Expressing her support for her daughter in the comments section, Farrah wrote: “SOPHIA THE FIRST 💜♓️ the first 13 year old in the family to have a septum piercing! Birthday wish come true! Happy memories! Loving You! Epic 13!”
Teen Mom fans slam Farrah
While Sophia seemed happy with her decision, Teen Mom fans didn’t hesitate to slam Farrah for allowing her daughter to get a septum piercing.
“Farrah will regret what she did to her daughter wow,” one Instagram user commented.
“A septum piercing at her age is too young,” commented another user.
“13?? And get her septum pierced? Shocking upbringing,” wrote a third user
Some fans liked the piercing and defended Farrah and Sophia in the comments.
“It’s a piercing 😂😂 she can take it out lmfao,” one fan wrote. “It teaches responsibility to take good care of it and not get an infection. Are any of you her mother? No? Alright”
“People need to relax, it’s just a piercing that’s easy to take out and this one can be flipped up and easily hidden when needed,” commented a fourth user.
Farrah responds to Backlash
Farrah defended her decision to allow Sophia to get pierced in a March 2022 interview TMZ.
“I’d rather — could it be the cool mom in me or just a loving parent, but I’d rather have it done by a pro, sanitized and cleaned, than my teen sneak off and do it himself,” she told TMZ.
The Teen Mom grad acknowledged her haters head on, explaining, “For those who may find it inappropriate that my daughter had her nose done professionally, done legally, all I care about is being legal. We obeyed the law. I’m doing my best as a parent to make sure she’s healthy and happy and I’ve got those bases covered.”
