Big Sister to the Rescue
A few negative Instagram users struck a nerve with Reginae Carter. After The Shade Room reposted a shot of Tiny Harris and Toya Wright’s newborn baby Reign, some viewers only had bad things to say, picking on the infant’s looks and skin color.
When big sister Reginae learned that people were calling her one and only little sister ugly, she went o f f. In an Instagram Live video, the 19-year-old let everyone know that if they didn’t have anything nice to say, it would be best if they said nothing at all. “I’ve swallowed my thoughts and everything all the time. I don’t say nothing. But the people on The Shade Room under those comments… Y’all are pathetic,” Reginae said emotionally.
When Tiny, a close friend of Toya’s, posted her first picture with Reign, fans could tell that she was super excited to meet the little one for the first time. Sitting in the newborn’s nursery, Tiny can be seen holding the baby girl while starring at her adoringly.
“Finally got to meet my beautiful niece @reign_beaux,” the “Just Kickin’ It” crooner captioned the post. “She didn’t wanna wake up for nothing! Another Babygirl to spoil.” The sweet moment received nothing but love… until it found its way onto The Shade Room‘s Instagram. After the outlet reposted the photo, trolls came from far and wide to comment on the infant’s appearance. Some even talked about Toya, who gave birth to her and Robert Rushing‘s daughter at the beginning of February.
“Who is Toya Wright again and why should we care about her?” commented Instagram user blackholesun00. “Society has reached a new low idolizing these nobodies.”
Their negative comments didn’t go unnoticed.
Though The Shade Room deleted the repost, Reginae had already caught wind of the negativity being blown towards her little sister. Hopping on Instagram Live, she said, “Come for me. Tell me my edges messed up. Tell me I do this, I do that, I’m spoiled, I’m a spoiled brat… You can call me anything, but about Reign… That is a baby.”
“She can’t even say, ‘Shut up.’ That’s what she needs to tell y’all, but she can’t even say that yet,” she continued. “So, therefore, don’t speak about her. You say she’s cute, and that’s all. That’s it.”
“There’s no baby on this Earth that’s ugly. How could you say a baby is ugly? You’re stupid. That’s what you are,” she added, before saying that the negative people had her “mad” and “heated.”
Fans of the family followed Reginae’s lead, sounding off against little Reign’s haters too. Instagram user mathis8707 wrote, “Are some of you REALLY talking about a BABY?!?! Social media has turned people into a bunch of bi**hes. Y’all degrading a baby but if someone called you or your children ugly you’d be ready to fight.”
“It’s no wonder so many celebs do not show pics of their kids!! Any of you saying these things about a BABY, if you are parents, why don’t you try and picture someone talking about YOUR child!” user crookshanks_82 chimed in. “I guarantee many would wanna put hands on whoever was ignorant enough to say something negative about your baby!”
“It’s like people do not even think before they hit that post button. Shame on all of you who think it’s OK to put any negativity on a sweet little newborn,” they added.
