One woman is getting hate from the internet for allowing her toddler to take a sip of her beer.
The anonymous woman is being harassed for being “irresponsible” for allowing her daughter to drink alcohol but she shot back how it’s “not shooting f—–ing heroin,” so everyone needs to calm down. But now, many are debating the viral picture.
The photo reveals a young girl’s face covered in foam from her mom’s beer as she goes for a swig. The photo of the anonymous girl was photographed and reposted in a now-deleted post on Reddit’s r/trashy forum.
The photo quickly went viral and garnered immediate attention.
“She loves the taste of Mommy’s beer,” the caption read. “#Drinkup.”
“Don’t let her drink that for god sake!!” one commenter wrote. “What the h–l.”
“This is messed up,” someone else wrote. “It’s not even funny one bit.”
“Do you want your child to be taken into care?” another person asked. “Cause even if this is a joke someone will see this and report it to social services … delete it now or you’ll regret it.”
But others believed it was not as bad as she made it out, with one person commenting: “Eh, I gotta say … My kids has tasted mine,” one person commented. “Mostly to make them stop asking. Worked wonders with the oldest. My 1.5 year old, however, loves it. So that kinda backfired …”
While another said: “I’m not justifying anything here but often the only way of getting guaranteed clean drinking water in medieval England would be to ‘brew’ water with hops and to give your children beer,” someone else pointed out.
