Actress Julia Stiles has responded to the mommy-shamers who criticized the way she was holding her baby in one of her recent Instagram posts.


“It was brought to my attention that in the previous photo I am not holding my baby correctly,” Stiles began in her follow-up post on the photo-sharing social media platform.

“Wow, I didn’t expect that. What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That’s the internet for you, the carnivorous plant from ‘Little Shop of Horrors,’” the “10 Things I Hate About You” star continued.

“I was trying to keep as much of my son’s image private, including, I guess, his little feet. And it was just a photo taken at home, not how I normally carry him around. Thanks for the concern, anyway.”

But also, Instagrammers: instead of writing snarky comments about a 5 week old, try dancing around your living room to a Clash record. It's way more fun.

She ended her statement with a subtly savage piece of advice for Instagram’s mommy-shamers.

“Instead of writing snarky comments about a 5 week old, try dancing around your living room to a Clash record. It’s way more fun,” she captioned an image of the band.

Here’s the image that caused the initial commotion:
