Charlize Theron Criticised for Dressing-Up Son as Princess Elsa

Charlize Theron has copped a barrage of insults on social media after she dressed her adopted son up as his favourite princess, Elsa from Frozen.

Images of four-year-old Jackson wearing a blonde wig and a dress sent Twitter into a spin with people slamming the actress for using her child to make a political statement about gender.

The stunt certainly backfired for Charlize with some labelling her racist for adopting a black child and then dressing him up as a white girl.



The award-winning actress adopted Jackson from her homeland South Africa and has been vocal about his love of princesses in the past. Earlier this year, she told Jimmy Kimmel of his obsession with Elsa, but it seems allowing him to dress up as the character was a step too far for some.

However, after Charlize’s parenting made headlines around the world,  many were quick to defend the actress and her son. 





Charlize is yet to respond.
