It’s been just over a week since Luke Perry passed away and we’re still in shock. Co-stars past and present, family, friends and fans posted all kinds of tributes on social media, and shared memories of Perry being an all-around great guy, which only makes the loss that much harder. So we can’t even imagine what it’s been like for his children.

Luke’s son, Jack Perry, took a couple of days before writing about his father. His younger sister, Sophie Perry, didn’t exactly know what to say about her dad, so instead she simply thanked everyone for their love and shared how grateful she is for it.

On Friday, International Women’s Day, Sophie took to Instagram again and posted a photo of her and her mom, Minnie Sharp, honouring the woman who raised her. Sophie prefaced her entire caption with a shoutout to her dad, and wrote that her mom is the “rock for everybody grieving in this family right now.” But, for some reason, people weren’t happy with it. If you dig deep into the mire of the comments, she was criticized for her NSFW language, while some fans actually believe they are grieving more than members of his family and Sophie doesn’t seem to have been close to her dad at all.

No, really.

So (and we can’t believe she had to do this), to prove to everyone that she is going through the worst time of her life and the most awful thing any child has to go through, Sophie made a new post explaining her feelings. Not that she had to prove just how devastated she is, but maybe it’ll shut people up?

Since my dad died I have received a lot of attention online. And most of it has been positive but of course, some people just can’t be nice. And I’m here to say that I did not ask for this attention, I did not ask to be thrown into some virtual spotlight, and while I don’t mean to offend anybody, I’m also not going to cater to any one else’s needs and beliefs. I’m 18. I swear like a sailor and sometimes I dress like a hooker. And I support causes and you may not. And most importantly. I am going to laugh and smile and live my normal life. YES I am hurt and sad and crying and beside myself with what happened to my dad. It’s the worst thing to ever happen in my life. And I am torn the fuck up over it. But I’m not going to sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet has deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise. And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldnt want me to. So you shouldn’t either. So to those of you shaming me for my language and my wardrobe and most disgustingly, my grieving process, do us both the favor and just unfollow. It’s a waste of both of your time.

This poor girl. She’s only 18 and doesn’t deserve the crap she’s getting from some really horrible, thoughtless people. Shamed for swearing, the way she dresses and, worst of all, the way she’s grieving? That’s downright despicable. People grieve in different ways, and at different times. As long as she’s getting love and support right now, that’s all that matters. Now is the time for her and her family to be left alone to figure out their new normal. Let’s give them that.
