Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson takes down pool pic of his daughter after being dad-shamed.

People thought the pic was "inappropriate"😒

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a proud dad to three daughters. And he has no qualms about using social media to express his adoration for them.


IS THERE SOMETHING IN MY EYE?!

But even the best, most loving, and chiseled dads are no match for the judgmental eyes of the internet. Yesterday morning, The Rock posted a photo of himself and his 3-year-old daughter Jasmine at the pool—her perched on the edge, about to jump off, and him waiting to catch her, Yahoo reports.


It sounds adorable, but most of us will never get to see it. Because the famous dad was forced to delete the photo after throngs of commenters criticized him for the pic because Jasmine, who is THREE, is not wearing a bathing suit."I'd never post a pic of my child naked in a pool on social media...I understand the message that is being conveyed but there are some messed up people out there," one commenter wrote, according to Yahoo.

Other comments reportedly included: "Why would you expose a young child's body to millions of people?" "Why is she naked though?" and "I love the Rock but this pic isn't necessary for social media. They made bathing suits for a reason."

Other commenters came to The Rock's defense, pointing out that it's perfectly normal and not sexual at all for little kids to not wear a bathing suit while swimming. One commenter pointed out that it's the norm in Polynesian culture. "Those who are sexualizing this picture of his daughter because she is swimming with no clothes on obviously don't know what it's like to grow up in the islands or in a Polynesian house hold," they wrote. "This is very normal and not sexual in any way with our culture."

Here are more commenters defending his not-creepy choice to post the photo:


Still, I respect his choice to remove the photo. Because no dad wants to be accused of putting his daughter's safety and well-being in jeopardy. The internet may be harsh. But The Rock's love for his family is not.



On the bright side, at least it's a dad and not a mom being shamed for once! Good job, internet a**holes with too much free time, on smashing that glass ceiling.

Prince Harry isn't just a member of England's royal family - he's also a new dad. He and Duchess Meghan of Sussex welcomed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor into the world last month. He joins William and Kate's three offspring (George, Charlotte, and Lewis) as royal grandchildren. I assume he's being accordingly spoiled with elaborate titles, jewels, and small islands.

'Love is a battlefield' indeed. They say you have to kiss ~~at least~~ a few frogs to find your prince and it's inevitable that in seeking long-term romantic satisfaction, slip ups will happen. Whether it's a lack of compatibility, unfortunate circumstances, or straight up bad taste in the desired sex, your first shot at monogamous bliss might not succeed. And that's okay! Those experiences enrich our lives and strengthen our resolve to find love. That's what I tell myself when trying to rationalize my three-month stint with the bassist of a terrible noise rock band.

A teen took the stage with world leaders and unflinchingly spoke truth to power. YES, GIRL.

Four heads of state interrupted Natasha Mwansa's 4-minute speech to give her a standing ovation.

Watch out world. The young women have arrived, and they're taking the reins.

From Greta Thunberg to Emma Gonzales to Malala Yousafzai, young women are taking the microphone, organizing movements, and demanding the world's attention on major issues. And it appears they are just getting started.

Imagine you're 18 years old, preparing to go to college, and being invited to join a panel in the opening session of a huge international conference. Imagine that panel includes four current heads of state, and you'll be speaking before an audience of thousands of people from around the globe.

Now imagine standing up on that stage and telling those world leaders to their faces, in no uncertain terms, that they need to step up their game. No pussyfooting. No apologies.
