The internet is slamming a father who allegedly cut his daughter’s hair after she was treated to highlights for her birthday.
Christin Johnson posted a series of photos to Facebook after her daughter Kelsey returned home from visiting her father and stepmother.
“This is what my daughter looked like Sunday when I took her home and the other two pics is what happened today before she was brought to me… all over me having highlights put in her hair for her birthday!” she wrote.
Allegedly, the teen’s father and stepmom were upset about the teen’s new highlights and took her punishment into their own hands.
The Facebook post has gone viral with more than 34,000 reactions and 1,200 comments, with some followers even saying this should be considered a form of child abuse.
“Kelsey, you are a beautiful young woman. Do not let the actions of these two monsters ruin your confidence. If they cannot accept that you are beautiful and can express yourself in this way, then they do not deserve your consideration. I hope you are feeling loved and supported,” commented one Facebook user.
“This is outright child abuse. What is wrong with these people? I would not leave my child alone with these people again,” added another.
According to Fox 8 News, Haskins Police Department is investigating the situation as a case of child abuse. Both the father and stepmother have been suspended from their jobs as firefighters.
