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.’

  • Too many additives in these sorts of foods.

    • I agree, there is no mention how the child was afterwards or even days afterwards, whether she got sick or had stomach issues.


  • Clearly she wasn’t bothered by them


  • If she enjoys them than its their choice


  • Their child their choice, but I cringe by the thought what crappy foods people are giving their children.

    • It sure is an interesting choice for the age group.


  • They were probably prepared for all sorts of feedback.

    • yeah, maybe they posted this to provoke a bit :)


  • I personally wouldn’t give them to a 16 month old


  • I feel it’s definitely too young for a child to eat something like that..


  • I guess they would know if it was hurting their daughter. It’s weird how some people can handle hot stuff while others can’t. I couldn’t even stand pepper when I was younger haha


  • I think they are probably too strong for any 16 month old?


  • Regardless of if the little one likes the flavour or not, given that they are so severe and can harm the stomach lining, I wouldn’t take the risk of feeding them to my child
