Bragging rights for cutest baby on Facebook turns ugly
Portland, OR – What began as a few proud mothers sharing photos of their babies on Facebook turned ugly last Friday when a cat fight broke out on the Internet. It seems that a few mothers were not content with simply posting photos of their own children but had taken the extraordinary step of trash-talking other babies.
Comments ranging from ‘your baby is a bed-wetter’ to ‘I’ve seen used diapers that are cuter’ have been appearing more and more frequently on Facebook, the popular social media website. Although most of the posts are made under assumed names, savvy Internet users have been able to track the guilty parties down by their IP addresses.
“I challenge any bitch who says she has a cuter baby than mine,” boasted a proud Francoise Ly, to no one in particular.
“Pffft,” replied Kieu Ho. “The diaper rash on my son’s butt is cuter than her kid!”
Social media experts say the epicenter of the cat fight is Portland, Oregon, but that similar incidents have unfolded throughout cyber space, with hot mommies across the country calling each other out. Health officials attribute the online cat fighting to a rare form of post partem depression that is particularly prevalent in new mothers.
“Clearly, this is just estrogen run amuck,” said social media expert Daryle Rico. “Personally, I blame Instagram and the smart phone.”
