Loyal supporters of “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Joseline Hernandez are going toe-to-toe with detractors judging her parenting choices.
For years now, the self-proclaimed “Puerto Rican Princess” has been dealing with people micro-managing her every little move when it comes to her daughter Bonnie Bella. However, the reality veteran has seemingly kept her composure, ostensibly refusing to clap back at the negative Nellies as her fans on the other hand defend her and her toddler’s honor.
The 32-year-old mother took to Instagram on Sunday with a photo of her 2-year-old sitting by the pool. However, the issue most folks seemed to have with the image was that Bonnie Bella wasn’t wearing a shirt, only swim bottoms and a hat. That and her bare back was showing.
Hernandez apparently didn’t see anything wrong with the picture of her baby girl and captioned it, “Hey girl!”
Nevertheless, the post was denounced by social media trolls who deemed it inappropriate, slamming the reality star for posting the image of her daughter on the Internet.
“Where is her shirt?” one person asked. “You are no longer just in your home when you post things on social media but considering Joseline never have any clothes on .”
“Joseline is revealing this baby’s chest! Since u a thot, doesn’t mean u have to raise ur daughter that way!”
“Princess needs a top she’s still a little girl no hating over here.”
Folks immediately defended Hernandez against those commenting on her parenting.
“Stop coming for @joseline as a mother!!” one fan said. “Ya’ll can’t even see the chest and she’s in her own back yard she don’t need a top.. she’s good.”
Another added, “All you mfs haters know good and well Joseline loves her daughter to death and would never put her in harms way… so stop the bulls–t!”
“Leave it to adults to make an innocent picture (negative) . Y’all are weird for looking at a baby like that. Tryna hide it talmbout “there are perverts online” … yea and you are one of them if you are looking at a baby like that. She’s at home chillin leave her and Joseline alone!”
Hernandez has yet to respond to critics. She told Huffington Post during a 2017 interview that she’s often unfazed by the criticism she receives in general and that people are entitled to their own opinions.
“Everybody’s able to say whatever they want, feel however they feel, and it’s not really a big deal to me because if I choose to live my life in front of the media then I need to take what they give,” she said.
