“Black Ink Crew Chicago” star Charmaine is settling into motherhood with her husband Neek. She’s been sharing a lot with her supporters on social media. And it’s clear that she’s enjoying her new life. She’s been bonding with her daughter during the pandemic. However, she had some controversy on social media recently.

It started after she decided to participate in a certain challenge on TikTok.

The challenge involved her daughter Nola. And a lot of folks weren’t here for it. So they called Charmaine out for her actions. However, Charmaine felt the outrage was unnecessary. So she clapped back.

            Did you not see the baby’s reaction of the being caught off guard? The second and third splashes literally hit the baby in the face(newborn baby) your just as bad with thinking she doesn’t deserve all the sh-t she’s catching. Yeah she does deserve to be in trouble over endangering her kid over a dumb a-s tik tok challenge

      • Meg

        June 11, 2020 at 3:19 pm

        People did try to reach out to Charmaine respectfully and she wasn’t trying to hear it.

        • Sherita Davis

          June 11, 2020 at 6:13 pm

          That’s not true she was basically explaining to them that her daughter is fine just fyi

          • Meg

            June 11, 2020 at 6:19 pm

            No, I told the truth. Charmaine was not trying to hear what anyone was saying. Neither was Neek. This is why she called concerned people stuck up in this screenshot and she turned around and posted a video of other people doing the same challenge.

      Why all the outrage for a controlled bottle of water when you hv mfs throwing babies in pools of water. Where is the backlash for that…🤔🤔. I DIGRESS. Y’all be sensitive about the WRONG SH-T

      • Lily

        June 12, 2020 at 7:10 am

        I think caring about a baby’s life is being sensitive about the RIGHT SH-T. Charmaine needs to get it together.

    It doesn’t look like her daughter enjoyed any of that.

    Charmaine and your a-s is mad stupid you forgot that’s a baby take that s*** down🤬

  9. Why

    June 11, 2020 at 3:37 pm

    This wasn’t funny to me. I get that we’re living in a society that thinks social media popularity is important but it’s getting really corny now how much attention everyone needs. Everyone is doing too much. And it’s not necessary. I’m sure this will be her storyline on the show though.

  10. Tasha

    June 11, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    People really be disrespecting their kids for some d-mn likes.

    Charmaine I Love your sense of humor. Being a new mom You have to laugh to keep from crying. Keep doing what you doing.

    June 11, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    There are people who can’t have kids and this is what she’s doing with her free time. This country is a mess. And no, this wasn’t funny.

    What some of you need to understand is that there could repercussion that can come from startling a baby so young!
    This can actually create some unnecessary fear on poor beautiful Nola!
    That was immature as fu***k
    Let somebody do that to Charmaine when she’s sleeping!!

    Girl now if the baby got choked then what. Grow up you are a mother now, and better hope CPS doesn’t knock at your door. SMH not funny at all.

      she has shown on the show how immature she is. So unique don’t know he married a dum dum child and had a baby by her so he need to keep his eyes on that little that little white baby because if not is going to she’s going to be hurt. Because John main is not a good mother she’s not going to be a good mother because she don’t know how to act she’s very immature. I feel for you and I feel for that baby

    June 11, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    I didn’t find this funny at all that’s a baby it’d be different if it was a for five-year-old maybe but that’s still a baby she startled baby and it wasn’t cute at all if you’re going to do water for a challenge what else are you going to do if another challenge comes out for kid just makes you go h m m m

    Man this is why it’s hard for people to have fun and to enjoy life cuz they’re so stuck on trying to hurt and harm people. If you’re a you know good and well this baby is okay the water did not go up the baby’s nose. And the fact that you were mentioned CPS is a so ignorant. The splash of the water may have harmed a baby but that baby is well capable a breathing and maintains after that grow up. Just goes to show how truly immature even the grown is person is to comment and degrade someone for having fun Charmaine live your life enjoy your baby and do your due diligence in homework so when CPS come knocking at your door since people want to involve them and everything you can correct their a-s as well have a blessed day and enjoy your baby next time just get a spray bottle to shut the world up but what God gave you can’t nobody take away that’s your blessing enjoy it🌟👑🙏🖤👼😊

      The water could have gone up the baby’s nose though. You don’t risk your baby’s well being and comfort for TikTok views and IG likes. That poor baby looked scared and agitated. All for what? Social media engagement?

