YouTuber Myka Stauffer Reveals She ‘Rehomed’ Her Son Who Has Autism 2 Years After She Adopted Him

Myka, who has four other children, said in the update that the 4-year-old enjoys helping his dad make coffee in the morning and spending time outside, and expressed delight at his developmental improvements over the past year.

By Wednesday, Myka had changed her Twitter bio to say she only had four children.

Viewers of the Stauffers were quick to express their outrage upon hearing that Huxley would no longer be part of the family, with several Twitter users using the hashtag "cancel Myka Stauffer."

"So disgusting. If her biological kid gets diagnosed with autism will she abandon that kid too?" one Twitter user wrote.

"This is sickening," another wrote. "@MykaStauffer you should be ashamed and disgusted with yourself."

Many of Myka's viewers pointed out that they wouldn't want to consume parenting content from someone who would give up their child.

"Giving away one of my children isn't a viable option for me, though," wrote one Twitter user. "Surely there are better methods of managing the obligations you willingly accepted. Frankly, I'm not interested in any kind of advice from anyone who would do this."

"Okay but this myka stauffer stuff makes me really sad bc I’ve watched her since before she adopted Huxley and when I watched the video it made absolutely NO sense?" said another viewer on Twitter. "Your child was too hard to handle? So you…. gave him back? Like…. a gift receipt. That poor sweet thing."

"You’re gross for abandoning your adopted son because he didn’t fit into your cute lifestyle," another Twitter user said. "So much this," another responded. "He was done making you money or what?!"

Many Twitter users criticized Myka for using Huxley in monetized content.

"This adoption hasn’t been the easiest ride," she wrote in the caption for an ad in June 2018. "We have had so many bumps along the way! But it’s by far one of my favorite journeys I have ever embarked on! I love everything about this little boy and I wouldn’t trade him for anything!"

A petition was created demanding that the Stauffer family remove all monetized content of Huxley from YouTube.
