Dad's Parenting Picture Goes Viral For Wrong Reasons

Posted: Updated:

A doting dad, posts a heart-warming picture of himself bonding with his two little girls, and its making its way around the Internet, but the reasons are not all good.

A Los Angeles dad has a blog called "Doin Daddy Work, Adventures Of A First Time Dad Raising His Daughters," and a lot of people read it. He posted a picture back in October, but it has suddenly caught on and everybody is talking about it because of all the negative comments.

Doyin Richards, the dad at the center of all this, told Yahoo Shine that his wife was running late that morning and thought he couldn't handle the baby and get the other daughter's hair done. So he decided to prove his wife wrong. The picture shows him with a baby carrier and doing his daughter's hair.

The blog picture was reposted by another blog called The Good Men Project in late December, and it suddenly went viral because of comments from haters. Here are some of the negative comments people posted.

"He probably rented those kids. They don't even look like him," one said.

"I would bet anything that you're a deadbeat," said another.

"So do you do this for all of your illegitimate kids?" writes a third.

In response, dad posted an excerpt from his own version of MLK'S "I Have A Dream Speech."

He says: I have a dream that insecure dads will spend less time hating on good dads and more time on getting their own stuff together

His wife half Japanese, half white, and he wishes society would stop focusing so much on archaic distinctions like the color of skin.
