Lil Scrappy gets slammed over his 2-month-old son meeting white Santa for the 1st time in video
“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star, Lil Scrappy, is getting dragged online for letting his son meet a White Santa.
The Shade Room posted a sweet video of Scrappy’s son, Breland Richardson tucked in the arm of a White Santa Claus at the mall. The little man looked cute in a Burberry-print outfit and knitted booties, and right across from him was his mom, Scrappy’s wife, Bambi Benson.
Unfortunately, many social media users were outraged that the reality star could not find a black Santa for his son and they shared their opinions in the comments.
“Oh so y’all couldn’t find a black Santa either? @adizthebam” ~ @underashadytree
“Too cute... nevertheless, I don't understand why black families choose to take pictures with these made up fairy tale characters that dont exist... if you're going to celebrate the holidays... celebrate something that resignates with your own culture..” ~ @mosesdoosenburg
“They could have found a black Santa.” ~ @_aceofspades__
Scrappy and his wife are yet to respond to the comments, but the chances are that the Atlanta couple is too engrossed with Breland to care much. Since welcoming their son on September 21, Bambi and Scrappy have been over the moon with their bundle of joy.
The “No Love” rapper marked the special day by gushing on Instagram and updating fans on their family’s latest addition.
“Thanks to the big God and my wife and family the young Prince #Breland is here,” Scrappy wrote alongside a photo indicating Breland weighed eight pounds and three ounces at birth. “I’m so happy and blessed from this experience, thanks to my wife @adizthebam for pushing thru like a champ only 3 pushes.”
Breland’s one-month birthday also didn’t go by without an acknowledgment from Scrappy. He shared a pic of himself and Breland in matching gray sweatshirts, and as though that was not enough to have fans swooning, penned a heartfelt note to his only son:
“My lil man one month old and kicking love him like he’s been here forever, he’s another blessing from God and I will treat him as such.”
More recently, Bambi thrilled fans with a video of the father and son engaged in a conversation. Not minding that he was talking gibberish, Scrappy held his young son’s attention, and you could see the love pouring through his eyes.
The 34-year-old is also a doting dad to his teenage daughter, Emani Richardson, from a previous relationship.
Netizens may fault this man for many things, but Scrappy can never be guilty of not loving his children.
