Charlize Theron Faces Backlash For Dressing Up Her Son As Elsa From ‘Frozen’
By Izza Sofia, 19 Jun 2017
Charlize Theron has been slammed on the internet after being pictured on a day out with her son.
The actress was snapped alongside her adopted son Jackson—who was seen dressed up as Disney’s favourite ice queen Elsa. According to Refinery29, he was “wearing a dress and a hat with a long Elsa braid”.
However, after the pictures surfaced online, social media users were quick to question the Oscar-winning star’s approach to parenting. One user accused the actress of ‘degrading’ her son, after attacking Theron’s decision to adopt Jackson.
Luckily, there are some people in the world celebrating Charlize’s commendable decision to let Jackson dress and act exactly as he wants to.
It seems like the internet needs to “let it go”.
Take a look at some of the comments about this incident below.
