Labrant Family Controversy: A Couple from A Popular YouTube Channel Receives Criticism for Equating Abortion with The Holocaust
On August 21, 1996, Cole entered the world in Troy, Alabama. He was raised in a Christian home, and his faith is still very important to him today. In 2013, with the help of his friends Baylor Barnes and John Stephen Grice, Cole created the Vine channel Dem White Boyz, which launched his career. Most of the material was comedic pranks, stunts, or other such antics.
Barnes and Grice lost interest in social media, and Cole stepped in to relaunch their accounts under his own name. When hackers erased a lot of Cole’s Vine videos, he began posting religious videos instead.
Cole and his mom placed second in the 2016 Amazing Race. After the show ended, he continued to explore acting opportunities and was later seen in Sanders Short, Sadie and Emmie, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Cole wed social media star Savannah Rose Soutas that same year (2017). After having their first kid, the couple rebranded their YouTube channel as The LaBrant Family instead of its original name, Cole&Sav.
The ‘tone-deaf’ comparison between abortion to the Holocaust in a new documentary posted on a YouTube channel with over 13 million subscribers has sparked widespread outrage.
Married pair Cole, 25, and Savannah LaBrant, 29, who manage the YouTube channel The LaBrant Fam, are getting a lot of flak for their latest ‘pro-love documentary’ video, in which they make a shocking comparison between the number of abortions performed and the number of Jews died in the Holocaust.
The 38-minute movie, titled “Abortion. (Documentary),” was posted on April 9 and has had over two million views. It has interviews with doctors, professionals, and activists discussing abortion, which they label as the “most terrible killer” in the world.
Cole and Savannah, who have become famous for uploading family-friendly films of their daily lives with their three children online, said in a new video that they weren’t ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-choice,’ but asserted that they were ‘pro-love’ instead.
The LaBrant family calls California home, where abortion is permitted up to 16 weeks following a woman’s last menstrual period. It is possible to take the abortion pill up to 10 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual cycle began.
When it was revealed that the two had compared abortion to the Holocaust in their “documentary,” they suffered a severe backlash.
Estimated death toll from the Holocaust
Cole who married Savannah following the birth of their daughter Everleigh when she was 19 years old, the death tolls from various genocides throughout history flashed on the screen. The video mentioned the genocides that occurred in Rwanda in 1994, killing 800,000 people, and Cambodia in 1975–1979, killing three million.
The estimated death toll from the Holocaust was shown, followed by a transition in the number of abortions in the United States, as if to draw a parallel between the two tragedies. More than 61 million people have had abortions in the United States since 1973, when it was authorized for the first time, according to the film, although the couple never cites a source for this number.
Many individuals were outraged by the LaBrants’ decision to link the tragedy they experienced to abortion, and many rushed to social media to express their disapproval.
One horrified viewer commented
“The LaBrant family is not in any way equating abortion with the Holocaust.” ‘In what planet did The LaBrant fam think it was OK to link abortion with the Holocaust?’ asked another. What? The LaBrant family released a pro-life video equating abortion with the Holocaust. ‘You can’t get much more tone-deaf than that,’ someone person added.
The LaBrant family has the right to their view on abortion, but you cannot make the comparison to the Holocaust, as a fourth Twitter user wrote.
One critic even went so far as to say, “It’s even more terrible that the majority of their viewers/fan base are real CHILDREN.”
What the fk is wrong with y’all? one person tweeted, while another said, “The LaBrant family is fking awful, the fact that they likened abortion to the holocaust is totally vile.”
“The LaBrants are so — the Holocaust and abortion are totally unrelated and unfathomable.” Another viewer exclaimed, “WTF?” with full seriousness.
Users were shocked by the post and said it was “totally mortifying,” with one imploring the poster to “do better.”
Cole and Savannah LaBrant
Cole messaged her for a shoutout, and that’s how he and the girl first connected on Musical.ly. There wasn’t much digital communication between the two. After several months, while on vacation in California, Cole ran into Savannah at a shopping center.
The two became fast friends after exchanging phone numbers. Cole ended up marrying Savannah and taking in Everleigh as his own daughter after they moved in together. The rest, as they say, is history as they started vlogging together not long after.
