Jessie James Decker responded to criticism from online trolls after she was accused of photoshopping abdominal muscles onto her young children in a photo shared from their vacation in Mexico.
The country music singer initially had no plans to address the “bonkers” situation when she innocently posted family pictures from their Thanksgiving holiday, but reactions to the images prompted Decker to advocate for her kids.
“Being accused of photoshopping abs on my kids (I can’t help but laugh) or … the polar opposite over “overtraining” our kids makes me realize how bizarre our world has gotten regarding the body and what’s normal and what’s not,” she captioned a video of her three children enjoying their time off from school.
Over the weekend, Decker caught heat from social media users over her kids; Vivianne, eight; Eric Jr. seven; and Forrest, four.

The little ones are equally as fit as their parents, prompting a few Instagram followers to call out Decker for possibly altering the images.
“We preach about body positivity and acceptance but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is “weird”? I want to raise my kids to feel proud of their bodies and hard work from either Vivis elite competitive gymnastics to Eric Jr wanting to be like dad as an NFL receiver to little Forrest who spends hours dancing his heart out,” she wrote.

“Let’s not pick and choose what we normalize regarding bodies and be accepting of all people and children. If we wanna do “better” then do better.

Decker added, “I’m proud of my children and encourage them to live their dreams. So we’ll see y’all at the 2032 Olympics, and wearing Bubbys jersey in the stands and dancing at Forrests rock concert.”
“Vacation Decker style,” she initially captioned the photo which received backlash.
