Some social media users have blasted the tot’s parents for the snaps. One of them went to social media saying, “It’s a child not a f***** toy!”

“Shame on you parents,” another user posted.

One parent sympathized with the child, “Poor little girl …not playing as others…but adults are playing with you…Damn! You are five years old.”

“She’s so sweet and beautiful BUT she should be like a child. She is a child. And she can NEVER be in that age. Let her be a child. She can be gorgeous when she grow up,” another parent sympathized.

One user noted that this could affect the young girl psyche and future relationships because she is being taught that the only way to please people is by being attractive and growing followers. She also warned against the exposure to people who are pedophiles, following the little girl with perverted intentions. The user asked the parents to keep this within the family and friends circle.
