Sam Faiers was cruelly hounded by trolls after posting a picture of herself kissing her two-year-old son on the lips.
The Mummy Diaries star was also targeted for referring to baby Paul as "my lover" in the caption.
"Kisses with my lover," she had written as she posted the sweet picture to Instagram.
The former TOWIE babe, 27, is on holiday in the Maldives with boyfriend Paul Knightley and their two children Paul and Rosie, one.
The holiday snap sees Sam sat with little Paul on her knee and giving him a kiss on the lips.
She quickly changed the caption, removing the word ‘lover’ and replacing it with a string of love heart emojis.
But while some fans rushed to her defence and predicted that it had probably just been a spelling mistake, some lashed out at her, telling the star she was wrong to refer to her son that way.
"I wouldn’t call my son my lover," one commented.
Another suggested: "Probably edit that, it’s not right to call your little boy your lover. Lovely photo tho"
One asked her: "Bit weird to say with my lover no?"
While another said: "This is wrong!"
However, Sam’s fans rushed to defend her, with one warning it would be "David beckham drama number 2" as they drew similarities to the backlash he got over a picture of him kissing daughter Harper on the lips.
"Careful, the kissing on the lips police might turn up," one supporter told her.
While another said: "what is wrong with you? That is her son. Grow up"
Another fumed: "I don’t see what wrong with given your kids a kiss on lip that his mummy after all, your just reading into what she put"
One one said: "The people who instantly thinking kissing on the lips is wrong are the ones what need to go see a docter"
Sam has faced quite a lot of backlash recently.
She was accused of ripping off a children’s clothing range that she’d been getting free samples off for years when she launched her own line.
