In a since-deleted Instagram post uploaded by Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox, whom Green is currently separated from, called her husband out in the comments for portraying her as an "absent mother" on social media. In her deleted comment, Fox accused Green of using their children to spin a negative narrative about their current familial situation.

On November 1st, Green posted a photo of himself and his and Fox's 4-year-old son Journey, both in their Halloween costumes. The caption was, "Hope you all had a good Halloween!!" Green and Fox also share sons Noah and Bodhi, but both were absent in the post in question.

"Why does Journey have to be in this picture?" Fox commented. "It's not hard to crop them out. Or choose photos that they aren't in."

She continued, "I had a great halloween with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media. I know you love your kids. But I don't know why you can't stop using them to posture via Instagram."

"You're so intoxicated with feeding the pervasive narrative that I'm an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year," Fox wrote. "You have them half of the time. Congratulations you truly are a remarkable human! Why do you need the internet to echo back to you what should be inexhaustibly evident in the way your children love you?"

Though the post is now deleted, several outlets, including the @CommentsByCelebs Instagram page, caught it before Green took the post down.

Green then replaced his original post with another pic from Halloween, sans kids. He has yet to comment on the prior post and Fox's comment.

Fox, who is currently dating Machine Gun Kelly, seemingly received support from Green's ex-wife and the mother of his 18-year-old son Kassius, Vanessa Marcil, who posted a note to Instagram that reads, "Like I said....The Truth always comes out in the end...." Marcil tagged her post #ImWithYouSister.

Though it's difficult to know what's going on behind the scenes of this relationship (and truth be told, it's none of our business), a public statement like this from one party to another is hard to ignore. Hopefully, Fox and Green can work out an agreement when it comes to posting about their kids online in an offline setting.
