A YouTuber mother has deleted her channel with half a million subscribers after she accidentally shared an unedited video of her coaching her son to cry when their puppy was diagnosed with parvovirus.
30-year-old Jordan Cheyenne describes herself as a ‘beauty and lifestyle content creator.’ She started her channel in 2013 and often shared videos about raising her son as a single parent.
But in the recent video titled ‘We are heartbroken,’ Cheyenne told her followers that her family’s dog had been diagnosed with parvovirus.
At the end of the clip, she can be seen coaching her son to pose for the camera and cry.
“Act like you’re crying,” she tells her son, to which he replies: “I am crying! I am actually, seriously sad.”
Because of the criticism, the mother said that she would stop including her 9-year-old son in her clips.
However, she continued to face backlash until she decided to delete her channel and focus on her son’s health and wellbeing.’
Cheyenne said in a statement: “Getting completely offline, canceling all videos and monetization, and prioritizing my child are all I care about.
“I’m disgusted and horrified at what I did and there is absolutely no excuse. It’s terrible on so many levels. I love my child more than anything and will regret this moment forever.”
Speaking about the offending video, Cheyenne said: “In the ending of the video, I was so emotionally worn out… I had christian on my shoulder and I was like ‘come pose for the thumbnail with me’ after the video… I shouldn’t have done that.
“I wish I could show us at the vet crying and being so emotional with everything that happened. But then if I did that, you know what people will say? ‘Why are you filming your son crying? Why are you filming the emotional moment?’”
The mother said that she had received “hateful, violent, cussing” messages on Instagram because of the video.
“Me trying to get that thumbnail was just so wrong and such poor judgement of me, but that doesn’t condone bullying and harassment,” she added.
