Maluma Stirred Up A Massive Debate This Weekend After Posting This Photo On Mother’s Day Where He Plants A Huge Kiss On His Mom’s Lips

This weekend we saw everyone post sweet messages of love about their moms and everything they have done for them. With these sweet posts, there are obviously a lot of photos showing mom and her children all happy and proud of each other. However, there is one Mother’s Day post that everyone is talking about and it is Maluma’s. Here’s the war waging on social media about Maluma’s Mother’s Day post.

This is the Maluma post that has created a major debate on social media.

Maluma, like any good child, made sure to post something sweet about his mother for her special day. It is really sweet when you ready the caption. “Happy day love of my life. Happy Mother’s Day. ❤️” However, people are flipping out about the image.

People immediately had serious questions about why they were kissing like that.

Sure, it might look like a real shocking situation. However, everyone’s family is different and, for some, kissing on the lips is totally acceptable. It feels a lot like Tom Brady and how he kisses his son.

Some people first thought that the post was about his girlfriend.

Tbh, the kiss seems a little more aggressive than one you would give to your mom or dad. It does look like they might be dating rather than mother and son.

The issue seems to be with how open his mouth is.

Some people have a lot of time on their hands to really examine these photos. On a day that is supposed to be about our mother’s some people were out there sleuthing to figure out if Maluma and his mom were too close.

A few people wanted to make sure they weren’t being offensive with their critiques.

Cultural nuances are so easily lost in the age of social media and digital communication. Some things are just hard to understand if you have never been part of the other culture nor have a point of reference as to what is normal in that culture.

People who have a similar culture defended Maluma and his post.

There are so many ways to show love with your parents. This is a little too much for a lot of people but it also depends on what culture those seeing the photo grew up in.

There are some people who are really just over the over-sexualization of people.

Some people just relate on different levels. Some families have different levels and versions on intimacy. It is interesting that some people took a photo of a mom and son and turned it into something sexual.

Like, some people really made this a super creepy situation by wishing to be Maluma’s mom.

It is fine to feel how you want to feel about people. However, it is really questionable to put your sexual and romantic feelings on a photo of a son and mom.

Some people have been finding the humor in the whole conversation.

LOL. Could you imagine his aunt being jealous over the kiss? I mean, clearly, she is not out there being upset over the son-mother kiss. What do you think about the kiss between Maluma and his mom?

VIDEO: Father Begs Son To Forgive Him After They Were Separated At The Border While Seeking Asylum In The U.S.

While the nation celebrated Mother’s Day with Instagram and Facebook posts of their Mother’s Day brunches, a Tweet went viral showing how some moms spent May 10th: suffering and separated from their children.

A tweet went viral on Mother’s Day weekend that served as a reminder that mothers and children continue to be separated from one another.

Muslim activist @_SJPeace_ tweeted video of a little boy being reunited with his father last year when the “zero-tolerance” policy was in full swing.

The video centers around Franklin, an 8-year-old boy, from Guatemala that was taken from his parents, only to be reunited months later.

According to AZCentral, Franklin was taken from his mom and dad in March 2018. After a federal judge ordered the Trump Administration to end their policy, Franklin was reunited with his dad even though he was deported back to Guatemala. The pair were reunited months later and were taken back to their home country afterward.

They were one of the few to be reunited.

Thousands of families remain separated in part because the U.S. government failed to keep track of those who crossed the border.

Less than a month ago, another federal judge ordered the government to identify kids that were separated from their families. The Trump Administration has six months to get all of that information to the courts, but who knows if that will be possible since they have yet to reunite the families.

There’s no way of knowing how many kids were ultimately separated under last year’s policy.

Families Belong Together Chair Jess Morales Rocketto told Newsweek it’s impossible to know the exact number especially because the government has different ways of identifying units as families.

“The Trump administration characterizes family units as mothers, fathers, and children and you need to have a birth certificate to be recognized as a parent or guardian. So, that makes it really difficult to know,” Morales Rocketto said.
