If you're planning on body shaming Tia Mowry, you better be prepared to take a little shaming yourself.

The 37-year-old actress turned the tables on an Internet troll on Thursday who called Mowry "fat."

"I don't normally do this, but I wanted to prove a point," she wrote, alongside a screenshot of Instagram comments. "I just posted a few days ago about embracing and uplifting others about body image. Here, @miekk_ felt the need to say I was getting fat. I took a look at your profile and I was sad to see that you WORK for YOUNG African American girls aiding in their studies. I hope this isn't what you would tell your girls? Does your BOSS know that this is how you degrade other WOMAN?"

Mowry then turned up the heat by reaching out to the organization that @miekk_ supported, calling their attention to the post that was meant to be anonymous.

"@hbcutravelers Internet BULLYING is not cool and it needs to stop," she wrote. "Would you say this to my face? Is this how you speak to yourself when YOU look at yourself in the mirror. Again, I'm shining a light on this issue hoping to see change. Love and uplift!"

@miekk_ has since deleted her Instagram account and HBCU Travelers issued an uplifting statement, clarifying @miekk_'s association with the organization.

"To @tiamowry: the young lady you mentioned does not work for our organization, but was a supporter of our mission, which can be viewed on our website," the post read. "You are beautiful inside and out, and it saddens me to see that she would make the negative remark that she did. We will be sure to use this incident to stand out against negativity! Please continue to inspire and uplift others."
