This week, the author and mum of seven (she has two step kids with partner Denim Cooke), has attracted a barrage of the latter.
She posted this photo that shows her, her freshly born son Raja, and his dad, Cooke, to Facebook, and people were not happy:
This is the essence of the backlash:
How dare Hall have her phone in her hand, chillaxing with a drink as if on vacay, and not be staring lovingly at her newborn son?
“Obviously googling parental advice,” is one example of the mean-spirited comments.
Others felt it necessary to provide feedback on Hall’s dietary choices, implying the question as to what kind of mother would ‘poison’ a child she was breastfeeding with a carbonated beverage – nay – a soft drink?
Look, we understand: if you’re not the subject of unsolicited advice and judgement, how do you even know you’re a mother? These trolls were just being…supportive.
