"If my wife lets herself go after childbirth, I'll leave" US podcast host reveals

Needless to say, the comments were coming in hard and fast.

Can we all agree that when it comes to women's bodies – mens' opinions does simply not matter – at all?

In general – and especially so when it comes to our bodies following childbirth – where we have just spent almost a year conceiving, growing and birthing a human being.

During a healthy pregnancy, most women put on weight – as we are supposed to, of course. To some, this baby weight falls off pretty much straight away once our babies are born, to others, it might take longer to shed the extra weight. And that is if we are even interested in shedding it! I mean; being someone's mother means having a lot more important things on your mind than what figure is on the scales.

However – what if your partner - the one who is meant to love you unconditionally and be really in awe of you for just having a baby - puts unnecessary pressure on your changing body? How would you feel about that? I can tell you how I would feel – and trust me, it would be the last thing he ever commented on before I booted him out the door.

"Is this too much?"

Three US-based sports stars recently went viral after they launched a podcast they describe as 'the most blunt podcast in the world' – and went on to discuss topics like their future wives' weight following childbirth.

Yup - that is right. They went there. And what is more laughable – the three lads –brothers Anthony and Nick Casasanta alongside Jason Girratano – are all currently single.

The trio, who all play in the NFL, shared a video to TikTok to promote their podcast, and needless to say, the clip went down like a ton of bricks.

They captioned the clip, "Is this too much?" and well... if you have to ask, you perhaps already know the answer.

"If my wife lets herself go after I have kids with her, I’m going to tell her once," Anthony can be heard saying to Nick and Jason.

"If you don’t get your sh*t together... I still want to be sexually attracted to my wife, my spouse, but if you can’t do that, I’m out'."

And to no one's surprise, the backlash came in so fast the lads were forced to turn off their comments on both TikTok and Instagram.

However, that did not stop people from sharing their thoughts on their other TikToks.

"You just KNOW all three are single," commented one person. "and all three have been rejected so much that they turn to misogyny."

Another added, "Good luck getting a wife, my dude. No woman wants someone who makes them feel insecure."

"They fathers did a terrible job at raising them," another TikTok user chimed in.

In fact, other social media users called the men a whole range of words ranging from "sad" and "repulsive" to "bitter" and "cowardly" for turning off the comments.

Doubling down on their claims

After the barrage of criticism they faced, and claiming they even received death threats following the episode, you would think the three podcast hosts would be keen to clarify – or even apologise – but that does not seem to be the case.

In fact, Australian news site News.com.au reached out to Anthony, Nick and Jason for a comment, only for them to literally double down on their comments, which they say were "taken out of context."

"We really feel as the video was taken out of context,” the NFL players said in the statement issued to media.

"We will not be apologising. We just don’t want our wives to be obese. We feel as if society promotes obesity which is a very unhealthy and uncomfortable way of living."

Making it about health, they continued:

"We promote healthy lifestyles here at NoFilterPod. It’s also not only about weight gain after childbirth, it’s also about mental health as well as physical health. We feel like it’s very important to hold spouses both men and women to a high standard."

Well, hope you are all happy to stay single, boys...
