People Are Feeling Sad For Cindy Crawford As Her "Spoiled" Son Presley Gets A Face Tattoo

Date February 11, 2020 10:04

Presley Gerber has something to tell the world. And he decided to say it with ink on his face. But as it turns out, people are not very happy about this.

A career in modeling

It's not that big of a surprise that Presley Gerber, Cindy Crawford's son, caught the modeling bug. His sister Kaia has been thriving in the modeling world and it's a safe bet that their supermodel mom taught them everything they needed to know.

Presley made his runway debut in 2016. Thanks to his chiseled jawline, his well-angle features and a striking resemblance to his gorgeous mother, he was certainly made for the job. Interestingly enough, this wasn't his first choice in terms of career.

The 20-year-old once shared that he "definitely had no idea" he would be a model.

I knew I wanted to start a business. I thought I was going to go to college till about senior year [in high school] and then I started modeling. It introduced me to a whole new world and I’m kind of taking it from there.

This 'whole new world' he chose to go into also meant that he has been able to garner loads of fans who almost always have something to say about any new update.

'Misunderstood' face tattoo

Fans were shocked to see Presley showing off a tattoo of the word 'MISUNDERSTOOD' right underneath his eye.

Presley, who's no stranger to tattoos, also has some ink on his hand and neck which were displayed in the photo as well.

Reactions

Not many people approved of this new face ink, though. In fact, they slammed Presley for this decision while also feeling bad for his mother and how she must be feeling about it.

@ki.mber.ly:

When you wanted to tattoo "rich, spoiled white kid" on your face, but it wouldn't fit.

@lilkook:

Spoiled rich bored child.

@mod_life_crisis:

Face tats are definitely "Job Stoppers", but then he's rich and privileged and will likely never need a "real" job. Methinks he'll regret this in the future, when he's older & wiser than just one year past his teens!

@johnnyaction:

Spoiled rich kid trying to be tough with terrible tattoos. Oh the irony.

@otbmwjeff:

Privileged white boy pretending. A lot of people feel sorry for mother:

@neely_nicole:

My condolences to your mom. 😔

@design_renovation_management:

My heart hurts for his parents ( if this is real). A Mom brings a perfect baby in the world. She loves them so unconditionally, parents provide for them, gives them what they can. One thing we can’t give is confidence. @presleygerber you broke your Mother’s heart. I hope it’s a publicity stunt and it’s fake.

@animg88:

Cindy must be in tears right now.

@saucyakl:

Poor parents, rich spoiled and childish! Grow up.

A supportive mom

Is Cindy Crawford mad about her son's tattoo? Well, we can't say that for sure. What we do know is that she has been completely supportive of both Presley and his sister Kaia's modeling careers.

She once revealed to TownandCountry that she was acting as her children's manager but she hoped to "empower" them to make career decisions on their own.

Kaia also once revealed to Vogue that growing up in a supportive environment where they were not left out of important discussions or made to feel like little children helped to boost her confidence.

Some facts about the Gerber kids

  • Kaia first gained worldwide attention when she was 10 years old thanks to a Versace ad that saw her wearing a leather jacket and miniskirt.
  • She has since walked on the runway for designers like Fendi, Chanel, Prada, Alexander Wang, and Marc Jacobs.
  • Presley's runway experience includes Burberry, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein.

We can definitely see why Presley's tattoo invited such strong reactions. However, even though people disapproved of it, the young man was simply doing what he wanted. And considering that he's technically an adult, no one can fault him for that. As for Cindy, she has always been on her children's side and we imagine she won't be too upset to seem him learning to express himself. Tattoos may not be everyone's cup of tea but it really isn't our business what Presley chooses to do.
