No matter what you do, there will always be someone who provides unsolicited commentary, and one model just gave us the best clapback of 2017 so far. Porsche Thomas, who also happens to be the daughter of Peter Thomas (Real Housewives of Atlanta), took the time to clapback at her trolls after being criticized for showing off her beautiful pregnant belly. Thomas posted pictures of a maternity shoot on Instagram and the negative comments came flooding in. Critics began to criticize how dark Thomas' skin is and posed questions asking why she was so dark. In an exclusive interview with BET, Thomas shared her thoughts on the situation. "We're so used to seeing white baby bumps. We don't really get to see black baby bumps and when we [do], people have a negative reaction to it, for some reason, like it's vulgar. So, I think that when I posted that and the response happened, I wasn't totally surprised because I have seen that response, but not in this magnitude."

But Thomas didn't let the comments get to her. "I don't hold on to other people's opinions that have nothing to do with me. I laugh at the ignorance." And laughing is what she did when she posted her clapback post. 

Well, that handles that. Thomas has since had her beautiful twin boys. Congrats to her!
