Alaskan Bush People star Rain Brown is facing major backlash after she posted a slew of selfies as her mother, Ami Brown, is currently dying of stage-four cancer at UCLA Medical Center in LA. Since leaving Alaska for California, 14-year-old Rain has been constantly sharing selfies with uplifting messages, letting her followers know that she is doing her best to stay positive while her 54-year-old mom is on her death bed. After fans attacked her for posting, Rain wasted no time clapping back at her haters.

“Yep another selfie❤️ you gotta love yourself kids no matter who try's to push you down, you wouldn't believe the people I have had trying to make me mad and a bad person but I just throw love they're way along with a witty remark ?,” she wrote. “Anyway my point is always remember love is never wrong❤️??? just be and love yourself the rest will fall into place.”
In response to all the hate, many of Rain’s 15.9 thousand followers came to her defense. “Don’t let anyone tell you how you’re supposed to act! be yourself, love yourself, and keep on living! That’s what your mom wants,” one fan wrote, while another shared, “I am keeping you in my prayers, Rain. Your mom, too. If posting a beautiful pic of yourself helps you deal with the pain of a loved one dying, then so be it. Haters need to back off.”
As previously reported, Rain’s mom, Ami, was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. In recent interview, the reality TV matriarch opened up about why she is remaining optimistic even though she only has a three-percent chance of survival.
"I realized early into this that it’s very easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my last days," she said. "But I have the will to fight." She added, "Worrying about it only makes it worse. There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice. Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine.”
