Mothers Were Making Fun Of Other People’s ‘Ugly’ Toddlers On Facebook
A group was created on Facebook to share photos of children deemed “ugly” and some of the photos even displayed children with disabilities. As sad as that is, what’s even worse is that the group was made up of grown women who would find and share the photos.
Mail Online reports that the group was originally designed to trade and sell children's clothing but took a nasty turn. The private group, which has since been removed, included photos of children from other mothers' Facebook pages that were then posted without approval for criticizing.
"An ugly baby thread. I have died and gone to heaven ... why can't you guys live near me so we can do this over cocktails?" one mother reportedly wrote, according to WESH.
One mother of a toddler who was mocked at posted a picture of her as a newborn in the intensive care unit and wrote, "This is MY DAUGHTER that is being made fun of because she is delayed…so funny, huh? Sick (expletive)."
The response from one of the members in the group was disturbing.
"THIS IS FACEBOOK, NOT THE SALEM WITCH HUNT....THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY AND I WAS LAUGHING BECAUSE IT WAS FUNNY....THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS, NEXT."
One mother is now doing her best to shame the women who are part of the group.
Melissa Antenucci, of Palm Beach, Fla., began posting the mother's comments online in order to exploit their cruel remarks.
"The things that these mothers said were the most horrific things that I have ever seen, being a mom and knowing that they are moms," Antenucci said.
