88

A YouTuber deleted her channel after accidentally posting an outtake where she coached her nine-year-old crying son on how to pose for a video thumbnail.

Jordan Cheyenne, 30, from California, describes herself as a “beauty and lifestyle content creator” and has been posting vlogs since 2013, often about raising her son Christian as a single mother.

In the insulting video, titled “We’re Heartbroken,” and uploaded Wednesday, Cheyenne told viewers that her family’s new puppy had been diagnosed with parvovirus, a condition that can kill unvaccinated dogs.

At the end of the video, presumably in a section she planned to cut, she can see her son posing for the camera while crying.

“Pretend you’re crying,” she says to Christian after pressing him to her chest.

‘I cry!’ he said repeatedly. “I’m actually very sad.”

In the insulting video, titled “We’re Heartbroken,” and uploaded Wednesday, Cheyenne told viewers her family’s new puppy had been diagnosed with parvovirus, a condition that can kill unvaccinated dogs.

Because of the increased backlash, Cheyenne, who labels herself on her website, which is still live, as an “Instagram growth coach,” said she would stop including her son in her YouTube videos.

But the criticism continued, and on Monday she said in a statement to Insider that she was shutting down her channel to focus on Christian’s “health and well-being.”

“Going completely offline, canceling all videos and monetizing, and prioritizing my child, that’s all I care about,” she said in the statement.

“I am disgusted and shocked at what I have done and there is absolutely no excuse. It’s terrible on so many levels. I love my child more than anything and will forever regret this moment.”

The video was quickly removed, but not before it was re-uploaded on numerous social media platforms. That same day, Cheyenne posted a sequel titled “I’m Extremely Disappointed in Myself,” in an attempt to explain and apologize for her behavior.

“I am disgusted and shocked at what I have done and there is absolutely no excuse. It’s terrible on so many levels. I love my kid more than anything and will forever regret this moment,” Cheyenne said in a YouTube apology posted shortly after the offending video was removed.

“I was so emotionally drained by the end of the video… I had Christian on my shoulder and I was like, ‘Come pose with me for the thumbnail’ after the video… I shouldn’t have done that,” she said.

“I wish I could show us at the vet how we cry and are so emotional with everything that has happened. But if I did, you know what people will say? “Why are you filming your son crying? Why are you filming the emotional moment?”

She said in the video that she had received a barrage of “hateful, violent, abusive” messages on Instagram.

“Trying to get that thumbnail was just so wrong and such poor judgment on my part, but that doesn’t condone bullying and harassment,” she said.

In a later video, she promised not to include Christian in her videos, saying she was in the process of removing previous videos that featured him.

“I made the decision that is 100 percent healthiest for my child and his mental health to be off camera,” she said.

According to the social analytics tool Social Blade, Cheyenne’s channel has bled 2,000 subscribers between Wednesday and Friday.

On social media, users denounced Cheyenne’s behavior and questioned the morality of parenting vlogs as a whole.

“Jordan Cheyenne’s video is so disturbing and difficult to watch,” wrote @Andrea Russett. “Social media can be so dark.”

“The situation in Jordan Cheyenne is disgusting but all I can think of is that this is just one time a family channel has slipped and showed us what they are doing to their children behind the scenes,” said @baechamel.

“Thank you for showing what you and other family vloggers do to their children, probably on a daily basis.  As we knew but it's great to have video proof of why your channels should all be checked and just shut down,

“I shudder at the thought of what else is happening (not just to this particular channel, but to all of them).”

Cheyenne is the latest YouTuber educator to be accused of lacking, if not downright abusive, parenting.

In 2020, 8 Passengers’ Ruby and Kevin Franke were charged with child abuse after their 15-year-old son said on camera that he had been forced to sleep on a beanbag for months as punishment for making fun of his brother.

Last December, YouTubers ‘Ryan and Danielle’ were scolded on social media for a ‘creepy’ video prank in which their seven-year-old daughter complains of cramps to her father, Ryan, telling him she’s had her first period.

Perhaps most famously, Maryland YouTuber parents Mike and Heather Martin lost custody of two of their children in 2017 due to cruel “jokes” played on their channel, DaddyoFive, including telling a child he had been adopted, smashing his Xbox with a hammer and pretending to stay home while the rest of his family went to Disney World.
