Back off, haters!

Presley Gerber is hotly defending his recent decision to have the word “Misunderstood” tattooed on his face.

The 20-year-old son of supermodel Cindy Crawford (53) and businessman Rande Gerber (57) has faced a serious backlash since debuting his body art in an Instagram Live video over the weekend – and he’s clearly had enough.

“You don’t know how I feel. You’re not in my head,” he said in the clip captured by a Twitter user.

When asked about the meaning of his tattoo, which is inked in capital letters across his right cheekbone, the young star replied, “I don’t feel very understood, I guess.”

In the same video, he goes on to challenge any haters to come to his house directly if they have something to say.

Pointing to his fresh ink, he says, “If anyone has shit to say to me about this, or anything else, or my family, or how I grew up, I’ll give you my address – I promise – and you can come say it to my face.

“If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing. It says misunderstood, because that’s how I felt my entire life.”

“His parents love it by the way,” Presley’s girlfriend, model Cameron Rorrison (19), interjected at one point on the video, according to the outlet.

Can’t say the same for many of his fans who’ve been flooding his Instagram account ever since.

“Sweet Jesus. The only thing misunderstood is that tattoo. You just ruined your canvas,” one wrote.

“Are you really that misunderstood? Having all the money at your disposal is never a good thing in life. You must be so bored. Hope you do something good in the future with it,” wrote another.

“You’ll regret that decision VERY soon ??” a third commenter said.

Presley unveiled his new body art on Friday when he shared a video of New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan “JonBoy” Valena inking a design on his face. “Thanks homie ?? @jonboytattoo,” he wrote on Instagram.
