Plus Mommy Update & Call For Help

12/12 Update: My account was finally reinstated today and cleared of all restrictions.

We need to address how social media platforms view larger bodies! ⁠Far too often plus size creators are not only reported for showing more skin because we exist in larger bodies but also bullied continuously. ⁠

I also hope my experience reminds everyone that we don’t own social media – so make sure you have contact info for those you love. ⁠I sincerely apologize to the community that this happened – I missed you all so much. ⁠

11/30 Update: I’m finally in touch with someone at Meta, and a ticket has been opened as of 11/30. But sadly, no resolution as you read this. I’ll continue to update this post.

On November 18th, I woke up to the alert below from Facebook with no access to my Facebook or Instagram communities. This includes my Plus Mommy Facebook community I’ve spent over a decade growing to 225K, over 37K on Instagram, and Plus Size Birth had over 25K on Instagram and 10K on Facebook.

Upon further discovery, I learned my Facebook cover photo for my Plus Mommy page was mass reported for something I’d NEVER DO! This is a photo I’ve had live on my page since January.


Below is the photo in question; as you can see, there’s nothing inappropriate about this image. It’s a stock photo I felt perfectly displayed my Plus Mommy brand – a plus size mom doing yoga with her daughter.

As a plus size creator with a large following, I get attacked often. The only other thing I can think of is I made a political post on my personal Facebook page that might’ve insight an attack against me – either way – it was reported for something it isn’t. And now, a community I’ve spent over a decade building and my family’s livelihood are at risk. 

I know the normal procedure is to file an appeal, but no matter what I do, I can’t get Facebook to send me the code to appeal or accept my form.

So, I’m doing anything I can think of to raise awareness of what is happening in hopes someone can help reinstate my communities. You can also report to Instagram that my @plusmommy and @plussizebirth accounts were removed for the wrong reason.

Thank you for reading and helping to spread the word.

Jen, this is just all so crazy and devastating.. for you and us, your community! I am so glad you have some contacts at Meta and hope they will get it sorted out soon. In the meantime, have you considered a go fund me? I would love to support you this holiday season since you have been a huge support for me all year!

I’m so sorry! I sent a message to Instagram through Help->Report a Problem if anyone else wants to. I couldn’t find how to “report” something because you’re accounts were gone and they are all seem to be focused on reporting negative content. I hope everything gets sorted out! Xoxo

Jen- I am so sorry that this happened and hope for a quick resolution. Please know that your accounts, resources and community were a great help to me during my pregnancy and continue to be now. The plus size mommy community needs you! Shame on whoever is trying to drag you down.
