Alicia Silverstone is catching heat after revealing that she still bathes with her 9-year-old son, Bear. Opening up to The New York Times in a recent interview, the "Clueless" star spoke out about spending quality time with her child while being stuck at home but her bath comment is causing a lot of fans to pause. "My son and I take baths together, and when he’s not with me, I take a bath and that really feels nourishing and comforting,” she told the outlet.

Called 'Sick' & 'Weird'


While Alicia Silverstone also hit on topics like living a vegan diet and playing in the yard with her son, the only memorable comment from the interview was the bath one. Fans immediately erupted on Twitter following the headlines with several slamming the star, claiming it's "sick" and "weird."

"What in the he’ll is wrong with her? Alicia Silverstone bathing with her 9 year old son?" one person sounded off. "Is she still chewing food and spitting it into his mouth? This is an episode of #Dateline just waiting to happen."

Twitter Sounds Off:


"I'm sorry, no one has a problem with this? This is just plain sick!" added another. Some went as far as calling Alicia Silverstone a "pedophile."

"Alicia Silverstone... Another sick Hollywood pedophile. Incest. Bitch nasty," someone wrote. Others just don't understand and can't get onboard. "I don’t know how Alicia Silverstone is able to still bathe with her 9 year old. I can no longer get dressed in front of my 3 year old because he’s constantly asking to touch my 'boops,'" wrote another.

Is It Normal?


People are floored over her comment. "I'd lose my shit if this happened in my house. No adult is bathing with our 9 year old; mom, dad, grandma or grandpa! Wtf?! Vegans should speak out to Alicia Silverstone on this. Isn't this illegal in California?" a Twitter user questioned. Others aren't surprised based on the fact that she used to regurgitate Bear's food bird style.

"Alicia Silverstone used to feed Bear Blu 'baby bird style.' She would chew up food in her mouth and then drop it into his mouth," remembers another.

This isn't the first time her parenting habits have been questioned by fans. In 2012, Alicia Silverstone made headlines after posting a video showing her chewing Bear's food then spitting it into his mouth. People went nuts over the footage and couldn't help but question the star.

She swung back at criticism, defending her actions. “People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years," she explained. “It’s a weaning process. It’s just a thing that has been going on for thousands of years and I didn’t think I was inventing anything."
