I might be in the minority, but I don’t see a little boy dressing up as a Disney villain here. Instead, I see a boy who is going to give Halloween queen Heidi Klum a good run for her money in a couple of years (and that’s not a bad thing of course)!!
Dad Will Hutt is defending his son Liam against all of the haters who say he shouldn’t have dressed up as Cruella de Vil for Halloween this year (in years past he dressed up as a Black Swan and Cleopatra).
“We encourage him to do what he wants. He’s a kid and Halloween is a great creative outlet,” Will Hutt told the Gaily Grind.
Unfortunately, his critics don’t see it that way, as they have slammed him for allowing the young boy to dress up as a female villain (because there are no girls out there who have never dressed up as Darth Vader for Halloween, right?!?!).
Thankfully, Hutt took the high road and put all of his son’s haters in their place.
He responded with class, writing on Facebook: “We deal with this type of small-minded person on a daily basis. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I will always support and encourage my kids creativity happily and without apology.”
He added, “”My son has planned to be Cruella for months and I was not going to let someone steal his shine. Whether it’s a Halloween costume, a lifestyle, a color or race, we should embrace one another, learn from one another and remember not everyone will always see the world the same as we do. And that’s OK, but don’t be ugly to one another. Treat all people with respect and kindness.”
