Tori SpellingÂ isnâ€™t afraid to fight back against Instagram commenters. The BH90210 star snapped back at several people who accused her of making money off her children in recent Christmas photos.
â€œHaving a â€˜snowâ€™ ball putting the finishing touches on our amazingÂ @kingofchristmas tree in our chic and cozy holiday family pjs by @SantandabelÂ xoxo….â€ Spelling wrote in an Instagram post Friday, tagging the artificial Christmas tree and pajama brands.
The photos featured Spelling, her husband Dean McDermott, and their five children â€” Liam, 12, Stella, 11, Hattie, 8, Finn, 7, and Beau, 2 â€” wearing matching PJs next to the Christmas tree.
A follower accused Spelling of using her family to promote the brands, writing, â€œIs there anything this family will not do or wear for money!! Wow, these poor kids.â€
â€œJust FYI we were not paid for anything in this picture!â€ Spelling replied. â€œNo exchange of $ at all. We are just complete fans of these products.â€
Another user remarked, â€œI wonder if your kids get tired of being directed and produced for these paid promotionsâ€ and Spelling shot back, â€œThe answer is no bc we werenâ€™t paid for anything in this picture. This is our tree and these are their jammies. Is that ok with you?â€
A different comment read, â€œIt is sad how you use your children to promote yourself and make money. Do what you gotta do but let the kids make their decisions when they are old enough to.â€
But Spelling replied, â€œDidnâ€™t make any $ from this picture and not promoting anything aside from sharing our actual lives. This is us. Please make informed judgments [sic].â€
In August, while promoting the 90210 reboot, Spelling shared how growing up today is very different from when her hit television show aired, because technology and social media werenâ€™t a constant presence. â€œIt was a different world 30 years ago,â€ Spelling toldÂ Yahoo Lifestyle.Â â€œKids were a lot more sheltered then, and everyoneâ€™s eyes are more open nowadays. Itâ€™s different.â€
Spelling also took heat right before Halloween when an Instagram user disapproved of her 8-year-old daughterâ€™s red hair, captured in a family photo, writing, â€œParenting gone wrong.â€ The starâ€™s fans came to her defense.
