An Ohio woman received a lot of heat after posting these “funny” photos of her 2-month-old granddaughter.
One picture shows the baby with a pacifier duct taped to her face while another shows her in a roasting pan. Both photos received such huge backlash that authorities were called to the family’s home.
“Duct-taping a child’s pacifier to their mouth, covering up their option to spit that pacifier out, give their airway, this is crazy,” Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said. “It’s dangerous.”
“It was on 10, 15 seconds,” the child’s grandmother defended. “Long enough to take a picture.”
“When we applied it there were no red marks,” the girl’s mom also added. “Everyone said she had a black eye and a bruised forehead.”
While there were no criminal charges filed, child services and police are taking the matter seriously.
“What we think is funny that other people don’t,” the mom later conceded. “We would never go out of our way to harm these children. Ever. Ever.”
