Here’s an example of a comment found somewhere on the internet:
“You know I’m right, that baby is ugly. That’s why you’re all hyped up about it. Say what you want and don’t act like ugly babies don’t exist. It is what it is. Don’t be at mad me. And just b/c I said the baby was ugly, it doesn’t mean he’ll always be that way. Who knows, maybe the kid will eventually grow into his head.”
Comments like these are made frequently enough that Tia has heard about them, which indicates that a good amount of people are trash talking this kid. But does Tia Mowry appreciate that? No, she most certainly does not:
Appearing on Live From E! today, the Tia & Tamera star blasted online critics who have written what she said were “disgusting” comments about her 1-year-old son, Cree Taylor Hardrict, online.
“I really don’t understand why people feel the need to belittle a child, someone who doesn’t even have a voice yet to express themselves,” said Mowry. “I just think it’s disgusting—disgusting that we live in a society that focuses on looks.”
Mowry told the panel that she feels sympathy as well for fellow celebrities like Jessica Simpson who get so much flak for their post-pregnancy bodies.
“Guys, let’s get women time to get back to themselves. We just brought life into this world,” she added. “Some women bounce back quickly and some don’t…I’m not gonna be at a gym five days a week. I wanna spend time with my son.”
Of course, I totally agree with Tia here. Maybe in a few years, her little boy will start trying out new haircuts and clothing styles, maybe he’ll start to learn about accessorizing and personal styling, but right now I’m pretty sure he’s busy focusing on growing teeth and trying out solid food and learning how to talk so he can address the haters that don’t have anything better to do than to start discussions about someone’s baby’s attractiveness.
Seriously, he’s a baby. He’s a little one-year-old baby with chubby little cheeks and floppy baby hair and big baby eyes. He’s not Kelly Osbourne who made a dumb choice to bleach her eyebrows or Kim Kardashian who constantly offers up a wide variety of ass angles for us. You guys, he probably doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is. Do you really think he’s fair game?
Also, look at his little face!
How sweet is that face?
