Ice-T defends 5-year-old daughter’s French tip nails
Blocking out the haters.
Ice-T supports his wife Coco Austin’s decision to let their 5-year-old daughter Chanel wear French tip nails, saying that he just tunes out the naysayers online.
“Rule 1 on the internet: Do not pay attention to what anyone says,” the “Law and Order: SVU” star, 63, said on Thursday’s episode of “The View.” “Worry about the people that walk up to you and say things in your real life.”
“Those are the people you should be concerned with. The internet is the world. It’s the world talking, so I don’t pay attention.”
The rapper said he recognizes, though, that “everybody parents differently.”
“Like I said, every house has its own Constitution,” he added. “We’re doing OK. Our baby’s OK.”
Host Whooping Goldberg then passionately chimed in, “Mind yo business!”
“I always love when people say, ‘They say.’ Who’s they?” Ice-T asked. “The internet? I don’t pay attention to that.”
Earlier this week, some moms on social media had a frenzy over Chanel’s nails, showcased in an adorable picture from her first day of school.
“To [sic] young for nails!!!!! one person commented.
Another, pointing out how Chanel still breastfeeds, commented, “Tips for a 5 year old, but you still breastfeed her, come on … .just ridiculous.”
However, there were other people on social media that came to Austin’s defense.
“Her lil picture day nails cute,” one person said. “Regardless of what these ppl say. Folks love parenting other ppl kids.”
Another fan added, “Y’all are so judgmental! Worry about your own children and lives. This little girl is well taken care of, loved and blessed. Y’all go somewhere with all that negativity.”
