Celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton posted a happy photo on Instagram with the caption: “Our family motto is: #fun! We try and incorporate fun into as much of the everyday things we do! #Bathtime.”
But the picture sparked a flood of comments on social media, with some branding the image “creepy” and another going so far as to call it “child abuse”.
Commenting on the snap, some users wrote: “IS THIS A JOKE THEY’RE BOTH NAKED”, “Kinda creepy”, and “That’s just odd”, with one particularly nasty comment reading: “This is child abuse.”
Responding to the negativity, Perez actually replied to one follower’s comment, writing: “I had my bathing suit on, and I didn’t feel the need to clarify that in the caption.”, however, many of the star’s fans were quick to defend him further.
One wrote: “No need to explain yourself. Shorts or not, nudity is nothing to be ashamed of and it’s how we teach our children about our bodies and how we respect ourselves.”, another added: “You don’t need to clarify anything.He also had lots of other people that backed him.
