Ain’t nobody got time for trolls. Least of all Megan Fox.
The Instagram trolls recently crawled out of their internet caves in response to a photo of Fox’s children rocking some seriously luscious locks. (We’ve got major hair envy over here.) The photo in question:
Fox has three children with husband Brian Austin Green: 5-year-old Noah and 4-year-old Bodhi are pictured. (Side note: what could be a better name for a child in a wetsuit than Bodhi?)
Her boys are absolutely adorable, clearly, but the internet is gonna internet and haters are gonna hate. Some of the more colorful comments read, “Poor darlings they look like they’re wearing wigs!” and “It’s just that girls should look like that, girls! And boys like boys. That’s it and that’s that.” There was also one that read, “Another damn celeb pushing this trans / genderless crap.”
It’s not the first time Fox has been mom-shamed for her children’s aesthetic choices. In the past, she was criticized for letting her boys wear dresses and leggings.
She never commented on the (unnecessary) drama, although her husband put it perfectly: “My son, he’s 4. I’ve heard from some people that they don’t agree with him wearing dresses. To them I say, I don’t care. He’s not harming anyone wearing a dress. So if he wants to wear a dress, good on him.”
And while neither parent has spoken up on this new hullabaloo (and they shouldn’t), plenty of decent human beings have come to their defense:
Reading @meganfox instagram I get sad. Why is mom shaming so ok? My son loves to have long hair. Does not make me a bad mom in any way. Nor does it make her a bad mom. Kids are happy, healthy and loved. All that matters! Jeeze! #momshaming #meganfox #notabadmom

There was also this piece of vital information from one rational Facebook user:
You have to ask yourself, if the best thing you have to do all day is criticize children’s haircuts online, are you really living your best life?
Leave Megan Fox and her children alone, y’all!
