American comedian and television host, Steve Harvey has been accused of sharing an inappropriate video of his grandchildren.

Steve and his wife, Marjorie, are known to flood their Instagram feeds with adorable photos of their family. But it’s the latest video that Marjorie posted of granddaughters Elle, 3, and Rose, 4, that is stirring up some controversy among her followers, shares Yahoo Lifestyle.

On Monday, Marjorie took to her Instagram to post the video, which features the two little girls taking care of their baby dolls by pretending to breastfeed them. When asked what they were doing, Rose responded, “Feeding our babies,” before Elle continued, “from our boobies.”

The video shows the girls mimicking what they’ve likely seen their mothers do when taking care of their younger siblings and cousins. However, many people are responding to the post and saying, “I’m not sure how to feel about this.”

“Not cute” and “Inappropriate. A video for pedophiles,” wrote some critics, while another wrote, “This is why little girls grow up so fast…” Others suggested that the video shouldn’t have been posted on social media but should have remained private to the family.

Those who found the video endearing, however, called it “beautiful” and even mentioned that their little ones have done the same thing. Some even defended it by saying the girls would have been feeding their dolls with bottles had they seen their moms do that, and people wouldn’t have been as negative.

“Breastfeeding is normal and kids imitate what they see,” a follower commented. Another joked, “So sweet! Little do they know what’s to come when they really get there.”

Marjorie eventually responded to the hateful comments on her Instagram Stories, stating that she thought the video was hilarious.

“Cleary some of y’all weren’t breastfed. Maybe that’s the problem,” she said. “Some of y’all need a hug.”

  • Seriously, I see nothing wrong with this at all. So cute and even cuter that he’s a doting Grandad.

  • Imagine being at a funeral service in a church and a little one (2 y.o.) burping her baby doll over her shoulder like she had seen her Mum do with her newborn baby sister ………during a prayer. A friend opened her eyes to make sure Missy was OK It took her all her time not to laugh.

  • I don’t see anything wrong with this. But perhaps it should not have been shared on social media.

  • So innocent – in days before social media, nothing would have been said – certainly not this sort of furore.


    • Quite true! Social media does indeed magnify things!

  • Perfectly innocent. Why the fuss?

  • I do not understand why anyone is offended by this – I do not see anything inappropriate.

  • My kids have done the same. This is what kids do and I think it’s very sweet. I don’t see anything wrong with the video.

  • Have a picture of my oldest son feeding his teddy bear and when asked he said feeding teddy because he is hungry. My son was 4 at the time and I saw nothing wrong with it, nor did we tell him only females could do this. Maybe sharing is up to the parents, I always ask my son when I have pictures of his daughter before posting as not my child.

  • This is natural and obviously something they’ve seen a parent do to mimic. When will the stigma on breastfeeding go, it’s such a shame.

  • I personally don’t see anything wrong with the video, it’s just kids being kids and imitating what they see their mums do. I actually think it’s great that they think it’s a normal thing to do at such a young age. Lets hope they see it as normal into their adult years

  • and like all breast feeding mummas they are appropriately covered up, you know breast feeding isn’t about flashing it is about feeding! I have a pic of my daughter doing this years ago, it is gorgeous!=, I even have a pic of my son pumping for our other son who was still in hospital after being born just over 6 week prematurely

  • It’s cute for sure and a natural thing both in play and as a mother to do. I wouldn’t share this if it were my girls but that’s my personal preference. If she’s comfortable sharing it and their parents are okay with it then who cares.

  • I’m sure plenty of families share photos like this.

  • I would’ve kept it private, because I think we need to be careful about what we share about kds. But there’s nothing wrong or weird about pretend breastfeeding.
