AceShowbiz - Farrah Abraham is defending her daughter Sophia after backlash she's receiving over a recent TikTok video featuring the kid twerking. The former "Teen Mom" star shares that she's just wanting her 10-year-old daughter to be able to act like a kid as much as she wants.
The now-removed video saw the mom-and-daughter duo dancing to Megan Thee Stallion and Moneybagg Yo's jam "All That". Farrah was makeup-free in the video, while Sophia was wearing an adorable gray unicorn and rainbow onesie.
She was then placed her hands on her knees before twerking while showing her back to the camera. She moved while Moneybagg rapped, "What you doing with all that a**, let me touch it."
"It's sad that thousands and millions of other kids can act like kids and Sophia doesn't get that attribute of acting like a child," Farrah explained to The Sun while attending the ThinkBIG 2020 Conference presented by the Nazarian Institute over the weekend. "I feel like I'm allowing my kid to be a child and that's first and foremost no. 1."
The MTV personality did admit the video wasn't necessarily appropriate, but in her defense, she had tried warning her daughter. "I said [to Sophia], 'I don't think that's age appropriate because you're twerking your booty.' And she's like, 'Mom but all the kids are doing it,' " Farrah explained. "I'm like, 'Okay I'll try this for you, but I'm really not about it.' "
She then revealed that the comments were full of "all bad things" online and that was probably why she deleted the video.
Despite the controversy. Farrah's mom Debra Danielson previously defended her daughter's parenting. "I don't think it's scandalous at all. We've always done funny little things like that around the house," she said. "It's not meant to be sexual. We live in a society where people love to hate and love to make a big deal out of nothing…they're just having fun!"
