Some Dudes Are Leaving Creepy Comments On The Instagram Of The 7-Year-Old Who Played Tony Stark’s Daughter

Being a child actor can be extremely fraught. You get to something fun and meet all sorts of interesting people who are eager to support you. But you also come up against ugly aspects of the world at a very young age. And unfortunately, seven-year-old actress Lexi Rabe—who plays Morgan Stark in Avengers: Endgame—has had to deal with some ugliness.

Rabe, whose mother Jessica manages her Instagram account, posts pictures of her character as well as pictures taken with fans. Most fans write affirmative responses, but some write extremely creepy and disturbing posts such as this one, which was shared on Twitter:

Lexi’s mother immediately shut down the incredibly problematic response. “Comments are a little to mature in nature for such a young girl. I don’t know if it is a translation problem or you don’t know she’s only 7,” she wrote.

Then there was the foot fetish post.

The inappropriate comments were posted on a video of Rabe modeling in a fashion show to help raise money for homeless children.

“You designers have brought so much joy to some kids not only did we get to raise money and met our goal but we got clothes donated for the kids as well!! Ty! Ty! Ty!” the accompanying caption said.

In June, Rabe’s mother also had to make a statement against people bullying her daughter.

“I hate that we even have to post this. But yet again Lexi’s getting bullied. And this kind of thing makes it celebrities never want to leave the house never want to meet people. Please keep your opinions to yourself so Lexi can grow up in the free world. She’s a normal human being and she’s a child,” she wrote.

I hate that we even have to post this. But yet again Lexi’s getting bullied. And this kind of thing makes it celebrities never want to leave the house never want to meet people. Please keep your opinions to yourself so Lexi can grow up in the free world. She’s a normal human being and she’s a child. We give her a talking and we give her timeouts but we don’t do that in public. Sometimes were rushing from place to place stressed like everyone else to get to set on time or work or whatever and we seem a little grumpy. I’m sorry if you see us this way but that’s life! If you ask us for an autograph we always almost say yes. If we happen to be having a bad day that might put us right on the right! We are not perfect! These perfect children are not being given the freedoms and the rights that they should. If your child is so scared to be themselves in public and mess up a little then you’re over parenting. We give our children plenty of rules and boundaries But then give them the freedoms to mess up and learn from their own mistakes. They would not be on set an on movies if they weren’t well behaved. Trust me they have no desire to hire kids like that! And there were plenty of children that productions can work with. So if you see us in public and think you have the right to judge. Wait. Number one until you have children of your own, and Number two realize that we’re not perfect and we’re not claiming to be! But just try to realize the different strokes for different folks what you do with your kids may work for you and what I do with my kids works well for me. My children love me and respect me even if they act out sometimes. Thank you! Jessica!

Please do not bully or be creepy to a seven-year-old child who just happens to be an actor in a movie you like! Growing up in the spotlight is difficult enough without having to constantly worry about your child’s or your own safety and sense of self.
