'Avengers' Actress Lexi Rabe Asks Fans to Stop Bullying Her

Avengers: Endgame actress Lexi Rabe is making a plea to fans.

The seven-year-old, who played Robert Downey Jr.’s daughter in the film, has been facing online criticism.

Lexi and her mom Jessica took to her Instagram to share a video, asking fans to stop the bullying.

“Hi, I’m Lexi Rabe and I’m only seven years old. And I mess up sometimes so my mom and dad give me tons of talking to’s and time outs, believe me. And if I go anywhere and I’m acting a little silly or messed up, I’m just seven years old. Please don’t bully my family or me,” Lexi said.

In the caption, Jessica also shared her own message about the situation. Read the entire note…

I hate that we even have to post this. But yet again Lexi’s getting bullied. And this kind of thing makes it celebrities never want to leave the house never want to meet people. Please keep your opinions to yourself so Lexi can grow up in the free world. She’s a normal human being and she’s a child. We give her a talking and we give her timeouts but we don’t do that in public. Sometimes were rushing from place to place stressed like everyone else to get to set on time or work or whatever and we seem a little grumpy. I’m sorry if you see us this way but that’s life! If you ask us for an autograph we always almost say yes. If we happen to be having a bad day that might put us right on the right! We are not perfect! These perfect children are not being given the freedoms and the rights that they should. If your child is so scared to be themselves in public and mess up a little then you’re over parenting. We give our children plenty of rules and boundaries But then give them the freedoms to mess up and learn from their own mistakes. They would not be on set an on movies if they weren’t well behaved. Trust me they have no desire to hire kids like that! And there were plenty of children that productions can work with. So if you see us in public and think you have the right to judge. Wait. Number one until you have children of your own, and Number two realize that we’re not perfect and we’re not claiming to be! But just try to realize the different strokes for different folks what you do with your kids may work for you and what I do with my kids works well for me. My children love me and respect me even if they act out sometimes. Thank you! Jessica!

    1. That dress is completely inappropriate for a 7 year old.
    2. A 7 year old doesn’t belong on social media.
    3. Is she wearing makeup?

    what the fuck is wrong with people. Stay strong little girl.

  • Michele V

    Who is exactly bullying her? Deluded parents who think their meal ticket is a celebrity.

  • greppinwolf

    7 year olds shouldn’t have social media accounts. It’s also usually against the terms of service. Stage Moms and Dads are the worst — I’m sure they are already looting her funds.

  • Casey C

    what parent lets a 7 year old having an insta anyway? its against terms of service nor should she be reading comments about herself so IF she is being ‘bullied’ then her parnts are allowing it to happen and for her to see it.

  • MarcoPolo

    It’s disturbing that anyone would bully a little girl. But it’s also disturbing her parents are so invested in social media and her image that they’re posting this at all.

  • Robert

    Poor kid. Some people can be so stupid. Leave the kid alone.

  • KS_in_TP

    Nobody is paying attention to you, your daughter, or your family. This is a ploy for attention. What’s really going on — was Avengers supposed to be her big break but now the roles are not coming in?

  • KS_in_TP

    They don’t say who bullied her or why. It’s all attention-seeking bullshit.

  • Jamie

    If this is true, it’s sad. She shouldn’t have to post something like this.
