Hollywood actress Charlize Theron raised a few eyebrows after she was spotted dressing her 6-year-old adopted son Jackson as a girl in Los Angeles, prompting critics to question her intentions.
Rumors of Theron, who adopted Jackson from her native South Africa in 2012, raising her son as a girl have been swirling for years, but recent photos of the two out and about have proven them true.
According to celebrity blog Industry On Blast, Jackson would reportedly act out and throw tantrums about wanting to be dressed as a girl. The misbehavior got so bad that Charlize finally gave in.
Some critics suggest Charlize Theron is forcing her adopted son Jackson to dress as a girl.
“This is what happens when whites adopt Black children,” one person wrote.
“I feel like this b—h is doing some weird science/social experiment on this kid,” wrote another. “Trying to do the whole nature vs. nurture thing like they did in the ’60’s — which failed. I don’t like it at all.”
There were others who highlighted the importance of Black figures in young Jackson’s life, while others cited the recent deaths of three Black kids after their white adoptive mothers, who had a dark history of abuse, drove their car off a cliff last week.
