While fame and notoriety can be a lot of fun – think endless streams of money, flashy red carpet events, mingling with society’s elite – living in the public eye comes with its share of scrutiny and judgment.
This is something Paris Hilton has experienced firsthand throughout her life in the spotlight.
However, things turned nasty recently when cruel internet trolls attacked her baby son’s appearance.
Recently, the reality TV star turned businesswoman found herself defending her 9-month-old son, Phoenix Barron when negative comments surfaced on her social media regarding his head size.
Paris, who is known for her unwavering confidence, didn’t hesitate to assert herself and protect her firstborn child.
Paris and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed Phoenix into their lives with the assistance of a surrogate earlier this year, marking their first child together (Carter has a daughter named Evie from a previous relationship). As new parents, they have been navigating the joys and challenges of parenthood with love and devotion.
Recently, the young family took a trip to New York, with Paris posting a photo of herself holding her son.
In the comments section, people had some pretty cruel things to say about the size of Phoenix’s head. Hurtful comments like “Man got a lot of thoughts up there” and “I heard this baby was created in a lab. And she didn’t carry it” appeared, with others chiming in with their own negative thoughts.
In response to the unwarranted criticism, Paris perfectly voiced her frustration, saying: “There are some sick people in this world. My angel is perfectly healthy. And yes, of course, he has been to a doctor, he has a large brain.”
She also added: “[My parents] are just so obsessed with him. I’m always calling my mom and my sister [Nicky Hilton] for advice, and I’m really lucky that I’m so close with my family, so I have such a big support group.”
This recent incident serves as a reminder that even celebrities are not immune to online criticism and hate. Children should always be off-limits when it comes to negativity and criticism, but Paris’ willingness to stand up against the cruel trolls shows her unwavering love for her son.
