Can we just let people grieve? Not even a full three days after Brandi Boyd of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood posted a video of herself crying while telling fans that she and husband Max Lux suffered a miscarriage did critics take to social media to slam the reality star for allegedly sharing too much.
First, let’s address the video. In the clip, Brandi was visibly upset about the reality of losing her unborn son who she and Max planned to name Brandus. “I was keeping my pregnancy a private matter, but I realized there’s no reason to be private,” Brandi said. “I lost my baby, right now,” the would-be mother revealed. Monitoring machines could be heard in the background, which convinced viewers that Boyd was in the hospital at the time of filming.
This pain cuts So Deep . I thought keeping this pregnancy private would protect our baby from negativity and bad energy out there not wanting anything but positive energy good vibes and prayers going up. But today we lost our baby today the fight we didn't win and I will never loose faith in God no matter what but my spirit is broken my heart hurts so bad the physical pain is numb. All Gods children and mothers that have been through this you are not alone I wish this on no one . Our Baby was loved so much I was connected and so was our son praying and talking to my stomach everyday . Our Baby will never die in our heart . RIP Angel #PrinceBrandusBabyInHeaven
Many followers gave their condolences and offered prayers to Brandi and Max. Some trolls, however, took the opportunity to remind the former Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star that everything is not for the public’s eyes and ears. “Everything ain’t for social media,” one Shade Room follower wrote. “You could have kept this moment private like you did the pregnancy.”
Another social media critic wrote, “I truly feel bad for her and her family. I also believe that more women should be open about miscarriage so others don’t feel alone but this… this is definitely not the way. This could be the way she’s coping but crying and recording yourself during what’s supposed to be a time of mourning just doesn’t seem genuine.”
