A Columbus, Ohio grandmother got visits from the local sheriff’s office and Child Services after she posted photos of her granddaughter in a roasting pan, surrounded by potatoes, according to WBNS.
Another picture showed the baby with her pacifier duct taped to her mouth. Some of her Facebook friends didn’t get the joke, and alerted authorities.
“We’re not horrible people that they are making us out to me”, Jackie Sheaks told the station. “It started as just a joke; we put a little tape on the pacifier because we were being silly. We wanted to share it with friends because everybody that knows us, knows we play around like that.”
As Gawker points out:
She’s learned her lesson, she says—not that there was anything wrong with the photos, but that other people are too uptight.
No charges were filed in the case and the child is still in her mom’s custody.
