Popular art designer, Ava Phillipe has made it known to fans and followers that: “her Instagram profile is not a place for cruelty/hate speech,” and that she intend to do what she can to keep it that way.

On Jan. 12 the 22-year-old daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe wrote on her Instagram Story, ” I can and will always block profiles commenting bigoted/hateful messages under my post.

“My Instagram page is not a place for hate speech/cruel behaviour, and I personally intend to do my possible best to keep it that way. Peace & Love.”

It was unclear why she didn’t specify which message she meant, but this happened days after she participated in an Instagram Q&A and was asked if she likes boys or girls. She said: “I’m attracted to… people!” the star replied and added, “Gender is whatever” in a parenthetical.”

Ava and Owen Mahoney made their romance Instagram official in 2019, giving her 999,000 followers a few glimpses into their romance over the years.

Ava tried to prove her choice and opinion right and how she felt after she made the statement saying “It makes me feel good, in more ways than one, to be able to share and be real with people on social media as much as is possible,”

She further explained, detailing reasons and facts about her personal opinion “We do see a lot of the falsified sides [of people] or the facades, and it’s just not completely true of everyone, and I think a little truth is good sometimes.”

During the interview she was asked about the best beauty lessons she has learnt from her mom Reese,who shares 8-year-old son Tennessee Toth with Ava’s step dad and husband Jim Toth, the 22-year-old didn’t skip a beat.

She didn’t mince words about how good her mom is, saying: “The first thing that comes to mind, and it’s really special to me honestly, is ‘pretty is as pretty does,” she said.

“So as pretty as you ever look on the outside, you’re only as pretty as you are inside and the way that you treat other people – and if that’s not a beauty tip, I don’t know what is.”
