AceShowbiz - Jessie James Decker's family vacation was ruined by trolls. The former contestant of "Dancing with the Stars" was forced to defend herself after she was accused of editing abs on her kids in a happy picture from their Thanksgiving getaway in Mexico.
In the adorable photo, the country star's sons Forrest Bradley (4) and Eric "Bubby" Thomas II (7) as well as daughter Vivianne Rose (8) were seen posing adorably in their swimming suits. "Vacation Decker style," so the 34-year-old singer captioned the post.
Upon catching wind of the post, fans were more focused on Jessie's children and their "ripped" bodies. "That doesn't look right … Sorry, not sorry," one Instagram user commented underneath the post. Some others suggested that Jessie heavily edited the pic, while another user called them "strange."
In response to the comments, Jessie wrote, "From one mother to another. Please don't call my children's appearance strange just because they don't look the way you think they should." She added, "It's unkind."
"It's a sad world we live in today when having healthy fit kids who are super active, play sports [and] build muscle naturally is 'weird,' "she wrote in response to another commenter. In another comment, the "Just Jessie" author sarcastically responded, "Surely this is an app but I don't see anyone saying as much. Yeah I used an 'ab' app on my small children wtf."
Not all of the comments were negative, though. Fellow "Dancing with the Stars" alum Selma Blair raved about the kids as she wrote, "I love these smiles. The strength. So in their bodies. Fun goals." Jessie's "DWTS" pro partner Alan Bersten also commented, joking, "How do they all have better bodies than me?????"
Back in 2021, Jessie hit back at her own body shamers as she talked about a Reddit page that "rips me apart on a daily basis." The wife of Eric Decker explained in an Instagram Story, "They're talking about how apparently fat I've gotten and how boxy and how terrible my body looks and they're accusing me of editing my body and all these things. It's pretty awful and I just cannot believe this is still happening in the world, that people are doing this."
"I work out and I eat what I want and I 100 percent am 10 pounds heavier than I used to be," the "Eric & Jessie: Game On" alum added. "I used to weigh, like, 115 and I'm not anymore. I eat what I want and I'm happy with that. But when you are writing blogs and stories and bullying me about how much weight I've gained and how fat my thighs are, I do take that offensively because what is the messaging that you are sharing?"
She concluded, "It's mean and it's bullying and it's not OK and I hope my daughter doesn't grow up in a world where people do this to her because it's wrong and I think we all need to do better."
