Parents are outraged after rapper T.I.'s 17-year-old son, King, shared a video featuring strippers at his birthday bash on his Instagram Story.

King is the son of rapper Tip "T.I." Harris, 40, and Xscape singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 45.

King, who has over 720K followers on Instagram, was featured on T.I. and Tiny's now-canceled reality TV series.

The aspiring rapper who goes by the stage name "Kid Saiyan" turned 17 on August 25. To celebrate, the youngster smoked marijuana while filming nude, gyrating strippers on his cell phone. The floor is littered with dollar bills.

The video is still live on Instagram despite the fact that he is underage and most of his followers are minors.

Parents complained that King exposed their children to adult situations by sharing the inappropriate video on his feed.

Parents say they have contacted child protective services to report the child smoking marijuana while nude strippers dance.

Many parents asked where are his parents, while others noted that King is his father's son.

Question: Would you allow your 17-year-old son to smoke weed and hire nude women to dance for him?

According to DailyMail.com, the couple was riding in a car with Deener's three children, ages 8, 7 and 5, from a previous relationship when the car was surrounded by sheriff's deputies.

The officers gave the couple a court order to hand over their then-10-day-old daughter, Asset Sba, for a checkup at a hospital.

The deputies said they were ordered by family court to take the newborn, TMZ reported.

In video footage, a tearful Mercado is seen slowly walking her newborn daughter over to DCF officials, pleading with them not to take her.

Mercado and Deneer's 15-month-old son, Amen'Ra, was taken away from the couple in March amid reports that the boy was severely malnourished.

Both children remain in "medical foster care" with an "estranged relative."

"We don't want to say where for their safety, but they are not with their parents. And not with the person they would choose," said Crump's co-counsel Louis Baptiste.

Mercado, 34, explained her anguish in a video press conference on Tuesday.

"I went somewhere to get assistance. My baby was supposed to come home with me. We should have nor been criminalize for getting assistance for something."

Deneer added:

"If this can happen to us, it can happen to you. We have no criminal background. We have no history with DCF. We have done nothing wrong."

Mercado said she and Deneer are "just missing out on so many precious moments" with their young children.

"I am a first-time mom and I've been deprived of holding my babies, and feeding my babies. I didn't get to see Ra say, 'Mama' for the first time. I didn't get to see my babies meet for the first time. I didn't get to see that and I can't go back and redo that moment, I will never be able to go back and redo that moment.

"If you are a parent, if you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, just know that we have agencies in place that have the ability to remove children without you breaking the law or abusing your niece, nephew, son."

Crump criticized the Manatee County Sheriff's Office for "dehumanizing" Mercado and Deneer.

The couple created a GoFundMe account that raised more than $420,000 of a $200,000 goal.

A boy who is seen being abused in a viral video on social media has been placed in the custody of the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS).

In the video, the boy is verbally and physically abused by family members, including his own mother, because he has feminine tendencies.

The video shows the word "gay" shaved into the side of the child's head.

Atlanta police said the video was shared thousands of times on social media before someone notified the authorities.

A number of Atlanta residents helped police locate the boy, named Tyler.

"The behavior in this social media post was difficult to watch and is absolutely unacceptable," a spokesperson for the Atlanta Police Department said.

A GoFundMe account was created by Hope Giselle, a local LGBT rights activist, and Devin Barrington-Ward, who is running for Atlanta City Council.

"Tyler is now free from the traumatic experience of dealing and engaging with his biological family and is in the hands of the Atlanta DFACS," a statement on the GFM page reads.

"We've all had the chance to witness the story of Tyler. A boy whose viral video of public humiliation based on his sexuality inflicted by his family has rocks both the LGBT and the black community via social media for the last two days. Community activist, celebrities, and organizers of all kinds have gathered together to ensure that Tyler is no longer is an occupant of the violent home featured in the video however, the story does not stop there."

Child protective services reportedly conducted a welfare check on Summer Walker's defenseless 4-month-old baby daughter, after her ex-boyfriend, London On Da Track, allegedly called them.

The music producer reportedly questioned Summer's childcare skills after the 25-year-old singer shared IG photos that showed her changing the baby girl's diaper in the blazing sun. Other photos showed her feeding the infant a smoothie containing raw honey, hemp seeds, and mushroom powder.

The photos of the severely undernourished baby alarmed her followers who tagged London in the comments section.

