10 Times You Wished Your Parents Never Discovered Social Media

Mom and dad, can you please go offline for a minute or two or forever? :(

Brooklyn Beckham is the latest person whose online vibe was killed by his parents—for the rest of the world (wide web) to see. First, his mom Victoria shared an Instagram photo of him totally passed out after Coachella weekend. A few days later, his dad David put him in his place while he was making a video thanking his 1M followers on Instagram. Poor guy.

Brooklyn is totally all of us who have had moments when we wished our parents would just please stay offline. We're not here to make you feel any worse than you already do, but we want to show you that we understand what you're going through and there's no other way to deal with it except to have a good laugh about it. We know parents can be really embarrassing online sometimes,  but remember that they're just looking out for you and are actually mighty proud of the person you've become. So don't give them a hard time about it. You can always untag yourself from their posts or better yet, teach them how social media works.
