Julia Stiles calls internet a 'carnivorous plant'

Los Angeles, Dec 3 (IANS) Actress Julia Stiles has slammed the people, who trolled her on social media for holding her newborn son Strummer the wrong way in a carrier. She says internet is like a carnivorous plant.

"It was brought to my attention that in the previous photograph I am not holding my baby correctly. Wow, I didn't expect that," Stiles wrote on Instagram on Friday, reports dailymail.co.uk.

"What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That's the internet for you, the carnivorous plant from ‘Little Shop of Horrors'. 

"I was trying to keep as much of my son's image private, including, I guess, his little feet. And it was just a photograph taken at home, not how I normally carry him around. Thanks for the concern, anyway," she added.

The 36-year-old, who welcomed her first child in October, promoted a front baby carrier in a post she shared on Wednesday. In the image, she can be seen holding her son with his legs tucked up inside the pouch. 

Later on, a lot of fans started pointing out that baby's legs should have been poking out the sides of the carrier.
