What if Someone Called Your Baby Ugly?

Tia Mowry, Cory, & Cree Hardrict YBF
I'm a lover not a fighter.  But if someone calls my baby ugly, then it's time to take off my jewelry and break out the vaseline.  Lucky for me, I've only heard sweet things about my baby girl.  However, not everyone can say the same.  I recently came across this article on Babycenter, where the author criticizes people for making harsh comments about Tia Mowry-Hardrict's son, Cree.  It's seems unreal for people to be so rude.

Here are just some of the comments posted on YBF:

"The baby looks like a little old man. It's not his fault though, his parents chemistries just didnt mix together well."

"that kid's head is beyond massive. damn."

"That baby is beyond ugly. People have the right to say how they feel. The kid is ugly but then again so is the father."

Tia is obviously a lady of class.  She responds to those naysayers on her Facebook page:

“It’s disgusting that some focus on looks. I brought a beautiful child into this world” – Tia Mowry.

She gets mad props for sounding off and defending her child on Facebook.  Even though I've never been in this situation, it does hit a soft spot.  As a mom, I'll do anything to protect my child.     I'll admit- some babies are cuter than others.  I've seen babies who I wouldn't consider adorable.  Take it from this former ugly baby (so I've been told), verbally assaulting a child is not cool.  If you don't feel a kid is cute, just don't say anything.  You can always stick with comments like:

"God bless him/her."
"What a precious baby!"
You can also focus on beautiful features by saying things like, "She has beautiful eyes."

As an infant, I remember people saying how much they adored Princess's head.  Someone also couldn't stop talking about how much they loved the back of her neck.  I appreciated those compliments.  They could of said, "Dam, she's bald!!  But, they focused on her beautiful assets.  FYI, there's nothing wrong with being bald.  I am a former baldy. 

As for Tia's baby Cree, I happen to think he's a cutie pie.  To say anything insulting is just heartless.  Just think- would you want your child growing up and reading these negative opinions?
Has anyone ever called your baby ugly?

I cannot imagine. Bloody rude people.

That's what I said.

People are just so freaking rude. They are forgetting that freedom of speech doesn't mean making fun of other people. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone sees their baby as nothing but beautiful because they are amazing creature of God.

I am with you, why not focus on the positive things. If someone ever calls my baby ugly it will be on.

That is so horrible! I mean really what is wrong with people?? I love them and their baby and I am a baby fan in general, I can't see the sense in calling a baby ugly. Its so hurtful and unnecessary!

Wow! My kindergarten teacher told me, "If you don't have anythign nice to say then keep it to yourself." I can't believe the things people say. Tia is a classy woman for keeping cool, calm. and collected. I might have went off on some folks!

Well. I've gotten a lot of "God Bless Him"s so I guess all those people were calling my little man ugly all this time! Bastards!

I think lil Cree is adorable!!! And so is princess!!

Are you kidding. Ro-Ro is sooooooo cute!!! I just made that nickname up. lol There is no denying that!

Dani's comment just cracked me up no end! I agree with WAM, Ro-Ro (yes WAM, I stole ryt before your eyes, lol) is freaking cute! and so is Princess. My niece Zoe is a "baldy" at 3 but it hasn't taken anything away from her absosugarlutely gorgeous features. And it's just plain rude (and slap-worthy)to say a baby is ugly, especially to the parent's face.

I think we'd found a new nickname for your baby boy. haha. I like that- slap-worthy. But, it's so true. Babies are so precious. I was a baldy for years, like Zoe. I'm sure she's gorgeous!

I am very familiar with thet ghetto ass website! And it's sad when our own people always criticize the looks of a baby and child. We sometimes are our own worst enemy and yes those comments are from our very own black folks because ain't no white blogger will post things like that. Black people always worrying about if the baby have good hair less than 2 minutes coming out the birth canal or after a section. That is why that blogger is not on my blog roll because they talk about foolery! Tiny of The R&B group Xscape is a dear friend of mines and I had to get on some people asses who talked about her children calling them names and other things that I will not mention. Tiny is a mixed women who mother is white and rapper T.I. Is Afro American so their children share a mixture of features from both parents. Most of the comments stems from the jealousy envious of one who man ain't doing shit for them or their children so the filter and pick out flaws of a child then talk about the parents because they have their own insecurities. Them comments I read were not opinions they were insults and simply being mean. Sorry for the spelling I'm going to get my eyes check this morning and I'm typing with one eye.

Hi Stacy Ann love watching your news. Your a real down to earth chic and Bklyn loves you for that!

The internet has made people bold, which makes them say mean & hurtful things. It shows the level of ignorance people have. Cree is a beautiful baby. It just angers me because the same people that said Cree was ugly, if you said that about them, their kids, clothing, hair or whatever, they would be ready to fight or say you were a hater.

People can be horrible and harsh. And it's apparently easier to be both when you hide behind a keyboard and screen to do such things. Horrible. I agree 100% with what you write here. As always, you can't change what people say and do, you can only change your reaction to them. Sounds like yours is the right reaction.

Stopping by from SITS. Happy Saturday!
