Mom turns 2-year-old’s ‘outburst’ into hilarious news report: ‘This is an active investigation’

A former television reporter has gone viral for turning her toddler’s tantrum into a hilarious news segment. 

Kayla Marie Sullivan may no longer be in broadcast journalism, but the mom has still got all the skills. After a tumultuous gathering at the Olive Garden, Sullivan gave her TikTok followers the inside scoop. She likened her son to a “2-year-old terrorist” who held her “hostage,” but that wasn’t the only highlight of her report.

“Kayla Sullivan reporting live from outside my son’s bedroom, where he’s currently being detained until naptime is over,” she said

Because the “story is about a minor,” Sullivan couldn’t “release all the details,” but she did not mince her words either. 

“What I can confirm is my son is a 2-year-old terrorist who held me hostage at the Olive Garden earlier today,” the mom explained. “This is an active investigation, but authorities believe the proper precautions were taken.” 

Sullivan brought her son’s favorite snacks and an iPad to dinner with some family friends. But that wasn’t enough to get good behavior out of the toddler. After several cries, a server figured out the boy wanted ketchup. However, that only resulted in the 2-year-old launching a ketchup-covered fork at the waiter. 

“Not all heroes wear capes, but this one should have worn an apron,” Sullivan joked. “These toddler outbursts are becoming increasingly common as more and more parents try out the new craze, ‘gentle parenting,’ and completely suck at it. I’ll keep trying…” 

Sullivan’s hilarious video received over 14.6 million views on TikTok

“This was my daily birth control. Thank you,” a user wrote

“Gentle parenting will be the death of me,” another joked

“As a parent, this is the best thing I’ve seen in weeks,” someone added
