The photo, which was posted on Instagram but has since been deleted, showed her son and daughter in their new home’s playroom, complete with a blown-up Frank Sinatra mugshot hanging on the wall.
The photo was quickly screenshot and shared on Reddit, where fans ripped her apart for the decor.
“She oozes ‘not like other girls’ energy,” a fan wrote. “My kids dont have animals or word art in their playroom, they have edgy mugshots that I dont know the history behind.”
“Teddi tries so hard not to be boring that she just ends up being f****** weird,” another fan wrote.
“A mugshot in a kids room is a weird vibe no matter what the arrest was. End of,” someone else wrote.
“A criminal mug-shot? In a room for young kids? What on earth???!!!” someone else wrote.
“The fact that she likely paid someone to ‘design’ this playroom, only for it to turn out like this is SENDING me,” another commenter wrote.
Many commenters came to Teddi’s defense in the Reddit thread.
“Holy s***- imagine waking up and being this outraged over a photograph in someone else’s house…… mind blowing,” one wrote.
“Does everyone google everything they put in their house? Obviously teddi didn’t know this. She probably didn’t even decorate the room,” another said.
“What’s the big deal? Tony Soprano had this same pic up in the back of The Bada Bing. Or maybe Satriale’s,” another commenter said.
Another added, “So? It’s an extremely famous photo of Sinatra. You sound desperate to find ways to hate on Teddi. It’s kind of pathetic.”
Frank Sinatra Was Arrested ‘on Charges of Seduction & Adultery’ in 1938
According to History Daily, citing publicly available FBI reports, Frank Sinatra was arrested on a seduction charge in November 1938 after being accused of lying to a woman by promising to marry her in order to have sex with her. The report said Sinatra, “under the promise of marriage … did then and there have sexual intercourse with the said complainant, who was then and there a single female of good repute.”
Sinatra bonded out on $1,500, and the charges were eventually dropped when it was revealed the woman was already married, the outlet reported, adding that, after that marriage came to light, Sinatra was arrested again on an amended charge of adultery and bonded out on $500. He was never formally charged, and both cases were dismissed in January 1939. Overall, Sinatra spent a total of 16 hours in jail, the outlet reported.
The mugshot of a 23-year-old Sinatra became a pop phenomenon and can often be seen on T-shirts, mugs and in artwork.
