We Love You 3000, Lexi! Let No Bully Tell You That You’re Not Perfect
Lexi Rabe, the girl who plays Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) daughter Morgan in the film Avengers: Endgame, is just seven but has been dealing with people bullying her both online and in public. The seven-year-old, who made the adorable quote “I love you 3000” one key and impactful identity of the film, was seen voicing up to the people who are bullying her with no definitive reason. In a video posted on her Instagram account – which is run by her mother Jessica – the Marvel Cinematic Universe child actor has asked people to stop bullying her and her family. She reminds them that she is only seven years old.
The caption of the video reads: “I hate that we even have to post this. But yet again Lexi’s getting bullied. And these kinds of thing make celebrities never want to leave the house and never want to meet people. 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.”
The video doesn’t give out much details but it seems Lexi and her family are facing issues in public when dealing with people looking for autographs or others commenting on the general behaviour of the seven-year-old.
She further added, “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. If your child is so scared to be themselves in public and mess up a little then you’re over parenting. We give our children plenty of rules and boundaries. But then give them the freedoms to mess up and learn from their own mistakes. They would not be on set on movies if they weren’t well behaved. Trust me they have no desire to hire kids like that! And there were plenty of children that productions can work with.”
“If your child is so scared to be themselves in public and mess up a little then you’re over parenting.”
“So if you see us in public and think you have the right to judge. Wait. Number one until you have children of your own, and Number two realize that we’re not perfect and we’re not claiming to be! But just try to realize the different strokes for different folks what you do with your kids may work for you and what I do with my kids’ works well for me. My children love me and respect me even if they act out sometimes. Thank you! Jessica!” the caption concludes.
Lexi was also recently seen in Godzilla: King of the Monsters playing the role of a young Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown’s character). She’s also been cast alongside Cole Sprouse and Alexandra Shipp in the upcoming Silk Road.
Morgan became fans’ favourite baby Avenger. We love you 3000, Lexi! And, we are sorry that you have to go through this traumatic situation. (Leave the kid be, you idiots! She is just seven.)
