    Jesse Tyler Ferguson Clapped Back At Someone Who Called His Baby's Name "Stupid" And I'm Here For It

    "I guess this sentiment faded fast."

    In case you missed it, Jesse Tyler Ferguson is no longer only a dad on Modern Family! Jesse and hubby Justin Mikita welcomed a baby on July 7.

    They named their new baby "Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita," which has a special meaning to the couple:

    Justin and I appreciate all the kind words about our new little bundle of joy, Beckett Mercer Ferguson-Mikita! We have always loved the name Beckett and the middle name, Mercer is the street in NYC where we got married almost 7 years ago! We are so thrilled to be new dads!

    Good thing they didn't get married somewhere nondescript like, "57th Street."

    However, because the internet is the internet, not everyone had nice things to say. One Instagram user took the time out of their day to comment on People's announcement, saying, "What a stupid name, seriously."

    In response, Jesse scrolled back through the user's posts and noted a touch of hypocrisy:

    BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. Jesse commented on the user's post itself, which had a photo of Melania Trump and the Obamas, Clintons, and Bushes at Barbara Bush's funeral. Is it a little petty? Yes. Am I also here for it? Yes.

    And, if Instagram stories are anything to go by, it looks like Jesse was pretty pleased by his own response:

    All the best to Jesse, Justin, and Beckett!
