A mum has been left outraged after her baby son’s photo was shared on a cruel ‘Ugly Babies’ Instagram page.
Courtney Tait, from Middlesbrough, posted a photo of herself, her boyfriend Scott, and their nine-month-old son, Hudson, onto a private social media account but somehow found that it had ended up on the trolling page.
The 21-year-old told Teesside Live: “It was heartbreaking, to be honest, the last thing I want is for my son to be called ugly.
“I know my child is gorgeous – it’s not about that.
“It’s more about who’s viewing my child, taking a photo of my nine-month-old and posting it for other weird people to see.”
However, Tait’s child is just one of many that feature on the account.
“My friend and her stillborn baby were posted on the page,” the mum revealed. “She had photos on her Facebook in a collage. They are using pictures that are on people’s private accounts, so they think it’s someone they know.
“They have been threatening one girl, messaging her from the Instagram page saying they will kill her mum.
“My friends have restricted their accounts now.”
Another furious mum has managed to track down the IP address of the account’s administrator and believes they are located in the North Yorkshire area.
They wrote: “Don’t know who’s sick enough to do this.
“They have tried to follow me three times, I have followed them to make sure my baby wasn’t on there.”
“We have managed to get an IP address. They are from Thornaby.”
An Instagram spokesperson has commented that the Community Guidelines clearly state that bullying and harassment are not tolerated and that these accounts are violating the policy.
They added: “This account was swiftly removed for breaking our rules on bullying and harassment.”
