Ashley Graham Sparks Controversy By Undergoing Cupping Treatment While Heavily Pregnant With Twins
Ashley Graham has her fans dueling it out in the comments after posting a polarizing Instagram photo.
The brunette bombshell, 34, took to Instagram on Tuesday, December 7 to give an update on her second pregnancy journey when users couldn’t help but raise eyebrows at one of the photos.
The second image in the series shows the model receiving cupping treatment, which is commonly used to help with blood flow, inflammation, muscle tension and various other health concerns.
But some people in the comments couldn’t help but give their 2 cents on whether or not the practice was safe for someone heavily pregnant.
“Cupping your pregnant stomach is incredibly irresponsible,” one user wrote. “I hope your baby’s head is ok. Seriously.”
While many others seemed to agree, it is unclear whether or not the photo actually depicts her pregnant belly, as some think it could be her backside.
“It’s obviously her butt,” another person wrote after calling out another user for “throwing out judgemental comments,” at Graham.
Plenty of other fans also came to her defense, with one person writing, “I’m sure whoever did it knows what they are doing abs [sic] have treated her before.”
Graham — who is already mom to 1-year-old son Isaac who she shares with husband Justin Ervin — announced her second pregnancy earlier this year.
“The past year has been full of tiny surprises, big griefs, familiar beginnings, and new stories,” she wrote in an IG post in July. “I’m just beginning to process and celebrate what this next chapter means for us ❤️."
In September, Graham announced that she was actually pregnant with twins after she posted an adorable video to her socials, showing the moment where she and her husband found out the news.
She has since been sharing frequent updates of her pregnancy, as she continues to flaunt her glowy pregnant body.
Last month, she clapped back at haters on an Instagram post after one user left a comment about her stretch marks.
“I had twins but I did not get stretch marks. I hope that does not affect your career,” the commenter wrote, per The Blast.
In response, Graham posted the comment on her story, joking “Gosh — I hope I still have a career with my stretch marks,” alongside some emojis rolling their eyes.
Despite the haters, the supermodel continues to embrace her pregnancy body. Last week, she posted a nude photo showing off the stretch marks on her stomach, writing, “Justin says my stretch marks look like the tree of life.”
