Farrah Abraham Slammed For Posting Birthday Wishes For Dad (PHOTOS)
Dare we say it — but is Farrah Abraham actually getting along with her parents?!
Just days after announcing on Instagram that she and her mom, Debra Danielsen, have officially started their own specialty food business called Mom & Me, the controversial Teen Mom OG star is now bringing the focus to her dad as he rings in his 59th birthday.
Farrah posted photos and videos on social media from his surprise birthday party on February 9.
“Surprise!!!!!!! Happy Birthday To The One The only Dad of mine #surpriseparty #59 #HappyBirthday,” Farrah captioned the video of his reaction and a cute picture of the father/daughter duo with some birthday balloons.
Seems innocent enough, right? But almost immediately after Sophia’s mama posted the birthday wishes, fans were not impressed.
“How about giving him the gift of respect and call him dad. You are not his equal. Nice fake happy bday from you,” one follower wrote.
“Now she calls him dad...always callin’ him Michael...weak ass parents, I would smack ur disrespectful ass,” another wrote.
Viewers seem to be bothered by the fact she is suddenly referring to him as “dad,” when on the show (and since the days of 16 & Pregnant), she has almost always called her father by his first name, Michael.
The 24-year-old has also been fighting with her pops on recent episodes, which is also maybe why people think her birthday wishes are insincere — though let’s be honest, their relationship is a lot better than Farrah’s is with her mom (and Michael’s ex-wife), Debra.
But maybe distance made the heart grow fonder? As we learned on the February 8 episode of TMOG, Farrah is readying herself and Sophia to move to Los Angeles, which will take her farther away from her dad in Texas.
Perhaps a little time away from each other has been helping their relationship move forward. Either way, Happy Birthday, Michael/Dad/Whatever!
