Ciara Gets Mom-Shamed: You Risked Your Baby's LIFE!

by at .  Updated at .

Uh-oh, the mommy-shamers are after Ciara now!

Ciara posted a fun video (which we have for you, below) of herself on a ride with her newborn daughter, and both Instagram and Twitter got up-in-arms about her, saying that she'd endangered her baby's life!

Honestly ... this is a tough one.

Ciara captioned the video, which you can watch below, with an innocuous and celebratory message.

"I wish I could put into words how fun this was! Going down in the toboggan at the #GreatWallOfChina with my family."

That sounds fun ... and like a little advertising for this ride.

You see her strapped into her ride along with Sienna Princess, her three-month-old baby daughter.

Honestly, we probably wouldn't advice vacationing with a three-month-old, period.

But that's another subject and probably overly cautious and, honestly, not what this controversy is about.

It's the ride, with the potential twists and turns and the possible impact on a developing brain and a not-quite-complete skeletal system (especially that neck and spine), is the source of controversy and outrage.

Ciara had more than her share of detractors, on both Twitter and Instagram.

Here are just a few examples of the "feedback" that she and her video received:

"Has your attention-seeking narcissism as a couple affected your parenting decisions too? This is ridiculous. She's 3 months old."

It is 2017 -- are we still using narcissistic personality disorder as an insult?

"Isn’t this too dangerous for a newborn? It may be fun but doing this with an infant to your chest is not smart at all."

We'd hope that Ciara would look it up.

Also, she's 31 -- a grown-ass adult.

Sienna isn't even her first kid.

Some of the criticisms were more nuanced.

"Honestly not trying to shame Ciara, but this was VERY dangerous. What if the thing had malfunctioned? Don't believe people are trying to say she is a dumb parent, but it was a dumb decision, IMO."

Malfunctions would be dangerous for anyone of any age.

It sounds like that person is opposed to literally all rides.

Cute Ciara

Ciara and Russell also had people leap to their defense on Twitter and in Instagram comments.

(This isn't the first time that Ciara's fans and haters have clashed on social media)

"I really wish people would think before they speak. Ci and Russ would never put their children in any kind of danger."

That makes sense.

There are a lot of idiot parents in the world, don't get us wrong.

(Like ... a lot)

But, like we said, this isn't even Ciara's first baby.

And, as this defender explains, this isn't like going on a rollercoaster:

"They are going really slow, they control the speed. And the baby is strapped to her mother, in the carrier... So calm down it's not that deep."

We love just about any defense that ends with "it's not that deep."

Still ... this does look a bit bumpy for a baby.

Maybe more to the point, if Ciara was keeping it moving slowly to keep baby Sienna safe, wouldn't that make things less fun for all of the people behind her?

We're not saying that moms can't ride rides -- they absolutely can.

We're just saying that there's a chance that Ciara took an unnecessary risk, here.

(Though not to the degree that the mommy-shamers suggest)

And there's also a chance that she was being a little selfish when she decided to ride the ride.

Watch the video and decide for yourself if you think that Ciara should have opted out:
