An image showing a baby smoking has sparked outrage on social media with some people calling for child services to intervene.

The picture, posted to Instagram, shows a toddler inhaling from a lit cigarette being held by an adult, shares Daily Mail.

The caption for the post read ‘trying brittnies cig hahaha’ and justified the ‘joke photo’ by saying the child ‘barely inhaled.’

‘For everyone getting offended she only had one puff.’

The image, which has been shared on Reddit, sparked outrage with people calling for the child to be removed from the person’s care.

‘This isn’t funny, you should have your child took (sic) off you,’ one person commented.

Another concerned observer said ‘this is the kind of thing you report to the authorities.’

‘I think this is the angriest Reddit has ever made me,’ one particularly distressed social media user added.

People argued ‘I don’t think the context is the problem – just the fact a child has a cigarette in their mouth.’

The reddit post has amassed over 1200 comments.

  • I’m so disgusted. Just one puff shouldn’t happen!


  • It’s sad that with all the info out there, some people still do not realise the damage they do. ‘One life’s is too many, this cigarette shouldn’t even be in the same room as the baby, let alone in its mouth.


  • Zero words…… ok two words…..zero words :(


  • That’s disgusting!!


  • disgusting and unacceptable. what a foolish mother


  • Seriously? Poor judgement with a baby – services should be involved.


  • Yes, I saw this picture the other day. Unbelievable. Is that the love she has for her baby?? :-(


  • One puff, one too many. How many times has she given her daughter one puff????
    She is obviously smoking around her daughter, so she is constantly inhaling smoke.
    How much is it going to damage the little girl’s lungs….and teeth??


  • what absolute idiots! Darn fools!


  • What kind of people would think this is funny?!?! It’s shocking and children’s services need to investigate to check out the child’s general home life


  • A poor ‘joke’ and odd thing to do and I do not imagine anyone would find it funny.


  • Not a good thing indeed !


  • Not a particularly funny “joke”.


  • Yeah. They need the baby ‘took off’ them. I’d rather the people with crap grammar who understand that forcing a baby to smoke is so so wrong to raise this bub.


  • Wow. Some people don’t deserve children, I certainly hope social services is involved.
