Witney Carson is on the defense after a couple of social media users called her son’s behavior “horrific.”
The “Dancing With the Stars” pro took to her Instagram Stories on Sunday, April 24, 2022, and revealed that she let her “mama bear” come out when some drama popped up on social media, but she didn’t elaborate. On April 25, 2022, however, Carson opened up a bit about what was said that upset her — and shared her response.
“Okay, so. I’ve been debating whether or not to get on here and talk about my social post yesterday about being a mama bear and some things that went down on social media, but I feel like I need to address it,” Carson said.
“So, a few women decided to comment on a post and they described Leo’s behavior as ‘horrific,’ in their words, which really, really upset me. And I decided to comment back. And I usually don’t do this if it involves me; I really don’t care what people think of me,” Carson added. However, she said that if someone makes a comment about her son, “it’s a-whole-nother story.”

“Well @witneycarson the arranged marriage plans are off to a rough start but we’ll get there… Sage said, ‘sorry Leo my dada said no boyfriends,’” Arnold captioned the video.
“I’m dead,” Carson wrote in the comments. And while most people found the interaction between Leo and Sage absolutely adorable, a handful of others didn’t approve.
“There is a HUGE FKN problem with this. WHY would you EVER say that this little boy is Sage’s future boyfriend? WHY are you ASSUMING that your daughter is DEFINITELY going to be cis-het (cisgender heterosexual). NEVER EVER ASSUME ANYTHING. raise your kids with a VERY open mind about gender and …read more
