Ava Phillippe has hit back at those who sent her "hateful messages" after she discussed her sexuality.

On Monday, the 22-year-old, who is the daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, responded to fan questions via her Instagram Stories. At one point, a fan asked whether she prefers dating "boys or girls" and she replied, "I'm attracted to...people! (Gender is whatever)."

A few days later, Phillippe took to her Stories again, implying that she has received negative comments about her sexuality as a result of her post.

"QUICK REMINDER: I can & will block profiles commenting bigoted/hateful messages under my posts," she wrote against a black background. "My Instagram profile is not a place for cruelty/hate speech."

Phillippe signed off by writing that she "intends to keep it that way" and wished her fans "peace & love" alongside a peace sign emoji.
