    People On Instagram Called Out Coco Austin For Bathing Her Daughter In The Kitchen Sink, And Now She's Firing Back

    Coco Austin has fans divided in the comments on whether it's okay to bathe a child in the kitchen sink.

    Once again, Coco Austin's parenting skills are being criticized by people on the internet, but this time she's firing back.

    Last week, Coco shared a "get ready with me" video to her social media accounts as she and her 6-year-old daughter Chanel prepared to attend a fashion show. But some people couldn't get over where Chanel was freshening up.

    In the video, Coco's daughter is seen taking a bath in the kitchen sink as she watches something on her iPad. She captioned the moment, "The sink is easiest when you have to be fast."

    While some users praised Coco for finding a way to save time, others found the idea of cleaning a human in a kitchen sink unsanitary.

    Here's a glimpse at some of the backlash she faced in her comments:

    A comment saying "Are you kidding?! She's not a baby anymore"
    A comment saying "You go in the bathroom to do your hair but can't bathe your baby in there?! you lost me babe"
    A long comment saying there is a difference between the places where you clean your food and where you clean humans
    A comment saying "you have a whole tub behind you and you decided to take her downstairs to the kitchen to let her sit in the sink"

    For full context, you can check out the whole video below:

    After noticing the negativity the video was getting because of that one scene, Coco decided to address all of the critics on Twitter:

    Wow just Wow! Here we go again! Giving my lil girl a bath in the sink went Viral? SMH!People,you gotta know by now that I'm an unconventional mother. I do what works and is easier on me. Some may want to take some pointers rather than rag on me! https://t.co/OBzvbNnZDJ

    But this wasn't the first time Coco ruffled a few feathers online. She faced similar backlash back in 2020 when she revealed she still breastfed Chanel at 4 years old.

    This has me wondering: When it comes to celebrities and their kids, should some topics not be up for debate? Or does posting on the internet grant everyone the opportunity to share their opinion, no matter the topic?

    Let me know how you feel in the comments.