    The reason babies need to cry when they’re first born is to close the little flap that allows them to be able to breathe in the amniotic fluid and once that’s close there’s No going back .. So whoever commented that on the original post is dumb as h-ll..
    &As far as Miss Charmaine she might want to take some parenting classes cuz that ain’t some sh-t you do on a newborn

  23. Adrian Pugh

    She always would do anything for attention. Like twerking on stage without panties .I honestly don’t see what her husband sees in her no class whatsoever so having a baby would change that Not!!!

    We all know Chrmaine is an overgrown immature clown now we see that she’s a child abuser.

    We all know that Charmaine is an overgrown immature clown and now we see that she’s an immature mother and possible child abuser.

    Sooo. No one comes with instructions on how to be a parent. We learn from our parents. My question is how is the baby hurt from water in a bottle while she is holding it. When she takes the child a bath water can splash like that and when you wash the baby’s hair it may go to the front of her face and not the back. It would get the same response. I just think y’all dislike for this lady brings about judgement. Yes she posting cuz she thought it was cute and funny but we all dont share the same veiws at all. Then y’all calling her a poor excuse like she done let the baby in the tub or car. It’s other issues more serious. And I worked for CPS and wouldn’t take a child for this. Y’all calm down.

  27. I Guess

    June 12, 2020 at 11:39 am

    I like Charmaine but I’m not about to sit here and act like I don’t see an issue with this. I think Americans as a whole have gotten ridiculous with this social media stuff. Everyone wants to be seen and everyone wants likes so a lot of us are doing the most to get those things. Nola looked very afraid and agitated. So for that alone, Charmaine is wrong and she needs to look deep within herself to figure out why she’s so needy for social media attention that she would agitate and scare her own baby for social media engagement. It shouldn’t be that serious but here we are in a time where just about everyone will do whatever it takes for social media attention. She’s better than this. With that being said, other people are doing way too much as well. Charmaine isn’t a bad mother for this. She just has some growing up to do.

    Fact still stands that you can throw a baby in a pool of water and they will swim back to the top because they have been in fluids for 9 months of their life. My cousin was thrown into a pool months old. She swam back to the top and has been swimming ever since. That baby was not in any danger from a d-mn water bottle. Mfs always hollering about CPS this and CPS that. Know the actual rules, regulations and laws when it comes to CPS. MFS just want to say something. Majority of the mfs that comment don’t have children and wouldn’t know where to fckn start when it comes to one. CPS will knock on your door about pulling on your baby are before they come for this….

      Nobody says not to have fun sis! But, everyone knows that not all games and jokes are appropriate for all ages! My honest opinion is not about judging is about guiding a new mom!
      As we know motherhood does come with a manual, we learn as we go. So, for you to sit there and call people ignorant because we’re commenting on something Charmaine herself posted publically is a poor judgment from your part!
      Remember that it takes a village to raise a child and we all gonna have different ways of parenting.
      I’m sure Charmaine did not have bad intentions, but, it was not a good joke!… As we could see in the background Neek didn’t think it was funny either!
      Just because we like Charmaine we don’t have to agree with everything she does.
      This are constructive criticism and we hope that CHARMAINE sees them that way!!!

        First off who said that I was talking to the people on this thread honey. I was not. I simply stated my thought and was referring to those who replied on her social media after viewing the video just like everyone else. Half of them always have something to say and have not one child. Majority are young asf and have nothing better to do. I hate when people just throw around CPS when they have no clue how it works when it comes to CPS. No Parenting does NOT come with a manual, but no harm was brought on her child. A lot of people had something to say simply because she’s a celebrity. I’ve seen countless videos the same with babies but no one says anything just laugh. So I guess because they aren’t famous their child’s life doesn’t matter.

    I think it was really stupid and she mlm looked stupid doing it!! I dont think she was hurting the baby but it looked really childish on her part just for likes. Definitely not worth all the backlash.
