Madelynn Sumpter was having a sleepover with her friends when she decided to sneak some boys over. Her parents gave her two choices: Either lose her phone privileges for a month or give her parents access to her social media accounts. The 15-year-old chose the latter, which led to hilarity with her dad posting embarrassing photos daily.

When Tawnya Ford and Larry Sumpter gave Madelynn the ultimatum, and she chose the social media route, Larry knew he had to make her never want to go against his wishes again. Instead of simply grounding her, Larry decided to have some fun with the newly-gained access to her social media accounts.
Ironically, his quirky photos have made her much more popular on Instagram as his pics have gone viral. So, it looks like thanks are in order.
It all started on November 11 when Larry uploaded his first photo under his daughter’s account. For the next two weeks, Larry uploaded pictures daily. It would be anything from an embarrassing selfie of Larry, accompanied by a stereotypical teenage girl caption, to Larry enlisting the help from a friend to do some dancing.
It didn’t take long for Madelynn to regret her decision of giving her father access to her accounts. “After the first day, Madelynn was like, “I changed my mind, I choose the one month,”‘ Tawnya told Today. “Larry told her, ‘No. I’m too invested. I have too many ideas. We’re sticking with the two weeks.”‘
While Madelynn may not be having the best time, Larry sure seems to be. “He’s loving it. I think he’s gonna make his own TikTok account when this over,” Tawnya said.
Perhaps the most embarrassing moment for the 15-year-old was when her father tried to twerk on TikTok, which is undoubtedly Larry’s best moment embarrassing his daughter.
However, this isn’t the first time Madelynn’s parents have embarrassed her.
Tawnya explained that Larry would often pick her up in her school’s mascot outfit. Madelynn has since regained control of her account, and thanks to Larry, she has a bunch of new followers.
