Moms On TikTok Are Removing Photos Of Their Kids After Spotting Worrying Trend

“Think twice. Trust your gut. Understand there’s bad people out there.”

Several mothers on TikTok are removing photos of their children/toddlers, fearing they might be saved by potential pedophiles online. This action emerged after mothers spotted a worrying trend with one of TikTok’s most popular girls, Wren Eleanor, aged 3. 

The site allows users to save content they like to their accounts, so moms warn the feature is being used as a catalog for pedophiles.

Jacquelyn has since Eleanor was born, been sharing photos of videos of her on the social media site. The account has hundreds of seemingly innocent videos of the blonde toddler playing and enjoying days out with her mom and grandma, along with sponsored content. It’s been going well until Jacquelyn started receiving an onslaught of abuse.

Online sleuths pointed out that videos of Eleanor playing in the bath and holding tampons were being saved by hundreds of thousands of people.

Instantly, Jacquelyn deleted videos from the account, especially those that received the most backlash. Fellow moms are accusing her of knowingly exposing her daughter to pedophiles and predators while claiming that Jacquelyn is also ignoring concerns because she receives payment for advertisements with her daughter from brands like Shein and Khol’s.

Predators can also use the smartphone’s screen recording feature to record or screenshot content directly to their phones without being accounted for.

TikToker Kelso, @allthings.kelso, explained she first spotted a problem after Eleanor played with a tampon posed inappropriately. “Obviously, there are creeps everywhere, and they’re a lot of things you cannot control when it comes to protecting children. But you can control the content you post of your children on social media.”

Another, Danielle Tilley, said in her video: “It’s the creeps’ fault, and I agree, but the fact of the matter is they are out there, and they are not leaving anytime soon. And it is your job as a parent to protect your child.” Others expressed concerns about the toddler’s safety, saying some people would abduct the child for s*x trafficking.

Someone else pointed out a video of Eleanor wearing a cropped, orange shirt that was saved over 45K times. They also alleged a video of the toddler eating a hotdog was saved over 350K times. 

Popular searches for Eleanor’s videos include phrases like Wren Eleanor hot dog or pickle, meaning users had been searching for the three-year-old eating those foods. However, Makayla Musick told Fox News Digital that her duty as a mom is to protect her daughter from things like this and that she has taken the initiative to remove her photos before anything like Eleanor’s situation could happen to her daughter.

Accordingly, Calahan Walsh told the news outlet that people who use social media platforms can be ‘drawn into a false sense of security.’

The executive director of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) explained it’s because of the positive interactions they have with friends, family, and strangers who follow their accounts with good intentions. He believes parents need to be aware of what predators are looking for and urge“Think twice. Trust your gut. Understand there are bad people out there. Try to keep your kids safe.”
