“Hi everybody. I find myself having to come to wife’s defense yet again,” he said in a video posted on Tuesday. “I’m really disappointed because she’s catching flak and being dragged for doing a live meet and greet. People are upset that, given the current situation we’re in in the lockdown and the coronavirus, that she’s ‘charging’ people money to do a meet and greet.”

He went on to explain that “a company approached her” and suggested the idea of a meet and greet for entertainment and to bring “levity and fun and humor” to the situation we are all dealing with. However, because it’s Tori Spelling doing the meet and greet, that haters were going to attack her.

“Instead, because it’s Tori Spelling, she gets dragged and she gets the haters coming down on her for simply doing something to entertain people, but more importantly, to provide for her family,” Dean added. “What is wrong with that? What is wrong with providing for your family at this time? All the studios, everything is shut down. She has no way to work like everybody else. She has no job to go to. So, why can she not work from home and do a live meet and greet with fans and give them some light and love and have some fun? There are numerous celebrities out there that post stuff and influencers, and they’re out there making money every single day. But no, let’s drag Tori Spelling. Let’s give her a hard time.

“My wife is one of the hardest working women in the business and she is simply providing for her family. So everybody needs to back off and just take a breath and relax,” he said. “I don’t know how many times I’ve had to come on here and tell people to chill out. She’s a wonderful person; she’s providing for her family. But Tori Spelling always, always gets the haters and gets dragged. And this is the other thing: You know what? It used to be cancel culture; now it’s drag culture and this has to stop, too. You have to stop dragging people. She’s simply trying to make a living, trying to provide for her family and provide some entertainment. You want to drag some people? Why not drag people who are making millions of dollars doing this? And how do you know she’s not giving part of this to charity?”

He continues by sharing what a wonderful person his wife is and how she stops to talk to fans as she’s out doing her daily errands.

“You know what people don’t see my wife do. People don’t see my wife spend 20 minutes in a grocery store with a fan or taking a phone call because she’s been recognized. Nobody sees all the stuff that she does on her own time, even with her family in tow. She has time for everybody and all her fans. So stop the dragging. Stop it, it’s ridiculous. Let people be. This is a difficult time and w’ere all trying to do our best. So let’s show a little love and compassion out there. Everybody’s all about love and ‘we’re all in this together,'” he continued. “So, let’s be in this together. And if people are making money and making a living—influencing or doing meet and greets or doing videos—let them alone. Would you go to someone’s house who is a computer programmer who’s working from home and say, ‘Hey man, why don’t you do this for free because of the situation we’re in?’ No, you wouldn’t. But no, because it’s Tori Spelling, you think it’s OK to do. Well, you know what? I’m here to tell you it stops now. Stop the dragging and get off my wife’s back. Because we are all in this together with love, and light, and fun, and entertainment, and compassion and empathy. Stop the dragging now.”

Tori and Dean share five children together, Liam, 13; Stella, 11; Hattie, 8; Finn, 7, and Beau, 3.
