AceShowbiz - Coco Austin has come under fire once again over her parenting method. The wife of Ice-T got slammed online after sharing a video that showed her 6-year-old daughter Chanel teaching her grandma how to twerk.
In the clip Coco posted on her Instagram Story on Thanksgiving, her daughter Chanel could be seen showing her grandma, Tina, how to bend her knees and stick out her tush. The 42-year-old mom then said, "Wait, what are you guys doing exactly?"
Chanel then happily responded, "Twerking!" Coco later asked the little girl, "You're teaching mom how to twerk?" After Tina asked for further instructions and examples, Chanel and her cousin dropped down to dance and twerk, prompting Coco to chime in, "Oh my god. This is what you do when family is over. Oh my god."
Shortly after, many social media users criticized Coco for letting Chanel do the provocative moves. One person wrote, "It's kinda sad a 6 year old knows what twerking is….. jus sayin….." Meanwhile, another added, "I can't say s**t. I'm from the south, we been twerking since birth. It would make me a hypocrite if I was to judge her. But she shouldn't have posted it online, knowing how people are."
A few days earlier, Coco faced another backlash for teaching her daughter to do Yoga and allowing the little girl to wear pink leggings and high-heeled shoes. "I teach Chanel working out and staying healthy," she captioned the photo. "I also tell her if she has flexibility now she'll have it forever. I can vouch for that.. Staying fit is a lifestyle. There's no work at it, it's just what you do everyday."
However, some critics thought Chanel was too young for wearing an adult outfit as well as doing some of those moves. One person asked, "Heels already?" Another chimed in, "There are so many creeps out there, be careful posting pics of her." In the meantime, a third argued, "This mother is not good example for her daughter."
Back in September, Coco also received negative comments after she let Chanel wear French manicure for her school photo. "School Picture day!! For the special occasion I let Chanel do mini tips to her nails..I love doing her hair.. my little doll baby is what I call her.... @babychanelnicole," she captioned her Instagram post at the time.
In the comment section, a critic wrote, "Too young for nails!!!!!" In the meantime, a separate social media user insisted that it'd be better for Coco to embrace Chanel's natural beauty. "I'm sorry but no to tips and makeup at her age. Let her be an adorable little 5 year old," so read the comment.
In August, Coco also made headlines for her decision to keep breastfeeding Chanel. "Chanel still likes my boobs," the model said while sharing her parenting dos and don'ts. "It's a big bonding moment for a mother and your child."
