We can all agree that mum shaming is rude, unnecessary, and straight-up mean…but some still do it. Unfortunately, Jessica Simpson has had more than her share of it—and she’s finally doing something about it.
Jessica regularly shares photos of her adorable kids—Maxwell, 7, Ace, 6, and Birdie, 5 months—on Instagram. And negative comments on a recent post about Birdie finally made her take action. On Friday, Jessica shared a photo of her baby sitting in a seat. “This bird couldn’t be more adorable #blueeyes,” she wrote in the caption.
Cue the haters. “Straps on this car seat do not provide correct support,” one person wrote. “That hard buckle should be on her sternum instead of her belly to be optimally effective and not cause more harm if a car accident would happen (God forbid!),” another said.
Others jumped in and pointed out that Birdie was clearly sitting in a stroller, not a car seat. “Well maybe you should look again and see it’s a stroller instead of mum shaming,” one person wrote.
Here’s the thing: The last comment someone left was on Saturday, which suggests that Jessica turned her comments off.
Jessica has calmly dealt with mummy shaming for what seems like ages. Most recently, she was slammed for letting Maxwell dye the tips of her hair purple. But she’s also faced heat for posing Birdie for a picture on her stomach and sharing a photo of Maxwell wearing MAC lipstick.
Then came the drama after she shared pics of Maxwell in a bathing suit and again when she let her ride a scooter without a helmet.
As a whole, she’s kept pretty quiet on the haterade. But this move was subtle and, if I do say so myself, so, so awesome.
