The Internet Clashes Over Viral Father’s Day Photo of Man & Daughter Wearing Pink Tutus
Two years ago, a Texas man named Casey Fields posted a photo online of him and his one-year-old daughter, Lyla, wearing matching pink tutus. The photo quickly went viral, as the self-described “Manly Man” was criticized by some and lauded by others for his manliness and dedication to his child.
Fast forward to the year 2022, where it appears as though an unidentified man has taken a page directly out of Fields’s playbook for raising a daughter. This past Father’s Day a woman named Kay Shenee posted a photo on Instagram of her one-year-old daughter and her baby’s father; they were sporting matching pink tutus. The photo was accompanied by an emotional caption dedicated to the father for displaying such unyielding loyalty to his child.
“One of the best feelings is watching my daughter fall in love with the man I fell in love with and the man I fell in love with love the child that we created out of love Happy 1st Father’s Day to my baby daddy.”
The image of the tattooed man, rocking a pink tutu without a shirt, alongside his daughter, made its way throughout social media cycles and eventually landed on the radar of some of the most popular accounts on Instagram such as SayCheeseTV and Akademiks, who promptly reposted the image on their pages. This garned some very interesting responses from their followers, some of whom fully supported the father for displaying his love for his daughter while others openly questioned his manhood.
“Wait till boosie see dis,” wrote one follower.
“Y’a’ll complaining about what he wearing but most of y’all don’t have a pops.” wrote another follower.
“N*ggas always tyrna gain attention. Just be a father bro without all the extra sh*t,” added another follower.
“Can’t hate on a man for being there for his kid,” wrote another follower, as the comments continued to pour in.
The exact indemnity of this man remains a mystery but what is very clear is his dedication to his kid.
At first, Casey was nervous, but quickly loosened up as the photoshoot went on
