It's a club no one really want to join. And Kristin Cavallari is the newest member.
Yup, the reality-star-turned-show-designer is the latest in a long line of celeb moms—Chrissy Teigen, Jana Kramer, Blake Lively—to be mom-shamed on social media, for basically just existing.
It all started when Cavallari posted the cutest picture ever of her husband Jay Cutler and their two sons Camden, 3, and Jaxon, 2, on the beach enjoying some family bonding time in matching striped swim trunks over the July 4th weekend.
"Even though we're not in the states, were still celebrating," she wrote in the caption. "Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th! #MyGuys."
So cute, right? I've always been a big fan of K Cav, and when I saw the innocent pic of the boys in the water with their snorkels pop up on my feed last week, the only thought I had was pretty much #GOALS!
So when I read online that the haters had come out in full force to accuse the mom of three (she gave birth to daughter Saylor back in November) of starving her kids after seeing her post, I went back to give it another look.
I still don't see it.
But others do. Because, apparently, what happens on family vacation doesn't stay on family vacation.
"Is this from Somalia?" snarked one commenter.
"What's wrong with that baby's [sic] back?" demanded another.
"I've never seen a child that skinny to the point you see their shoulder blades and spine," added a third.
"Seeing pictures of your boys and how they look is a bit shocking to see!" wrote a fourth."I know you cook healthy but to see the bones just doesn't seem normal, sorry!"
How a sweet picture devolved into a place for so much hatred—directed at two innocent toddler boys, no less!—I will never understand. But luckily, Kristin—who was never one for biting her tongue while playing the resident bad girl during her Laguna Beach days—was quick to fire off an awesome response to put all the mom-shamers in their place.
"Yep, I starve my children," she wrote in the comment section of her own post. "Just blocked the most people I've ever blocked in my entire life. Happy 4th hahaha."
Way to go, Kristin! We're sad that you even had to defend such an adorable family moment, but we're glad to see you standing up for yourself. Much love, mama!
