There’s probably no actress who’s safe from fans’ harsh critiques and opinions and the judgment of a free world. And the little Marvel movie star Lexi Rabe is evidently facing some herself.
Lexi left us all wowed with her incredibly cute performance in Avengers: Endgame as Tony Stark’s daughter. And she left us all sobbing with “I love you three thousand.” (Ouch. My heart.) But some people have been cyber-bullying her, and the seven-year-old actress responded with this small video and a little plea from her mom on Instagram.
Lexi Rabe’s Plea
No specific instances of bullying were quoted, but it must’ve been pretty bad, and it’s not the first time. The caption read, “yet again Lexi’s getting bullied.” Her mom, Jessica also wrote, “This kind of thing makes it celebrities never want to leave the house never want to meet people. Please keep your opinions to yourself so Lexi can grow up in the free world. She’s a normal human being and she’s a child.”
In the video, the little actress said, “I mess up sometimes, so my mum and dad give me tonnes of talking to and time outs. Believe me. If I go anywhere and acting a little silly or messed up or anything like that, I’m just seven years old. Please don’t bully my family. Or me. Bye, love you 3000.”
She touched all our hearts with that one.
Her little post saw the internet rise in a tide of support. From the more spontaneous responses such as ‘people are garbage’ to the caring ‘sweet girl, this entire fandom will protect you,’ we saw a ton of fervour. Fans even got angry on her behalf, taking to social media to write, “Whoever is bullying her is facing all of us” and even went as far as to make her a little online ‘protection squad.’

The cyber-bullies might want to think again with that.
