When you document your life on social media, you open yourself up to the comments and opinions of the entire world, and this can prove tough for celebrities – as Tamara Ecclestone and husband Jay Rutler learned this week.


The couple have hit back at criticism from Instagram followers who yesterday took issue with the fact that their daughter, two-year-old Sophia, appeared too tanned in their holiday photos.


The family are currently holidaying in the Bahamas and have been happily sharing snaps from their stunning beach-side break.



However, a close-up shot of a bronzed Sophia caused quite the stir in the comment section of Tamara’s Instagram post.


While some suggested that the two-year-old looked ‘sunburnt’, one person commented: “Should a baby really be tanned, though?”


Clearly irritated by the comments, dad Jay was the first to directly respond to his wife’s followers, writing: “In other news, it’s called a filter. Thanks for your ‘concern’ though.”

Keen to settle the issue, meanwhile, mum Tamara added: “For all you busy-bodies commenting on Sophia’s tan, she is not burnt in the slightest. [She] has been wearing factor 70 and kept out of the midday sun. She is a lucky girl that tans quickly. Nonetheless, I am fully aware of the dangers of the sun, and she has never burnt. What can I say, Jay is partial to a filter.”


What do you think of Jay and Tamara’s responses?
