Paris Hilton defends herself after sharing photos of her son Phoenix

The mum has hit back at the cruel comments left by trolls

Paris Hilton has defended herself after sharing photos of her son, Phoenix, online.

The media personality is no stranger to criticism but when it came to cruel jibes being made about her son, Paris decided to speak out.

Paris and her husband, Carter Reum, welcomed the little boy back in January via surrogate.

The backlash started on Friday (20 October), shortly after Paris posted a picture of herself holding the nine-month-old.

Cruel comments soon poured in, with trolls ridiculing Phoenix about the size of his head. Paris then decided defend her son in a comment on TikTok.

She fumed: "There are some sick people in this world. My baby is perfectly healthy.

"And yes, of course he has been to a doctor, he just has a large brain."

The 42-year-old mum also took to social media to decry the 'targeting' of her son.

In a note shared to Instagram, Paris said: "Living life in the spotlight, comments are inevitable, but targeting my child, or anyone else's for that matter, is unacceptable.

"This hurts my heart more deeply than words can describe."

The Simple Life star also defended her decision to share snaps of her Phoenix, writing: "If I don't post my baby, people assume I'm not a great mother and if I do post him, there are some people who are cruel and hateful.

"I've dreamt of being a mom for as long as I can remember.

"Phoenix is my world and has been the biggest blessing of my life.

"Every day with him is a reminder of what truly matters. It's hard to fathom that there are people in the world who would target such innocence."

Paris ended her message with a plea that people be kinder to one another, concluding: "I hope that people can treat one another with more kindness and empathy."

Paris hit back at trolls who mocked the size of her son's head.

The snaps of her and Phoenix were shared shortly after she reacted to some of the shocking details of Britney Spears' new tell-all book.

Talking to Extra, Paris - who has been friendly with the 'Toxic' singer in the past - drew parallels between her own life and Britney's. In particular, she noted that she had also had an abortion.

Speaking of the revelation, Paris said: "For me, it was extremely healing.

"It's very difficult to have to relive and remember things that you don't want to remember, but talking about it, I think, is really important, just letting it go.

"And also there's so many people in the world who've been through similar situations so it will make them feel less alone."
