Tommy Lee used Father's Day as an opportunity to honor his dad, but also fan the flames of his ongoing public feud with his son Brandon Lee and Pamela Anderson.
Tommy shared an old photo of himself with his father on Instagram and wrote a long post about the difficulties of being a father. He wrote, "My father taught me to respect everyone and everything and to take care of those that I loved. He taught me to appreciate my possessions, and to be grateful for the things I was given. I’ve [messed] up at times but I’ve always bounced back."
He continued, "Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things. If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind. I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood .... I love my boys but they can be [A-holes] too...and that’s the truth."
Brandon read the post and immediately shot back with one of his own. He wrote, "You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. If you think we're so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me. I'm twice the man you'll ever be." He added, "Just move on dude ... WE ALL HAVE. Or I'll put you right back to sleep," referring to when he knocked him out back in March.
