Reality star and singer Jessica Simpson is coming under fire for her parenting style. On Sunday, she posted a video of her four-year-old son flipping in the pool.
People are angry because the little boy has a cast on his arm. They think her parenting style is the reason that he's in a cast.
In the video, Simpson's husband Eric Johnson can be seen horsing around with their son, Ace, in the swimming pool. The video is catching the attention of the internet on Wednesday.
As Johnson tosses Ace into the air, you can see the green cast on his arm. He's in the air for a few seconds for flipping back into the water.
“A broken bone doesn’t hold this kiddo down #waterproofcast #ACEKNUTE,” Simpson captioned the video.
Critics rapidly appeared in the comment section. The censured Simpson for her decision to let her son play in the pool with a broken arm.
“Wow-no wonder the kid has a broken arm,” remarked one follower.
Another added, “I had no idea it’s possible to swim with a broken arm! Probably not the best choice."
Another user referenced Simpson's a famous scene from her reality show past when she didn't know the difference between chicken and tuna: “This doesn’t seem very smart to me but then again I know the difference between chicken and tuna."
Despite the outcry, some of the singer's fans came to her defense. They made it clear that her son was just having a happy childhood.
“Enjoy kid. Nothing wrong with this at ALL,” a follower shared. “Some people just want to nit pick everything.”
“I can’t believe people are upset with you for letting your son have such an awesome childhood!! That was the best flip I think I’ve ever seen a kid do in the water!! You guys rock ❤,” penned another.
Earlier in June, Simpson revealed that her four-year-old had broken his arm.
“This kid is breaking more than hearts these days #FirstBrokenBone #ICriedMoreThanHeDid #ACEKNUTE,” the Simpson posted.
