Amber Rose has hit back at critics of her decision to dye her young son’s hair.

The model shared an image of her four-year-old son Sebastian on Instagram last night, revealing that she’d dyed his hair to a bleach blonde shade similar to her own.

“My twin,” she captioned the snap.

The image garnered over 410,000 likes but annoyed some followers.

“Poor kid,” wrote one commenter.

“Why would you do that to that little boy?” asked another.

In a new post, Amber responded to the trolls by saying he’d “begged” her to let him have his hair like hers.

“He begged me for a whole year to dye his hair blonde like mine so we started with a little patch and I told him when he turns 5 I will make him a full blonde like his mommy,” she wrote.

“He will be 5 on the 21st of February!

“He’s so happy and none of you dirty little trolls can take that away from him or me! P.S. Love your children unconditionally and let them be creative, this world will be a better place.”

Sebastian is Amber’s only child. She and ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, welcomed him in 2013.

She’s previously said that she’s raising her son to be a feminist.

“I don’t hide things from my son. He is only 4-yearsold. But even still, I talk to him about a lot of things. As far as women, one of the things I do is talk to him about my period. My son knows what a period is.”
