'Modern Family' Star Julie Bowen Criticized After Barron Trump Tweets

Julie Bowen is facing a firestorm of criticism after making jokes about Donald and Melania Trump's youngest son, Barron, over Instagram during the inauguration.

I think Barron is on his Gameboy. Can't say I can blame him.

The Modern Family mom first attacked the demeanor of the 10-year-old saying, "I think Barron is on his Gameboy. Can't say I blame him," she said with a picture of Barron looking down during the ceremony.

The next photo showed Barron looking distressed as he held his head with his hands. "Barron, a voting majority shares your horror. #Barronforpresident."

Next, Barron was seen rubbing his eye, in which the star wrote, "When your dad is boppin' his head to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. #dadshame."

Lastly, Bowen called out CNN when Barron got cut out of the frame.

"Hey @CNN! Don't box the Barron!"

Although it seems as though it was all fun and games to the actress, multiple users didn't see the humor.

"Boo! I used to like you and follow your Instagram! Unfollowing and not watching @abcmodernfam anymore," one user wrote.

Another added, "Just because you don't like his dad, don't poke fun at the kid. I used to like you Julie. Grow up!"

Bowen eventually caught wind of the Instagram and Twitter storm and replied to a fan saying, "I love that Barron is just being a kid. My kids would be a horror show at a public event! Just trying to keep it light."
