Singer Robin Thicke and his fiancee have copped a wave of criticism after sharing footage of his 16-month-old daughter eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

The Blurred Lines singer’s fiancee April Love Geary shared a video of their little girl Mia munching through a bag of the super spicy snacks – which have seen people hospitalised due to their very high chilli content.

The couple are now facing heavy criticism on social media after sharing a video of their little girl Mia chowing down on the fiery snack on Monday.

‘Those Cheetos are beyond toxic, she’s just a child! Go read a parenting book,’ one Instagram user commented, prompting April to respond: ‘You’re beyond toxic for my children.’

‘Definitely my child,’ she captioned a second clip of Mia eating the spicy snack.

In addition to the criticism she received in the comments section of her post, someone also sent her a DM containing a screenshot of a 2013 article about Flamin’ Hot Cheetos ‘sending multiple children to the emergency room each year.’

Some doctors have warned that the hot flavorings can damage the stomach lining, causing it to become inflamed and painfully acidic.

‘We’re here for a good time, not a long time,’ she hit back before sharing a screenshot of the exchange on her Instagram Stories.

April shared the same sentiment when another Instagram user insisted she needed to stop feeding ‘this GMO’ to her baby girl.

The model explained that little Mia actually loves the spicy flavor, saying: ‘She’s like completely not phased by them! Lol. She likes to suck the flavor off then eat them.’

We recently shared a story of a teen who ended up in hospital after eating her fave snack of spicy CC’s. Read more on that HERE.

  • April’s comment shows no or very little concern for her baby’s health. The person who made the comment that April replied to probably did so to alert April of potential health danger to her baby.


  • It would probably be fine if she ate a few as she clearly likes them. Not sure I’d let her eat a whole packet!


  • I don’t know why you would initially give them this but I don’t know enough to pass any judgment.


  • I have no words to express how wrong this is


  • Wow! I’m more concerned by the parent’s responses than anything else.


  • This seems dangerous – not a good choice.


  • How cruel, you could ruin a child’s taste buds and stomach lining with this poison.


  • Well each to their own. I personally wouldn’t and I’m sure their little taste buds went through the roof.


  • Well there is a whole bunch of reasons why this kid shouldn’t eat that snack. But hey, their kid.


  • If they want to feed their kid spicy cheetos and she likes them, just let them. Not your kid, not your problem.


  • Luckily that the child didn’t have a bad reaction!


  • Certainly not my place to tell people what they can and can’t feed their children …. but I think 16 months is too young to introduce a child to something so spicy ….


  • Ok so after watching this – the child is willingly eating them herself, she’s not bothered or upset in ANY way and seems to be enjoying them. No issue here people!!!
    I really wish people and particularly parents would just stop criticising and judging other parents.
    Even if the issue isn’t about the hot flavour but a child eating chips. No I don’t agree with a young child eating chips and mine don’t, but would I or do I post and judge the parents? NO. Because it’s none of my business.
    Parenting is tough enough as is – let’s stop judging, critisizing and even posting hateful comments to other parents.


  • Some children really do like hot things. Do hope this is not an everyday food for her though and is kept as a treat.


  • If she likes them them is something the parents have to deal with. For me it is not the spicy flavour but the actual food item she is eating that is the problem. If it is a sometime food then not so bad. Children from countries that eat highly spiced foods are not harmed eating the foods.
