Garcelle Beauvais’ son Jax has an important message for online haters.
On Wednesday, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star took to social media to share a statement from her 14-year-old after he faced a series of hateful comments from internet trolls.
“I’d like to start off by saying that I am still a kid and wish to not be viewed as a fully matured adult,” he began, “because I am not one.”
“It is currently my first week of high school and, instead of enjoying it like most kids at my school, I have to deal with being attacked on social media,” Jax continued. “I did not sign up for this show, nor do I have anything to do with the show’s drama. I just want to be a normal kid.”
He stated that the purpose of his Instagram account “is not for publicity nor the public’s gaze, but to be seen by my peers as just another kid.”
Jax revealed that he made his account private, due to being spammed by cruel remarks, although he “really wanted to avoid” it.
“The constant support from everyone makes it much more tolerable,” he wrote. “However, middle aged women spamming me with racist and crude comments about my family is not what I expected for my first week of high school.”
The teenager concluded his message with a sincere thank-you to everyone who shared “positive comments,” expressing that it “truly means a lot.”

The candid note comes just one day after Beauvais took a stand against online hate, protecting her family and son after Jax begged commenters to leave him alone.
“I’m usually a very strong woman I’ve been raised to be strong my life has taught me to be strong but when it comes to my kids!” the reality TV star wrote on Twitter.

“It hurts it’s not OK I’ve been in tears all night it’s just a TV show people scream at your TV throw something at your TV but leave our kids alone #RHOBH” she continued in Tuesday’s post.
Her tweet came after Jax shared an image in his Instagram Stories of the negative comments directed to him on social media.
“im a f—ing 14 year old leave me alone please,” he wrote over a screenshot of hateful comments meant for his mother.
Some of the comments were also about Jax’ brother Oliver’s struggle with his drug addiction.
Beauvais shared the same message asking fans to stop to her Instagram.
Her “RHOBH” co-star Crystal Kung Minkoff commented in support, writing, “LEAVE THEM ALONE”.
Lisa Rinna echoed the message of leaving the members of the show alone with her own statement on Instagram.
“We are doing a TV show. We try to entertain you – why can’t you treat it like wrestling for gods sakes love us – love to hate us But leave the kids alone!” she wrote. “What I was just sent about [Garcelle’s] son is disgusting and unacceptable. What I heard happen to [Kyle Richards’ daughter Portia] is disgusting and unacceptable. What you’ve said and done to my own kids disgusting.”
She continued, “The threats to [Erika Jayne’s] son!?!! And I’m sure all of the other beautiful children. They didn’t sign up for this. What are doing?! The kids – all of our kids should be off limits so stop it now. Enough is enough.”
