Ava Phillippe is blasting bigots.

On the heels of her nonchalant comments about sexuality, the daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe posted a fairly blunt message to haters on Instagram this week.

"QUICK REMINDER: I can & will block profiles commenting bigoted/hateful messages under my posts," she wrote on her Instagram Story, according to People. "My Instagram profile is not a place for cruelty/hate speech & I intend to do what I can to keep it that way. Peace & Love."

Ava, 22, didn't specify why she posted the message, but it came just days after she shrugged off a question about sexuality.

During a recent Instagram Q&A, a fan asked, "Do u like boys or girls?" Ava replied, "I'm attracted to… people! (Gender is whatever)."

Ava, who recently reached 1 million Instagram followers, told E!'s Daily Pop in December that she wants her social media to be meaningful. Prior to her posts, she considers, "What is that going to mean to somebody else? What does it mean to me? Is this helpful? Is it important? Is it charitable? Is it something I want the world to see from me?"

She continued, "I do have a platform of some sort, for sure, and I want to be conscious of what I am posting. I might not always get it right but I'm always going to try my best to put good out there."

At the end of the day she just wants to be real with her followers. 

"We do see a lot of the falsified sides or the facades, and it's just not completely true of everyone, and I think a little truth is good sometimes," she said. "People that are able to be that honest and tap into that empathy in such a real way, there's nothing like it to me. My friends, I think they all have their own ways of doing it, I love that about them. And in my romantic life it's also important, for sure."
