The Till Death star's 8-year-old child is the target of online bullies.

Megan Fox is at her fiercest when it comes to protecting her kids from bullies, whether they're people online or other kids at school.

In an interview with InStyle, Fox touched on the subject of parenting her three children, which she shares with ex Brian Austin Green: Noah Shannon, 8; Bodhi Ransom, 7; and Journey River, 4. During the interview, she revealed that Noah has been the target of online bullying by "mean, awful people and cruel people."

Fox explained how important it was for her to protect Noah from seeing what these people, who are bullying a child, have to say about him. "I don't want him to ever have to read that s--- because he hears it from little kids at his own school who are like, 'Boys don't wear dresses,'" said Fox.

This isn't the first time the Till Death star has talked about Noah being picked on by his classmates for what he chooses to wear. During an interview with The Talk in 2019, the actor shared that her eldest son is "really into fashion" and chooses his own clothes for school, including dresses. "I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there -- here in California -- he still has little boys going, 'Boys don't wear dresses,' or 'Boys don't wear pink,'" recalled Fox. "So we're going through that now, where I'm trying to teach him to be confident no matter what anyone else says," she added.

"He just wore one two days ago to school, and he came home and I was like, 'How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?'" she asked. "And he was like, 'Well, all the boys laughed when I came in, but I don't care, I love dresses too much.'"
