There is a certain contingent of people who troll celebrity social media accounts just looking (hoping?) for something to complain and/or criticize them about. We’ve seen it a lot with the Duggars. Just last week, Jill Duggar’s husband got reamed for giving his baby a water bottle. Jessa Duggar is no stronger to the pearl-clutchers, either. Recently, she was mommyshamed for “letting” her toddler throw husband Ben Seewald’s phone in the toilet. And now, people are at it again! Jessa posted a little video of Henry, who turns one in just a few days, gumming away on a tag on a stuffed animal. Somehow (we know how) the comments dissolved into a hot mess of HOW DARE YOU.
Jessa Duggar posted a video of Henry playing with a little stuffie his grandparents brought him from Australia. However, fans were quick to point out the “danger” of what he was doing.
Little Henry, as kids are wont to do, immediately put the tag on the stuffie in his mouth. Honestly, kids could care less for toys. They want to boxes, tags, and wrapping paper. Buying toys is a rip, you guys. Anywho, Henry is almost one, and most certainly puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. The little cardboard tag was no exception.
But, because we can’t have nice things ever, fans pounced. Never mind that Jessa was literally a foot away the entire time. No no, if anyone in the comments is to be believed, Henry was seconds away from choking to death on the tag.
It’s <chef kisses fingers> perfect that a commenter is asking “why look for trouble” after coming to someone’s IG to cause trouble.
Raising a child is hard, and literally everything is dangerous. I definitely don’t think giving an infant a plastic bottle with a lid on it in a moving car is the smartest thing to do, but letting a one year old gum a tag? Come on.
So, the moral of the story is: never post anything online. Also, it’s astounding how many people don’t know how to spell “choking”. Chocking isn’t the same thing, idiot commenters of the world.
