Body-shaming trolls are the worst.
Earlier this week, a Reddit user posted a photo of his adorable 14-month-old daughter to the Daddit subreddit, but accidentally uploaded it to Imgur and made the photo public, according to his wife.
The photo, which has since been removed, received dozens of negative comments, telling the parents their daughter was too fat for her age.
Are these trolls serious? She's only 14 months old and CUTE AS HELL.
In another post, the child's mother wrote,
Two people said she was unhealthily overweight and that we should take better care of her. My 14-month-old. Who is perfectly healthy and thriving at a normal weight.
Since when are these people experts on all things pertaining to baby health?
This baby doesn't even know how to say the word "fat" yet. She's been alive for less than two years and even she can't escape the stupid body standards girls face. It's not fair.
The original post, as well as the parents' Reddit accounts, have since been deleted, but you can still read the many supportive and positive comments in the thread.
Other Reddit users were quick to share similar experiences where people shamed their young kids for "being fat."
This story from a Reddit user is just terrible:
My husband posted a picture of our newborn on Daddit and someone replied that they hoped she died of SIDS. It didn't really bother me because it was just someone trying to get a rise out us with no real power or anything personal behind it, but it shows the quality of people these websites sometimes harbor.
What the hell, people? Some users expressed how aware they are of what's to come with daughters growing up in today's society. One user wrote,
I, too, have a 14-month-old girl and I hate that I'm going to have to combat all of the pressure society puts on girls' appearances. Your girl looks like a beautiful, healthy kid. Sorry people are being jerks.
It's nice to see parents supporting each other with positive comments. This user wrote,
Your daughter is adorable and looks totally healthy to me! I hope my daughter is doing just as well at 14 months! Ignore those people who obviously have no idea what a healthy child of that age should look like.
Hey, trolls, have you never seen a chubby baby in your lives? They're adorable. And it's not unhealthy for babies to be chubby at that age.
I was a chubby baby too, and my mom told me she used to make my baby food. Safe to say I had a healthy diet, despite the chub.
Luckily, people are quick to put body shamers on blast.
Trolls should know by now not to mess with new moms because they will come for you on Facebook. Their posts often go viral, and you can see hundreds of supportive and positive comments.
There's no more room for you here, body shamers. Take a hint already.
