‘Teen Mom’ Fans Criticize Farrah
While Sophia seemed content with her decision, “Teen Mom” fans didn’t hesitate to call out Farrah for allowing her daughter to get a septum piercing.
“Farrah will regret what she’s doing to her daughter, wow,” one Instagram user commented.
“A septum piercing at her age is too young,” another user commented.
“13?? And getting her septum pierced? Shocking parenting,” a third user wrote
Some fans liked the piercing and defended Farrah and Sophia in the comments.
“It’s a piercing 😂😂 she can take it out lmfao,” one fan wrote. “It teaches responsibility to take care of it well and not get an infection. Are any of you her mother? No? Alright”
“People need to chill its only a piercing easy to take out and this one you can flip up and easy to hide if you need to,” a fifth user commented.
Farrah Reacts to Backlash
Farrah defended her decision to allow Sophia to get a piercing in a March 2022 interview with TMZ.
She told the outlet she wasn’t too keen on Sophia’s decision but wanted to make sure her daughter got the piercing safely.
“I would rather-this might be the cool mom in me or just a loving parent, but I would rather it be by a professional, sanitized and clean, than my teen sneaking off doing it herself,” she said.
The “Teen Mom” alum acknowledged her haters directly, stating, “to those who might feel it is inappropriate that my daughter got her nose professionally done, legally done, I’m all about being legal. We abided by the law. I am doing my best as a parent to make sure that she is healthy and happy and I covered those bases.”
