Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton sparks debate after posting photo in shower with son

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton sparked big controversy from what was supposed to be a fun and happy little family Instagram post.

The father of two posted a pic of himself and his 2-year-old son Mario in the shower with the caption: "Our family motto is: #fun! We try and incorporate fun into as much of the everyday things we do! #Bathtime."

Social media had some strong opinions about the photo, some calling it creepy and others going so far as to brand it as child abuse.

On the other side, some say there is 'nothing wrong' with parents bathing with their young children and that this is perfectly fine because they are father and son.

Hilton is defending his photo and his parenting choices saying: "Everyone does what they see fit as a parent." and even replied to one angry comment, saying: "I had my bathing suit on, and I didn't feel the need to clarify that in the caption."
