A popular Chicago preacher, Bishop Larry Trotter, stirred up some controversy when he Instagrammed a picture of himself in the bathtub with his granddaughter. This is the photo:
According to the IBTimes, one outraged viewer said, “This might seem innocent but my question to you is why on earth you are taking a bath where your 4/5 year old granddaughter can just walk in on you and question about the bubbles in the tub.”
Another wrote, “I simply could not find anything right with this picture and I looked for 3 minutes.”
Funky Dineva got a statement from Trotter and it sounds more innocent that people are making it seem.
Trotter says he was in the bathtub, his granddaughter walked in and asked him about the bubbles in the tub. He explained to her that they were bubbles just like the ones she played/bathed in when she was a baby. Enamored with the bubbles, she wanted to get it. From there he put on trunks, the child’s mother put trunks on her, and the two frolicked in the tub. Mom snapped a photo of the two in the tub and another family member who manages the Bishop’s social media posted the photo. According to the Bishop, it was nothing more and nothing less. He also went on to mention that he has bathed with all of his children, he was raised that way, and made mention of the fact that coming up he and siblings / other relatives even shared bathed water.
