Family Slammed For 'Offensive' Christmas Photo Where Mum And Daughters Are Gagged With Duct Tape

A family has faced a backlash after posing for a festive photography session - with the female's mouths taped shut and wrists bound. The Johnson family were captured on camera in a series of shots surrounded by festive Christmas trees.
But the one which caused concern showed the mother and two daughters with green duct tape over their mouths while the father and son were smiling.
Dad held a chalkboard reading 'Peace on Earth' and the little boy gave a thumbs up to the camera.

The images were taken and shared by Hannah Hawkes, a photographer in Louisiana who has been slammed for the shots which people have called 'offensive'.
TallulahBlue wrote on Reddit: "Would you find this funny if it were all the men gagged and bound with women smiling and with their thumbs up triumphantly next to a peace on earth sign?
"I suspect if the genders were switched people wouldn't think it was funny because, "see! Feminists don't want equality! They just want to control men!"
While on Facebook Terri Donovan added: "It not only scares and disgusts me that the husband would request such a photo, it is even worse that his wife would agree to it... and agree to show their children what hate and ignorance looks like.
"Apparently this is all ok in their universe. Ignorance, hatred, bigotry and misogyny are alive and well, unfortunately.
"Ironic that they chose such a view to celebrate the life of a man who TRIED to teach loving acceptance of all, regardless of their sex or station in life."

However another image shared did show the whole family with their mouths taped up, but that still didn’t stop people from talking. A friend of the family has come out to defend them, saying the family will not in any form portray abuse or look down on women but people still wants the ‘defender’ to shut up and take the photos down.
