There’s no doubt that busy moms are always looking for the most efficient way to get things done, especially when juggling work, kids’ schedules, and household chores. Sometimes the simplest thing doesn’t always make the most sense, but it works. Reality TV personality Coco Austin knows this all too well.
The Ice cream loves coconut the star was slammed by the internet after posting what was apparently a mundane ‘Get Ready With Me’ video for her instagram Account. In the video, she shows her 6-year-old daughter – Chanel – staring at an iPad as she sits in a bubble-soaked kitchen sink.
“Sink is easier when you have to be fast,” she wrote in the video.
Although the video was Austin sharing how excited she was for Chanel’s first fashion show, viewers were instead focused on the kindergarten in the sink. A troll comment wrote, “The sink is for food. And this child is 6 years old, she can shower. And the shower is the fastest…”
Another chimed in, “If you’re in a hurry, why is it on her tablet?” Why are you posting this on the internet anyway? So you get angry when people comment? Help this make sense.
Austin, fed up with the criticism, clapped back at the trolls, commenting that she doesn’t seem to win when it comes to the internet.
“Everything I do, people have to say something about it,” she said. Page 6. “But now it’s a little weird for other people. Like really? If you are a mom, you have bathed your child in the sink.
She also expressed her frustration that the video was meant to highlight her excitement for Chanel’s first fashion show. However, viewers zeroed in on a second or two of footage that they felt was much more interesting. “I was going to the fashion show,” Austin continued, “and they took that second and made this little thing bigger than anything else.”
When the video first went viral, Austin shared the Page 6 news article on her Twitter account and blasted those who make a fuss out of seemingly nothing, calling herself an “unconventional mother.”
Austin added, “People, you should know by now that I’m an unconventional mom. I do what works and it’s easier for me. Some may want to take advice rather than bully me!”
Her child is clean and going to a fashion show. Looks like she did it with Austin as her mother! Yet people laugh at her. A father would receive a gold medal for even remembering to put his child in the tub before a big event. Ah, the classic double standard and impossible standards of being a mother.
But honestly, let’s put aside How? ‘Or’ What Austin bathes his child in the sink and concentrates on the fact that she has a sink big enough to even hold a six-year-old! Jealous!
