***WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO***
SAVANNAH, Ga – A video live-streamed on Facebook shows a Georgia woman beating and cursing at her teenage daughter for posting provocative pictures online.
The video shows the mother slapping and punching the 16-year-old and screaming at her for posting sexy photos of herself on Facebook and having sex in their home.
A later post that appears to be written by the mother says she loves her daughter but needed to teach her a lesson.
“I love my daughter with all my heart,” she says. “Whatever happens after this, oh well, my daughter is not going to disrespect me or herself for nobody … lesson learned.”
Savannah police say the daughter told them she feels safe in the home. They say she seemed to take responsibility in her own post saying that she shouldn’t have embarrassed her mother and that she shouldn’t have been doing what she was doing.
She says she loves her mother and she understands why her mom did what she did.
“I know next time to just keep my business to myself.”
Police haven’t said if the mother will be charged, but they did say they referred the case to the state’s child welfare department.
Child services officials haven’t returned a request for comment.
