Tori Spelling faces backlash over her daughter Stella’s business
Customers berate Tori Spelling over her daughter’s failure to fulfill orders for her business calling it a “scam.”
10-year-old Stella launched her company, Stylish Slimes by Stella, about a year ago, but things have come to a grinding halt. Customers paid for Stylish Slimes months ago, but are yet to receive their orders.
Customers left angry messages on both Tori and Stylish Slime’s Instagram accounts, wanting to know where the orders are that they paid for.
One mother angrily wrote that her daughter wanted Stella’s slime so much that she saved up $20 by herself, and the order is yet to arrive. The mother slammed Tori for allowing matters to get out of hand as she wrote:
“I'm hearing that people have been waiting 3-4 months?!?! @torispelling why would you let her continue this ‘business’ if she’s that far in over her head? Why not shut it down, apologize & let her catch up? We would all understand if there was at least a little acknowledgment. Again, we’re both so disappointed.”
Upset by having to wait a long time, another customer wrote:
“Send me my slime it has been four months this is absurd. You are running a scam.”
Others who have also placed orders noted that Stella showcased her products at the Slime Con convention over the weekend, which angered them even more. People complained that Stella couldn’t fulfill her orders while complaints are ignored, as another buyer said:
“It's doubly frustrating to see that you obviously have time to make slime for SlimeCon2 yet don't have the time time to fulfill your orders?”
Stella started her business amid financial troubles Tori and her husband, Dean McDermott face. Back in November Tori got ordered to pay a credit card debt that was originally owed to Citibank.
American Express sued Tori in January 2016 for owing $37,981.97, while she and husband Dean got a final judgment in November 2017 of $220,000 over an unpaid loan of $400,000.According to Radar Online, the IRS drained their bank accounts to pay off almost $1 million owed in taxes in 2017.
On January 17, Tori shared a beautiful picture of her family posing with Ian Ziering, her ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ co-star, and friend, along with his family on Instagram. However, once again, followers could not resist negative comments as they called Tori and Dean’s five children; Beau,1, Finn, 6, Hattie, 7, Stella, 10, and Liam, 11, out on so-called faults.
The children got accused of having “greasy hair an wrinkled clothes,” and looking “chubby,” “shabby,” “cheap,” “terrible,” and other things far worse. Dean didn’t let the comments slide, and gave the people a piece of his mind as he posted:
"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??!!"
In the lengthy post, he also addressed the body shamers, disgusted by their blatant remarks about his children’s body shapes as he added:
“You should all be ashamed of yourselves for passing such horrible judgment on innocent beautiful children. Shame on you all!!!! Thank you to all the people who came to our defense. You’re all kind compassionate souls. Down with the haters!! Up with love!!”
Tori got very similar comments on Instagram, when she posted a picture of her children on September 2018, as they were about to leave for their first day of school.
Instead of sharing the happy day with Tori, comments steamed in about their physical appearance and clothes. No wonder Dean fired back, as any parent would. One thing many would agree on is that the world can do with more positivity and less hate speech.
