A pageant mom might have gone too far when she encouraged her four-year-old daughter to use a lit cigarette as a prop on stage! Watch the shocking video!

Toddlers and tiaras and… cigarettes? One mom thought it would be a clever idea to giver her four-year-old daughter Destiny a cigarette to use as a prop with her costume during an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras

The contestant was dressed as Sandy from Grease, and her mom Lisa wanted her to channel the good-girl-turned-bad character to the extreme.

Even though the prop was a fake, Destiny used it as realistically possible, even inhaling as she would a tobacco piece. “Don’t forget to smoke,” her mom encouraged from the sidelines.

Parents were rightly outraged, and the judges were even taken aback by the inappropriate prop.

“You know Sandy was a good girl, she didn’t smoke either but she used it for image,” Lisa said.

“Destiny has a cigarette – what is she thinking?” one of the judges asked.

Although she was deducted points for using an “inappropriate prop,” Destiny still won Personality Supreme.

Do YOU think the cigarette was inappropriate HollyMoms? Check out the video below!

These pageants are just a waste of money! It teaches a girl that the more fake she is the more she will be liked in society. I mean fake tans, fake hair, fake nails, fake teeth, fake eyelashes…for goodness sake we are born with these things!! Not to mention the tons of make-up they wear. Its just a bunch of obese and ugly mothers living their dreams through these kids. Some of these girls even say they do the pageants because it’s what their mom wants and they want their mom to be happy, how sad.

It’s not about the cigarrete being lit or not, it is about money hungry parents who are using their children in the most disgusting ways and producers who only think about ratings and not the welfare of a child.

OMG! But what do we expect from parents who also put their daughters on diets, slather them in tanner, dye their hair, and dress them as hookers?

These parents always use the excuse “movie blah blah blah”… yeah… the movies starred ADULTS doing Adult things… not 4 year olds with cigs in their mouths, fake boobs, or prostitute costumes. You can’t use what adults do in a movie as an excuse as why it’s okay to have your kid reinact it onstage.

Why is this show still on TV? When will these insane mothers realize that the children in this pageant look creepy, not cute? This is not a matter of a show that if you don’t like it change the channel and that’s it, oh no, this show is pure child abuse, pedhofile wonderland and just plain trash.
When will the authorities or child services do something about it? what are they waiting for? another Jonbenet Ramsey tragedy or for the parents of these girl to start pimping them? shame on whoever encourages this disgusting show.
