    Shay Mitchell Defended Herself Against Critics Who Claimed She Was A Bad Parent For Partying

    "Apparently people are really upset that I left three days after having a kid to go out and party..."

    Last weekend, Drake had a blowout bash for his 33rd birthday and a ton of celebs were in attendance, like Adele, Rihanna...

    ...and Shay Mitchell.

    The Pretty Little Liars star and her boyfriend Matte Babel went to the party and looked like they had a blast. You'd think that'd be a good thing, wouldn't you?

    Well apparently, a ton of people called out Shay — who is a new mom — for going out so soon after having a baby.

    I...I just —

    Freeform

    In a recent Instagram story, Shay said, “I haven’t been really checking my comments that often, but apparently people are really upset that I left three days after having a kid to go out and party," while scrolling through the hateful comments.

    "It wasn’t three days and she was with [my dog] Angel, so…”

    One of the comments called out Shay's parenting skills and even suggested that child services be called. "Mother of the year award right here! As if you seriously could leave your baby to go party?! I hope the child's aid [looks] into this and your abilities to be a good parent..." said the mom-shamer.

    Another user wrote, "Wait. So you literally just had her and you're more worried about clubbing with Drake? Wooow."

    When another person called her "disgusting," Shay defended herself, writing that just because she posted about her daughter's birth on a specific day, that doesn't mean that's when she was born.

    Shay announced the birth of her daughter last week and shared a video of her 33-hour labor.

    When, when will people stop criticizing mothers??? There is more than one right way to parent, and how Shay spends her time is none of our business!! Let 👏 the woman 👏 be 👏.
