Chloe Lewis has hit back after social media trolls branded a photo with her dad on holiday ‘creepy’.
The TOWIE star was hit with shocking criticism after she posted a sweet daddy-daughter photo online while the pair were on holiday together.
Fans commented on the picture which showed the 27-year-old sitting on her dad’s knee captioned “Me & my papa” with a heart emoji, saying it was a bit “weird.”
Another added: “Should your dad be touching you like that?” while one more said: “Weird relationship.”
One more fan wrote: “Something quite disturbing about the way he’s positioned his hand on you. Looks sinister and creepy, this is a pic you’d take with a lover… not with your father!”
Another added: “I mean do what you want, but I would just be uncomfortable half naked sat between my dad’s legs and his hand on my thigh/bum.”
But Chloe hit back and told one troll: “The only thing weird about this, is you thinking it’s weird. He’s my dad for god sake. Grow up.”
She also posted on her Instagram story, saying: “Can’t believe the comments I have had on this picture. He is my dad. It worries me the people that find this weird. I think you need to take a look at yourselves & your relationships with your dads.”
Resharing the picture again, she captioned it “Love you Dad”.
And the ITVBE star’s fans also rushed to her defence to support her.
One said: “OMG What is wrong with people. Lovely pic xxx”
Another added: “She’s her dad’s baby!!! Get a grip and find something better to do than making a fuss over other people’s happy lives.”
