Mum Defends Picture Showing Her Son Seemingly 'Kiss Her Bare Bum Cheek'
A mum has defended herself against trolls on social media after a picture of her toddler appearing to kiss her bare bum sparked outrage online.
In the snap - which was apparently taken three years ago - the little boy can be seen close to his mum Cristina Valy's backside.
Now Cristina, from Slatina in Romania, has hit back at trolls after one said: "You can't be called a mother after doing something like this to your kid."
Responding to criticism on Facebook she said: "Do you really think I'd make my young son kiss my bum? Can't you see that I'm smiling in the photo?
"I was laughing because my kid pulled down my trousers at that moment and leaned in close."
Kids are peculiar little beings, aren't they?
Cristina said the child's aunt Stancu Madalina snapped the moment with her phone, adding: "She took the photo without me knowing, so ask her and not me about comments on how and why this happened if you genuinely think I am dumb enough to get my kid to kiss my bottom."
She also explained the photo was taken three years ago and she has no idea why it has surfaced online now.
She said: "If I thought I was guilty, I would remove my social media accounts, but I haven't done that as I love my child and all these accusations have nothing to do with reality."
Local media said authorities were alerted about the incident, although
it is unclear whether it is under investigation.
One thing's for sure, Cristina is not alone when it comes to everyone having an opinion.
Take Jade Jeanes as a prime example. She and her husband Joshua are both huge fans of all things Disney so it only seemed right that they named their first child after their shared passion.
Yep, their kid's called Disney.
Jade, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, says she wishes people wouldn't leave her such hurtful comments.
"It's just a name, there are ordinary names that people give that I don't like, but I don't tell them that they shouldn't give those names.
"It was more of a fun post that I assumed people would be okay with. In the end, people just either hate it or love it.
"My husband's siblings have young children and they like Disney films so she'll be brought up in a big, happy Disney family. She's a bundle of joy to be around."
Haters gonna hate, I guess.
