Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry has slammed a fan who criticised her for not revealing her childrens identity on social media. She says she is not “ashamed” of her children and does it for their privacy.
Berry has been doing her best to protect her children — Nahla Aubrey and Maceo Martinez. She shared on Instagram earlier this week a rare photograph of them with half of their faces cropped out.
However, she ended up being criticised by one of her followers, who clearly had no idea why it was important for her to keep her children out of the spotlight, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“What’s with the hiding of the faces’ They’re beautiful children why not show them off,” the fan wrote in the comment section.
Apparently, that wasn’t the fan’s first time to have called her out for hiding her children’s faces.
“I’ve noticed you have said this several times now, so let me be clear — I’m not at all ashamed of my children,” Berry responded to the criticism.
“I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children,” she explained.
Berry said that it her “job as their mother to protect their privacy”.
“When they grow and they’re of age and they want (to) share their images on the Internet, that will be for them to decide, not me. Feel me’ Have a beautiful day,” she concluded.
