Hilary Duff Has Last Word For Those Who Criticized How She Kisses Her 4-Year-Old Son
While experiencing her entire childhood in the spotlight, it seems that now Hilary Duff’s child rearing years will also be center stage.
The 29-year-old singer and actress is followed by millions on Instagram. She often posts adorable photos with her 4-year-old son, Luca, but her latest has attracted attention for all the wrong reasons.
On a recent trip to Disneyland, Hilary snapped a lovely picture of the two of them posing in the gardens. However, there were followers were put off by the display of affection between the pair. Many commented that kissing her son on the lips was too sexual an act.
The comments were particularly harsh on the young mother.
“Borderline pedophilia,” one Instagram user wrote.
“I will not kiss my daughter on the mouth… I give her endless love without having to kiss her on the lips.”
Another chimed in with, “You should not kiss your son like that. There’s other ways to show love but not that one. It’s confusing for him, it’s not healthy.”
However, Hilary did not sway to the social pressure, firmly standing her ground. In true strong yet sweet Duff fashion, she told her haters to move on.
“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,” Hilary wrote on Instagram.
Thankfully, there was also a lot of support for Hilary, with many parents saying that they still kiss their children on the lips even now they are adults.
