Rapper 42 Dugg has sparked outrage on social media after a clip of him kissing his son on the neck went viral, prompting the rapper to respond to the backlash.
The rapper, whose real name is Dion Marquise Hayes, recently took to social media to share a series of photos and videos of himself and his son to celebrate his 3rd birthday.
On Friday, the rapper posted a clip of him and his son, which appears to show the pair on board a private aircraft. While 42 Dugg is seen seated on a chair, his son is sitting on his lap. As the video progresses, the Free Dem Boyz hitmaker is seen kissing his son's neck and appears to give him a hickey.
The now-deleted video grabbed the attention of social media users who thought the rapper was behaving "inappropriately" with his baby boy and became a trending topic.
"42 dugg Wtf type kiss is this??? I'm about to call CPS #IDontLikePeopleWho touch kids inappropriately smh," one Twitter user wrote in the caption of the video he shared on the micro-blogging platform.
