Like her role in Jennifer’s Body, Megan Fox is out for blood.
The actress fiercely called out former Congressional candidate, Robby Starbuck, after he claimed that she forces her and Brian Austin Green‘s kids Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 6, “to wear girls [sic] clothes,” calling the act “child abuse.”
“I really don’t want to give you this attention because clearly youre a clout chaser,” Fox captioned her June 10 Instagram. “but let me teach you something…irregardless of how desperate you may become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success, or fame—never use children as leverage or social currency, especially under malevolent and erroneous pretense.”
The Transformers alum continued to fire back at Starbuck, noting that his exploitative actions towards her kids have placed him on the “wrong side of the universe.”
“I have been burned at the stake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent, little men like you many times and yet I’m still here,” she declared, before closing out with a dagger-sharp message: “You f–ked with the wrong witch.”
In addition, Green also clapped back at the “bogus” claims made against his and Fox’s kids.
“There are only a few people in their world that can actually verify wether [sic] or not a story like this is true and I can tell you with absolute certainty it is not,” he told TMZ. “This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent child relationship.”
Fox, who split with Green in 2020 after nearly 10 years of marriage, has been open about the importance of letting their children express themselves through their style.
“Noah started wearing dresses when he was about two, and I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is,” Fox previously told Glamour. “Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want.”
She continued, “And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality.”
The mom of three, who is engaged to Machine Gun Kelly, explained that she gives her little ones a safe space to explore their style however they want to. But she’s aware that not everyone will be accepting of their choices.
“I can’t control the way other people react to my children,” she said. “I can’t control the things that other children—that they go to school with—have been taught and then repeat to them.”
Knowing how judgmental people can be, it’s factored into why she keeps her children out of the spotlight.
“I knew when they were very young, I wanted to try to protect them however I could, especially limiting their exposure to the Internet,” the actress explained. “So far, we’ve done a really good job and we maintain their innocence in a lot of ways, but I know I can’t protect them forever.”
In fact, it’s a reality that worries her.
“I just wish that humanity was not like this,” she added. “Although my kid is so brave and my child is so brave and I know that they’ve chosen this journey for a reason. It’s just hard as a mom.”
