AceShowbiz - Reese Witherspoon's daughter has made it clear that she has no time for naysayers. Having received "bigoted" comments after she opened up about her sexuality, Ava Phillippe threatened to block those leaving the hateful remarks.
The 22-year-old beauty, whom Reese shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, sent out her warning on her Instagram Story. "QUICK REMINDER: I can & will block profiles commenting bigoted/hateful messages under my posts," she began.
"My Instagram profile is not a place for cruelty/hate speech & I intend to do what I can to keep it that way," Ava went on noting in the Wednesday, January 12 post. "Peace & Love."
This arrived just a few days after Ava spoke on her sexuality. When a fan asked "Do u like boys or girls?" during an Instagram Q&A, she replied, "I'm attracted to… people! (Gender is whatever)." Ava shared her answer along with a selfie of herself smiling while rocking bold blue eyeshadow. For her outfit, she opted to go with a striped blouse.
In addition to Ava, Reese has two other children. The former "Big Little Lies" star is a mother of 18-year-old son Deacon, whom she shares with Ryan, as well as 8-year-old Tennessee James with husband Jim Toth.
Back in June 2021, Reese opened up about her close relationship with Ava and Deacon. When sitting down with Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview's Summer 2021 cover story, she said, "That makes me want to cry, the idea of having a long relationship with adult children."
"I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it's so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now," she added. "So I'm really, really grateful that these little humans are in my life. Adult humans. I have two adult children now, Tracee. It's crazy."
