Halle Berry channelled some serious Catwoman energy as she shut down the bigots who shamed her six-year-old son for wearing heels.

The actress and mum of two is currently isolating at home with her family, and shares regular Instagram updates with her fans to keep them in the loop.

She recently posted a video of her son, Maceo, walking around her home wearing a fabulous pair of white high-heeled leather boots.

“Quarantine day 12,” she wrote beneath the video of Maceo happily clopping around in the oversized boots.

Although it was nothing more than some harmless entertainment for a child stuck in isolation was enough to get some people raging in the comments.

“I hope that’s the daughter,” one wrote, referring to Berry’s 12-year-old girl.

“Unfortunately it’s her son…” another replied.

Further commenters chimed in with “Stop acting like this is normal,” “Nothing fun about this,” “Please don’t let this kid think this is alright,” “My son never played in heels”, and “His mother is making him gay?”

#Quarantine Day 12 ?

A post shared by Halle Berry (@halleberry) on

Halle Berry was having absolutely none of it.

When one person referred to her son as a ‘she’, Berry gave the cutting yet simple reply: “Well it’s a he and he is having a ball.

“Tryna cope the best he can. Laughter helps a lot right now! It’s tight on these kids right now. Let’s have a laugh and some compassion.”

The actress rarely shares photos of her children on her social media and always obscures their faces when she does so – and after the latest fiasco, we can see why.

“I just don’t want to plaster them all over the internet,” Berry told Today in 2019.

“That just doesn’t feel right for me. They’re going to do that soon enough. That’s going to be their life when they grow up, and they will choose when that starts.”
