Kate Hudson is getting backlash online from fans, specially mothers, who are deeply offended by a new interview where she said having a C-Section is the laziest thing she’s ever done.
The actress and designer, 38, revealed many things in a Cosmopolitan questionnaire, like which of her costars she’d spend a weekend in Vegas with (Matthew McConaughey) or trust with a major secret (her stepfather Kurt Russell), but it was her response to ‘The laziest thing I’ve ever done,’ that has her people upset, with some even saying they no longer consider themselves a fan.
Fans of the October cover girl have taken to social media to share screenshots of the questionnaire and let Kate know how they feel about her comments; many mothers are telling their own C-Section stories, saying the procedure was not a choice but a necessity, that it saved both their and their babies’ lives, and that going through it was anything but lazy.

October cover star: She also shared which of her costars she’d spend a weekend in Vegas with or trust with a major secret, but it is her C-Section comments that are getting attention
‘As women, most of us don’t choose a C-Section, I know I didn’t… I have had both and believe me having a C-Section was one of the hardest things I have ever done; I ended up almost dying I was very, very ill and it took a long time to recover,’ said one of Kate’s 7.7million Instagram followers.
Some defended her: Many of Kate’s fans defended her words, saying she was only talking about her own experience
‘Then I guess I am lazy cause I had three. All because my daughter decided to kick out her umbilical cord so in order to SAVE HER LIFE they had to cut me open. Two weeks later I was back at work but hey I’m lazy right. Definitely not a fan anymore,’ another commented.
‘Hey #KateHudson – please tell me which part of major abdominal surgery is “lazy”? The procedure? The heal time? The nine months of work prior?’ someone wrote on Twitter.
Some people online even said they would no longer support Kate’s successful athletic clothing line Fabletics over her comments.
Yet many of Kate’s fans jumped in to defend her words, arguing that she was probably joking, and that she was discussing her own experience, not making a blanket statement about women who have C-Sections.
One wrote: ‘All you offended women take a seat. She was commenting about HERSELF. For her a S-Cection was lazy. She in no way said all C-Sections are lazy or that women who have them are lazy. Some women are just too touchy about this subject. Ya’ll probably have unresolved feelings about your C-Sections.’

Another added: ‘Aren’t we allowed to have our own birthing story? It’s our body, let her comment on HER experience.’
Kate has two sons, 13-year-old Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson and 6-year-old Bingham with former fiance Matt Bellamy. While Bingham was born naturally, Ryder was delivered through C-Section two weeks before his due date because he was too big when she went into labor, her hips weren’t opening, and she wasn’t dilating, she has said.
‘The doctor said I could go home, but it was such a pain in the butt to get to hospital because we were being stalked by photographers. We went in at midnight and I was like, “I am not going home. I just don’t want to do this again. Let’s just have a C-Section.” And so I got drugged up.’
In addition to the inflammatory response to one of the questionnaire’s questions, Kate also revealed that out of all her former costars, she’s choose Liv Tyler as a roommate, and would pick Larry David to play her leading man.
