catching some serious heat for a recent photo she posted to Instagram. Why? Because in it, the 36-year-old mom—a former dancer who now models for Danskin's Fit for Everything campaign—is rocking a barely-there lace bodysuit that exposes her booty. Her seriously enviable booty—and one that apparently inspired the mom shamers to come out in full force.
"A woman who shows her body this way shows that she needs validation and is looking for attention that isn't given at home," wrote one. "Please wear clothing next time and dress accordingly, and leave for Channing's eyes what belongs to him alone."
"A strong woman, secure in herself wouldn't need to show her butt to the world for compliments," added another. "Especially with a child."
And from a third: "I'm sure your husband is so proud."
Oh, you mean this guy?
Talk about a double standard!
