Parenting is tough as it is, but quarantine makes it even harder. Many parents all over the world are being forced to juggle working from home and being full-time parents. And let’s be honest here—many kids who are having trouble adjusting to the new temporary way of life aren’t helping their parents by being easy. While there’s not much any of us can do to change this situation we’re all in, parents can at least vent on social media. However, not all parents’ complaints could be found relatable and we are talking about celebrities.
Justin Timberlake is making headlines for his “tone-deaf” comment during a recent interview
Recently, Justin Timberlake made comments about parenting during quarantine that raised some eyebrows. The 39-year-old singer, who’s raising a 5-year-old son, Silas, with his wife Jessica Biel, appeared on SiriusXM’s “The Morning Mash Up” on Wednesday.
During the show, Justin was asked how quarantine has affected his family life and his response was: “We’re mostly commiserating over the fact that just 24-hour parenting is just not human.”
After he was asked how he is doing during the quarantine, the singer said that 24-hour parenting is “not human”
The host of the show reacted by laughing, saying that Silas probably wants some time off from his parents, too. However, many parents from all over the world struggled to find this comment funny and called it “tone-deaf,” saying that a parent is always responsible for their child 24/7.
Furthermore, many people pointed out that it’s so much easier being a parent with such wealth and privilege that Timberlake and his wife possess. It is estimated that the singer’s net worth is $250 million.
