OUTRAGEOUS: Mother dresses 4-year-old daughter in HOOTERS outfit for beauty pageant & teaches her sexual dance moves
Beauty pageants for babies is hideous enough without mothers over-sexualizing their toddlers. Recently, a mother has come under fire for dressing her four-year-old daughter in a Hooters waitress outfit for a beauty pageant and teaching her a proper pelvic thrust.
Mother Liane, 33, from Portsmouth, created the controversial costume for Scarlett who featured in the Channel 5 documentary Blinging Up Baby. Hooters is a chain of restaurants with waiting staff who are mainly young women in tight white tops usually referred to as Hooter Girls. She even taught her a dance routine which included the splits and pelvic thrusts. However, the costume and routine have been deemed ‘inappropriate’ by viewers.
Unemployed single mum Liane has ploughed everything into entering six-year old Bessie-Sue and four-year-old Scarlett into glitzy U.S.-style beauty pageants. She said: ‘They are very talented little girls but then I have invested a lot in them. I am ambitious for them and I do push them.’
To compete in the Teeny Miss Beauty competition, Liane decides to dress Scarlet in a Hooters waitress outfit. However, not all mothers at the competition agreed with the choice. One parent said: ‘I think Hooters is a bit inappropriate for a small child’ while another thought it was ‘fabulous’.
However, viewers took to Twitter to vent their disgust.
One said: ‘Who the hell puts their child in a Hooters outfit and teaches them pelvic thrusting moves? How disgusting!’
This culture of teaching toddlers how to be sexy at 2 and 3 yr-olds is like a candy factory for pedophiles. I’m all for parents having the authority to set their kids on the life course they choose but creating fodder for child molesters is pretty despicable and irresponsible.
