PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. -- A South Florida woman said she discovered of a group of mothers on a social media platform allegedly bullying children.
"It's disgusting. It's horrible," said Melissa Antenucci.
Antenucci said a Facebook group selling gently used baby clothes had a cruel secret spinoff group. "And they decided to make fun of disabled and premature little girls," she said.
Antenucci is a new mom who discovered the group by accident. She says the group was copying pictures of other people's children and posting cruel criticisms.
Under a picture of a toddler, one mom wrote: "You can absolutely not fix ugly, this is a God given example of such."
A second mom wrote: "An ugly baby thread...I have died and gone to heaven...Why can't you guys live near me so we can do this over cocktails?"
"The things that these mothers said were the most horrific things that I have ever seen," said Antenucci, "being a mom and knowing that they are moms."
The Palm Beach County mother says other people were shocked to find their children were being made fun of.
A mom fired back with a picture of her premature daughter in the hospital next to how she looks now and wrote: "This is "my daughter" that is being made fun of, because she is delayed. So funny, huh? Sick..."
Antenucci said, "I mean, they used their own profiles. It wasn't like it was secretive at all."
Antenucci and another mom started copying and pasting the mean postings on their own walls and one of the mothers making fun of the children responded: "This is Facebook, not the Salem witch hunt. This is a free country and I was laughing, because it was funny. Thanks for your comments, next."
However, Antenucci said she and the other outraged mothers aren't moving on. "We have zero tolerance, you are bullying babies. You're not even bullying your peers, you're bullying babies! No!" she said.
Antenucci reported the incident to Facebook and were told the company is investigating.
