As OK! has reported, the internet hasn't always been so kind to the reality star, as just two months ago, people lashed out after she posted a dancing video that showed Chanel smacking her mom's behind. Just a few months beforehand, Austin received hate for sharing a TikTok that featured the tot twerking.

However, she defended the clip, noting her offspring "loves to joke" and is always trying to make people "laugh."

She's faced several more controversies over the years, including when she uploaded a video that revealed her daughter, then 6, was bathing in the kitchen sink.

"Wow just Wow! Here we go again! Giving my lil girl a bath in the sink went Viral? SMH!" she wrote in response at the time. "People, you gotta know by now that I’m an unconventional mother. I do what works and is easier on me. Some may want to take some pointers rather than rag on me!"

Perhaps the mom-of-one's most infamous scandal occurred a few years ago, as she admitted to still breastfeeding her daughter at 5 years old.

"It’s a big bonding moment for a mother and your child," she told a magazine, defending the unusual choice. "Why take that away from her? … If she doesn’t want it, all right, that’s where you stop it. But I’m not just going to say no."
