Ayesha said on Instagram Stories that she lost 35 pounds and is very happy about it. "I spent my entire 20s having babies, nursing babies," she said. "Now it's my turn to nurse myself. I'm Jamaican, I'm strong, I'm fast and I'm resilient. Negativity only makes a mom go harder, word to the wise."

But fans are divided over the photo because of Ayesha's previous comments about bikini photos. She tweeted in 2015: "Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters."

Some fans interpreted the tweet as bikini-shaming, and now, they're calling Ayesha a hypocrite. "The issue is that you talked mess about everyone who showed skin before you gained all this little 'confidence'. Should’ve just said 'i’m an insecure hater,'" one fan commented on The Shade Room's post about it, while another wrote, "Girl. You shamed so many women showing off their body and now you’re showing yours! 😂 We don’t want your secret, an apology is needed."
Still, fellow celebs like Gabrielle Union and Olivia Munn came out in support of Ayesha, saying that she's inspired them to get fit this spring. "Alrighty. Lemme get my life together," Gabrielle wrote. Meanwhile, Olivia said, ""Is this what quarantine did to you???? I’m just gonna put down this bread and go for a hike real quick brb."
