Janet Mbugua claps back after fan commented on her son’s ‘girly’ toy

Janet hapendangi mchezo.

“Get him to carry a toy car instead of a teddy bear considering he is a boy. Looking good,” wrote @Alvin_yert.

To which Janet replied with “Hun, they should carry whatever makes them happy! He’s got a million cars, he just gets cuddly too!”

Thinking that Janet was combative @Alvin_yert replied with “It was on a light note and not a subject to be debated. Am also a mother of a girl and boy.”

Janet, however, lost her cool and replied with “It’s my response and I don’t see that I responded to you in a combative way. We can and should raise our children how we want. You can’t look at one photo and assume to have the picture. Facts only. Thanks.”

This is how fans reacted to the exchange:

hope_tunye@alvin_yert : you already got the attention girl leave @officialjanetmbugua to be. Just have a pic with yo two kids ..tutalike na kucomment vyema...its never that serious.

waiyaki_suzan : If only some people would mind their business just for once this world would be so peaceful I love you @officialjanetmbugua and your prince charming is allowed to carry whichever type or kind of toy or bear he feels like.

purity__fine_grand_: Every mother knows whats best for their child, who said boys don't need cuddly teddys I have 2 sons and in my house I have several teddys, my seven year has outgrown but he used to keep them in bed ,in fact he gave them names and they were his roommates because since 6 months he has his own bedroom...just be a mother to your child your way
