Canadian actress Shay Mitchell has come out to reply to haters who came for her for partying days after giving birth.
She was slammed by trolls last week after leaving her days old newborn baby at home to attend Drake’s 33rd birthday party. Mitchell has now clapped back at haters with a sarcastic tweet on Twitter.
The 32-year-old joked that she had abandoned the baby and left her under the care of her dog for the night out.
‘You going out for a few hours doesn’t hurt the baby right, Im sure she left her child in capable hands. new mothers don’t have to stay locked in their home 24/7 to bond with the baby,’ Tweeted a fan.
Shay replied: ‘yeah EXACTLY – I left her with Angel and put water out for both of them :).’
Angel’s in charge! ‘Angel must be a good dog sitter,’ commented one. ‘Angel must be a good dog sitter,’ commented one. Another wrote: ‘Damn. We love mamma bear snapping at tea hunters’ and ‘”there’s snacks in the fridge, and if you need anything, text me”.’
The 32-year-old beauty and boyfriend let their hair down for the night out and captioned a video of themselves dancing with: ‘Parents’ – something which many online users weren’t thrilled about.
‘I understand parents need a night out once in a while, but days after giving birth??’ a Yahoo Canada reader wrote.
‘Sorry but who even wants to be out days after giving birth? Postpartum pads aren’t hot. Stay home and rest your body and bond with your baby.’
‘Disgusted’: Another penned: ‘Im not against parents of babies having a night off but 3 days after you give birth?!?! Are you serious???? Im honestly disgusted. How is she even up and walking around so fast? Childbirth is traumatic. Shows where here priorities are, celebrity or not’
Other users wrote: ‘You picked Drake over your days old newborn?’ Another penned: ‘Im not against parents of babies having a night off but 3 days after you give birth?!?! Are you serious???? Im honestly disgusted. How is she even up and walking around so fast? Childbirth is traumatic. Shows where here priorities are, celebrity or not.’ And: ‘She captioned her video parents but she’s not even being a parent…’
Other users were much kinder to the new mom, standing up for her for enjoying a night out. ‘Man some of the people in this comment sections are SO judgmental and are being rude,’ they began.
‘She wanted to have one night to celebrate Drake’s birthday. She felt comfortable having HER daughter watched by a nanny or family member so that she could go out with her husband. Newsflash many moms are around the first week or so to help out so that we can rest or do things.’
Shay has been friends with Drake for quite some time, with the beauty sharing photos from his celebrations last year online.
Shay announced she had delivered her daughter on Sunday 20th October and accompanied it with a YouTube video of her birth on Monday.
