Tori Spelling has had enough.
The mom and former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star frequently posts on social media about her family. She and husband Dean McDermott have five children together, plus his son from his first marriage. And those posts are often fodder for shamers, who bash Spelling for everything from letting her daughters dye their hair to the kids’ clothes and weight.
But Saturday, Spelling hit back with a long post to Instagram detailing the bullying she says her kids have faced at school, saying “they have been thru so much bullying I can no longer not share.”.
She starts her post with 11-year-old Stella, whom she says “has endured enough bullying for a lifetime.”.
More shaming:Dean McDermott fires back at ‘cowards’ who criticized Tori Spelling’s bikini picture.
Spelling says at her old school, administrators told her Stella was “playing the victim” and that the bully’s affluent parents assured there were “Never any consequences for his actions.”.
When they moved Stella to a new school, a bully made “comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn’t even know about.” This time, the school acted, but “the damage had been done.”.
Spelling says Stella “now associates her education with boys that have been so horrific to her. She wanted to empower others girls and be a business leader. She now has panic attacks and doesn’t want to return to school.”.
More family:Tori Spelling says her relationship with her stepson Jack blossomed after he ‘came out’.
She says Liam’s principal told her that her son was “unmotivated & lazy.” The new school that stood up for Stella didn’t help Liam, Spelling says: “He was bullied to the point that he developed severe emotional based headaches and stomach aches. … He continued to be bullied so bad we had to leave.”.
The actress concluded her post by saying she was “hesitant to post this bc as celebs we are sometimes judged for having problems others have.”.
Spelling’s comment section was flooded with support from fans and stories from others who have been bullied, or whose kids have had to cope.
“Doesn’t matter if you are a celebrity or not bullying is never ok,” commented Instagram user deavonhobson.
And user wyciskala added, “Every child deserves to feel safe at school.”.
