It is truly a sad day when a mother cannot kiss her son. Amber Rose is the latest celebrity mom to be shamed online for showing her child, Sebastian “Bash” Thomaz, affection.
“My Greatest Gift,” Amber captioned underneath a picture post of her in the process of giving her son a kiss on the lips. Many fans thought the candid was nothing short of sweet. Some, however, referenced Amber Rose’s radical stance on women’s rights as a means to find fault in the candid.
“I hope she don’t kiss her son in the mouth with that mouth she got,” one critic said. Another troll wrote, “D*mn, lil bruh finna catch sum.”
Amber Rose has remained vocal about her belief that women, regardless of their feelings regarding a modest appeal in public, should be respected. Such is part of the reason why she hosts her annual SlutWalk, which gains momentum every year.
“I’ve been called a slut while I was still a virgin. I have been called a slut while I was in a committed relationship with my husband,” Amber said during an interview in 2015. “So it really doesn’t matter what you do in life, people can call you that name because they are uncomfortable with your sexuality. That’s all it is.”
Regardless of how people may feel about Amber Rose and her life’s decisions, many agree that attacking a child is wrong from all angles. “Please don’t place labels, especially on children,” one of Amber’s defenders wrote after seeing the negative comments regarding the celebrity mom kissing her son. “[Sebastian] is what he will want to be when HE grows up. Why not use uplifting words. Children are the future and love conquers all.”
Sebastian is Amber Rose’s son with her ex-husband, Wiz Khalifa. Stay tuned for more celebrity mom news!
