Coco Austin has clapped back at fans after they slammed her for bathing her daughter in a sink.

Last weekend, the 43-year-old TV personality took to Instagram to share a clip of her six-year-old Chanel - who she shares with rapper Ice T - having a wash in the kitchen basin.

In overlay text, Austin explained that she didn't have long to get her daughter ready for a Patricia Field fashion show.

"The sink is easiest when you have to be fast," she wrote, adding: "We only had an hour to get ready and figure out what to wear."

Chanel looked perfectly happy in the sink, where she sat in front of her iPad while her mom washed her hair. Despite this, the video sparked debate among Austin's followers, with many of them criticizing her parenting.

After several news outlets reported on the backlash, the TV personality took to Twitter to hit back at her haters, writing: "Wow just Wow! Here we go again!"

"Giving my lil girl a bath in the sink went Viral? SMH," she continued in outrage.

"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," Austin added.

This isn't the first time that the celebrity couple has caused a stir over their parenting. When it was revealed that Austin and the 64-year-old rapper still push their child around in a stroller, there was a backlash.

The model took to Twitter to respond to the outrage and wrote: "Oh lord!! Really people? The world loves to criticize literally everything I do!"

Before that, Austin courted controversy when she revealed that she still breastfed her daughter when she was five years old.

"Chanel still likes my boob. She's five years old," she told Us Weekly, adding: "And I'm like, My child's eating steak and hamburgers. She just likes a little snack every now and then and more of the bonding between the mother. Why take that away from her?"
