The entrepreneur and social media influencer said in an interview that she expected bad vibes, but she said that a recent comment about her latest pregnancy got her to share the post.

Lewis disclosed that a woman recently sent her hurtful messages assuming she must be on welfare and how she should be on birth control.

Lewis called out a double standard where large black and brown families as broken and unable to care for their kids while white large families are portrayed in a positive way.

Lewis uses her platform to uplift families and women of colour, and also the criticism as fuel to meet and exceed her personal and family goals.
