Dean McDermott won't stand for the haters who are giving his wife flacking about a paid meet and greet. "Stop the dragging," said the actor. 

Dean McDermott has had it with haters who seem to love targeting his wife, Tori Spelling. He gave them a piece of his mind on Wednesday with a four-minute rant.

McDermott's anger stemmed from the backlash that came for Spelling earlier this week after she announced plans to do a virtual meet and greet on Thursday. Her husband's reaction is found below.

Spelling gets flack for $95 show

The event was to take place at 5 pm PDT, with only 20 spots available for interested persons. It wasn't until fans clicked on the link that they observed the cost was $95. 

Many people found it to be too high — especially considering that several people can no longer work because of orders to self-quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

After the negative comments poured in, Spelling's husband McDermott had had enough. In his rant, he explained that his wife collaborated with a company to spread joy during these tough times.

McDermott's heated defense of his wife

Instead, she was faced with hate just because of who she is. He asserted: "My wife is one of the hardest working women in the business, okay? And she is simply providing for her family."

The voice actor noted that there were many other celebrities and influencers still making money online amid the outbreak. He railed against people targeting his wife in particular. 

He added: "So everybody needs to back off and just take a breath and relax." It wasn't the first time McDermott has had to defend his wife openly, and he said he's frustrated with it.

He insists that people stop the dragging

He further pointed out that this "drag" culture has to end, especially since people were unaware of whether or not Spelling was donating some of her income to charity. 

The tv producer also insisted that people are unaware of how friendly his wife is behind the scenes, making time for fans who stop her when she goes out. 

"Stop the dragging and get off my wife's back because we are all in this together," he said towards the end, pointing his finger at the camera to drive home his appeal.

In the comments, McDermott received words of support for standing up for his wife. Several of them agreed with him. McDermott and Spelling share five kids.

McDermott also has a grown son, Jack, from a previous marriage. Spelling is mom to Liam, 13, Stella, 11, Hattie, eight, Finn, seven, and Beau, three. Sadly, the kids also deal with bullying sometimes. 

His kids have also been bullied

Back in February, McDermott talked about the health problems his kids faced after they were bullied in school. Speaking on the podcast segment called "Daddy Issues," McDermott opened up about what happened.

Stella was bullied first, and it led to her having post-traumatic stress disorder even after the incident stopped. Liam was also bullied and ended up having emotion-based headaches and stomach aches. 

While the school removed Stella's bully from the school, Liam wasn't as lucky and ended up transferring. We hope that the bullying, both physical and virtual, stops for this family and all others.
