The 7-year-old actress who played Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan Stark in the hit movie Avengers: Endgame is begging for people to stop bullying her and her family.
Lexi Rabe shared a video on Instagram explaining she sometimes makes mistakes due to her age, but that she doesn't deserve the criticism she gets from fans.
“Hi, I’m Lexi Rabe and I’m only 7 years old. And I mess up sometimes so my mom and dad give me tons of talking to’s and time outs, believe me.”
She continued, “And if I go anywhere and I’m acting a little silly or messed up, I’m just 7 years old. Please don’t bully my family or me.”
Lexi finished with a reference to the words of Robert Downey Jr.’s Avengers character, saying, “Bye, love you 3,000.”
In the caption, Lexi’s parents, who manage Lexi's Instagram account, said they hated that they needed to say Lexi was getting bullied again.
“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."
