*Many parents appreciate and enjoy social media as a means to share photos and news of their children with friends and family – especially if they live all over the country.
Ciara Logan is one such mom. The Henrico County, Va., mom is tuned in to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and regularly posts pictures of her three children.
But she may think twice now, after seeing photos of her kids on a strangers Instagram account, with a derogatory caption to boot.
She told CBS 6: “This has taught me a lesson.”
According to the report, Logan, who works as an information technology specialist, is the mother of an 8-year-old boy and twin 2-year-old girls. She was scrolling through her Instagram and noticed that a stranger had “liked” three of her pictures that did not include the children. Curious, she went over to check out his page, and saw a photo of her children featured as a meme with a caption declaring, “Harpo just won’t let them girls be.”
According to Logan, the photo—which features her son dressed up in a white suit, with his sisters on either side—was just weeks old.
“To insinuate that my son is a pimp—or that my son is selling cars—because he has on a suit and he has two little girls with him—or to hashtag, ‘Keep him away from those girls,’ as if to say my son is a predator,” she said.
“He’s an 8-year-old boy who is very caring, very loving, very nourishing, very protective of his sisters.”
The children’s grandmother was also offended. “To have someone display my grandchildren with so much negative connotations and distastefulness … I was just in awe, and it needs to stop.”
Showing true cowardice, the poster blocked the mother, who tried to reach him; and changed his profile name and later, his user name.
