Yesterday, Twitter lost it over a video of Russell Wilson getting a haircut and Baby Future calling him “papa.”
During a Facebook Live stream, Ciara filmed her two favorite guys hanging out. At one point, baby Future says to Russell, “Papa kiss,” and it’s really adorable. But, of course, Twitter had feelings. There were some people who believed that Ciara allowing baby Future to call Russell “papa” was out of line.
What do you think of baby Future calling Russell Wilson papa? Is it okay because he's his stepfather, or too much? pic.twitter.com/TcF3TZwohr— EBRO In The Morning (@EBROINTHEAM) July 12, 2016

Y'all think it's okay for baby future to be calling Russell Wilson "daddy"? 🤔— Pen Stiller (@____SelfMade) July 12, 2016
But there were many who didn’t see a problem.
Russell Wilson supposed to just ignore baby future? Y'all complain too much— brownie brittle. (@_teewrex) July 11, 2016
It's a violation for baby Future to call Russell "papa Russ" but it's not a violation for Future to be absent from his child's life. Ok— #BLACKLIVESMATTER (@RLCE_) July 11, 2016
Russell Wilson and baby future seem to have a cute, genuine, relationship.— swedish chocolate (@therealkimj) July 11, 2016
Just because Future is baby Future’s biological father doesn’t mean he’s father material, and there are court documents that show that. Russell has been in baby Future’s life for quite a while and treats him as if he were his own. If Ciara doesn’t have a problem with it and their home is happy, then why should it bother anyone else?
