Viral Baby In A Handbag Picture Gets Mother Into Trouble
26-year-old Chinese mother, Xue Hsueh, has gotten into trouble after the picture she posted online of her son in one of her large totes went viral. Many people thought it was not a great idea for her to carry her nine-month-old son in her designer bag, and then to take a picture.
Shortly after she posted it online, the image went viral as many people reshared the picture on their own pages, calling out the mother for treating her son as a fashion accessory. Hsueh has since received widespread criticism from most people who compare the image to similar pictures of women carrying their little dogs in their handbags.
The mother has however defended her actions, claiming that the baby was only in the handbag for a short period of time. She also said she did as a joke as she was talking to her friends about what would happen if the responsibility of childcare was left in men’s hands.
Hsueh also stated that her son was enjoying himself and having fun, and that she only posted the picture to make people smile.
What do you think, would you have thought the picture funny and cute or not?
