A Savannah, Georgia mother is facing criticism after using Facebook Live to beat, berate and embarrass her daughter in front of her friends.

Shanavia Miller reportedly took over her daughter’s Facebook, opened a live video stream and spent five minutes hitting and scolding her.

The video has since been removed from Facebook, but has been posted on YouTube by a third party.

According to the video, Miller was upset that her daughter had been posting alluring photos on Facebook.

“Everybody sees you know now,” Miller can be heard yelling at her daughter during the video. She also says that she hopes the embarrassing video will go viral.

The New York Daily News reports that Miller later used her daughter’s Facebook page again, this time to explain her actions.

“I love my daughter with all my heart what ever (sic) happens after this o well my daughter is not going to disrespect me or herself,” Miller wrote

Miller’s daughter later posted on her Facebook page that “I shouldn’t have embarrassed my moma. I shouldn’t have been doing what I did.”

Savannah police have not charged Miller with a crime, after her daughter told police she was safe in the home.
