Can you believe that parents who entered their children in a Australian Beautiful Baby Contest have been discovered writing rude, racist and frankly cruel comments on other competitors' baby pictures in order to help their own children's chances?! Parents were found to be so desperate to win that they were willing to sink to the lowest levels by insulting the other competitors.
52,000 babies were entered into the competition sponsored by Bonds, an Australian clothing company. Numerous parents have withdrawn their children from the competition. One mother was so outraged and insulted she has reported the insulting postings to the police!
The people who posted the comments show tendencies towards being the ultimate pushy parent willing to do anything at all to help their child win even it it means being underhand. One post read: "This is a child only a mother could love!", another said the child was "An ugly duckling!". Not what you would expect!
The organisers have issued warnings saying that any rudeness will not be tolerated from now.
Over half a million people have now been to the website to see the pictures and comments.
