Tori Spelling shared a sweet shot of her family alongside her “Beverly Hills, 90210″ pal, Ian Ziering, and his own wife and kids on Instagram Thursday.

But what started out as an innocent update turned into anything but in the comments section.

Tori received cruel comments about the five children she shares with husband Dean McDermott — Liam, 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 1.

Followers criticized the kids for a number of so-called faults, including having “greasy hair and wrinkled clothes,” looking “chubby,” “terrible,” “cheap,” “shabby,” “unhealthy” and far worse. But McDermott wasn’t willing to just silently scroll past the trolls.

Winter Wonderland ❄️alert … . LA kids + snow = mass excitement! We headed to Lake Arrowhead this past weekend and were lucky enough to not only stay at the amazing @lakearrowheadresortandspa but we also got a fresh snow fall during our visit. The kids had so much fun sledding and playing in the snow. It’s so cool to know that a short drive ( less than 2 hours) from Los Angeles we can take the kids to the beautiful mountains and experience fun in the snow with them. They are all excited to come back and ski and snowboard this winter. Are your kiddos skiers ⛷ or snowboarders? . #winter #lakearrowhead #snowvalleymountainresort #sledding #snowplay #family #winterweekends #mountains #snow

“I am absolutely horrified and disgusted by the comments being left about my children,” he wrote in a reply of his own. “Body shaming and bullying my children??!! What is wrong with you people??!!” From there he launched into a lengthy defense of just a few of the points that were raised.

“For your information, we went from a long day at school to the movie,” he explained. “And I don’t know any child that is NOT disheveled at the end of the day. Not to mention that just before this picture was taken, they were wrestling and running around with all the other kids that were at the movie. So I apologize we didn’t get the iron and steamer out to make them perfect for you. (They’re) kids. They’re messy and dirty. That’s what they do.”

“As far as saying my children are overweight, well, that’s just mean and uncalled for,” McDermott wrote.

“They’re going through different growth phases, and even if our children are on the bigger side, who cares? They’re happy and healthy and I’m sorry they don’t look like skinny supermodels. People come in all shapes and sizes. So who are you to judge? You should all be ashamed of yourselves for passing such horrible judgement on innocent beautiful children. Shame on you all!!!!!”

  • why does everyone feel that they are entitled to write horrible things about people – I bet they wouldn’t say it to Tori and her kids face to face! – no one loves a keyboard warrior!

  • Seriously, they look like a normal happy family. People just have to butt out and mind their own business and stop making people feel bad about themselves.

  • Seriously, what is wrong with these unhappy, unsatisfied people that just want to dissect and criticise all the time. Get a life! These photos are nothing but a family sharing beautiful and happy times and that is lovely to see.

  • I agree, what is wrong with people? I looked at the photo for what it was – a family photo to showcase a time and place, a happy memory! I never have and never will scrutinise photos to pick to pieces and then unfairly share what I think is wrong with someone’s looks or body. People do it to me in person and I find it amazing and shocking. I’ve been told I need to pluck my eyebrows! Really, who looks at another person’s eyebrows that closely? Not me. I look at the whole person and invest my time and energy in them as people, not for what they wear or how they look.

  • What a great reply to the low lives
    Personally, the look like a normal happy family who cares more about kids being kids, having fun over a perfect pic

  • It’s honestly disgusting that adults on social media can sit behind their screens and bully children. It makes me sick.
    They’re 2 HUMAN parents who have 5 children! 5! These people can’t sit there and say that it’d be easy to keep them all perfect. I only have 2 kids and they only ever look ‘perfect’ when we’re going somewhere special.

  • Some people are just plan nasty, they are obviously unhappy in their own lifes, so pick on incident children to make themselves feel better, shame on them!

  • And this is why bullying is so bad today. Agree with the below comments that adults are the worst for bullying and shaming others. What is that teaching our children? For all they know maybe this child has a health issue. The world is so cruel and nasty these days it blows my mind. I think her children are absolutely gorgeous and they look like extremely happy kids!

  • Adults are worse then children! And people wonder why children bully so much….they learn it from someone

  • I agree. These people bullying innocent kids. Really? Is that where people are in life now to have a go at kids. Totally rude and uncalled for. Be a better role model.

  • The kids look happy and like kids who have been having fun. I think it’s good she doesn’t care about them looking perfect to please everyone else, instead she cares about her kids having fun and being kids. Good on her. The people who are saying these things are really quite horrible people…they’re picking on children – not on!

  • Your kids are the love of your life, how dare anyone feel they have a right to put them down.
