Sara Haines has recently taken to Twitter after a number of inappropriate comments about her body.
Haines, host of Good Morning America, recently tweeted about online trolls who have repeatedly asked if she was pregnant.
She responded with an important lesson about body shaming and why asking such questions is rude.

"I've had 3 babies & I love the way I look, little belly pooch & all," Haines stated.

The GMA host has received both positive responses and negative backlash, with some continuing to body shame her.
