A Facebook photo posted in August 2017 sparked backlash with some of the Little People, Big World star’s more conservative fans. In the "offensive"picture, the barre instructor, stood in front of a bathroom mirror in a sports bra and sweatpants with her belly on full display. “I love this family but I think it’s a disgrace to show your body to all the viewers. My opinion. I should be for your husband’s eyes only,” sniffed one person in the comments section. A second woman chimed in: “Why do young mothers-to-be want to show their naked bellies?” Audrey responded by changing her profile picture later that day to an image of herself sitting cross-legged on her bed in a bra and underwear with a big smile on her face.

One follower went as far as to call her “emaciated” and “severely malnourished.”

So I think.”
