Mum-of-two Jordan Lee Jones had to deal with disgusting comments after posting a naked photo of her two-year-old daughter Winter playing on the beach on Monday.
Several people even reported the photo, which resulted in Instagram removing it for breaking the site’s rules.
However, it wasn’t the fact that she was naked that seemed to upset people – it was the colour of her skin.
The first comment she received said:
“It’s disgusting to see how dark your daughters skin is.
“Have you heard of suncream?How about you start using it before your kid looks 40 at four. Horrible mother.”
She was shocked by the message and decided to share another post to explain..
“I was receiving a whole lot of kind messages and decided to post the photo explaining that we have an Aboriginal heritage on my mothers side so our skin is naturally dark and tans no matter how much sunscreen and zinc we wear.
“I also called trolls out and made them aware that I am a real person with real feelings and emotions! I’m not just a robot.”
However when she woke up the next morning she found out the original photo had been removed .
She said: “
I woke up, got the kids organised and sat down to check my Instagram only to open up my feed and have a notification from Instagram telling me I had breached their community guidelines.
“The photo has been reported to Instagram numerous times. I was appalled and emailed the Instagram email but have not yet received a reply.”
And more upsettingly, it wasn’t just one person who reported it.
When she found out what had happened she posted another message on her page voicing her outrage.
“Woke up this morning to see my post had been removed from Instagram because more then a few people had reported it.”I am disgusted at the thought that people who follow me Condon that ladies bullying and racist remarks.”My child’s skin is beautiful, I take all necessary measures to ensure her skin is protected and I wake up every dam day striving to be the best mother possible.”If you don’t like my posts or our skin colour offends you please just unfollow.”
She decided to rise above it and decided not to mention the shocking incident again on her page.
