The 52-year-old actor took to Instagram to express his frustration and slam online trolls for constantly parent-shaming Tori, over what she chooses to feed their children.
When his wife actress, Tori Spelling, 45, shared a post of two of their children — Stella, 10, and Hattie, 7 – eating Little Bites strawberry yogurt muffins the mummy-shamers began openly criticising Spelling in the comments over what many claimed was a poor nutrition choice for kids.

This mom of 5 finds snack time a balancing act between pleasing my kiddos and feeling good as a parent about what I’m feeding them. #ad Thank you @littlebitessnacks for being yummy and kiddo approved ( my littles ❤️ the Chocolate Chip Muffins, Blueberry Muffins, and Strawberry Yogurt Muffins) while this mama bear is grateful that #lovelittlebites has no high fructose or corn syrup and is made with real ingredients like strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. PS- They are easy and mess free for little hands and great on the go! What is your kiddos fave flavor? #momwin
“There is nothing healthy about these and trying to pass them off as such is a true disservice to your fans,” commented one fan.
“You know how people tear apart your children on social media for their weight, why on earth would you take on this kind of endorcement [sic] and further subject them to this kind of public ridicule? I’m baffled and blown away by this,” wrote another.
Having reached the end of his tether, McDermott shared a video message with his followers, condemning the haters.
“Hey everybody I am sick and tired, sick and tired, of everybody taking a shot at my wife Tori Spelling,” he began.
“Just because she’s a celebrity they think they can say and do whatever they want. She posted about a snack. It’s a snack, people. Haven’t we given our kids a snack before? Cakes, cookies, whatever. It’s a snack.”
He added, “She’s a great mum. We’re great parents. Our kids eat healthy. They eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, and occasionally they have a snack. So can we get over ourselves?”
“Well listen, to all you parents out there who think they are holier than, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Why don’t you just right size the problem? It’s a snack people, get over it!”
“I’VE HAD ENOUGH!! This is newsworthy?? Leave my wife @torispelling alone already!! It’s a post about a snack!! A Snack!! Do you not give your kids snacks?? What’s wrong with people?? #backoff #thisisnews? #stopsocialbullying #stopbullying#peopleinglasshousesshouldntthrowstones #hypocrites #imfurious.”
