Ice-T is one proud papa and he's not going to let anyone bring him down. The "6 'N The Mornin'" rapper and wife Coco Austin have shared several photos of their daughter, Chanel Nicole, since her birth, even creating social media accounts specifically for her. Now the pair are being accused of exploiting their daughter and Ice-T, 57, isn't happy about it.
Just days after welcoming his youngest child into the world Ice-T was forced to take to Twitter to shut down the haters on Monday. He addressed anyone commenting on the amount of photos he and Austin, 36, have shared of their daughter, calling it exploitation. The rapper-turned-actor mocked the allegations, asking his 589,000 Twitter followers if sharing baby photos was comparable to exploiting his child adding, "You gotta be kidding me." Ice-T ended his Twitter rant by simply stating, "people ain't got s--- to talk about."
Although this is the first time Ice-T has addressed the situation, Austin first spoke on it on Saturday. Daily Mail reports that after sharing a photo of Chanel on Facebook one follower advised Coco not to "exploit your newborn beautiful lil angel." The model responded, writing that she was simply "proud that I'm finally a mama."
Chanel was born Nov. 28. She is the first child for Austin and Ice-T, though the rapper also has two children of his own from a previous relationship. Within hours of her birth the tiny tot had an Instagram and Twitter account of her own.
The couple announced that they were expecting in July during an episode of their daytime TV show "Ice & Coco." At the time, Austin was more than five months along.
