HILARY Duff has taken the unbelievable step to shut down rumors that she is involved in sex trafficking, labeling them “disgusting”.
On Saturday morning, Hilary, 32, began trending on Twitter after she posted a video of her son Luca, 8, laying down naked on Instagram.
People on Twitter began accusing Hilary of being involved in sex trafficking, forcing her to delete the post.
But she followed up with a video explaining her actions and said she covered up Luca’s private parts before posting the video.
The Lizzie Maguire star said: “Someone pointed out on Instagram that I did a nude of him, which I did, so we covered that up with sticker,” she said while briefly flashing the pic once more.”
Twitter users flooded the social media platform with the sex trafficking conspiracy theories.
One user wrote: “The fact that ppl are saying theres nothing wrong with the picture is a reason why celebs will never get caught trafficking their kids.
While a second added “I have photos of my kids ‘first baths’ and all that on my PRIVATE friends and fam only Facebook. And all anyone sees is a little bit of the top of a butt crack. BUT THATS NOT A BABY it’s and entire child. After about 18 months, nah cut it out.”
A shocked Hilary then took to Twitter herself to label the accusations as “disgusting”.
She wrote: “Everyone bored af right now I know..but this is actually disgusting.
“Whoever dreamed this one up and put this garbage into the universe should take a break from their damn phone. Maybe get a hobby.”
But Hilary’s fans rushed to her defence, telling her accusers to calm down.
One wrote: “y’all better leave Hilary Duff the f**k alone. child trafficking is a REACH and it is disgusting and disturbing that anyone would try to make such a claim.”
Another added: “People are accusing Hilary Duff of being a paedophile and sex trafficker because she has a naked photo of her own son.
