Argentina's president-elect Alberto Fernández has repeatedly copped backlash over his son Estanislao. The son, 24, works in insurance and studies design and is also an Instagram famous model 'Dyhzy', known for his creative cosplay and drag outfits.

Most recently he has appeared dressed as Batman's Joker, a Spice Girl and Pikachu from Pokemon.

Last Sunday his father, center-left politician Fernández won the Argentina election, ousting conservative President Mauricio Macri. The new leader has gripped power at a time when the nation's economy is in turmoil.

Fernandez has championed LGBT issues and praised his son, calling him “a great man”.

“My son is a rights activist in that community. I would worry if my son was a criminal, but he is a great man,” he said in an interview in June.

LGBT rights in Argentina are some of the world's most advanced, with the country being the first in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage in 2010. But not everyone is happy about the new president's link to the LGBT community through his son.

Following his win, the son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro - Eduardo - responded by re-tweeting an image of himself holding a gun. He also compared himself with a photo of Estanislao dressed in a Pikachu costume.

“This is not a meme,” he commented.

Soon after, Estanislao responded in Portuguese, commenting: “Brazilian brothers, we are in this fight together. I love you” - he also included emojis of a rainbow flag and heart.

He then followed up with another tweet in Spanish. “Many people from Brazil began to follow me and I want to tell the LGBTTTIQQA + community and allies of Brazil that we are together in this fight,” he wrote on his own Twitter.

“Remember that love always conquers hatred and among us, we must always take care of ourselves,” he wrote.

Trolls have blasted Estanislao on social media since his father announced he was running for Argentina's presidency back in May. The attacks escalated even further after his father won the election.

    Good for Alberto. That's true support for your kids, not handing them an ambassadorship. Eduardo's picture is exactly the sort you see in the news when some violent gang member is arrested or killed.
