Hilary Duff Hits Back After Being Slammed For Kissing Her Son On The Lips

The 29-year-old actress tells her haters EXACTLY what she thinks of them...

Hilary Duff has lashed out at those who criticised her for sharing an Instagram snap of her and her son Luca kissing.

The 29-year-old posted the sweet shot earlier this week, which saw her pecking her four-year-old on the lips while enjoying a day out at Disneyland.

She’d captioned it: ‘Happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest happiest place on earth! We love you @disneyland 🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻❤️🙌🏻.’

Cute, right? But not everyone was okay with their show of affection.

Comments included: ‘I just find a smooch for more than 2 seconds weird like so appears in this picture,’ and: ‘I totally respect everyone’s decision about how they show their love, but I can’t help feeling awkward when parents kiss their kids on the mouth 🙈🙈.’

One even wrote: ‘I believe that you can transmit something to your child. I know Hilary is super clean, but still.’

Right. However, Hilary was not going to take this critique lying down.

She wrote an iPhone note and shared it on her page, telling haters: ‘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 judgement.’

Oosh. You tell ’em, gal.

Luckily for Hilary, she’s since received an outpouring of support.

One fellow mum said: ‘Keep kissing your kids Hilary!! I have a 12yo & 4yo sons and a 10yo daughter. I kiss them all every night before bed! If you’re not showing your children affection there is something wrong with you! I am sickened that this is actually even a discussion!!’


Another chipped in: ‘Still kiss all 3 of my babies on the mouth. My oldest son is 12 and I kiss him on the mouth. I don’t think anything of it. If anyone’s else does they are the crazy ones!! Sweet and beautiful picture!!’

We definitely agree with that last point. You keep doing you, lady.
