A Georgia mother was recently seen beating her teenage daughter on a Facebook live stream for allegedly posting a provocative photo online (video below).
Shanavia Miller accused her 16-year-old daughter of posing for a picture while wearing just a towel and sneaking her boyfriend in the house to have sex, according to media reports.
The clip begins with Miller holding a piece of wood and approaching her daughter.
“You want to have this boy in my f---ing house?” Miller shouts in the video, according to the Daily Mail. “You want to have all this s--- going on in my s--- huh?”
After striking the girl with the piece of wood until it breaks, Miller continues the attack with her fists.
“Get your grades up in school before you think about opening your legs," she says, according to KTVI. "Keep your room cleaned and actually be nice to your sister!”
The beating continues throughout the more than five minute long video. During its final seconds, Miller announces that she is taking control of her daughter’s Facebook page.
“This is my page now,” she said, according to The Washington Post. “Now I’m gonna need y’all to send this viral. Please share this because I’m not done. More to come.”
After the video went viral, Miller posted a message on her daughter's Facebook: "I love my daughter with all my heart what ever happens after this o well my daughter is not going to disrespect me or [herself] ... Ain't nothing change she still my baby girl 100. lesson learned now have a blessed day."
The 16-year-old allegedly posted to her Facebook page defending Miller’s actions.
"I understand why she did what she did. Everybody laughing and making reenactments. Sharing my pictures im seeing everything. I did go to the hospital only because i have [anxiety] attacks & real bad head ache," the post read.
Some Facebook users have contacted law enforcement, urging authorities to prosecute Miller.
Darnisha Green, a spokeswoman for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, said Miller could still be charged.
“Our special victims unit looked into the case and officers talked to the mother and daughter,” Green added, before noting that the daughter said she felt safe in the home.
