It seems Hilary Duff has found herself in the middle of an ear-piercing controversy after posting a photo of her 8-month-old daughter on Instagram. While it seems the actress and singer only intended to share a cute black and white snap of her and her youngest child, she quickly became the target of unexpected online hate as followers noticed the new, tiny studs in baby Banks’ ears.
Outraged followers faulted her for inflicting “unnecessary pain” on her young child and even unfollowed her in protest of the decision. However, some superfans were quick to come to Hilary’s defense by pointing out how happy baby and mama both look.
Never one to fuel the fire, Hilary stayed quiet on the issue and later shared a sweet moment between her and older son Luca as they took in an Independence Day fireworks show.
The Younger star isn’t alone, as celebrity moms including Gisele Bündchen, Kylie Jenner, Cardi B, and Khloé Kardashian have all been criticized for the same thing. One thing we can all agree upon is how much this proud mama obviously loves her kiddos and how fresh her summer bangs are looking, right?
I think we can all agree that ear piercing is a personal decision, and honestly, enough with the mom-shaming, period. Team Hilary, now and forever.
