A MUM who was furiously accused of throwing a “Satanic” first birthday bash for her daughter complete with a horned goat demon, has hit back at trolls.
Janeth Zapata shocked social media users with the eerie bash for her toddler – which featured black decorations, a pentagram cake and images of goats associated with the devil.
The young mum posted videos of the event on her TikTok in August, which has since gone viral with thousands of comments.
She captioned the footage, which showed a still of her daughter grinning widely: “Rumours say I had the best outfit for my first birthday.”
Social media user Susely Cardenas wrote: “That wasn’t a birthday party, that was a sacrifice.”
The clip caused a stir, with another viewer Lorena Salazar commenting: “I don’t think it’s a party or colour for a little girl. I really don’t know what went through the mum’s mind.”
Zapata’s daughter’s name Lilith, fits with the party-theme, referring to the Biblical character of Adam’s first wife.
Viewers also noted the birthday girl shared the same first name as the female demonic figure of Jewish folklore.
The images show the toddler dressed in black next to a piñata resembling Baphomet, a goat-headed deity used in Satanic rituals.
The tot can also be seen tucking into a birthday cake topped with a pentagram – a symbol of modern occultism – in icing.
The comments prompted Janeth into issuing a clarification after a big backlash.
The young mum explained: “I see there are many news sites that put out my daughter’s party with lies.
“1. We’re not Satanists. 2. There were guests. 3. The party didn’t have anything Satanic. 4. The piñata isn’t Satan, nor the Devil, it’s Baphomet. 5. The pentagram isn’t inverted because it’s not Satanic.”
Another birthday party that gained attention for an unusual reason was that of a six-year-old who was left traumatised after her parents hired a Bigfoot character when plans for Elsa fell through.
Some mums have spoken out about the pressure of social media and how they feel it is ruining first birthday parties.
New research has revealed a fifth of parents think the demands of Insta, Facebook and Twitter puts pressure on people to make the big day perfect.
