7-year old actress Lexi Rabe has been the victim of bullying online and out in public. Rabe portrayed Tony Stark’s daughter in Avengers: Endgame and made Marvel Cinematic Universe fans from all over the world tear up with her “I love you 3000” line. On her personal Instagram account, which is run by her mother Jessica, the young actress posted a video where she is explaining her behavior out in public and stating that she is not perfect. This is really not something any 7-year old should have to be doing.
Jessica Rabe does not go into any specific instances of the bullying in her lengthy message posted at the bottom of Lexi’s video. She insinuates that people have treated them badly in public, possibly for not stopping to give autographs. She also insinuates Alexandra Rachael Rabe is starting to become self-conscious in public due to this bullying. As for the cyber bullying, it looks like Jessica and Lexi’s followers have gone through and reported all of the negative comments, at least according to one fan who has been keeping track.
Anyone who feels the need to bully a 7-year old girl should really get themselves straightened out. Some MCU fans are angry with her for things that are out of her control (like the possible whitewashing of Ironheart), which doesn’t stop them from leaving offensive messages on her social media accounts. Whatever the case may be, it’s good to know there are some fans out there helping Jessica Rabe to clean up her daughter’s Instagram account. If fans are approaching a 7-year old kid for an autograph, be polite even if she/he does not want to sign it.
Since Lexi Rabe’s mother posted the video, fans have been coming out and helping to report the bullying, which then deletes the comment. She also posted a picture of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark warning potential bullies to go somewhere else. Bullying on social media has caused some adult stars to leave the platform. Star Wars actresses Kelly Marie Tran and Daisy Ridley deleted their accounts after the toxic fandom became too much. Imagine what that negativity can do to a kid who is only 7-years old. Elsewhere on her account, it seems she and her family are living a pretty normal life, except for the red carpets and Hollywood sets.
In addition to Avengers: Endgame, Lexi Rabe also starred in this year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which means she was in two movies that were in the top ten at the box office at the same time. As of this writing, Endgame is currently the second highest grossing movie of all time and is getting close to taking down James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time. Rabe has accomplished a lot more before the age of 8 than most people accomplish in their whole lives. You can check out the bullying post below, thanks to Lexi Rabe’s Instagram account.
