Fans weigh in after Sherri Shepherd shared her frustrations in dealing with the coronavirus on top of criticisms from her teenage son about her fashion choices.


"The View's" former co-host Sherri Shepherd took a moment to vent about how she was coping amid the coronavirus while dealing with raising a teenager as a single mother, she shared:

"Dealing [with] Corona and a teenager who doesn't like me in leggings."


The comedian shared a video of her son, Jeffrey Charles Tarpley questioning her about what she was wearing. The teenager then proceeded to put aside the soup he was enjoying to scold her about her leggings.

The teenager was clearly not happy with her outfit for the day as he told Sherri, "they are not made for mom. Like, how old are you, mom?"


Sherri responded to his disapproval by stating that she was a mother and implied that it was appropriate for her to wear them, to which Jeffery replied:

"I believe mothers, or older ladies, should not be carrying leggings as a result of it isn't good for them."


Sherri joked about how the whole confrontation surprised her because his focus on her leggings was in the face more serious issues going on in the world, she argued:

"With everything going on in the world…viruses and social distance...a toilet paper shortage for goodness sake!"


Sherri often admits that Jeffery hates taking pictures with her because he knows that she is going to post them on social media. However, the two have notoriously relationship.

She has been raising him as a single mother since she divorced his father, Jeff Tarpley, in 2010. One of her fans commented on the video saying her son doesn't want her wearing legging because the teenager is uncomfortable with his mother looking too attractive for other people to notice.

It reported, Sherri has been vocal in the past with her followers on social media about the struggles of raising a "moody teenager" on top of two child support payments to her ex-husbands.

After divorcing her second husband, Lamar Sally, in 2014, she gave up her rights for a child they conceived together through a surrogate, who a judge ruled she has to pay over $4000 a month in child support.
