A photo of actress Olivia Wilde sharing a sweet moment and a little love with her 3-year-old son is delighting many on social media — while making others cringe. She recently posted a photo showing her son, Otis, giving her a peck on the lips during the boy’s bath time. “Finding hope in this,” she wrote in the post, which went up last week in the wake of the nation’s deadliest mass shooting. The post received more 113,000 likes, but it initially brought out criticism from people who said they found the moment inappropriate. “It’s gross,” one person wrote, while another added: “Kissing your kid like your husband. It’s not good for him.” That led to a flood of positive comments thanking Wilde for posting the picture — and questioning why anyone would find such a moment between mother and child awkward or unnatural. “Perfectly normal adorable kiss pic. Haters gonna hate. Keep up the love. It’s beautiful,” one person wrote. Many others shared that they also kiss their children, from toddlers to adults, on the lips, too.
