“T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle” star Reginae Carter is under fire for a recent family photo she posted of her and her baby sister Reign Rushing.
Carter took to Instagram on March 10 and posted a few family portraits of herself, her 1-year-old sister and her mother Toya Wright. They appeared to be outside of Wright’s Atlanta home, snapping adorable family shots on the balcony. However, their sweet moment was short-lived after fans began dragging the 20-year-old celeb.
“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten 💓,” Carter wrote on her social media along with her family snaps.
Fans were immediately unsettled with one photo in particular, ostensibly showing Carter kissing her little sister baby Reign on the mouth. Folks accused the star of “spreading bacteria” to the toddler and cautioned her to stop doing such thing.
“Nobody should be kissing babies in their mouth especially when their giving oral to their cheating ass boyfriend 🤦🏽♀️,” one person wrote underneath the star’s picture. “Kissing kids in their mouth with all this bacteria is horrible.”
“Beautiful 🥰but we gotta stop kissin lil baby in the mouth 😪,” another fan commented. ”
Stop kissing her wit ur d–k lips 😢.”
“This a beautiful picture but I feel like being as though you’re sexually active with someone you shouldn’t kiss her in her mouth 💯,” someone else wrote. “It’s nasty don’t do that!”
Other folks jumped to Carter’s defense.
“Leave her alone!” one exclaimed. “Ya’ll always find something rude to say how tf ya’ll know what she be doing.”
“Ya’ll go away! She can do what she wants damn it’s her little sister 🙄 she not harming her.”
The former “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” actress is used to the criticism she often receives from social media due to her rapper father Lil Wayne‘s success. She told BET during a 2017 interview that she enjoys being in the spotlight although she often feels pressure.
“I never was scared of cameras. I always loved cameras, so yeah I like that attention,” Carter said. “[But] I feel like people put pressure on me for no reason. … They don’t look at me like this little girl growing up, they look at me as Lil Wayne’s daughter and Toya’s daughter growing up.”
She added, “I still make mistakes. I still do things, like, I’m growing up. I have to learn from my mistakes. I feel like people think that since you have fame and money, you’re different.”
