YouTuber Trisha Paytas branded 'cruel and selfish' over bold baby name

YouTuber Trisha Paytas branded 'cruel and selfish' over bold baby name

Some brought up the rumours that Malibu Barbie is the reincarnation of the Queen again.

YouTuber Trisha Paytas has been branded 'cruel and selfish' after revealing the name of their daughter, who was born last month.

The social media star, 34, who was forced to deny speculation that their then-unborn daughter would be the reincarnation of Queen Elizabeth II, announced the name on social media.

And, perhaps unsurprisingly, people have had a few words to say about the new name.

Alongside a series of pictures of themselves with the newborn, Paytas, who uses she/they pronouns, wrote: "She has arrived. Malibu Barbie Paytas-Hacmon born 09.14.22 at 8.9 lbs and 21 1/2."

However, instead of congratulating the first-time mum, who previously feared that they would be unable to have children, a lot of people slammed the newborn's name.

Referring to the rumours that the child was the reincarnation of the Queen, who passed away on 8 September, one joked with a clip from The Addams Family Values: "Queen Elizabeth learning her new name."

A second zoomed in on a picture of Malibu Barbie, who was wearing a pink, strawberry covered outfit, writing: "When you realise you're no longer in Buckingham palace."

Other users took umbrage with the fact that the child is named after one of Barbie's most popular incarnations, writing: "Naming your child after a toy really says something about how serious you're probably going to take parenthood."

"I'm sorry but naming your child Malibu Barbie is cruel," slammed a fourth commentator, while a fifth added: "Malibu Barbie is cruel and selfish. It is an ugly [name] played by the poor baby's parents. It is NOT a cute name."

However, not everyone on social media was so critical of the child's name and others said that, for California, it was probably a reasonable choice.

There's a bizarre rumour that Malibu Barbie is the reincarnation of the Queen.

One wrote: "Y'all Malibu is a cute name and y'all forgetting she lives in California like pls the kids aren't gonna bully her cause another kid is gonna be named Sparrow or Leaf or Birch LIKE PLSSSS [sic]."

A second joked: "how yall are acting about the name Malibu as if people don't name their children literally Dirt or Pneumonia [sic]."

"Can y'all stop fr?" asked a third. "Kim literally named her kids North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm. Cardi named her kids Kulture and Wave. Ciara's sons are named Future and Win. Malibu is actually a BEAUTIFUL name and while I don't even like Trisha, y'all are reaching fr [sic]."

This isn't the first time the YouTuber has been called out on her motherhood journey, and critics previously said she shouldn't be allowed to have children.

She went on to address claims that her mental health, which she has publicly spoken about, isn't stable enough for her to be a mother.

She said on TikTok: "I always say actions speak louder than words so everyone's like, 'Oh she has a breakdown every single day.' It's like I haven't in a very long time. I've disengaged from drama for almost a year. But more importantly my sobriety. I've been sober since December 2020. I've been in active treatment since 2021 and it's working.

"To sit there and criticise someone else's reproductive choices just feels ick to me. I've prayed for this for so long and God has finally blessed me."
