Mom sparks backlash after buying 300 presents for kids
ABritish mom has drawn the ire of social media for buying her children 300 Christmas presents, according to social media. Emma Tapping, a 27-year-old mom of three who lives in the Isle of Man in the U.K. shared a photo of her Christmas tree on photo-sharing site Instagram. The tree could barely be seen behind a huge pile of presents.
Her photo went viral with over 50,000 shares with one online user putting a caption underneath that read: “Nearly time for all the materialistic parents to compete and broadcast how many presents their kids have on Facebook! Just remember theres some children who dont get much [sic].”
The image sparked a backlash against the mom who was even accused of “abuse” by spoiling her children, misunderstanding the true spirit of Christmas and “pressie-bragging”.
Tapping was unrepentant, however, reposting the offending picture of the tree and present pile on her Facebook account. -MSN.com
