Who is Raquel Dicuru? Mom slammed for 'showing too much cleavage' at 7-yr-old son's birthday party
Raquel Dicuru, a resident of Tonbridge, Kent, sported an off-the-shoulder floral sundress on Monday, June 18, as she celebrated the seventh birthday of her son Alex. The 37-year-old mom leaned down during the birthday song in an attempt to keep the candle lit, not aware that her breasts were prominently on display in front of the group of young children.
When Dicuru uploaded the pictures and video later that night, she sarcastically captioned the video, "When you didn't realize your boobies were stealing the spotlight at your son's birthday party until you saw pics and vid later that evening!" Unfortunately, some viewers missed the humor, and Raquel was subject to a barrage of criticism for her "indecent" clothing.
One person replied, "Yeah right, everything about you screams 'look at me,'" and another said, "The fact you highlighted this, is sick." The mother defended herself and said that her sister-in-law's camera angle was primarily to blame for the problem.
Dicuru said, "She was filming from above and I was crouching down a little bit. We were all just living in the moment and singing happy birthday to my son. So I just thought it was funny that we were all unaware. I posted it online because I thought it was funny and got a shock when I saw the reaction."
Dicuru was pleased that she had people standing up for her and telling trolls to "lighten up" when the video went viral. She had decided to delete the entire clip after removing some "nasty comments" due to the video's popularity.
At first, Dicuru was taken aback by the harsh remarks, but she was certain that she did nothing wrong by wearing the outfit she wanted to. She said, "The main issue seemed to be that I was being 'indecent' for wearing that type of dress and that I was posting the video for attention. Deep down, the harsh comments did make me question what I wear. But then I thought 'No, they're the ones who have a problem with it.'"
"It's funny how people are angry at skin. Half of the world has boobs, I don't know why it's so taboo. It was a hot day at the start of June. I was wearing something comfortable for a picnic in the park," Dicuru added.
