Larry enjoyed posting on daughter's social media accounts so much that he is now thinking to create his own TikTok account.
Madelynn is a 15-year old whose parents recently punished her for sneaking boys into a sleepover party. The girl was given two choices by her parents, Tawnya Ford and Larry Sumpter. Either she would have to give her phone for a month or for two weeks but with her parents' complete control of her social media.
The 15-year-old took no time to decide and went for the second option. However, the high school sophomore from Denton, Texas soon regretted her decision as her dad took charge of her Instagram and TikTok accounts.
In one video, Maddie's dad danced around with his son in law in daisy dukes and crop top. In another post, Larry uploaded his closeup along with the caption 'Felt cute. Might delete later.'
It did not take long before the girl's cool dad started gaining the attention of the viewers. Only one day had passed by and Madelynn had changed her mind. "After the first day, Madelynn was like, ‘I changed my mind, I choose the one month,'” Ford told TODAY. “Larry told her, ‘No. I’m too invested. I have too many ideas. We’re sticking with the two weeks.’ He’s loving it. I think he’s gonna make his own TikTok account when this over.”
After the punishment period ended, Madelynn resumed her social media activity by posting a picture from her early years on Instagram. She captioned it, “I’m back sweeter than ever and ready to make good choices.”
The girl did not really know about her dad's new fans as a follower replied to the post by saying, “Call me crazy, but your dad made cooler posts.”
The girl's mother later said with amusement, “We’re always down to embarrass our kids!”
