Mum who posted videos of her small daughters applying make-up online has received horrible abuse from cruel trolls.
Courtney McCutcheon, 28, allowed her daughters, Molly, five, and June, three to film their own full-face make-up tutorials, after the girls watched their mother create how-to guides, reports Daily Mail.
Courtney, from Missouri, shared the videos on her Instagram account and YouTube channel, and was shocked to receive comments accusing her of ‘child abuse’.
‘I was really shocked to receive such cruel comments,’ said Courtney, who says five-year-old Molly is a ‘talented’ make-up artist.
‘One commented that my daughter was fat and that I should be spending more time teaching her how to eat healthily.
‘Another said that I should die for letting them play with make-up and accused me of child abuse.
‘I was disgusted. I’ve always taught my daughters to love everyone and that it doesn’t matter about hobbies, skin colour or religion- just be you.
‘It saddened me to see that people were commenting without knowing or caring how it would make us feel,’ said the mum-of-two, who started filming her own make-up tutorials in February, and said she has 38,000 supportive followers.
‘The girls were really interested in what I was doing,’ she said.
‘In May, I decided to let Molly and June record their own little make-up videos just for fun.
‘They played around with the make-up and pulled faces at the camera, before I removed it all with coconut oil.’
‘I don’t think there’s any harm in young girls wearing make-up, just as long as they know they are beautiful without it.
‘I won’t be allowing them out of the house with full make-up on until they’re mature young ladies.
‘For now, both of my girls just like to play with it for fun.
‘They have been brought up not to judge others and I can only hope that internet trolls can learn to do the same.’
Why do people continue to be so nasty behind a computer screen? It is NEVER acceptable, no matter how public a post or persons profile. You don’t have a right to be so cruel. Bite your tongue!
