HOW MUCH OF AN INFLUENCE IS SOCIAL MEDIA FOR YOUNG MEN

We all love our mother, but is there a such thing as too much love? Many celebs this past Mother’s Day dropped photos showing appreciation for their mother. One celeb, according to some of the web, has went a bit too far. Colombian singer, Maluma, gets major backlash from social media for the photo that recently dropped of him locking lips with his mother, this past Mother’s Day. "Feliz día amor de mi vida, FELIZ DÍA MADRE," he wrote under the photo, which means "Happy day love of my life, Happy Mother's Day."

This has sent social media into an uproar, many saying that locking on the lips with his mother was too far. Others, not being able to find the issue with the singer showing love to his mother. Many of Maluma’s fans and his representatives are coming to his defense, calling it a cultural difference, but is it really a cultural difference? Insisting there is nothing weird about his display of affection, which is considered perfectly 'normal' in Latin culture.

On the opposite side of the world, Diddy Comb’s son, Christian Comb, recently posted a childhood throwback photo locking lips with his late mother, Kim Porter, when he was a toddler. The caption stating “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOMMY!! I Love You And Miss you SOOO SOOO MUCH. I WISH I COULD HUG AND KISS YOU A MILLION times right now”. The love and support the photo is receiving is overwhelming. Many fans commenting things like, “I love this!” and “Happy Mommy’s Day, Rest up Kim Porter.”

The thought is, what is the difference in these two photos? Is there a difference? Is social media teaching young men that it’s something wrong with showing affection, or is this really a cultural difference?
