Famous YouTuber Mom Deactivates Channel After Forcing Upset Son To ‘Act Like You’re Crying’ For Video Thumbnail
On 20th September 2021
Jordan Cheyenne uploaded an unedited video mistakenly where she is seen forcing her already upset son to make crying faces to share the devastating news about their dog's illness. What is infuriating is Cheyenne forcing her child to show more tears even though the kid already looks traumatized. Following the serious backlash, Cheyenne has deleted her social media accounts now and is claiming to focus on her 'family's wellbeing and health' for now.
An unbelievable controversy to hit a Youtube creator, a LosAngeles mom has deactivated her account after she mistakenly uploaded a video where she was seen forcing her child to cry to pose for a video thumbnail.
Jordan Cheyenne, who has around 530K followers on her social media, uploaded a video a few days back where she titled her video, “We are heartbroken”.
According to the Daily Dot, the news came after her puppy was found to have parvovirus, a highly contagious infection that can cause severe illness and death in unvaccinated dogs.
The now-deleted video has since been reposted online, and shows Cheyenne telling her son Christian to “act like you’re crying”.
Christian, clearly upset, replies: “I am crying.”
Cheyenne then continues to pose several poses with her crying son before ending the clip. However, in creating her fake video, the mom forgets to edit out that shameful part and uploads the entire video.
Alongside deleting her YouTube channel, Cheyenne has removed her Instagram account. Her Twitter profile, which has been inactive since April, remains online.
Twitter users have responded to the video with disgust, anger, and heavy criticism and calling out the mom for her failed parenting.
Only a day after the backlash, Cheyenne appeared on The Dad Challenge Podcast – hosted by Joshua Barbour – and said she was “literally horrified at myself” after watching the footage back.
“I should have taken such a step back in a vulnerable moment and my son was already crying and cries were very genuine. Creating a thumbnail should have been the last thing on my mind and I can’t even watch it back because it’s so cringe.
“I think what’s best for me going forward is to not include Christian in my YouTube content,” she said.
In another statement to the Daily Dot, Cheyenne stated that she has taken down her social media accounts because “nothing matters but the health and wellbeing of my child”.
She said: “Getting completely offline, cancelling all my videos and monetisation, and prioritising my child are all I care about. I’m disgusted and horrified at what I did and there is absolutely no excuse. It’s terrible on so many levels.
“I love my child more than anything and will regret this moment forever. I will not be going on any interviews or doing any PR or spending hours commenting on people’s videos about me. The right thing to do is get offline completely and prioritise family.”
