Mama June lost weight, and haters only responded by bashing Kim Kardashian

Mama June has been working out.

And she was photographed showing off her slimmed-down figure in a Baywatch-inspired swimsuit during a recent vacation.

The former reality TV star reportedly shed 60 pounds after earlier this year, making the conscious decision to get serious about her health. She said when she started filming her now-canceled show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, she weighed more than 400 pounds.

While she might still be trying to lose some excess weight, and it is great to see her weight down, the negativity that is being thrown her way is offensive, insensitive, and completely uncalled for.

The photos have been receiving an overwhelming number of negative comments — the unoriginal "Can someone get rid of the beached whale" or likening her feet to hooves — with the occasional "you go girl" sprinkled in. Lame.

Some folks are trying to make it seem like they care, but really, they're just being as mean as everyone else, saying things like, "Good for June in losing some weight BUT maybe she could qualify as a candidate on TLC My 600-pound life…" or, "As much as I congratulate the weight loss, this is still wrong on every level."

The worst by far is, "Kim Kardashian went blonde again." Because why bash one person when you can say something really terrible about two?

You want to know what's wrong on every level? To hate on someone who has made positive changes in her life and to discourage someone from continuing on that path by saying they will never look like a supermodel.

Kudos to Mama June for taking steps to a healthier life — and I hope she doesn't read the comments.
