It’s not okay to make fun of people for gaining weight, whether it’s a fictional character doing it, or a real life person. It doesn’t matter how shitty the person is/was. Making fun of people for gaining weight, being chubby, being fat, or any combination thereof, is super not okay.
alicia and bob were both pretty prominent celebrities, so it’s very likely that her pregnancy was closely followed. I can’t even imagine all the jokes about the beautiful/perfect baby they would make, all the people reading every magazine article about the pregnancy. poring over every photo of alicia’s gorgeous maternity clothes. bad bob does about a million interviews about how excited he is, how ready he is to be a dad.
