Amber explained that she was simply “proud” of her son’s performance in the football game and wanted to show her affection by giving him a hug. They both hope people can understand and respect their close bond.
In a recent interview with TODAY, Amber expressed her shock and sadness over the disturbing accusations thrown at her following the warm embrace she shared with her son, Brixton. She said, “I was a proud mom hugging her kid,” lamenting over the fact that a simple act of affection has been misconstrued by many as something inappropriate, with some even threatening to call child protective services. Amber clarified that it was a pure moment of a mother showing pride and love for her child and not at all something sinister.
“He was feeling emotional, and I think as his mom, I’m his safe space,” Amber told the outlet.
Brixton addressed the online critics with a candid message on Instagram, which he later removed. He stated, “How abt you leave my mom alone. She’s never abused me done anything sexual with me or my friends or groomed me. She’s my mom she is my hero the vid of us hugging was a HUG. Go bother someone else and maybe hug your own kids. You all need Jesus damn.”
On the TODAY show, Amber also shared her perspective, mentioning, “I come from a very affectionate family. I hug my dad every time I see him. What you saw on the football field is just how we are. Brix will pick me up and squeeze me and then put me back down.”

It may have been 20 seconds, 30 seconds, a minute, I have no idea. But in this moment, time stood completely still.”
