Olivia Wilde is getting a crash course in the ups and downs of parenthood… like mom-shaming.
The actress and her partner, Jason Sudeikis, have two children, 3-year-old Otis and 11-month-old Daisy.
On Oct. 3, she posted a photo on Instagram of herself giving Otis a peck on the lips.
“Finding hope in this ❤,” she wrote in the caption.
The post received 112,000 likes, and the comments section is filled with positive responses thanking the actress for sharing this sweet moment.
However, there were some critics.
I’m sorry, “lip AIDS”?
Uh, pretty sure she’s not making out with her kid.
Yeah, you sound like a real sophisticated child psychologist.
Congrats on the Google search, now tell me more about how you know Olivia Wilde has HSV-1.
Wilde is no stranger to the insidious world of mom-shaming. Back in 2015, she came under fire for posting a photo of then-1-year-old Otis’ naked bum.
She’s also not the first celebrity to be shamed for kissing her child on the lips. Victoria Beckham was criticized for similar photo in 2016.
The actress responded to the haters with a strong message: “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.”
Instead of going on some long-winded rant about why these comments are out of line (that’s obvious, right?), let me just say this: Stop policing celebrity mothers. Wilde knows her child—and what’s best for him—better than random people on the Internet. It’s beyond messed up that a mother can’t share a genuine moment of love with her child without people contorting it into something wrong.
Thankfully, not everyone is out of their minds.
And other people actually got the message.
Oliva clearly posted this photo to share the positive aspects of her life, aka her son.
