Tia Mowry-Hardrict posts Nicki Minaj meme, Barbz attack

There's a very fine line between sharing your opinion and throwing shade. Tia Mowry-Hardrict learned that lesson the hard way.

The "Instant Mom" actress recently found herself in hot water after posting a comparison meme of a fully-clothed Lisa Bonet and bikini-clad Nicki Minaj, with the words "me" and "other females" plastered across it. The post presumably meant Mowry-Hardrict saw herself different from the women who freely show their skin.

Mowry-Hardrict went against adding a caption to the photo, but that didn't stop Minaj's Barbz from coming after the star for her judgmental post.


"Lmfao at Tia. Nicki been reading people recently, I know she's going to say something about that," one commenter wrote.


Another stated, "This picture is shaming women (as usual) and any [woman] who supports this post is ignorant and an idiot."


Mowry-Hardrict later added a cation that read: "Not that there's anything wrong with the 'other girls.' 'Get it girls!! But this is so ME! P.S. Nobody is shaming anybody either! Please don't read into it! Gesh!"


The post was later deleted. Minaj has yet to respond to the supposed diss.


So we have to ask: shade or no shade? Sound off!
