Sharna Burgess is speaking out against the act of using face-altering filters on kids.

The “Dancing With The Stars” alum and Brian Austin Green welcomed a son, Zane, in 2022, and since then, the mom of one has been all over her son, showering him with love. 

Being a mother herself, Burgess was fired up when she saw a video of a kid using a filter that altered her face. Not one to hold back, Burgess took to Instagram to criticize the act.

Accompanying the video, Burgess ranted, “I just saw someone that had this filter on several videos of their child. A beautiful young girl, maybe eight years old.” 

Burgess continued expressing irritation towards the act, saying, “Congratulations on giving your kid insecurities about her already perfect face. This s**t fires me up.” She asked her followers to try the filter and note the changes it made. 

The mom of one also shared a video of her natural face, which was a clear contrast to the video with the filter. “For the record, this is my face this morning. No makeup and no filter,” Burgess announced. She zoomed the camera a bit to show her skin and then some scratches, which she said were made by Zane.

However, one fan slid into Burgess' DM claiming that the Tv host didn’t practice what she preached as she also used filters in her videos and pictures. In response to the claim, the 37-year-old made a video explaining the type of filter she uses.

“The only filters that I use are the ones that are not altering my face," the pro dancer said. "There are some ones that do a little coloring or a little smoothening, but they absolutely do not change my face; make my lips big or my nose small, my jaw narrow or my eyes bigger. I absolutely would never use that.”

The Australian stated that putting such a filter on a kid was “just awful.” Before the clip ended, she reiterated that she only uses subtle filters.

However, it wasn't all negative for the Australian native, who revealed that she managed to find balance in the chaos. She wrote, “Finding time and balance is the new skill I’m trying to master. I wouldn’t change a single thing, though, I’m obsessed with life and everything in it.”
