“Teen Mom” fans were shocked when they saw how Farrah Abraham spoke to her daughter, Sophia, in a resurfaced clip. The video, which originally aired on MTV, was posted March 5 on the “Teen Mom” subreddit.
“When your daughter has better insight into your personality than you do… ‘Mommy’s never rude… lets not waste my time… your being whiny,'” the original poster captioned the scene.
The scene starts with Abraham asking her daughter — who appears to be 5 or 6 — for feedback about her parenting.
“Sophia, what do you think Mommy can do better as a parent? I love feedback. I really need it today,” Abraham, now 30, asked her daughter, now 13.
“Well, you have changed a lot from being nice to rude,” Sophia answered.
“No, I’m being nice, so don’t waste my time. Mommy’s never rude. I think you’ve just been a little whiny,” Abraham snapped back.
“It’s because you make me whiny,” Sophia clapped back.
Fans Said the Scene Was ‘Heartbreaking’
Viewers felt sorry for Sophia after watching the resurfaced clip.
“It’s so heartbreaking to watch Farrah’s generational trauma get passed down onto this poor little girl. I always wonder if her dad was alive if she would have had a better chance,” one person said.
Some social media users claimed Abraham was gaslighting her young daughter.
“Farrah asking Sophia for feedback then gaslighting Sophia for said feedback and invalidating her feelings. i feel bad for poor Sophia,” they wrote.
Others wondered whether Abraham had staged the discussion and was taken aback when Sophia gave an unexpected response.
“Honestly, I feel like Farrah rehearsed this interaction beforehand and wanted Sophia to be like ‘you don’t need to do anything better, you’re the best mommy in the world’ and when she didn’t Farrah got shit faced and had to hide her anger,” they wrote.
Abraham Checked into Rehab
Abraham checked into a Texas treatment center on March 2.
“There’s really no easy way of saying this. I am headed to a trauma treatment center for 28 days. I just wanted to share and be open,” she said on TikTok.
“I’m sending love and light to those who want to improve their lives, and I hope you can look into a treatment trauma center near you and get the help and support you deserve.”
“Yes, I am going to go take care of my mental health in trauma treatment, and I look forward to sharing that journey with others and I hope that,” she said. “There’s less taboo about taking care of your mental health when we’re experiencing a lot of traumas and difficulties in our world right now.”
Abraham was arrested January 16 outside Grandmaster Recorders in Hollywood. She was accused of hitting a security guard, though Abraham has since claimed she was the one who was attacked. She was charged with misdemeanor assault and is due in court on May 19.
“I’ve had a very traumatizing year and I don’t deserve to be attacked, bruised, men on me, and battered. As a single mother to be harassed, battered, and conspired against as a paying customer @grandmaster_recorders should fire their management and security for all contributing to attacking 1 person out of 3 people,” Abraham wrote in a January 16 Instagram post.
