The celebrity blogger has hit back after being called a “pervert” for posting a picture of him showering with his young son.

The US gossip writer – who has an adopted son, Mario, and baby daughter Mia – was seen in the snap beaming with his two-year-old son splashing about happily in the background.

He captioned the shot: “Our family motto is: #fun! “We try and incorporate fun into as much of the everyday things we do! #Bathtime”

However, he soon faced a ferocious backlash online, with one Twitter user calling it “creepy” and accusing the blogger of “child abuse”.

Others went on to question whether Hilton was naked around his child – with some homophobic trolls even accusing him of “turning his son into a cupcake”.

Not one for taking abuse lying down, the writer defiantly tweeted afterwards: “Crazy that this has become today’s hot topic.

“Seriously, if this were @ chrishemsworth and his son, people would not be reacting this way.

“I had my bathing suit on, and I didn’t feel the need to clarify that in the caption,” he added.
