Actor Brian Austin Green recently shared a family photo on social media that featured his three sons. The image caused a rift as some social media users found fault with the children sporting long hair.
Brian Austin Green, 47, might not have long her himself, but he recently proved that he was willing to fight for any man or boy’s choice to grow theirs if they want to. Taking to Instagram last week, the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star shared a car selfie featuring his three children in the backseat.
Green was seen in the driver’s seat while Noah Shannon, 7, Bodhi Ransom, 6, and Journey River, 4, all posed in the back strapped into their seatbelts. Several people noted that the boys had long hair and tried criticizing the actor for this.
