Katie Price has defended her decision to create her son, Harvey, an Instagram account.

The reality star set up the social media account for the 16-year-old just days ago and was criticised by some of her fans for doing so, because of potential online abuse he may receive.

The mother-of-five has defended her decision though and said that he shouldn’t be stopped because of online trolls.

A rep for Katie told MailOnline: “Harvey is a 16-year-old boy who wants his own Instagram. Why should he be stopped by all the haters and trolls?”

“This is exactly why Katie is battling for Harvey’s Law- to stop this!” they added, as the 40-year-old recently won the backing from MP’s for Harvey’s Law.

The law aims to get tougher and more restrictive laws put in place for online abuse, with a main part of it being to make online abuse a criminal offence.

“Able-bodied 16-year-old boys have Instagram so what is the exception for Harvey?Β His friends at school, his family and his brother [Junior Andre] are all on Instagram and he wants his own account to post things he loves. Why should he be stopped?”

Harvey already has over 60,000 followers after the account wasΒ  made on Sunday.
