Fans Are Freaking Out Over Louis Tomlinson's Baby Instagram For A Very Weird Reason

Zayn's not the only former One Direction member sharing photos of cute kids paired with tattoos.

Yesterday, Louis Tomlinson treated his Instagram followers to a sweet snap of him holding his infant son, Freddy. Tomlinson and his ex, Briana Jungwirth, welcomed the baby boy late last month.

As you can plainly see, the British singer is shirtless and showing off many of his tattoos while on dad duty. And this, apparently, has fired up a controversy about tattoo removal and photoshopping in the comments section.

Rather than commenting on what a precious "lad-and-dad" photo it is, fans are up in arms about whether or not Tomlinson had certain ink removed, went to the trouble to airbrush a few out, or is just hiding them under a baby blanket. Accusations are also flying about his entire head being photoshopped. Guess there wasn't anything good on TV yesterday.

Some sample comments:

"I've seen your head on another, much older photo, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong."

"It's Photoshop cause he doesn't have the 78 tattoo [or] the knife one."

"Lol ur not fooling me. I can see the difference in shade from your neck to your chest."

Then, there are those commenters who refuse to believe that Freddy is actually Tomlinson's son. With fans like these, who needs haters?
