Over the weekend, Reddit user zmegz posted what he thought was an adorable picture of his one-year-old daughter. So when a stream of negative comments calling her “fat” started to roll in, he was shocked.
“My fiancé posted a picture of our daughter on Daddit yesterday and accidentally published it to Imgur,” the child’s mother posted on Reddit forum BeyondTheBump.
“Two people said she was unhealthily overweight and that we should take better care of her. My 14 month old. Who is perfectly healthy and thriving at a normal weight. Chunky babies run in both of our families.”
“It makes me so sad that at 1 year old, she is already getting negative comments about her weight.”
Reddit users were quick to come to the mother’s aid, suggesting she not listen to negativity from commenters on the internet.
“My husband posted a picture of our newborn on Daddit and someone replied that they hoped she died of SIDS,”wrote The_Bravinator. “It didn’t really bother me because it was just someone trying to get a rise out us with no real power or anything personal behind it, but it shows the quality of people these websites sometimes harbour…”
“Your daughter is beautiful. My girls are really small and have trouble gaining weight – I would be THRILLED if they looked like her in a couple months! Good grief she’s adorable,” said TeamUnicornFart.
“Cute! She is chunky, but jeez ya Imgur jerk babies come in all shapes and sizes!” added AllDayDreamer.
