Woman caught on camera fat-shaming 2-year-old at at Philadelphia daycare: 'SMH this don't make no sense'

Philadelphia parents were stunned when a video began circulating on social media showing an adult bullying a 2-year-old girl about her weight at the child’s daycare facility. 
“If you don’t get out of my face, with your big a**, what they need to do is stop feeding you,” the adult in the video says to the toddler. 
The child’s aunt, Jennifer Ortiz, explained to local broadcast station Fox 29 that she was sent the video on Instagram earlier this month. She didn’t know who filmed it, but recognized her niece, Auburey, at the Amazing Kidz Academy LLC. 

Amazing Kidz Academy LLC co-owner Lisa Smith said in a statement to Fox 29 that she was “saddened to hear of the mean and senseless post on social media,” explaining that the child wasn’t recorded by a staff member.
“We intend to reach out to the family of the child and try to fix this matter so that they know how much we love and value all our little ones,” Smith said in the statement. “This will and must serve as a teachable moment for all of us, that what you say matters.” Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to Amazing Kidz Academy LLC for further comment.
As the daycare was investigating the incident, a parent came forward to apologize for filming the offensive video.
“It was nothing to hurt anyone or like anything bad towards the little girl,” the anonymous woman told 6abc’s Action News. “I really would like to apologize to her mother more because I am a mother, at the end of the day, and I couldn’t imagine anyone doing this to my son.”
She went on to explain that she didn’t mean to post the video to her Instagram, calling it a “dumb mistake” she regrets.
Ortiz didn’t accept the apology, however, and wants the daycare center to accept more responsibility for allowing the woman to record Auburey in the first place.
“SMH this don’t make no sense nothing she saying matters you recorded an innocent baby something definitely needs to be done,” Ortiz wrote on Facebook. “Amazing kids of Academy daycare don’t have much to say but once again the recording came out of your building.” She added that her family was “definitely hurt about the situation.”
