Christina Haack criticized an article published on Psychology Today, as well as ex-husband Ant Anstead for sharing the supporting story.
Christina shared the title and author’s name in a screenshot of the story, along with a lengthy caption.
The HGTV star tagged the author and Psychology Today in her caption as she heavily criticized him.
“What a poorly written article,” said the mother of three. “Sloppy/clickbait journalism at its finest”, suggesting that the author “finds a new fact-centric narrative, not the Instagram comments section”.
Christina then asked the author to read the court documents from “both sides before writing this”, noting that “most of them are completely inaccurate and more tabloid-like than I would expect. of a doctorate”.
The drama: The reality star, 39, has been criticized in the story for her parenting of their son Hudson, three, when it comes to children on reality TV and on social media, and the absence of laws protecting them
Wow: She called the story ‘poorly written’ and said Ant, 43, sharing the story on his social media with ‘applause’ ‘makes it even more weird and disturbing’
Christina has two children, Taylor, 12, and Brayden, seven, with ex-husband Tarek El Moussa, who are featured on her reality shows and on Instagram.
She said they only film with her “for an hour (max) once every two months, it’s hugely different from scenarios where kids play with the main characters like ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’.
She expressed disgust at his reference to a possible “Hudson’s Law” that could protect children on social media platforms and reality TV shows.
‘Hudson’s Law?! Oh good? It’s absurd. You know nothing of my house. Hudson is MY son. I have always protected him and always will.
She also criticized the author’s sentence: “While Anstead has agreed that organic family posts are acceptable, Hall revealed, ironically in an Instagram post, that she will no longer use Hudson on her TV shows or on social media.”
Interesting: He posted a screenshot of another story about kids in reality TV as well as a link to the article about his son Hudson, calling the article ‘brilliant’.
She replied to it: “‘Ironically.’ Wow. It wasn’t ironic. I never fought to have a Hudson movie with me or post ads. I argued that a public figure with an Instagram public should take their own advice and keep Hudson out of all media if they were concerned about Hudson’s safety and well-being.
Christina ripped the author, writing: ‘Stop using me and my child for your story, it’s trashy and disgusting. There are many other home shows that feature their children and continue to do so as part of the family dynamic, there are many influencers across all platforms that feature their children in commercials. Are all these people putting their children in danger by using their children as “puppets?” The answer is no.’
The TV star said it was ‘not a ‘win for Hudson,’ but it was so ‘creating some peace for my family and taking the pressure off myself and this whole story of who is a best Instagram parent.
Speaking: The TV star said it was ‘not a ‘win for Hudson”, but it was so ‘creating some peace for my family and relieving the pressure on myself and on this whole story of who is a better Instagram parent”
She went back to criticizing the author, writing that “My reality TV shows are about HOME IMPROVEMENT”. Not my kids… So Hudson doesn’t need ‘Hudson’s Law’.’
The mother-of-three then updated her caption after discovering that Ant had shared the story on her Instagram page with cheering emojis: “Update – this just came to my attention. The father of ‘Hudson promotes this article on his page, but with applause… This makes it even more bizarre and disturbing.
Christina and Ant’s son Hudson isn’t featured on any of their shows, or on Instagram, unless it’s “organic” pictures.
Ant performs on Celebrity IOU: Joyride; he has previously starred in Wheeler Dealers as well as a number of other automotive related shows.
In September, Ant said in court documents reviewed by US Weekly that he believed Hudson was being “exploited” by Hall by being present on her social media and TV shows.
“The risks for a child working on a TV production set (even if that ‘set’ is Christina’s home) are countless and well documented,” he said. “Leaving aside the obvious pressures of working in a television production environment, children involved in television production often have lingering issues that affect their well-being, worldview and self-image, leaving them diminished and dependent. from the perceived approval of others for their self- worth.’
Anstead noted the tragic suicide of former Toddlers & Tiaras star Kailia Posey aged 16 last May.
“One of my many fears that Hudson will be forced to film reality television is the possibility that public ridicule over seemingly benign content will become insurmountably humiliating,” he said in court documents. “I urge the courts to revisit the recent and tragic case of Kailia Posey and a defining embarrassing meme.”
Anstead – who is also the father of daughter Amelie, 18, and son Archie, 15, with ex-wife Louise Anstead – filed for full custody of Hudson last April, telling the court that he felt that his youngest son was in a dangerous environment due to television production.
Hall told the court in response: “The allegation that I am ‘exploiting’ our son is truly offensive and simply untrue. After seeing what Ant wrote in his supplemental statement, it is clear that his motivation is not isn’t Hudson’s best interest.
Earlier this month, Ant came under fire for posting a photo of Hudson with his grandparents.
In response to a person who said it was “unfair”, Anstead said Hall “can post as much as she wants”.
A number of people on social media have questioned why Anstead was posting images of the child when he argued in court against the Christina on the Coast star.
Some in the comments section pointed out that Hall had used Hudson in posts that were considered paid ads, to which Anstead said, “Hudzo’s childhood is not for sale.” As a father, I will continue to mobilize for him x.’
Responding to a commenter who said he felt bad ‘for the shit Hudson will see when he gets old’, Anstead said: ‘He will read the private letter I wrote to him on April 21 a week before I got up for him. She had 25 weeks to agree not to exploit him. She finally has x.’
Anstead, who is dating Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger, remarks to one person that he stopped his son from being on the TV show he’s on “despite being asked multiple times.”
Ant and Christina separated in September 2020 after two years of marriage; they are currently fighting in a custody battle.
Their divorce was finalized in June 2021.
Ant filed documents in April seeking full custody of Hudson after previously agreeing to joint custody – alleging poor parenting on his part.
Hall, who married Joshua Hall last April, took to Instagram in October to say she would no longer post images of Hudson on social media amid a custody dispute with Anstead.
She said she was “mentally drained by the recent false accusations against” her from her ex-husband, who she said “tried to turn my family, friends and fans against me through tactics manipulation and false information” which “have been very successful”. impact on me and my household.
She continued, “Because of this, I have made the decision to no longer feature Hudson on Instagram, my TV shows, or any social platforms until he is old enough to make that decision on his own. .”

The Orange County, Calif., native said she’s “always done well not to feature Hudson on public platforms,” but wants to include him in posts about family activities.
“My only reason for wanting him to appear on my shows has always been to participate in the fun activities/outings with our family/siblings,” she said.
The former Flip or Flop star said Anstead makes judgments about his parenting ability based solely on his Instagram account “since that’s the only access he has to my personal life.”
She added: ‘It’s unnecessary pressure for a platform that’s meant to be used for sharing chosen moments, rather than a judging tool… especially since it’s a very small fraction of my personal life as the rest is kept between me and my family.’
Hall said Hudson will “be fine without her presence being displayed in any public forum”, and that she is and “ALWAYS will remain a protective mother”.
Anstead was seen with his son Hudson earlier this year
