Bringing Up Bates star Lawson Bates recently took a selfie that offended many viewers to the point where they may now refuse to watch the show. Then, his mom had something to say that may surprise fans of the UPtv reality series.
Bringing Up Bates Update: Lawson Bates’ Pic Blows Up
Recently, Bringing Up Bates celeb Lawson Bates shared a photo from his time visiting a ranch in Montana. In it, Lawson is holding up what seems to be a coyote that he had killed. In the caption, he states that is a “varmint” that would’ve killed a good deal of livestock. Also, he made sure to say that he does not hunt for sport.
Of course, the comments came flooding in. One person with ranch experience says coyotes are extremely dangerous and could kill about half of a rancher’s cattle. So, some think it’s necessary where others disagree. But, what seems to bother them most of all is that he could’ve chosen not to post it on social media. And, some Bringing Up Bates followers are not pleased with his comments.
Bringing Up Bates Fans Put Off by Actions – May Stop Watching
Lawson from Bringing Up Bates was mostly polite in his responses to the photo he put up. However, some thought he came off a bit snarky. Of course, Lawson Bates always seems to come off as a kind and caring person and he is always respectful. No doubt, that’s why so many people love him.
But, in one of his responses, he commented on someone’s grammar and that didn’t sit well with others. So, many of his followers, especially animal lovers were put off by the pic. But, it’s his reaction that seems to be hitting people harder. Plus, some folks think it was wrong to post it at all. No doubt, it looks like he didn’t mean to cause such a commotion. But, it might cause Bringing Up Bates to lose some watchers.
His Family Has Lawson’s Back
Lawson’s parents Kelly Jo Bates and Gilvin Bates of Bringing Up Bates support him 100% on this. One of them (seemingly his mom) chimed in and said that she supports her son first and believes he has done no wrong. Also, she gives a response to the question of losing some of their audience. She says they were never looking to take part in a series, they were sought out by the network.
Plus, she states, that they love the fanbase that is so kind and gracious to them. But, the family is what makes it and Lawson is hers. So, they don’t seem to be overly concerned about the possibility of losing it. They are happy just to live their lives. Continue to follow Bringing Up Bates and watch Lawson Bates and his family.
