“Listen up: I am always going to protect my daughter. I can handle my bullies but when someone attacks my daughter and says mean stuff about her, I am going to say something,” the “Whine Down” podcast host captioned her mother-daughter Instagram post. “This hasn’t been the first time someone has attacked her on my page or DM’s, so I wanted to set the record straight. Yes, Jolie has a speech delay. She works with a speech therapist every Friday. The fact [that] people attack her, and also me, saying I’m a bad mom, has really messed with me.”

Listen up: I am always going to protect my daughter. I can handle my bullies but when someone attacks my daughter and says mean stuff about her I am going to say something. This hasn’t been the first time someone has attacked her on my page or dm’s so I wanted to set the record straight. And look I have already cried a lot over this thinking somehow I did something wrong or doubted myself but I know that is not the case but us moms love to beat ourselves up. But ….Yes, Jolie has a speech delay. She works with a speech therapist every Friday. The fact people attack her, and also me saying I’m a bad mom has really messed with me. Bottom line, All kids learn and grow at different paces so if you want to not like me, that’s fine but please don’t pick on my child. I will NOT stand for it. I have chosen to show my life and my kids online and maybe that is my fault, but I will not let u bully my kid. You don’t know what goes on in this house so please don’t be mean….listen to this weeks podcast for more on this topic. (Link in stories).

The One Tree Hill alum added: “Bottom line, all kids learn and grow at different paces so if you want to not like me, that’s fine, but please don’t pick on my child. I will NOT stand for it. I have chosen to show my life and my kids online and maybe that is my fault, but I will not let u bully my kid. You don’t know what goes on in this house so please don’t be mean.”

So, what comment caused Kramer to clap back specifically? After criticizing how often the “I Got the Boy” singer talks about sex on her podcast and wears fake eyelashes, a hater wrote, “She needs to put her priorities and focus on things in her life that should be of immediate concern. Like the fact that her 3-year-old daughter still talks and behaves like a 1-year-old.”

The Support the Girls actress opened up about this even further on her Instagram Story.

“If you don’t like my fake eyelashes, I don’t care,” she said. “They’re mine, not yours, so that’s fine, you don’t have to like them. If you don’t want to listen to my podcast, OK, I’m sorry. But when you attack my kid and think that I’m not focused on my child, it really, really bothers me. Do not bully my child. Do not tell me what you think you know because you don’t know that every other Friday she sees someone.”

Kramer and her husband, Mike Caussin, welcomed their daughter in 2016. Jolie became a big sister in November 2018 when the singer gave birth to their son, Jace.
