Little Jackson was seen in Beverley Hills this week, running errands with his actress mother, wearing flowered leggings, pink UGGs, and braid extensions.
But the internet has no chill, and even people’s kids are not safe from getting trolled. Some social media users thought Theron’s choice for her son were “degrading” and slammed the 41-year-old for her parenting choices.
A Twitter user with the handle @ZoWilliams wrote, “How is this legal Charlize Theron has this boy in a dress an wig.”
Another social media user, @lesboja1978 tweeted, “What kind of parent does this to a child?? Why would you adopt this young black boy and then degrade him??”
