Justin Timberlake is being dad-shamed because his son has long hair
Justin Timberlake posted a really cute picture of his son Silas and his wife Jessica Biel in Paris. Cool, great, end of story, right? Well, not quite. People had ~thoughts~ about the fact that Silas has long hair. Some serious dad-shaming went down, and the whole thing was completely ridiculous.
Here’s the picture in question. Adorable, right?
Now, here are some of the Instagram comments.
So, yeah, people are actually offended by the fact that this 3-year-old boy wants to have long hair. They also seemed pretty deadset on pushing extremely outdated gender stereotypes. Annnnnd they felt the need to tell a complete STRANGER that he should cut his own kid’s hair.
It’s 2018, everybody, boys and girls can present themselves however they damn well please.
This isn’t the first time that the parenting police have come after boys with long hair. Last May, Megan Fox posted a picture of her two sons hanging out at the beach looking happy and healthy. Yet, once again, the people of the internet were pissed about their hair.
People were equally awful and judgmental about Jamie King walking the red carpet with her son, who was wearing a very cute pink dress.
Here’s hoping that one day people will stop trying to shove gender roles down our throats. Silas is ridiculously adorable, and I will take all the Timberlake/Biel family pictures I can get.
