This couple really ain’t isht!
Two Chicago parents left their two children alone for the weekend while they flew to Las Vegas for the weekend with some friends.
Shanpreta Howard and Antowain Johnson were charged with child endangerment after they left their 9-year-old daughter and the-12-year-old son alone to fend for themselves. The couple left Chicago on the evening of Wednesday February 22 and did not return until Friday afternoon.
Their son’s teacher called police once he told her that he and his sister were alone at home while their parents were in Nevada.
The parents did not make an effort to hide their ‘Hangover’ style trip, frequently posting about their plans on Facebook. Both during and after their trip, they added photos of the Las Vegas sights. Johnson even updated his status at one point to say: ‘Bout to hit the Strip Club’.
In the days leading up to the trip, Howard posted about how she was getting her nails done and was ‘ready to go n enjoy myself’. Johnson even commented on that post, saying it would be ‘Hangover 3’. Pictures and posts confirm that they went with six other friends to enjoy their weekend away.
In spite of the fact that they left their children unattended for days, they do appear to be loving parents. They both frequently mention their children in posts.
‘LOVE OUT KIDS WITH ALL OUR HEART N WILL TRAVEL TO THE END OF THE WORLD FOR THEM #PROUDPARENTS’ was one such post by Howard.
On their son’s 13th birthday this past Friday, both Howard and Johnson said that they felt blessed and that they loved him.
Johnson and Howard turned themselves in to police on Tuesday.
What the hell?? Here’s a rule of thumb; if you talk about how much you love your kids on Facebook but leave them alone for days just to get your “Hangover” on in Vegas… you might NOT really love them that much!!! #BADPARENTS
