Popular child education YouTuber “Ms. Rachel” has garnered backlash for promoting Pride Month to her millions of young social media followers.

“Happy pride to all of our wonderful family and friends,” said Accurso, wearing a rainbow-striped outfit. “This month and every month, I celebrate you. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m so glad you’re exactly who you are.”

“To those who are going to comment they can’t watch the show anymore because of this support, no worries and much love your way. God bless,” the childhood educator said. “I am not chasing fame or views. I’m standing strong in love.”

Accurso, who is also a children’s author and has books and clothing being sold at Target, upset quite a few parents who were taken aback by gender and sexuality being mentioned on a channel geared towards toddlers.
