Being famous and well-known can be fun—imagine having unlimited money, going to fancy red carpet events, and meeting with the most powerful people in society.
But being in the spotlight also means being criticized and watched closely.
This is something Paris Hilton knows all too well from her time in the press.
The reality TV star-turned-businesswoman recently had to defend her 9-month-old son, Phoenix Barron, after mean comments about the size of his head showed up on her social media.
Paris is known for having unwavering confidence, so she didn’t think twice about standing up for herself and her eldest child.
This year, Paris and her husband, Carter Reum, added Phoenix to their family with the help of a surrogate. There is already a daughter named Evie, born to Carter from a past relationship.
Phoenix is their first child together. As new moms, they have been lovingly and devotedly navigating the ups and downs of parenting.
The young family just got back from a trip to New York. Paris posted a picture of herself on social media holding her son.
In the comments section, some people said some pretty mean things about Phoenix’s head size.
People who say hurtful things like “I heard this baby was made in a lab” and “Man got a lot of thoughts up there” It came up that “she didn’t carry it,” and more people added their own negative opinions.
Paris succinctly expressed her annoyance at the unjustified criticism by stating, “There are some sick people in this world. My angel is doing great. Indeed, he has visited a doctor; he simply has a big brain.”
“[My parents] are just so obsessed with him,” she continued. “My sister Nicky Hilton and I are always available for advice over the phone, and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a large support system in my close-knit family.”
This recent incident serves as a reminder that hate and criticism on the internet can still harm celebrities.
Children should never be around hate and criticism, but Paris’s bravery in fighting back against the mean trolls shows how much she loves her son.
