In a new viral video, a babysitter records as she slaps a young kid for dancing along to a TikTok viral challenge and acting “gay.” The incident was posted online, where it not only caught the attention of thousands, but the boy’s family, who had no idea the incident happened.
The video features the boy, identified by his family as Brandon, dancing with another girl to the viral “Savage” dance challenge. In this TikTok challenge people dance to Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Savage.” As Brandon dances, babysitter reaches out and smacks him in the face and says, “You don’t do that sh–. F–k wrong whichu? Gay a– b–ch.”
Brandon stops dancing to hold his face and retreat.
The video was posted on Twitter, captioned with “I’m crying.”

When the post got to Brandon’s godmother, she told his mother and responded. She wrote, “My godson comes from a loving home & whether he’s gay or not we love him regardless.”
“We always let him be himself. His mom thought she could trust this person to watch them for 10mins & this happened,” she said in an attempt to clarify that the person in the video wasn’t Brandon’s mother.
The boy’s family notified the police and have released another video to discuss the incident.
“Everybody thinks it’s me and everybody was saying all these negative things about me. You know, I’m not worried about none of that. My son is fine, I know he’s good over here. I know he’s being loved right,” his mom says in the video. She also identifies the babysitter as her sister.
While the mother says the police are “handling it,” she also hopes that this will end the situation and that her kids won’t be taken away. It’s said that she wasn’t in the house when the incident occurred.
