Dean McDermott is "Horrified and Disgusted" Over Child Body-Shamers

Dean McDermott is truly aghast at the moment.

He’s nauseated.

He’s angry.

He’s simply at a loss for how strangers can act on the Internet.

And while we’ve never exactly been a fan of Tori Spelling’s annoying husband, we must admit here:

The guy has a point.

Earlier this week, McDermott shared a photo of his wife and their five kids on Instagram, giving followers a look at a cute brood comprised of: Liam, 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 1.

(Seriously, these two have A LOT of kids!)

Expecting a few heart emojis at best and a simple lack of popularity on the post at worst, McDermott was subsequently taken aback by some of the comments alongside the photo.

“Why do you let your kids get so fat?” one person asked, while another remarked on how they all looked “terrible.”

Dean McDermott and Family

Stunned by the criticism his kids encountered from these trolls, the 52-year old shot back as follows:

I am absolutely horrified and disgusted by the comments being left about my children. Body shaming and bullying my children??!! What is wrong with you people??!!

As mentioned previously, we’ve been rather critical of both McDermott and Spelling over the years, considering how often they seem to try and profit off their family.

Not to mention how irritating it has become to continually track the status of their marriage.

Like, are they getting divorced or not?!? It’s an easy question.

But we agree with Dean in this case.

Call us crazy, but we think trashing a bunch of toddlers as overweight and/or unattractive is simply over the line and unacceptable.

Good on McDermott for calling these losers out!

The picture in question (below) was snapped of the family at a screening for the film A Dog’s Way Home, and Dean expounded in his clapback to offer some context about his family’s appearance.

“For your information, we went from a long day at school to the movie. And I don’t know any child that is NOT disheveled at the end of the day.

“Not to mention that just before this picture was taken, they were wrestling and running around with all the other kids that were at the movie.”

He really didn’t need to justify the way everyone looks here, but we understand the instinct.

McDermott wasn’t done, either:

So I apologize we didn’t get the iron and steamer out to make them perfect for you. Their kids. They’re messy and dirty. That’s what they do.

And what’s wrong with shopping at Target??!! Over half of America shops there. The way they grow out of clothing so quickly is astounding.

Are we supposed to shop at Gucci?? These are kids folks. Messy stinky little bundles of fun, laughter and love.

And this is how he wrapped up:

They’re going through different growth phases, and even if our children are on the bigger side. Who cares.

They’re happy and healthy and I’m sorry they don’t look like skinny supermodels. People come in all shapes and sizes.

So who are you to judge. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for passing such horrible judgement on innocent beautiful children.

Shame on you all!!!! Thank you to all the people who came to our defense. You’re all kind compassionate souls. Down with the haters!! Up with love!!
