Paris Hilton is standing up to the online critics who targeted her infant son. The heiress, who became a mother for the first time in February, has been sharing glimpses of her 8-month-old son, Phoenix, as he grows through his first year of life.
However, after posting several photos, some people began commenting on the size of Phoenix’s head. Paris wasted no time in putting a stop to the negative remarks.
Taking to her Instagram Story, Paris labeled the comments about her son’s head as “unacceptable.”
“While living life in the spotlight, comments are inevitable, targeting my child, or anyone else’s for that matter, is unacceptable. This hurts my heart more deeply than words can describe,” Hilton expressed.
“I’ve worked hard to create an environment based on love, respect, and acceptance, and I expect the same in return. If I don’t share pictures of my baby, people assume I’m not a good mother. And if I do share, there are some who are unkind and hateful.”
She went on, “I’m a proud working mom, and my baby is perfectly healthy, adorable, and angelic. I’ve dreamt of being a mom for as long as I can remember.”
“Phoenix is my world and has been the greatest blessing in my life. Every day with him reminds me of what truly matters. It’s disheartening to think that there are people out there who would target such innocence. I hope that people can treat one another with more kindness and empathy.”
And Hilton’s point is valid. She’s criticized whether she shares or doesn’t share, but regardless of her fame, it’s never acceptable to speak ill of an innocent child online.
