‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Mom Sues Media For Sexualizing Her Daughter
I’ve seen fleeting moments of ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’. Enough to confirm my opinion of these beauty pageants; while perhaps unintended, they sexualize the participants. The whole idea disgusts me and is repugnant.
I guess I’m in the minority because these things seem to be wildly popular. The television show is hard to ignore. Much like a popular pop song it is everywhere you turn, covered in media and promoted across many networks.
Forgive me then for being a bit stunned at news today that the mother of Isabella is suing several media outlets like TMZ and the Huffington Post for sexualizing her daughter. Apparently there’s a video out there of Isabella singing LMFAO’s “I’m Sexy And I Know It”. Said video being posted, reported and commented on by the now defendant media outlets. For $30 million dollars.
Next up the parents of Tom Brady are suing ESPN for afluencing him.
