'Vile' TikToker slammed for comparing disabled children to vegetables

'Vile' TikToker slammed for comparing disabled children to vegetables

She has now apologised and her account has been deactivated.

A TikTok user has been slammed as 'vile' on the platform after she suggested that disabled children were like 'vegetables'.

Kerrie Essex Baker, from Crewe, made the comments in a now-deleted livestream about abortion alongside her husband Darren. Watch below:

She said she feels 'sad' about the limits that disabled children face in life after using 'sickening' language to describe them.

"It's sad bringing a kid into the world who literally can't do anything." Baker said.

The TikToker, who has now had a petition made calling for her permanent removal from the platform, said there are two instances where abortion should be legal.

She said that these are when 'you've not consented or your baby is literally going to be a vegetable and have no life'.

"You know what I'm saying, like can't walk, can't talk," she added before making a face that appears to be mocking disabled people.

"That's my opinion, if you want to bring that kid up and have no life, that's up to you," she asserted after people criticised her in the comments.

Darren was also seen laughing during the livestream.

However, the video was not well received online, as parents of special needs children were quick to condemn her for her comments.

In an apology video posted before her account was deactivated, Baker said: "I'm utterly sorry, I really am sorry. It takes a lot for me to say sorry, but I know I'm wrong.

"A wise woman told me today 'it doesn't make you strong being a hard face, it makes you strong owning your s*** and being sorry.'

"I genuinely want to say I'm so sorry for how many people I've affected. I've spoken to parents today and I'm genuinely sorry at the way I made people feel."

She then said that she 'felt sorry' for disabled children.

Baker's husband Darren also apologised for his actions during the livestream.

He said: "Yes, it should have been worded different on the other video and Kerrie has apologised for that, we never meant to cause anyone any hurt or upset."

"Every single thing that I've said, that was vile and horrible," Baker said. "Looking back, that ain't the person I am, there's not more than I can say, apart from I am sorry.

"You don't have to forgive me. I want you to go to bed tonight knowing I'm genuinely sorry for what I've said.

"I ain't this naffy person that people think I am."

UNILAD has reached out to Baker for additional comment.
