Just days after Hugh Hefner broke his silence over Holly Madison's shocking allegations, his son Cooper Hefner is rushing to his defense.

The 23-year-old film producer took to Twitter to vent his frustrations over his father's ex-girlfriend's remarks, and he didn't mince words.

"How does a person who is famous for being a gold digger paint themselves as a victim of a relationship they aggressively sought out for?"

Cooper continued, "Holly Madison, V. Stiviano, and a few other lovely ladies that lived in LA make a Justice League type group of wonderfully sh---y people."

Earlier this week, Hugh released the following statement after the release of Madison's tell-all, Down the Rabbit Hole.

"Over the course of my life I've had more than my fair share of romantic relationships with wonderful women. Many moved on to live happy, healthy and productive lives, and I'm pleased to say remain dear friends today. Sadly, there are a few who have chosen to rewrite history in an attempt to stay in the spotlight," he explained. "I guess, as the old saying goes: You can't win 'em all!"

Meanwhile, Madison herself explained to us why she chose to spill the beans on what went down during her time at the Playboy Mansion.

"I wanted a chance to just tell my story and talk about where I was coming from and kind of set the record straight because I feel like everybody else in that situation had the chance to do so and I never did," she told E! News. "I was just the one who was quiet for so long. After some years have passed, I don't really find him to be a very genuine person. I feel like if I were to get on the phone with him, everything out of his mouth would be PR B.S. I just have no desire. I don't even care what his reaction is to this. I'm doing this for me and I'm doing this so people can learn from my mistakes."
