The viral clip received hundreds of comments judging the mum for the procedure. She hit back and responded: “Y’all realize I’m getting paid for all y’all weird obsessed comments – go off y’all!!!!!!!! Keep me paid (sic).”
“No words apart from why would you do that to a newborn,” another critic commented, to which she responded: “Mind your business.”
One TikTok user suggested she “should have let him get old enough to choose if he wants his ears pierced,” adding “#Iblamethepeircertoo.”
“You’re just trying to be cool,” another added. “Yes, he’s your child but don’t put it out there if you don’t want people’s opinion.”
“Unnecessary pain to a child. Children that can voice this is their choice should only have this. Mum and ear piercer should not do this. Poor baby,” another added.
One TikToker jumped to the defence of the mum, saying: “Did you birth her baby? Let her do what she wants her baby her choices these comments are ridiculous.”
Another user concluded: “Calm down. They’re not your child so keep your opinion to yourself.”
