A dad has been slammed for letting his kids loose while their mom was just about to cross the finish line at a marathon.

A video, which has been viewed over 11.4 million times since it was posted to TikTok, has raised some questions after a man was seen shoving his children in front of their mother while she was running a marathon.

The clip shows a woman in shorts and a vest sprinting towards the finish line when a man standing on the sidelines wearing a brown T-shirt pushing his two children - a little boy and girl - towards their running mother.

The woman swerves the children and continues running, clinching the win over her opponent who was just a few steps behind her.

Weirdly enough, the dad looks around shaking his head and raising his arms as if his partner was supposed to just stop running and greet the kids while she was competing.

And it looks like a handful of others were also shocked at how he could be so careless.

"This is a reallllly good example of the subtle way that some husbands treat their wives serious commitments outside of family life, like a joke or not serious, or just 'for fun,'" wrote one user, while another added: "The husband is some donkey, probably hates when his wife has achievements."

A third also questioned why he was "trying to make her lose," and another also agreed, writing: "In front of the finish line is craaazy."

Others also praised the woman's actions, with this TikToker adding: "As she should!!! What a huge accomplishment for her. For ONCE can we NOT interrupt a mom and let her have her darn deserved MOMENT!"

The dad got his comeuppance though, as one user pointed out that he was "yelled at afterwards."

The video, which was later reposted to X, also got a bunch of horrified reactions there, with one user ranting about the incident in the caption.


"Good morning. Time for a rant," she wrote. "This man shoves his kids out into the middle of a race, hi safety hazard!, to derail his wife's time and chance at winning. Then after she crosses the finish, he gestures to the side like 'hello? The kids?' Watch it carefully. Reader, I hate him."


Under the post, people also doubled down on the fact that it was a major safety hazard to put children in harm's way like that.

I mean, we're in 2024. Can we please start giving women the respect they deserve for their achievements? And stop shoving this idea of children at them... literally.
