Hilary Duff bashed for kissing 4-year-old son on lips
Hilary Duff was trolled again after posting on Tuesday a controversial Instagram picture of her kissing her 4-year-old son on the lips.
The “Lizzie McGuire” alumnus shared the controversial snap with son Luca taken in Disneyland, California, captioned “Happiest place on earth! We love you Disneyland.”
Several squeamish online users spat up negative comments on Duff’s post. “It’s so dangerous to kiss a guy this age,” one user said. A few hours later, many users showered Duff their love and support by trumping her haters. Some even shared that they still kiss their children on the lips and that they consider it as a norm in their cultures.
“Kisses are supposed to show love and affection. She is doing nothing but loving her son, leave her alone,” one user justified.
Duff, 29, took to the photo-sharing app on the same day to fend off her trolls. “For anyone commenting that a kiss on the lips with my four-year-old is ‘inappropriate,’ go ahead and click unfollow with your warped minds and judgment.”
Luca is Duff’s son with ex-husband, Mike Cormie, an ice hockey athlete. They divorced this year after a six-year marriage.
Notably, this is the second time Duff ignited an uproar over her social media posts. Last Halloween, Duff posed with her new boyfriend, fitness trainer Jason Walsh, donned in their matching Pilgrim and Native American costumes. After posting it on social media and being stormed with offensive remarks, the couple apologized on social media. Gianna Francesca Catolico
