Not only has this recently horrific incident enraged the internet…it has enraged me too.
An influencer mom went online to say she hurt her hand after beating her 2-year-old for ruining her makeup and I seriously wish this was made up.
Despite the backlash she deservedly got, she then hopped on Twitter to defend her actions.
Please prepare yourself before reading further because these details are completely distressing.
YouTube; Michelle Grace holds up her ruined eyeshadow palette in the photo above
23-year-old Michelle Grace is a beauty influencer active on YouTube, and she is also the mom of a 2-year-old daughter.
Apparently, her 2-year-old ruined an eye-shadow palette she has from Jeffree Star Cosmetics which has since been discontinued, and she thought it was completely appropriate to “beat” her daughter over it.
Michelle uploaded a video to her YouTube channel called “My Toddler Ruined My JSC Alien Palette|Now I’m sad…” and in it, she explains what she did to her poor daughter.
She has since deleted the video, but there are tons of clips from it still floating around social media right now.
While Michelle talks to her viewers in her video, her 2-year-old daughter is crying uncontrollably in the background, which she acknowledges by saying, “Y’all hear that right?”
“My two-year-old just got her a** beat because no matter how many times I tell her not to mess with my makeup, she never f***ing listens.”
“I put it away so she can’t find it and what does she do? She freaking finds it.”
Michelle then goes on to say in her video that her daughter destroyed her eyeshadow palette.
“She has ruined two palettes of mine and one of them is being discontinued.”
“My hand hurts because I just beat the cr** out of her.”
“Not literally, but I taught her a lesson because I’ll be damned if she’s going to walk all over me.”
Michelle then took to Twitter to defend what she did to her daughter, but she deleted those tweets and her entire Twitter account, too.
“She’s a lot smarter than you guys think,” Michelle began her Twitter defense with.
“She’s the most intelligent toddler I know. She knows right from wrong. So yes she knew what she was doing.”
“She also knows that she’s not to touch my makeup unless she asks and I help.”
Michelle also tries to play it all off by saying, “The rest was honestly me going on about how broke and sad I was.”
Are you kidding me? The fact that she even had the guts to defend abusing her child over makeup is unreal.
“I said what I needed to,” Michelle continued in defending her decision.
“Think what you will of me. At the end of the day I know who I am and so do the people who actually know me.”
I did share a link to her original video on my Twitter here.
