Tori Spelling, the star of Beverly Hills, 90210, has been attacked on-line after she posted a photo of her family on Instagram.
Smiling with fellow co-star Ian Ziering, who was also on the hit TV show, husband Dean McDermott and their five children - Stella, Hattie, Liam, Beau and Finn - Tori wrote: 'I can't believe Ian Ziering and I once played Beverly Hills teens Steve Sanders and Donna Martin and now we are married to the loves of our lives and between us have 7 kiddos who all adore each other!'
But within minutes, cruel trolls had swarmed to the post, slamming Tori over the ‘state’ of her children, pictured to the left of this photo - attacking them for being overweight, dishevelled and looking ‘neglected’ and urging the parents to put the kids on a diet.
One wrote, 'I don't know how the kids are so chubby when their parents are not?'
Another commented: 'Notice how her and Dean are cleaned up and looking good while she let her kids make an appearance with greasy hair and wrinkled clothes.'
A third commentator posted, 'If you as a mother do everything to lose weight and even advertise for it, and your children are all obese, then ask yourself the question why all those children are obese??’
But proud dad Dean angrily defended his kids against the comments after reading pages of them on-line.
'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??!!'
And he explained: '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.'
'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.'
He went on to slam the ‘haters’ saying: ‘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!!!!”
He concluded: ‘Thank you to all the people who came to our defense. You’re all kind compassionate souls. Down with the haters!! Up with love!!’
Hundreds then commented to support Dean’s post - outraged by the trolls mean comments.
‘Dad of the year,’ wrote one. Said another: ‘Go Dean!’
