Rosie takes down photo of her child soldier/daughter, Vivienne

Posted by: Ted Mann - Posted in Rosie O'Donnell, South Nyack, TMZ on Jun 27, 2007

After posting an ultra-creepy image of her daughter, Vivienne, wearing fatigues and an ammo belt yesterday — under the headline “a picture is worth a thousand posts” — O’Donnell got almost universally slammed. Here are just a few of the angry comments:

<blockquote><div>

KARLA
RO, I AGREE WITH U ON MOSTLY EVERYTHING. BUT SOMEHOW I FOUND THE PICTURE OF VIVI DISTURBING. I DON’T EVEN LET MY CHILDREN PLAY WITH ANYTHING SIMILAR TO THAT. IT’S JUST A COMMENT. BUT OH WELL!!!!!!

Kitty
what’s with the new pic? it’s rather disturbing!

Eula Hollon
Help me out here….Why is that child in the header pic(your child I believe) wearing a bullet belt around her? Is there a political statement ur trying to make?

David
that picture is gross! I am distrubed…leaving your site for a clearing of my mind as to what you are up to!

Amanda
Are you kidding me with that pic of your daughter? Why would you do that?

Jon E.
Not sure of the “message� you are trying to send with that pic of Viv, but I guarantee many are not going to get it… Children with bullets, even fake…?? what are u thinking?</div></blockquote>

There were a few positive comments too, but nobody seemed quite sure what the message was supposed to be — a critique of child soldiers? A protest of the war in Iraq? A metaphor for the combative Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

O’Donnell since removed the photo, and rather than just lifting a copy here, I’ll point you to it over at TMZ. Any and all artistic interpretations are welcome.

UPDATE: As bizarre and disturbing as the photo of O’Donnell’s daughter is, somebody managed to top it with this photo of O’Donnell herself. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Many thanks to F.O.S. (Friend of Suburbarazzi) Amy Vernon for the tips.
