Coco Austin has come under fire, once again, from social media users questioning her parenting decisions.
On Tuesday, Austin shared a video of her, her daughter Chanel, and a group of family members. During the clip, Chanel began to twerk. And family members proceeded to cheer her on.
Audio of M.C. Shy D’s “Shake It” was added to a short portion of the clip.
In the caption of Austin’s video, she explained that her daughter was trying to imitate Tina Belcher from the television show Bob’s Burgers.
Gotta love family time! The adults in our family were doing a TikTok and Chanel runs out in the middle to bust a move to make us laugh.. She loves to joke #tinabobsburgers #bobsburgers#tinabelcher #dancemoves
Instagram Users React
Austin immediately received backlash from some viewers who quickly took to the video’s comment section.
That is a child. What is wrong with you?
I don’t find this ok, especially on social media. There’s so many sick minds out here, this child’s safety and privacy should be kept better. But, to each their own.
Hmm getting her ready for when she’s grown..not good example
Let it be a black woman cheering her daughter on while she’s Twerking the media will have a field day with it. But a White woman is all giggles and laughs.
SMH just whyyyy , this is not okay !
Other users showed their support for the mother.
Why is everybody harassing her? Its her child, she can do what she wants. If Ice-T dont care, why shoukd you?
All of the people complaining need to be quiet!! This is not your child! If you want to have so much input on the rearing of a child have your own. This baby isn’t doing anything vulgar and had it been anyone else you would have been going on about how cute she is. Y’all sickening 😒
Just a child having fun PLEASE stop making this bigger than a child having fun❤
Ice-T Seemingly Responds To Social Media Critics
Austin’s husband, and Chanel’s father, Ice-T seemingly responded to the criticism directed toward his wife. And shared a quote on his Instagram page.
He also added a short caption.
Christmas is over.. My advice is you go into 2023 with THIS attitude if you want to WIN.
Recent Criticism Directed Toward Austin’s Parenting
As The Shade Room previously reported, Austin recently came under fire for bathing 7-year-old Chanel in a kitchen sink. Social media users weren’t shy to also share their disapproval then.
Now why do Ice T and CoCo have their grown ass daughter bathing in the kitchen sink like she’s a newborn? pic.twitter.com/bLFUgPbQy7

Austin defended her decision then.
Wow just Wow! Here we go again! Giving my lil girl a bath in the sink went viral? SMH. People you gotta know by now that I’m an unconventional mother. I do what works and is easier on me. Some may want to take some pointers rather than rag on me.
According to PEOPLE, Austin got emotional while addressing the constant criticism she receives for her parenting during an episode of the Tamron Hall Show.
I’m underneath a microscope all the time and you don’t hear what good you do. You don’t hear the goodness, you just hear a lot of bad. And I know I’m a good mother… I’ve dedicated the last six years, putting everything aside, my career, everything, just for her. And you just want a little love, you want a little respect from people.
Roommates, what are your thoughts about this incident?
