"Misunderstood," indeed.

Cindy Crawford's son Presley Gerber is sounding off (again) on the "hate" over his face tattoo.

The 20-year-old model shared an Instagram story on Wednesday, bemoaning the negative attention he got after getting the word "misunderstood" tattooed on his right cheekbone.

"Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it's offensive to say anything in today's day in age but I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate me..Hmmmm?"

While his sentiment was likely meant to draw comparisons to surgeries and physical alterations, it should be noted that gender is a social construct, not anatomical and has nothing to do with what he's referring to.

Shortly after getting the tattoo, Gerberresponded to the backlash in an Instagram Live, telling followers, "If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing. It says misunderstood, because that’s how I felt my entire life…Look at these f—king haters out here. F—k you if you don’t like it."

After he debuted the new ink, reports (unconfirmed ones, to be fair) rolled in about how Crawford and husband Rande Gerber were "concerned" for their son.

"They truly want to make sure he is OK," a source told E!, adding that the entire family has "been trying to get Presley help since his DUI last year. Things have been very tense in the family."
