[Watch] Twitter Can't Handle This Beautiful Video of Draya Michele Giving Birth

The reality star is getting slammed for sharing the intimate clip.

Published May 9, 2016

Draya Michele celebrated her first Mother's Day as a mom of two in a very meaningful way on Sunday, posting a video of her giving birth to her newborn son, Jru, who was born last month. The clip shows the incredible strength a mother requires to bring a child into the world and captures one of the most memorable moments in the reality star's life — so why are people on Twitter so mad about it?

Michele captioned the video with a note to all mothers: "Happy Mother's Day to the women out there. We are created to recreate and that is the biggest gift of all from God," she wrote. Michele then explained that she "had a silent delivery because I didn't want to stress my baby and when I pulled him from my body I've never felt so important."  

The video has sparked a debate on Twitter as to whether or not the intimate moment was appropriate to share on social media. Some people feel strongly that it wasn't:

Others were much more positive, defending Draya and the video. One fan even wondered if the criticism was a race issue.

Michele posted the video knowing that it would rub some people the wrong way, so she can't be shocked by the mixed reaction. Still, the clip sparks an interesting discussion about why it's OK for women to show their bodies on social media for the sexual pleasure of men, but not for the beautiful functions they can perform. 

Jru's father, NFL star Orlando Scandrick, also posted to Instagram to celebrate Michele's motherhood.
