UPDATE: The Clark County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio has launched an investigation over the photo.
UPDATE 2: The grandmother of the child from the father’s side, who was not involved, says that the child is safe and with her son.
A photograph of a man kneeling on the neck of a white baby while another person holds the diapered child’s arms is stirring up a massive amount of rage on social media.
The shocking and disturbing photograph, which was captioned by the abusers as “Blm now mf” is beginning to make the rounds after being uncovered by Vincent James of Red Elephants.
The paternal grandmother of the child wrote on Facebook that the photo was taken two days ago while the two-year-old was with his mother, who is dating Jackson. She told TGP that her son did not find out about it until yesterday morning.
The grandmother, who the Gateway Pundit has opted not to name for the child’s safety, provided us with screenshots of conversations in which the mother attempted to defend the photo when confronted about it, calling the person “ignorant” and claiming that “he wasn’t hurting him.” She also claimed she was not present when the photo was taken.
The very angry grandmother said that the baby is now with her son and safe.
“My son is beyond pissed. He took his boy to the ER to get checked out and everything came back good,” she wrote. “He better be glad nothing bad happened to my grandson and he better hide from all the people who will be coming for him when he gets out of jail.”
She told Gateway Pundit that the baby had x-rays taken and that there were no injuries. She said that she does not think the mother has been arrested or that any charges have been filed against her. “She should have been charged,” she said.
Child Protective Services is also involved, she explained, and the mother will only be allowed to see the child while the father is present for now. She is not allowed to be alone with him, the grandmother said.
