Mommy-shaming on the internet is a real problem, especially when a mom—specifically a famous one—has the audacity to, gasp, kiss their child. Olivia Wilde, Hilary Duff, and now Gabrielle Union have all been mommy shamed for kissing their kids on the lips. For Union, her comment section blew up when Union posted a video kissing her newborn daughter Kaavia—they claimed it was “unsanitary.” Thankfully, Union shut the criticism down.
The fact that she even had to defend herself is exhausting. Union added that when Oprah came to her house for an interview, she made the entire crew show their up-to-date vaccine paperwork.
We appreciate Union’s clap back, but she doesn’t need to explain herself. Moms have been mom-ing since the literal dawn of time, and if they want advice, they’ll ask for it.
