Jordan Cheyenne blasted by Aussie influencer podcast Outspoken over ‘sickening’ video

One of Australia’s biggest podcasts has blasted a U.S. YouTuber who was caught coaching her son to cry on camera. 

Amy, Kate and Sophie Taeuber of the Outspoken podcast called the video of influencer Jordan Cheyenne ‘sickening’ after the vlogger was busted coaching her son to cry after their dog was diagnosed with a deadly disease.

‘I didn’t find it funny in the slightest,’ said Sophie. ‘I thought it was really sickening.’ 

Speaking out: Influencer podcast Outspoken (pictured: hosts Amy, Kate and Sophie Taeuber) has blasted U.S. YouTuber Jordan Cheyenne for coaching her distraught son to cry on camera 

She continued: ‘This child is wanting attention. You could see he wanted attention from his mum and her to comfort him, and all she’s doing is trying to make him act for her.

‘It was so stage mum-like. It was so appalling.’

Another sister branded the video ‘disturbing’ for how quickly Jordan was able to switch from looking distraught over the dog to behaving normally as if nothing had happened.

‘To be able to see her flick that switch when she thought she was no longer being filmed for the video was really messed up,’ she said. 

‘It’s so sickening for someone to use their dog’s sickness in an attempt to generate views, but then it’s more disgusting to make your child perform for those views as well,’ Sophie added.

Jordan deleted her channel after accidentally posting an outtake where she coached her distraught nine-year-old son on how he should be posing for a video thumbnail.

The California-based YouTuber, 30, describes herself as a ‘beauty and lifestyle content creator,’ and has posted vlogs, often about raising her son Christian as a single mother, since 2013.

In the offending video, titled ‘We are heartbroken’, Cheyenne told viewers that her family’s new puppy had been diagnosed with parvovirus, a condition that can be fatal for unvaccinated dogs.

'It's so sickening for someone to use their dog's sickness in an attempt to generate views, but then it's more disgusting to make your child perform for those views as well,' Sophie said

At the end of the video, presumably in a portion that she had intended to cut, she can be seen telling her son to pose for the camera as he wept.

‘Act like you’re crying,’ she tells Christian after pulling him into her chest.

‘I am crying!’ he said repeatedly. ‘I am actually, seriously sad.’

Due to the increased backlash, Cheyenne, who brands herself as an ‘Instagram growth coach’ on her website, which is still live, said that she would stop including her son in her YouTube videos.

But criticism continued and on Monday, she said in a statement to Insider that she was pulling down her channel to focus on Christian’s ‘health and wellbeing.’

‘Getting completely offline, canceling all videos and monetization, and prioritizing my child are all I care about,’ she said in the statement.

‘I’m disgusted and horrified at what I did and there is absolutely no excuse. It’s terrible on so many levels. I love my child more than anything and will regret this moment forever.’

The video was quickly deleted, but not before it was reuploaded on a score of social media platforms. That same day, Cheyenne posted a follow-up titled ‘I am immensely disappointed in myself,’ attempting to explain and excuse her behavior.

‘In the ending of the video, I was so emotionally worn out… I had Christian on my shoulder and I was like “come pose for the thumbnail with me” after the video… I shouldn’t have done that,’ she said.

‘I wish I could show us at the vet crying and being so emotional with everything that happened. But then if I did that, you know what people will say? “Why are you filming your son crying? Why are you filming the emotional moment?”‘

She said in the video that she had received a barrage of ‘hateful, violent, cussing’ messages on Instagram.

‘Me trying to get that thumbnail was just so wrong and such poor judgement of me, but that doesn’t condone bullying and harassment,’ she said.

In a later video, she committed to stop including Christian in her videos, and said she was in the process of removing previous videos where he was featured.

‘I have made the decision that is 100 percent the healthiest for my child and his mental health to be off the camera,’ she said.

'I'm disgusted and horrified at what I did and there is absolutely no excuse. It's terrible on so many levels. I love my child more than anything and will regret this moment forever,' said Cheyenne in a YouTube apology posted soon after the offending video was removed
