In breaking news, we report that Younger actor Hilary Duff, who is expecting her second child with boyfriend Matthew Koma, has had a night out on the town. But that’s not the main part of the story – or even the real story.
The newsworthy aspect is that she after she happily posted about it on her Instagram, she wasn’t shamed for it. The comments on the post were mostly supportive.
It was a curious response, considering how much the internet loves to shame mothers for being real people who happen to have children, and tell them they are not allowed to have a good time. They’ve done it to everyone from Kylie Jenner to Chrissy Teigen, and it’s as unnecessary and ridiculous as it is regular.
This most recent shame-free comments section leads us to ask the all-important question:
Does Hillary Duff’s clubbing photo indicate mum shaming is slowly coming to an end?
