But many online users were uneasy about what they witnessed.
“I wonder how many of his friends are allowed to stay with us. My son would not be allowed to have sleepovers at their house,” one person posted in the comments in response.
“I don’t think anyone has a problem with your son picking you up, just the fact that it seems like you’re riding your son.” You’re also dressed pretty sexy for a high school football game,” another wrote.
‘Ewww’, ‘What, I thought it was his girlfriend’ exclaimed another.
Her son, Brixton, decided to face the answers head on: “How are you going to leave my mother alone? » She never abused me, did anything sexual to me or my friends, or groomed me. She’s my mom, she’s my hero, the video of us hugging was a hug. Go bother someone else and maybe kiss your own children. You all need Jesus.

The mother of one tried to explain her reaction to her son’s victory
Her son, Brixton, 16, explained the reason for the apparent closeness with his mother, noting how he honored his father who committed suicide in 2021.
Brixton went further to explain that it was the first time his mother saw him wear a shirt with numbers printed on it to pay tribute to his father who committed suicide in 2021.
“My mother is my hero. I was just giving her a hug after the game and I picked her up, she didn’t jump on me. My mother has been the only person there for me my entire life,” Brixton wrote.
“I grew up with an alcoholic father who came and went whenever he wanted, he was great when he was sober, but he wasn’t, he was so dark and different. He never really showed up at any of my games or anything like that. My mothers have been there since I played there.
“My father committed suicide last year and this year I changed my number to 44 BC, that was the date of his death (4/4/21). It was the first time she saw me wear it in person, so obviously she was very emotional and so was I. It was all just a big hug from me to her.
