A lot of people have been commenting online.

Perez Hilton has been targetted by online trolls in the last few days for a photo he uploaded of him and his son. Perez’s son, Mario Armando Lavandeira, who is three years old was getting ready for his bath when Perez took a photo.

He then posted it Instagram and Twitter, like he does with most photos of his children.

People responded with vile and horrible comments, some of which are not worth repeating. The majority are calling it inappropriate with one person saying, “Fine now, not so fun when this kid is a teenager. Should be kept private or not taken at all,” and another saying, “This is child pornography!! You should be in jail with Hillary Clinton (sic)!”

Some others are sticking up for Perez saying, “I wish the people that react to this photo, react the same way with photos of naked women or men. Double standard society,” and another person saying, “The people that have a issue with this pic is the ones who are sick. It’s a father and his son for god sakes.”

The photo has been receiving so much attention that Perez Hilton was forced to respond saying, “If I gave a damn about what people thought about me as a parent, I would be bothered. But, I’m a rockstar of a dad and I am too blessed to be pressed. Thanks for the press, though!”
