Megan Fox transformed into a total mama bear on Saturday after a congressional candidate came after her parenting and her sons’ style choices.
On Thursday, Robby Starbuck — who was disqualified from running for a U.S. congressional seat for the state of Tennessee in 2022 — shared a screenshotted photo on Twitter of Megan Fox out with her kids. The Transformers actress shares sons Noah 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 6 with ex-husband Brian Austin Green. In the photo, all three kids have long hair and Noah is rocking a pink tie dye set with the words “Strong Girls” written on the long-sleeve tee.
Starbuck — who is also a music video producer — alleged that around five years ago he lived in the same gated community as Fox and that his kids used to play at the park with her boys. “I saw 2 of them have a full-on breakdown saying they were forced by their mom to wear girls’ clothes as their nanny tried to console them. It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them.”
Starbuck replied to his tweet saying there was “another witness + the nanny” at the time of the “full-on breakdown.” And the rant only gets worse from there. Because once again we’re seeing that would-be politicians (and elected ones) have nothing better to do than focus on people’s clothing choices.
And On It Goes
Starbuck claims only two children were involved in the meltdown and that California “wouldn’t do anything about it” because the state “celebrates this stuff.”
“Weirder wrinkle to this: I worked with Megan once on a small shoot about a year or so before she moved into our community and she was very nice to me so I was shocked when this happened later on.”
“I never said anything publicly because they were so young and I thought it would stop because they were vocally expressing the desire to wear ‘boy clothes.’”
Starbuck and his family then moved to Tennessee, and when he saw this new screenshoted photo, he felt “really sad.” “Wish there was more we could’ve done back then but there really wasn’t anything we could do in CA,” the Republican said.
He then shared another picture of Fox and two of her kids who are wearing dresses.
Megan Fox was not here for Starbuck’s bullsh*t. On Sunday, she posted on Instagram, sharing a screenshot of Starbuck’s initial tweet. She tagged him and started her caption by saying she really doesn’t want to give him this attention (and honestly, same).
“But let me teach you something…,” she continued. “Irregardless of how desperate you may become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success, or fame — never use children as leverage or social currency. Especially under malevolent and erroneous pretense.”
“Exploiting my children’s gender identity to gain attention in your political campaign has put you on the wrong side of the universe,” she continued. “I have been burned at the stake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent, little men like you many times, and yet I’m still here. You f*cked with the wrong b*tch.”
YES, MEGAN, YES!!!!! Brb we need a second to give her a standing ovation. We jumped to the comments to see the support we hoped was flooding in, but instead, we saw a lot of outrageously hateful comments that we can’t even bring ourselves to repeat.
And then, annoyingly enough, there were a ton of comments which focused on the fact that she said “irregardless” instead of “regardless.” Really, people? Is this your way of being a jerk to her without proving you’re a bigot?
Not Her First Rodeo
Fox has been open about Noah’s choice to wear clothes that are traditionally seen as being for girls. She shared last year that he started wearing dresses when he was a toddler, that she made sure “nobody feels like they are weird or strange or different,” and that she “can’t control the way other people react to [her] children.”
“I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is,” she said. “Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want.”
Backup From Dad
Green quickly defended his wife and kids, telling TMZ that Starbuck’s story is “totally bogus.”
“There are only a few people in their world that can actually verify whether or not a story like this is true and I can tell you with absolute certainty it is not,” the 90210 actor said. “This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent child relationship.”
