Megan Fox has criticised her estranged husband Brian Austin Green over a now-deleted Instagram post featuring their 4-year-old son Journey.

Brian recently uploaded a photo with his son in their Halloween outfits together, but the Transformers actress argued in the comments section that their child should have been cropped out and accused him of "feeding" a narrative that she's an "absent mother".

"Why does Journey have to be in this picture?" began Megan. "It's not hard to crop them out. Or choose photos that they aren't in. I had a great halloween with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media.

"I know you love your kids. But I don't know why you can't stop using them to posture via Instagram. You're so intoxicated with feeding the pervasive narrative that I'm an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year.

"You have them half of the time. Congratulations you truly are a remarkable human! Why do you need the internet to echo back to you what should be inexhaustibly evident in the way your children love you?"

Following Megan's response, Brian removed the original Instagram post and replaced it with a cropped version (pictured above) not featuring Journey.

"Hope you all had a happy Halloween!!!" his caption read.

Digital Spy has reached out to Brian's representatives for any further comment.

The pair, who confirmed their split earlier this year, also share two other kids from their 10-year marriage: Bodhi and Noah.
