Jaleel White from 'Family Matters' Slammed by Fans for Going out with Daughter Samaya to Buy Ice-Cream

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, "Family Matters" star Jaleel White stepped out with his daughter to buy ice cream, and his followers are not happy about the act.

While many people have been restricted to staying indoors, Jaleel White went the opposite route by taking his daughter, Samaya White, out for ice cream.

The "Family Matters" alum had taken to Instagram to share an image of him and Samaya at an ice cream shop with the caption, "We just need two pints. Nobody gets hurt. #socialdistancing We miss you Bianca."

Jaleel shares Samaya with his former girlfriend, Bridget Hardy. The couple's relationship had started in 2006 and split some time between 2009 and 2012, with them welcoming their daughter in 2009.

Although the posts got a few thousand likes, his fans were quick to call him out for not being in his house. While one person asked if the instruction to "stay at home" meant nothing to him, another stated that Jaleel "really needed to be indoors."

A third Instagram user simply asked the actor to stay inside. Others, however, saw nothing wrong with the image as they praised him for being a good father to his girl.

Meanwhile, I Love Old School Music recounted that Jaleel shares Samaya with his former girlfriend, Bridget Hardy. The couple's relationship had started in 2006 and split some time between 2009 and 2012, with them welcoming their daughter in 2009.

During that period, their romantic relationship allegedly suffered more than a few bumps in the road. While Jaleel and Bridget were still dating, Bridget had accused Jaleel of cheating and domestic violence.

Jaleel has since denied the allegations as he claimed that it was just a ploy for his ex-girlfriend to get money from him. Despite their rocky relationship, Jaleel has continued to spend time with his daughter, and the pair have even taken trips to movie sets.

When he was filming for his role as Dwayne on the movie "Faithfully," the actor had taken Samaya along to the set which was in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

As regards the "stay at home" order from the US government, CNN mentioned that the American government had initiated the US National Guard in three of the hardest-hit states – California, Washington, and New York.

The deployment emerged as more than a hundred million people in at least eight states have mandates from their governors to stay home to control the spread of the virus.