"Chile I'm praying for summer walker and her baby bc WTF is this sh-t?????" wrote one concerned IG user.

Another user wrote: "Someone needs to take that baby away from Summer Walker. She is literally starving that child and feeding it things that it cannot consume at their age... the baby’s legs are so skinny."

And a third wrote: "can someone tell summer walker to fed her kid properly!! a baby should not be skinny what is going on."

London, 30, who is best known for his collaborations with Young Thug, reportedly called CPS to check on his child.

Summer fired back on Instagram by challenging his manhood after he implied that she was ungrateful and that he was the source of her success.

Rapper Boosie Badazz is allegedly under investigation by child protection services after making the shocking claim that he paid a woman to perform oral sex on his sons and nephews, who were 12 and 13 at the time.

The Louisiana-based musician made the admission during a 57-second Instagram Live session on Wednesday, May 13.

In the video, the rapper, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., said:

"Hell yeah, I got my f**king son d**k sucked. I'm training them boys right. Ask any of my nephews, ask any of them, ask my son. Yeah, when they was 12, 13, they got (oral sex)... That's how it's supposed to be.

"Yes, a grown woman, grown, super grown, checked his a** out. Checked all my nephews out, super grown. Is she grown? She check me out. I know what the f**k she did to them, she checked me out, that b***h. I'm getting them prepared, man."

He added that he had "trained" his son, also named Torrence, to "f**k p***y" and "eat p***y all day everyday."

Although Boosie's admission sounds inappropriate to authorities, this coming-of-age ritual between father and son is actually common in the Black community.

Badazz's remarks come after he posted a birthday message to Torrence back in 2017 as he turned 14, with the caption reading in part that he "got a bag for you n a bad b**ch to give u some h**d."

Following the father-of-8's Instagram Live, users took to social media to slam the rapper for his actions, with some insisting they reported him to child services for the illegal act of soliciting sex workers for anyone under the age of 17.

"Boosie admitting to facilitating the molestation of preteens, by an adult woman, should be enough for his account to be deleted and banned at the very minimum," one person wrote. "Y'all can't tell me this homophobic a** man is not sick. Talking about training his sons to be sexually abused. This is rape culture," another commented.

Badazz has yet to respond to the backlash.

A mom who abandoned her 14-year-old special needs son at an Atlanta hospital may not face prison time.

Atlanta police charged Diana Elliot, 37, with child cruelty after she abandoned her special needs son outside Grady Memorial Hospital on the cold night of Dec. 4.

Security cameras captured Elliott escorting the smiling teenager into the lobby of the hospital and then leaving the scene in a red minivan.

The teenager, who is unable to communicate verbally, wandered outside looking for his mother after she left.

A kindhearted nurse on her lunch break noticed the boy standing outside the hospital. She escorted him back inside the hospital where he was cared for until police arrived.

"It was fortunate there was a nurse at Grady hospital, who was on her break, who went outside and happened to notice this young man outside," said police Lt. Jeff Baxter. "He needed help and shouldn't have been left like that," Baxter told Channel 2 News.

The teenager is now in the custody of the Georgia Division of Family and Child Services, according to Channel 2 News.

Elliott was tracked down by police and arrested on Wednesday. She was booked into the Fulton County Jail on felony child cruelty charges.

She told police she was overwhelmed caring for her son and her three other children.

Parents with special needs kids attended Elliott's bond hearing on Thursday. Her attorney - a parent to three special needs children himself - represented her pro bono (for free). The attorney believes the boy may have Down syndrome.

The judge said she would rather see Elliott get the childcare help she needs rather than send her to prison.

Georgia's "Safe Haven" law allows overwhelmed mothers to leave newborns at hospitals, fire stations, police stations and sheriff's offices without facing prosecution.

The law does not permit abandoning toddlers, adolescents or teenagers anywhere in Georgia.

Parents of unwanted adolescents or teenagers are urged to call DFACS, or give up their parental rights instead of abandoning their older children.

"It's rare that you see somebody older than a newborn being abandoned - it's very rare," Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos told WSB-TV.

"Our message is that we definitely understand that parents can feel overwhelmed by special needs children - that's something that everyone can empathize with," Campos said. "But leaving them unattended is not the proper solution. The child was found outside, cold and hungry, and that's just not an appropriate way to deal with something like this."
