ESPN’s Samantha Ponder is pregnant with her second child. And she’s due in a couple of months. But that didn’t stop some idiots from slamming her appearance. With today being International Women’s Day, this is not the way to go.

Ponder put out this tweet Tuesday night in response to the trolls who inexplicably had the free time to send out hate:

Why anyone would attack a pregnant woman is beyond reproach, but unfortunately, that’s the world we live in.

Ponder has been speculated as the replacement for Chris Berman on Sunday NFL Countdown, something that picked up steam in SI this week. She and her husband, Christian are parents to a daughter.

Ponder certainly had the right to hit back at the trolls. Some will ask why respond to them, but sometimes they go too far and they have to be put in their place.
