Ice T has a robust internet presence. He routinely goes viral on Twitter, most recently to tell a robbery joke about high gas prices. His wife, Coco Austin, and daughter, Chanel, are no strangers to Internet fame either. The internet abounded when Coco posted a video of Chanel teaching her grandmother how to twerk.

But internet popularity is a double-edged sword, and now the family sees its disadvantages. In a recent Twitter post, Coco shared a photo of Chanel in a stroller at a mall in the Bahamas, writing that the child was “so over it unless there is something cool to see.” It turned out to be controversial.

The post got an immediate setback as many commentators expressed their perception that Chanel was too old to be in a stroller. “She’s a sweet, but sorry you two have her in a pram and she’s in elementary school,” wrote one user, @lamalwaysrealru.

This is not the first criticism Coco has received for her parenting style. Back in 2019, Austin shared photos of her breastfeeding Chanel, who was four years old at the time. Criticism quickly poured in, and even Ice T had to step in and defend his wife’s decision. Coco was not deterred by the internet’s distain, and posted another breastfeeding photo a few months later. A year later, she continued to defend the nursing Chanel, who was then five.

This does not mean that Coco’s parents only have haters. Many appeared in her comments to justify her use of a stroller. “Why does anyone care if the child is in a stroller?” wrote @RainCAdams. “Little children get tired!”
