Followers of the 37 year old mother immediately jumped on her case about not being protective enough.

Casts are not 100% waterproof,” one fan reminded Simpson.

Another follower shared a personal anecdote, saying, “my son broke 2 bones in his elbow and required surgery. He was given no restrictions. Except he couldn’t swim bc of surgery he was unable to get a waterproof cast (sic).

Another one said, “I’m sure he will see at his next appointment how fast it is healing! And quite possibly need to be casted much longer as a result. This just seems like common sense to anyone with a brain. This is incredibly stupid!

Is that how he broke it to begin with?” another follower asked.

This doesn’t seem very smart to me but then again I know the difference between chicken and tuna….” another one admitted defeat in the middle of the criticism of Simpson’s parenting.

Many others also rose to her defense and explained that throwing their son in the water was not necessarily harming him.

One fan became very vocal in defending Simpson against shamers, asking, “It’s so weird, those of you saying this is a bad idea…are you the doctor taking care of her kid? Are you the doctor telling her what restrictions he needs to have? Do you know how bad the break is? Do you pay her bills? Jesus. Congrats on being a nurse or in ortho, still doesn’t make you an expert because guess what, he’s not your patient or your child (sic).”

His restrictions would depend on the type of fracture that he has. Also different doctors may have different ideas of what they want their patient doing. All these people in here that must have seen the X-ray personally and went to medical school (sic),” another said in exasperation.

People should try being the parent of a young rambunctious little boy. There is no holding them back. This kid should not be deprived of summer because he broke his arm. I’m a nurse and it’s perfectly OK,” yet another shared.
