It’s been less than a week since Teen Mom’s Farrah Abraham blogged about trying to wax her daughter’s eyebrows, instead eventually tweezing them after an early flub with the hot wax. This would probably have been a touching coming-of-age story if Abraham’s daughter, Sophia, was at any sort of reasonable age. However, Sophia is 3 years old, and Abraham’s narrative earned a ton of criticism from blogs and other news sources, instead.
The former reality star is defending the removal of her daughter’s hair and even sat down with ABC News to talk about the decision to remove what she calls a “unibrow.” The young mother even took to Twitter to defend her decision.
“#Unibrow's are not sacred! Do the right thing #tweeze no matter what age :)”
The 20-year-old later recanted a little when speaking with ABC News, stating that tweezing might have been an extreme measure, but also noting Sophia had been getting called out and criticized for her unibrow and she wanted to help her with the issue. Her new Twitter attitude?
“Sophia's beautiful with unibrow or without! Point is take care of your child's hygiene :)”
I’m still not certain if it’s more awful that she thought tweezing her young child’s eyebrows was a good idea or that she’s still defending her behavior. However, I guess the damage has already been done and it’s too late to take the decision back. Here’s hoping she doesn’t get too excited with the tweezers when that hair grows back, although I wouldn’t hold my breath.
