Internet trolls have taken body shaming to a new low, targeting the children of a US country singer after she posted a happy snap on Instagram.

Jessie James Decker, who shares three children with former American football player Eric Decker, posted a photo of her three children, Eric Jnr, Vivianne Rose and Forrest on Instagram, with the caption, ‘Vacation Decker style’.

In the photo her three kids are happy and smiling, wearing their bathers. It didn’t take long for Jessie’s four million followers to notice the children’s incredibly fit physiques, with many leaving positive comments.

However there were plenty of trolls who decided to weigh in on the photo. Here’s a snapshot of some of the comments:

“This is clearly ‘enhanced’.”

“This is cringe.”

“This is odd.”

“I find this so strange.”

“That’s not normal sorry.”

“Are they on the juice or what?”

“This is terrifying.”

“Hoping their diet isn’t so strict that the abs are a result of not getting enough fat…”

There were even accusations of Photoshopping the image. And it led to Jessie hitting back at the trolls.

“I didn’t plan on addressing this because it’s bonkers but the photos are out there …” Jessie wrote in a follow up post.

“When I posted the pix of our vacation and included the kids being silly flexing on the beach on our Thanksgiving trip I had NO clue it would get the reaction it did. But Being accused of photoshopping abs on my kids (I can’t help but laugh) or … the polar opposite over “overtraining” our kids makes me realise how bizarre our world has gotten regarding the body and what’s normal and what’s not.

“We preach about body positivity and acceptance but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is “weird”? I want to raise my kids to feel proud of their bodies and hard work from either Vivi’s elite competitive gymnastics to Eric Jr wanting to be like dad as an NFL receiver to little Forrest who spends hours dancing his heart out.

“Let’s not pick and choose what we normalise regarding bodies and be accepting of all people and children. If we wanna do “better” then do better. I’m proud of my children and encourage them to live their dreams. So we’ll see y’all at the 2032 Olympics, and wearing Bubbys jersey in the stands and dancing at Forrests rock concert.”

The post was met with hundreds of positive comments, including from her husband Eric, who simply wrote, “U get mama bear.”

  • The kids look healthy. And there is no way anyone can force children to over exercise – if there was there would be a lot more less lazy children around.


  • Some kids are lean and build muscle due to sports like gymnastics, maybe that is them?


  • Ignore the trolls, they’re just out to stir. The kids look beautiful & healthy. My boys has abs like this, he’s 17 now, but also had it when he was little.


  • it’s not healthy for kids to have abs like these. but as long as they are happy, healthy and cared for that’s what matters most!


  • Its her kids. Good for her


  • People love to judge others… which is sad but to be making mean comments about little kids ( who by the way look happy and healthy) is just plain wrong…


  • I’ve never seen kids looking this way but they’re happy and that’s what matters the most.


  • I don’t know how kids have that much muscle. It does look a little strange, but if they’re happy and healthy, why shame them? People are probably a little jealous they can’t do that as adults!


  • Well thats different! As long as theyre happy and healthy


  • As long as they are happy and healthy, love her response


  • As long as they’re not on a diet, should be fine! Yes, it looks a little weird but man, I wish I had those when I was little…or maybe now. ????


  • Never seen it before, well not on children, different!


  • It’s an unusual look on kids, but if they’re happy and healthy, I don’t see a problem.


  • They look happy, fit, healthy and well cared for. Jealousy is a curse for some!


  • The kids look happy and healthy. I think that is all that matters.
