Myka Stauffer Controversy: Adopted Son, Petition, Backlash
Myka Stauffer suffered a major backlash as she admitted to giving up their adopted son, Huxley after three years togetherness. While many questioned the ethics of the YouTuber, Myka responded that there were a lot more special needs that they weren’t aware of and that they were not told.
As the controversy spread like wildfire, Myka and her husband’s attorneys stepped in. In a legal statement published by the People magazine, their representative said:
“Since his adoption, they consulted with multiple professionals in the healthcare and educational arenas in order to provide Huxley with the best possible treatment and care. Over time, the team of medical professionals advised our clients it might be best for Huxley to be placed with another family. Myka and James were forced to make a difficult decision.”
Despite Myka’s emotional confessions to justify her action, the fans remained unconvinced. A petition to demonetize her videos featuring Huxley and/or any content concerning Huxley was set up on change.org. Myka was alleged of unethical and emotionally abusive behavior and the petition with a goal of 50,000 signs was on the run on.
