Emily Ratajkowski posts ab-baring pics she says will cause ‘controversy’

She’s got it and she wants to flaunt it.

Emily Ratajkowski posted photos of her ripped stomach muscles on Instagram Wednesday — but said she was hesitant to do so because of the “controversy” it might stir up.

“CFDAs ! thank you @miumiu and congratulations @ninagarcia,” the 30-year-old model captioned the ab-baring pics before revealing, “(almost didn’t post this bc I knew the controversy it would stir up but hey it’s my body and I’m not going to lean into the shaming! God bless!).”

Unlike the body-shaming comments the actress said she expected to find, most of the remarks in her comments section were very complimentary.

“Honestly, god bless 🔥,” DJ Chantel Jeffries wrote.

Fellow model Amelia Gray Hamlin commented, “Omfg.”

However, earlier this month, Ratajkowski gave a deeper insight into some of the hate she claims she has received for her post-pregnancy body.

“People were really angry,” the “My Body” author told Howard Stern. “I posted some video in pajamas that my company had just launched … [One woman] was so mad. She was like … ‘She wants us to know that she ‘snapped back.’ This is unrealistic pressure.’”

Ratajkowski went on, “Listen, my body is different. I have a little extra skin still.”

Ratajkowski and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Sylvester Apollo Bear, in March.

By June, she was already walking the streets of New York City in a barely-there denim bra.

The model then made her return to the runway in September for the Savage x Fenty show, wearing a pink two-piece that left little to the imagination and perfectly flaunted her postpartum abs.
