Adam22 and Lena “The Plug” Nersesian accused of exploiting daughter in bizarre Sesame Street themed breastfeeding video.
In the world of social media, where the line between public and private life is increasingly blurred, the actions of influencers can often spark heated debates. One such case involves Lena Nersesian, better known as Lena The Plug (LTP), and her husband Adam Grandmaison, also known as Adam22. Both are adult content creators, with Lena having a significant following on platforms such as YouTube and TikTok.
Recently, Lena posted a video on her TikTok account, LenaThePlugVlogs, where she is seen breastfeeding her 2-year-old daughter Parker while dressed as Ernie from Sesame Street, with her husband dressed as Bert. The video has ignited a firestorm of controversy, with many accusing her of exploiting her child for online clout.
Critics argue that Lena’s actions are inappropriate given her adult content background. Lena and Adam22 are known for their explicit content, with Adam22 being a well-known podcaster, YouTuber, and adult film actor. Lena herself has been involved in adult videos with a pregnancy-fetish theme. The concern is that their adult content audience may not be the most appropriate for family-oriented content, raising questions about the potential exploitation of their child.
In response to the backlash, Lena defended her actions, stating that the video was posted on her separate parenting-focused TikTok account, not her adult content page. However, this argument has not quelled the concerns of critics, who point out that Lena’s parenting account has previously shared suggestive images of her during her pregnancy, and now features content focused on her daughter, including breastfeeding videos.
The monetization of such content on TikTok has also been a point of contention. Critics argue that Lena is profiting from the exposure of her child in potentially inappropriate contexts. Furthermore, they express concern that the primary consumers of this content may be individuals who are fans of Lena’s adult content, raising questions about the potential for exploitation and inappropriate consumption of these videos.
Adam22, Lena’s husband, is a controversial figure himself. He is known for his podcast No Jumper, which focuses on pop culture and hip-hop, and has been criticized for promoting antisemites and white supremacists. He has also been involved in adult films with Lena, further intertwining their adult content careers with their personal lives.
In an interview, Adam22 expressed his controversial perspective on his daughter’s potential career path. He stated, “I would be a ‘big d*ckhead,’ if I didn’t allow my daughter to get into the adult entertainment industry.” He further added, “You could make 40K a year with a normal job or 40K a month showing your boobs on OnlyFans.”
Lena’s actions raise important questions about the boundaries of online content, particularly when it involves children. While it is essential to respect the autonomy of parents and their right to share their parenting journey, it is equally crucial to ensure the safety and privacy of children, who cannot consent to their online exposure.
In the case of Lena and Adam22, their adult content backgrounds add an additional layer of complexity to this issue. While Lena maintains separate accounts for her adult and parenting content, the overlap of audiences and the suggestive nature of some of her parenting content have understandably raised concerns.
