Concerned busybodies have accused Kelly Clarkson of child abuse after she shared a picture of her two-year-old daughter eating Nutella on toast.
If you’re rereading the above sentence to work out where exactly the ‘child abuse’ comes into it don’t worry, you’re not alone anyway.
The reason Kelly, who posted an adorable video of her daughter River Rose a bite of Nutella on toast, was accused of child abuse was because the chocolatey treat contains too much sugar, The Mirror reports.
Stop trying to make your daughter as fat as you. That’s child abuse. You should be ashamed.
Other hysterical commenters were slightly more restrained in their ravings, claiming that Nutella was ‘bad for you’ and full of sugar’ rather than saying Kelly was abusing her kid or resorting to fat shaming.
And while the person who left the comment is clearly a body shaming dildo of a human being let’s not forget they score two bonus points by also completely underplaying the experiences of those who’ve suffered real child abuse.
Let’s be honest, it seems the keyboard warriors just wanted to have a go at a pop star and this was a convenient excuse to demonstrate that their comments are the digital equivalent of skid marks in a toilet.
Thankfully there were other parents who were slightly more reasonable and defended Kelly saying ‘Nutella toast is the bomb’ while another added that people start ‘shit’ like this in a bid for attention.
Ironically some of those criticising Kelly responded saying they had come under fire for their comments and that they didn’t know why.
It’s almost like you shouldn’t make snap judgements about a situation you don’t know anything about isn’t it?
Polite reminder – opinions are like arseholes, everyone’s got one but no one wants to see yours on Instagram.
