American actress Alicia Silverstone recently revealed to New York Times that she’s been taking baths with her 9-year-old son during the coronavirus quarantine.
In a recent interview, the “Clueless” actress said that she was taking the time to bond with her son Bear Blu during the lockdown, and that the two have been taking baths together to relax.
Her revelation, though, sparked off a big controversy online, and many people were shocked by the information.
The 43-year-old shares her 9-year-old son with her ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, and she went on to say that she takes a bath that really feels nourishing and comforting when her son is not with her.
Additionally, the ‘Blast from the past’ actress said that she’s been bonding with her son by having a mutual vegan diet.
She came under fire back in 2018 when she revealed that her son has never taken any medicine due to his vegan diet, and she voiced her anti-vaccination sentiments.
“He can get sniffles and a runny nose but he’s not down, he still goes to school. Two times in his life has he been like ‘Mommy I don’t feel good,’ and it was only for a few hours and he was back running around.”
After the news of Silverstone’s baths with her son came to public, many people branded her “sick” and “disgusting” and wrote that it’s absolutely inappropriate for her to bathe with her son.
“If a male celeb came out with this I imagine the replies wouldn’t be quite as tolerant.” – another user added.
