Fans slam Zach & Tori Roloff after a recently posted 'risky' photo of baby Jackson
Reality TV star, Tori Roloff, had to set the record straight after she shared a photo of her 11-month old son on social media.
Tori, who will celebrate her 27th birthday on May 3, 2018, simply wanted to share a beautiful father-and-son moment but fans thought baby Jackson was in danger.
Jackson can be seen sitting on his father's lap, while Zach, in turn, sits on a commercial grade lawnmower. The farm-themed photo also shows a barn in the background.
As reported by Pop Culture, the reason for concern was simply a misunderstanding, as some of Tori's 690,000 followers thought that the lawnmower's engine was running.
An Instagram user known as Sheila White was very vocal with her criticism and returned to the post several times to share her complaints.
She asked the young parents if they 'realize how dangerous that is,' and said that a 'simple bump' could cause the child to fall off and lose his limbs, or that it could result in death.
When Tori's fans asked Sheila to mind her own business, she responded that she is simply worried about Jackson's safety because she knows of 'many cases' where children were injured.
Not all the feedback was negative. Lynne Uutinen said Zach was 'raised on a farm,' and added that he is probably more aware of the safety precautions than the average man on the street.
Another user known only as Maggie said photographing Jackson and Zach on the lawnmower was about 'making memories and sharing experiences.'
She also asked all the naysayers to 'please stop assuming [the parents] are ignorant young people,' and added that she adores this photo of baby Jackson.
Ashley Hallman remarked that her children also help her 'mow the yard.' She added that Tori seems like an 'amazing mama,' and apologized on behalf of all the people who were criticizing them.
According to Inquisitr, a young girl lost her life in September 2017 when her father rode over her with a lawnmower.
Tori later edited the caption to include: 'Guys, the mower wasn't on.'
