WTFriday: Why Was Suri Cruise Holding X-Rated Candy?
March 18, 2011
Kids grow up so fast these days. It seems like just yesterday Suri Cruise was caught sucking on a pacifier (actually, that was 11 days ago) and now she's been photographed handling a package of penis gummies.
According to the Daily Mail, Suri was spotted with mom Katie Holmes in New York City's Serendipity 3 restaurant/sweet shop holding the lewd candy box, which features cartoon-like drawings of male genitalia. Katie seems oblivious.
It makes for a funny photo op, but I'm not so sure this is something to wring our hands over. Kids pick up stuff all the time, and Suri might not have realized what the candies were. It doesn’t appear they were actually purchased for her.
People seem more up-in-arms about the fact that Suri, who is 4, was out past midnight. "The long night certainly seemed to take its toll on the little girl, as she was looking extremely tired," writes the Daily Mail.
What do you think? Does Katie need some parenting advice, or would we all be caught in less-than-perfect parenting moments if we were photographed constantly?
