Shona Carter-Brooks became the center of controversy last week when a picture from her wedding began circulating around social media networks and news sites. She reportedly dragged her newborn baby down the aisle on the train of her wedding dress during the ceremony. Although some people found her idea relatively unique, a vast majority of the onlookers were outraged. The baby-dragging antics led a number of insulting barbs and many questioned her character as a mother.
