He explained that he didn’t mean any harm when he was posting the photos on the internet, and just wanted his daughter to become a model because she is too young to be a comedian.

His words,

“I did not mean to harm anybody. I have been so used to watching content creators, comedy and others. I felt she is too small and cannot be doing comedy. I started to bring her up in the model way by wearing model dresses like ‘catapult pant’ to cover herself and make her as a model. This month, May 28 is her birthday. I went to do her birthday bash. I posted it on her page and it went viral.”

When asked if his action was right, the father responded, “I wanted her to become a celebrity.”
