An American magazine recently featured Suri Cruise - the daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise - and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt - the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt - on their front cover.

The magazine, which did not censor either of the eight-year-old children’s faces, also published a sensational story about their alleged “bizarre worlds.”

Now Jack Osbourne, who famously appeared in reality show The Osbournes as a teenager, has lashed out at the magazine, accusing them of ‘child abuse’.

He shared a picture of the controversial cover on his Instagram, taking care to blur the children’s faces.

He wrote angrily: “This is so sick.

“Shame on you… they are children. Let them be children.”

Jack continued: “It's one thing to have parents permission but it's another to take liberty and do this without anyone's consent.

“This is abuse.”

He finished firmly: “I blurred their faces because I refuse to perpetuate this sick trend.”

Jack is a father himself, so it is easy to see why he feels so passionately about this subject.

He welcomed his first child, a daughter named Pearl, with partner Lisa Stelly in April 2012.
