Tori Spelling’s Back To School Photos Of Her Kids Spark Hateful Comments!
A new school year has started in America and celebrities have been sharing ‘back to school pics’ on their social media showing their offspring ready to tackle another year of education. For most parents it means the end of school holidays and the start of endless school drop offs and pick ups.
Such is the case with actress Tori Spelling who took great delight in sharing her ‘back to school pic’ which was especially important to her as four of her five children would be attending the same school- which means just one drop off and pick up!
(Tori and Dean McDermott have five children together: Liam, 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau,1.)
The adorable pic shows Liam, Stella, Hattie and Finn all dressed and ready for their first day. “School officially began today for my [four] older kiddos … This marks the first year that they’ll all be in the same school at the same time,” Spelling says in her Instagram post. “You know what that means? For one year and one year only ONLY 1 drop off = Happy Mom. And, Finn started Kindergarten at his new school and felt so proud to be at his big boy school with his older brother and sisters. #ThisIsFourInElementarySchool #SixthGrade #FifthGrade #FirstGrade #Kindergarten #Liam #Stella ##Hattie #Finn.”
And that’s where this conversation should have ended. Except it didn’t, because people are idiots! Some ‘adults’ felt the need to comment on Spelling’s photo of her CHILDREN saying they looked sloppy, messy and fat.
In a day and age where cyber bullying is such an epidemic, grown ass adults feel it’s okay to comment on a child’s appearance knowing full well they will most likely read the comments. How many more children do we need to lose from online bullying before we realise this is not okay?
Spelling can dress her children in whatever she feels like without having to justify wardrobe choices to her fans. Thy are children and they should be off limits to any kind of comments from adults who should know better.
Or maybe we should just keep our kids off social media until they are old enough to decide for themselves how they wish to be represented? Just a thought.
Others thankfully jumped to Spelling’s defence and called out the disgusting comments from her followers.
Come on people! We’re better than this. Children are growing up in a world where they are judged and critiqued on their appearance all the time. As adults it’s our job to empower them and give them self confidence to know their worth is not tied to how they look. Let’s be the adults here and set an example!
