Tarek El Moussa is responding to rude social media trolls for making fun of his knee-high compression socks, which he needs for a medical condition.
It all started with a photo the “Flip or Flop” star posted on Instagram on Friday, from his trip with his wife Heather Rae Young to Dubai.
In the photo, El Moussa is wearing black knee socks and black sneakers.
This led to some nasty comments teasing the socks and she responded in a now deleted post shared on Young’s Instagram Stories.
“The first comments on that post of mine are about my socks … not how beautiful Dubai is or anything substantial,” he wrote, including screenshots of some of the comments.
“Instead of judging immediately why don’t you consider alternatives first. I wear these socks because I have suffered from joint veins and when I fly I have to wear them to prevent blood clots from forming, “he explained.
“I have thick skin, so go say whatever you want, but in the future you may want to rethink judging someone for wearing something that helps them physically,” he concluded.
