Presley Gerber strikes back at critics of his face tattoo on Instagram

Presley Gerber strikes back at critics of his face tattoo while seemingly complaining about PC culture

He was bombarded with a stream of criticism after getting the word ‘misunderstood’ tattooed on his face last month.

Presley Gerber returned to defending the prominent ink Wednesday in a message posted to his Instagram Stories.

The 20-year-old model complained that people ‘hate me,’ and seemed to compare his situation to the discrimination faced by transgender people.

Feeling unloved: Presley Gerber defended the ‘misunderstood’ face tattoo he got last month in a bizarre Instagram rant in which he complained that ‘people love to hate me’

Unlike earlier defenses of the tattoo on Instagram Live, Presley shared his latest mini rant in text form to his Insta Stories.

‘Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it’s offensive to say anything in today’s day in age but I get a little face tattoo and now people to love hate me.. Hmmmm? [sic]’ he wrote.

The bizarre statement seemed to compare the negative reactions he got to the tattoo to the discrimination that transgender people receive.

It also appeared to conflate gender reconfirmation surgery with purely cosmetic procedures including ‘face lifts’ and ‘lip injections.’

Recently, Presley’s antics have caused concern among his parents, supermodel Cindy Crawford and businessman Rande Gerber.  

Last month, an insider told Us Weekly: ‘Presley is obviously going through a super rebellious phase right now’

‘He is trying to get out of the shadow of his family and find his own way and create his own identity. He also likes the attention he’s been getting, even if negative, from his tattoo and recent posts.’

Apparently, being the older brother to rising model Kaia Gerber doesn’t help the journey to self discovery either. 

The source added: ‘Presley feels like there’s a lot of pressure on him because his parents and Kaia are so successful, and Kaia is thought of as a “sweetheart.”

‘And Cindy and Rande have such respected reputations in everything they do. He wants to do his own thing and find his own place in the world.’
