People Hating On Cute Photo Of Father & Son Are Shot Down For Being Petty

We live in a very, very strange world. It's a world where we expect men to be soft and gentle and kind (which is completely fair) but also expect them to have no emotions, not to cry, not to having fears or failings and apparently, not to hug their dad!

When Eric Owens posted a collage of photos of him hugging his son throughout his son's childhood and now late-teen/adult life, trolls came out of the woodwork to express their disapproval. Thankfully, many, many, MANY other people on the internet came to Owen's defence and said that we should be encouraging emotion in boys and men, rather than convincing them that showing familial affection is something to be ashamed of.

Check out how it all went down below.
