The photo is of a girl holding an iPod and a sign, reading: "My name is Hailey. I am a kind, caring, smart girl, but I make poor choices with social media. As a punishment, I am selling my IPod and will be donating the money to the charity Beat Bullying, in hopes of changing my behavior as well as bringing awareness to Bullying. Because bullying is wrong."
Reddit users commented on the picture, calling the mother a cyber-bully.
"Well, congratulations on spreading the cyber-bullying," read one post.

Another user wrote in comically asking, "Link to buy iPod?"
