There’s nothing like a relationship between mother and child, but this mother has people raising eyebrows for some of her parenting decisions. She first became notorious on the internet when she shared a questionable video where she was hugging her 16-year-old football player son post-game—with her legs wrapped around him. Now, she’s under fire for another reason.
Amber Wright posts a new photo, making fun of the video that made her famous
When Amber Wright, a single mom from Utah, wrapped herself in a somewhat sensuous position around her son’s torso, the internet freaked out. It now appears that Amber Wright is trying to take matters into her own hands, posting an image of her entwined with a guy who is most definitely not her teenage son, Brixton.
In the caption, she was wrong: “Oops… did it again”, in reference to the original infamous photo. In the recreated image, she’s rocking a sexy American football referee look, complete with alluring over-the-knee boots, while her partner is dressed as a football player.
Amber’s video hugging her son that went viral with 11 million views
A mom jumping into her son’s arms and wrapping her legs around his torso isn’t the most motherly way to embrace your child, but it’s what Amber Wright did after her son played a heated football game. Though she intended to catch an emotional moment with Brixton, her “baby boy,” and showcase her pride in him, the internet reacted differently.
The caption read, This boy will forever and always have my entire heart, Gina captured the end of this moment, and I’m SO grateful. When I walked up to hug my baby boy after his game, he immediately picked me up and just held me. It may have been 20 seconds, 30 seconds, or a minute, I have no idea. But in this moment, time stood completely still.”
Although some people were grossed out by the video and thought Amber was behaving inappropriately with her son, Brixton himself responded to the backlash by asking the public to leave his mom alone and saying that she never abused him or groomed him. Instead, he called her his hero and told followers to “go bother someone else and maybe hug your own kids.”
