Jessie James Decker has talked about ignoring people who call her a bad mom on the Internet. In a recent interview with E! News, the singer spoke about how she deals with comments on social media about her three kids, Vivianne, eight, Eric Jr., seven, and Forrest, four, who she has with her husband, Eric Decker. She said that she doesn’t let what people say about her online change what she posts on her accounts.
“I’m proud of my kids, and when I see a reaction, I’m always a little shocked.” “I realize that I have a lot of eyes watching, but I don’t let it affect what I want to post,” she said. “I’m going to live my life and not let the outside noise get to me.”
The 34-year-old went on to say how she protects her kids from the bad parts of social media. She told E! News, “There’s going to be the shamers, but there’s also a sense of community,” “Embrace the community, block out the hate, and just follow your own instincts.”
Decker also told women who feel like they’ve been mom-shamed what they should do. She told him, “Do what you want to for yourself and your family,” “You don’t owe anyone anything. You do what feels right, what feels comfortable, you are the mother and you’re going to know what’s best. Always follow your instincts and don’t fall into the pressure.”

The singer’s comments come two months after she defended her kids against online trolls who said she gave them abs by editing their pictures. She responded to the hate in the comments of her post at the time by saying, “It’s a sad world we live in today when having healthy fit kids who are super active, play sports [and] build muscle is naturally ‘weird.’”
In another message to a parent, she wrote, “From one mother to another. Please don’t call my children’s appearance strange just because they don’t look the way you think they should. It’s unkind.”
The next day, she also posted an Instagram reel to answer some negative comments. In it, she said that the rumors she’d heard about adding abs to her children were “bonkers.”
“We preach about body positivity and acceptance, but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is ‘weird?’” she wrote in the caption. “Let’s not pick and choose what we normalize regarding bodies and be accepting of all people and children.”
In December, she talked to Fox News about the backlash and stressed that she doesn’t let any online hate get to her.
Decker said, “I don’t know that I ever think too deep into it,” Decker said. “It comes with the territory. But I feel like I know what a great mom I am, and I know my truth.”
Decker said she has chosen to laugh about the reaction, adding, “We tune out the noise, and we’re proud of them [their children].” You are everything I ever dreamed of and more.” Keep yourself updated with all the latest news from our website Techyember.com and get all the recent updates.
