People had a lot to say about Jessica Simpson playing with her kid in the pool with a broken arm in a video on Instagram.
She captioned the photo “A broken bone doesn’t hold this kiddo down #waterproofcast,” after her husband, former NFL player Eric Johnson tossed their son up in the air.
And of course, the parenting police came out in droves:
“I had no idea it’s possible to swim with a broken arm! Probably not the best choice,”
“Love you, Jess, but why throw a kid with a cast on? Even in water.” A third called the stunt “the most ridiculous thing to be doing as a parent.”
But her fans defended her: “Those parents who judge are probably the very parents whose kids are the ones with the worst issues.” and then loads of examples of having to play sports with broken bones, how resilient kids are, and “leave Jessica alone”
