Farrah Abraham is no stranger to being shamed. The former Teen Mom star shares a lot of herself on social media and sometimes that brings out the trolls. That's just what happened this weekend when the 28-year-old posted a video of herself on a yacht, showing off her body in a tiny red bikini as she seductively danced to violinist THMPSN, who was playing a Frank Sinatra song next to her. It normally wouldn't have gotten too much of a reaction, except that people who also follow Farrah's daughter Sophia on TikTok noticed that the 10-year-old was onboard the same boat, no doubt watching her mom film the video.
Commenters let their opinions be known, writing things like, "And your daughter was with you!! Mom of the year right there!!! I feel so bad for Sophia...you seriously need help!!!" and, "I only follow you because I like to see just how much further you will go in destroying you and Sophia’s life. You need help Farrah!"
TMZ caught up with Farrah and asked her about the backlash. She said it was overblown explaining, "We live in a household together, we are fairly open. There's nothing wrong with a woman being fully dressed in clothing, if that's a bikini set or whatever. I feel like a lot of moms are sex shamed, which I definitely have been in my life."
She went on to say, "I think when I am single, gorgeous, young and beautiful, I would almost regret looking back at my life not living a happy, outgoing life. And I would definitely hope my daughter's never shamed to cover up herself, and not be her happiest."
Farrah then described how mature Sophia is for her age, saying, "She started having B.O., she started having armpit hair. Our kids are going through puberty, and luckily, my daughter is more well-behaved than other kids and her other peers."
Abraham also implied that Sophia likely didn't even see her film the bikini video, stating, "She was over there making TikToks and having fun and dancing. The yacht's kind of big, so if some of us are in the front and we're just dancing and having fun — like my friend's playing his violin and his girlfriend's there."
