‘This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back,‘ read the caption for the heinous image of 21 year old Andre Curry’s daughter whose arms, and legs were bound at the wrists and ankles, and a large strip plastered across the little girl’s face.
The pictured was brought to the wider public’s attention via various sites like The Smoking Gun & The Dirty, prompting The Chicago police to investigate further. Je’Vanna Cobbins, Curry’s friend, told The Smoking Gun that he was just “playing around,” and would “never do anything to harm anyone… [He was] being playful with his child. People play with their child differently.
The Chicago Police Department told the Daily Mail that they were tipped off to the photo and their special investigations unit is looking into it. “It’s an ongoing investigation,” a police spokesman said. Curry has not spoken out in his defense, but has since removed the disturbing image from Facebook. The widely publicized image, however, has already drawn many outraged viewers to his Facebook page to call Curry out behind his questionable sense of humor. The Mail reports that one commenter called Curry a “nasty child abuser.” “I hope you fall down the stairs and land on a bunch of bullets. Hate hate hate hate!” were the words of another angry observer.
