Reality stars are used to dealing with hate, but Bear Brown is drawing the line when it comes to his baby. After discovering internet trolls have been making fun of the sonogram photo that he and ex-girlfriend Raiven Adam posted on Instagram, the father is speaking out. On Friday, November 1, the star shared a message calling out all of the haters.
“Hey, everybody, something’s been bugging me!” Bear, 32, wrote on Instagram. “It’s sad that in this modern day and age there is so much hate! I’ve heard that some page is making fun of my kid’s sonogram picture! I’m surprised that Facebook and people would allow such a heinous act to go on! Anyone who would make fun of an unborn baby borderlines evil! How is that allowed? The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing! Make fun of me all you want! But leave innocent babies out of it!!!”
The post came just a few days after the newly-single parents-to-be revealed their due date: April 19, 2020. On October 29, the Alaskan Bush People star revealed that his ex is 15 weeks along. “I can’t wait to hold this little one in my arms!” he wrote. In her own post, Raiven, 21, added, “We are officially 15 weeks and two days! Our baby is already stubborn. 😂 Crossed legs and the umbilical cord made it impossible for us to find out if it’s a boy or girl. But the heartbeat was 168. This little one looked like he or she was sucking [their] thumb and waving at us!”
Though most fans gushed over the sonogram, sharing love for the future Alaskan bush baby, not everyone was so kind. The hate seemed to mirror criticism that the baby’s mom has faced, too. On her own Instagram account, Raiven has been open about how overwhelming she finds the constant criticism from fans — and it’s chased her off the social media platform more than once.
“I think this life is too much for me. The drama, the articles, the harassment. The mean people who have nothing better to do,” the model confessed in September. A few days later, she had more to say before deleting her account entirely. “I’m always quick to want to prove haters wrong so they don’t get the satisfaction of winning when they are wrong,” she wrote. “But I’m realizing responding at all is letting you win because you are getting the attention you clearly need.”
