A video posted on Instagram by 20-year-old Toronto model Tillie Medland has led to a heated debate on social media. In the video, which was posted last week, Medland can be seen laughing as her 2-year-old nephew, Jetson, reaches into her sports bra and touches her breasts.
Many believe the video, which now has over 178,00 views, is a display of perverted behavior, and some even accused Medland of promoting pedophilia.
"She is obviously aroused, damn pedophile," one user wrote.
"She should've stopped him from doing it the second time he tried to do rub her boob," another wrote.
"That's child endangerment for sexual abuse ... someone needs to report this," a user wrote.
However, many people have been defending her saying the child's behavior is totally natural, and that her response was heartwarming.
"Ignore the losers! The innocence of childhood is lost on them. There is no sexual thought in that child, it only exists in their own filthy minds," one user wrote.
"You people who say she's horrible for not stopping him need to get a life and go to therapy," another wrote.
"Wow! Some of you have no sense at all. For all we know, this kid could still be breastfeeding, recently weened or hell, maybe he even remembers being fed," read another comment.
Now that user is onto something! According to Dr. Laura Markham from , it's totally normal for toddlers to grab breasts, especially when they are being weaned off a bottle. "It is very common for toddlers to need to touch their mother's breasts for comfort or to fall asleep for as much as a year after weaning," she wrote to one user.
While of course Medland isn't the child's mother, chances are that wouldn't make a difference in his behavior. Or maybe he just did it for a reaction, which let's admit, is something toddler's are known for.
GoodHousekeeping.com has reached out to Medland but she has not yet response to a request for comment.
