Blake Lively Slams Instagram Account For Posting 'Disturbing' Photos Of Her And Ryan Reynolds' Kids
| Last updated
Blake Lively has hit out at an Instagram account for 'exploiting very young kids' after they posted pictures of her and Ryan Reynolds' children.
The comment from the 34-year-old was related to a photograph of her, Ryan and their three children. The post has since been deleted.
Holding absolutely no prisoners, Blake commented on the snap: "This is so disturbing. I've personally shared with you that these men stalk and harass my children. And you are still posting.
"You said you would stop. You personally promised me. This is not casual appreciation. This is YOU also exploiting very young children. Please. Delete. Please.
"Some parents are ok with this. We. Are. NOT."
The Instagram account hollywoodstarkids has since lost a chunk of its Instagram following and now has just over 73,000.
After the post was deleted, Blake thanked people when she wrote on her Instagram story: "Thank you to everyone UNFOLLOWING accounts who exploit children. YOU make ALL the difference. Thank you for your integrity. Thank you."
Blake and Ryan have made it clear in the past that they are not comfortable with paparazzi taking pictures of their young children.
Another celebrity that shares the same sentiments is Jennifer Garner who was vocal about getting a bill passed in California which protects the children of those in the spotlight.
On top of not wanting her kids being pictured by photographers, Jennifer also keeps them off social media.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in March, Garner revealed something her and Ben Affleck's daughter, Violet, once said in school.
She explained: "Violet's hyper-articulate - she is Ben Affleck's daughter," adding: "And she stood up on a chair in a little velvet dress, with her hair a bit back and her glasses on and she didn't say her R's right, and she said: 'We didn't ask for this. We don't want these cameras, they're scary. The men are scary, they knock each other over and it's hard to feel like a kid when you're being chased'."
Despite Jennifer's wishes for her children not to be pictured, the same Instagram account that went against Blake's wishes recently posted a shot of Jennifer and her son.
Commenting on it, someone wrote: "More intrusive photos of minors without parental consent? Did we not learn?"
Another added: "Stop posting photos of minors in scenarios where their parents have not consented for them to be photographed. It's appalling."
