We live in a world governed by the internet, where it isn’t uncommon for anyone to come across spam ads now and then. Be it for exercise equipment, gadgets, clothes, shoes, diets, or medicines; you have probably been bombarded with ads too.

For some, getting spam-ish texts with dubious content isn’t anything new. But sometimes, the content of the texts can be downright offending. The same thing happened to actress Alana De La Garza, who received a text calling her “fat.” 

Alana De La Garza is a Fit Mother of Two

Along with her husband Michael Roberts, De La Garza is parenting son Kieran Thomas Roberts (born September 28, 2010) and daughter Liv Elena Roberts (born July 7, 2013).

In November of 2010, after having Kieran, the Mexican actress talked to about her post-baby weight and the difficulty of reducing it. 

At first, you lose a ton of water weight, and that feels great. You think, ‘Oh, don’t I have nice ankles? Or ‘Wow, I feel so thin!’ Then you look in the mirror and say, ‘What is that little layer around my waist?’ UGH! In short, the way I’m dealing with it is a full-fledged battle

De La Garza also joked about having a method for losing weight where she chased her husband around the neighborhood as he sat in the back of a pick-up truck, holding a fishing pole with a cheeseburger dangling from it. 

On a more serious note, the FBI actress did say that she did 45 minutes of cardio and another 30 minutes of Pilates every other day.

De La Garza also spoke to Metmagny about working out to wind down and have fun. She shared how she liked learning her lines on the treadmill. And as expected of an actress who often portrays strong women in her work, she now appears very fit with no apparent weight problems.

Alana Del La Graza was Asked To “Stop being fat”

Last month, De La Garza received a rather phony text that straight away told her to “stop being fat,” all the while promoting a link that guaranteed she would lose a mind-boggling 80 pounds in just six weeks.


Got a text this morning. Trying to not take it personally 😂 #AHOLES #MadeMeLaugh

Once she shared a screenshot of this text, all kinds of comments made their way to the post. A few even shared their experiences about getting similar texts in the past. A user commented, “...I get that as well. By the way, you aren’t anywhere near fat.”. Another user @gregg4th said, “Next, they’ll send you text offering acting lessons. Both are bulls**t. You’re great!!”.

How do Spam Texts Find us?

Texts of similar nature to the one De La Garza received go around all the time. They are often written in ways to make people conscious of themselves.

You might be receiving these texts and emails from your friend or someone you know in some cases. Chances are, these spam emails are sent from hacked accounts to trick people into thinking these texts came from someone they know to sell them stuff.

These spam texts guarantee impossible results to tempt you to buy products that do not deliver on the promises. The best thing to do in these situations would be to ignore these texts as they are nothing more than false claims made to promote products, or like De La Garza, share it amongst your friends for a laugh.
