Farrah Abraham defends her parenting after posting risqué yacht video

Instagram star Farrah Abraham has been forced to defend her parenting skills after posting a risqué video of herself dancing on a yacht.

The trouble began on Monday, January 20, when the 28-year-old former Teen Mom star posted a video showing herself on a boat accompanied by a fiddler, dancing in lacy lingerie in a hot red shade.

However, a number of other Instagram users were concerned by Abraham's behaviour, and by the fact that she often appears in revealing clothes alongside her 10-year-old daughter Sophia.

Here's the raunchy video that landed Farrah in hot water: 

For instance, one Instagram-user wrote: "Cps should take your daughter away from you. Does she even go to school? @farrahabraham Why is she on a boat with you looking like that? Daddy Derek must be rolling in his grave." Meanwhile, someone else added: "And your daughter was with you!! Mom of the year right there!!! I feel so bad for Sophia...you seriously need help!!!"

However, in a recent statement made to TMZ, Abraham defended her parenting, claiming: "We live in a household together, we are fairly open. There's nothing wrong with a woman being fully dressed in clothing if that's a bikini set or whatever. I feel like a lot of moms are sex shamed, which I definitely have been in my life."

She continued: "I think when I am single, gorgeous, young and beautiful, I would almost regret looking back at my life not living a happy, outgoing life, and I would definitely hope my daughter's never shamed to cover up herself, and not be her happiest."

She added: "She was over there making TikToks and having fun and dancing. The yacht's kind of big, so if some of us are in the front and we're just dancing and having fun — like my friend's playing his violin and his girlfriend's there. I didn't do anything that nobody else is doing,' she continued. 'I actually think I live my life a little bit more conservatively than some people do."
