His lesbian parents are being accused of child abuse and feminizing their son in some Twitter comments.
Two mothers are feeling the heat in this election as their Twitter feed is inundated with responses to a picture they posted of their 8-year-old son dressed as presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The picture has gone viral and depicts their child dressed in a bright-yellow Hillary-inspired pantsuit, complete with cardboard briefcase emblazoned with her campaign logo.
“Our eight-year-old son is with you Hillary Clinton today and everyday,” they posted on Twitter on Sunday.
Although most reactions to the picture have been positive, there are some who are taking the opportunity to attack not only the family’s political views, but fill the comments section with anti-LGBT rhetoric.
