Former 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!' star Jake Quickenden has slammed trolls after some told him his four-week-old son "needs Botox", and branded the little one "ugly"
Jake Quickenden has hit back at trolls after some branded his four-week-old son "ugly" and suggested he "needs Botox".
The 32-year-old reality TV star finds it "baffling" when people tell him to stay off social media if he doesn't want to be abused, and insisted anyone attacking his boy Leo online should "seek help".
He wrote on Instagram: "REAL POST... So in the past week this little man has been told he needs Botox, that he’s ugly as f*** and that he’s weird looking, me myself have also been told stay off social media if you don’t want to be trolled, it’s so baffling to me that I should have to stay off social media if I don’t want my 4 week old trolled. I don’t mind people giving me s***, as sad as it is I’ve had to get used to being called “ irrelevant “ “ ugly “ “ attention seeking “ and the list goes on but to troll a innocent child is so wrong and the people doing it seriously need to seek help. (sic)"
Jake – who shares his son with his girlfriend Sophie Church, who has son Fred, seven, from a previous relationship – enjoys sharing his "ups and downs" on social media, but insisted something needs to be done about the "dark side" of such websites.
He added: "Also why should I stay off social media if I don’t want him trolled the thought process of some people is shocking, maybe people just shouldn’t troll. I enjoy social media it’s full of lovely people who are supportive and I like sharing my ups and downs, I try and be real as possible, but unfortunately there is a dark side of social media and something needs doing about it. Anyway rant over!! The lion is 4 weeks today! Cute af Love you son @leooliverq .(sic)"
Jake recently admitted he keeps thinking Leo "hates" him, because the youngster won't settle for the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' star as well as he does for Sophie.
He posted: "Honest post.... I am so tired right now, I think it’s sleep deprivation but I keep thinking Leo hates me, he won’t settle for me Half as good as he does for Soph, burping is still a nightmare but I’ve managed a few now...
"My heart is so full but I’m also very emotional and I wasn’t expecting it to be so hard, I worry about every little thing is his breathing ok? Is he sleeping too much, is he eating enough, is that a new noise he’s making, What’s that little rash? (sic)"
