Mom To Mom: Tamika Mallory Offers Her Support To Chrisean Rock

Activist Tamika Mallory is offering words of support from one young mother to another. Mallory is reaching out to help 23-year-old social media personality Chrisean Rock, who is currently facing criticism for her handling of motherhood

Rock gave birth to son, Chrisean Jr., on Sept. 3. She shares the baby with rapper Blueface.

Days after Rock was caught walking around Wal-Mart with her newborn son’s head not secured in his carrier, as shared by TMZ, Mallory told critics to stop judging the new mother so harshly. Sharing how she also had a child at a young age, the strategist revealed that her child “suffered” at times while she learned how to become a good parent.

“My heart goes out to Chrisean,” expressed the co-organizer of the 2017 Women’s March on social media. “She has been heavy on my heart. I was a young single mother and it is NO JOKE. I was young, fighting with my son’s father (RIP). I had no real clue about adulting. People talked about me. Many people didn’t think I’d be successful. I made a lot of mistakes and poor decisions. My son suffered at times.”

The 43-year-old has one child, but carried on with the new addition to her life as she dedicated her work in activism. Mallory hopes that Rock is aware that people empathize with her plight and support is out there.

“While we sit and watch sis struggling to find her way, I want to offer support,” Mallory said.

She continued, “If anyone who follows me knows sis, please let her know that there is a group of women ready to help her (we’ve already discussed ways we can support). When she said, ‘don’t film me, help me,’ it hit me to my core. I know it’s not easy or convenient to intervene in the affairs of people you don’t know, but I do it all the time. A lot of times, I suffer the consequences and I’m ok with that. This situation is no different!”

When naysayers asked why she doesn’t bestow this same advice to mothers who are not social media famous, Mallory made an additional post, explaining that she does just that.
