Drama alert! Alaskan Bush People star Rain Brown took to Instagram to wish her parents a Happy Birthday, but despite the sweet message, fans can’t get over the fact that she chose to post a photo of herself for the tribute. Watch the video below to see the pic — and to read what people had to say!
The 15-year-old is no stranger to Internet trolls and recently received backlash for posting selfies while her mother, Ami Brown, battles Stage IV lung cancer. 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.”
As previously reported, Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. In an interview with People in August, 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.” According to Rainy, her mom is nearing the end of her second round of chemo, so here’s to hoping she’s finally on the road to recovery!
