A Milwaukee mom was furious by her 12-year-old daughter's Facebook page. She publicly shamed her daughter in an online video and sent a warning to all of her Facebook friends.
In the video mom has her daughter repeating after her.
"Tell them that you can't be on Facebook," said mom, Lorraine Walls.
"I can't be on Facebook," said daughter, Lutisha.
"I can't have
a boyfriend," said Walls.
"I can't have a boyfriend," repeated Lutisha.
"I'm reading my bible, get your bible,
show them that you're reading your bible," ordered Walls.
"She had got caught sneaking a page on Facebook twice," said Walls.
One that quickly spiraled out of control for 12-year-old Lutisha.
"Now don't get slapped because you're already in hot water," said Walls in the video.
"She had already snuck back on Facebook, talking to some young guy, and plotting a fight with her friend," said Walls.
That fight wound up getting Lutisha suspended.
When her mom found out that this all began online, she decided to take action, online.
"If you can get a child and expose that child to help that child, not to hurt 'em, I'm not out to hurt Lutisha. I want her to live, I want her to be somebody," said Walls.
"Now tell Shyann that you're sorry," mom said in the online video.
The video took a life of it's own on the web, garnering more than half-a-million views.
Thousands praising the mom for her discipline tactics.
Others taken aback by moments like this.
"The next time that she's on Facebook and I catch her on Facebook. I'm beating the hell out of her," said Walls.
"Well this mother is on Facebook talking to her child like this. But you never said anything about my child on Facebook under the wrong name, you never said anything about my child on Facebook being a bully, you never said anything about that," explained Walls.
Walls also saying she doesn't hit her daughter.
"She doesn't get whoopins, she's not getting beat, she doesn't get abused," said Walls.
Regardless of the criticism, walls says she's not letting up on her pre-teen -- calling it tough love for a cruel world.
"We have to save our youth. We got too many laying out there dead because of gun shot wounds, we got too many that's coming up pregnant," said mom.
