I don't have kids, but is it considered good parenting to tell your children they are dead to you through the press?

That's what Kate Hudson's amazing dad did. He should start a blog about being a father.
Apparently he was so, so mad because of a photo that Kate's brother, Oliver, posted on Instagram on Father's Day. It was an adorable childhood picture of little Kate, Oliver, and their loving, role model dad, Bill. Oliver tagged Kate and captioned it "Happy abandonment day..."
Bill divorced the siblings' mom, Goldie Hawn, when they were little, and they consider their stepdad, Kurt Russell, to be their real dad. But Bill told the Daily Mail he understands that divorce can be complicated for young children, and ultimately he just has his kids' best interests at heart:
"I had five birth children but I now consider myself a father of three. I no longer recognise Oliver and Kate as my own. I would ask them to stop using the Hudson name. They are no longer a part of my life. Oliver's Instagram post was a malicious, vicious, premeditated attack. He is dead to me now. As is Kate. I am mourning their loss even though they are still walking this earth."
"They don't care and are not surprised by this. It's been this way, and he's been saying this stuff forever."
The Hawn-Russell-Hudson crew is too busy being famous and loving to deal with public disownings.

In the end, Kate and Oliver are coming out of this story looking much better than their dad. Like, way better. I mean they look good, right? Hot family!
