Ivanka Trump, soon-to-be First Daughter of the U.S.A. (yes, this is all real), tweeted a (very adorable) photograph of her son Theodore to wish him a "Happy Birthday" message yesterday:

"Happy birthday little teddy bear!" she wrote. Can you spot what's "wrong" with this picture? Because many people on Twitter did, and gleefully jumped in to make fun of her for celebrating her child's "birthday" before he is technically old enough to have one:

Some people tweeted in her defense, sparking heated debates about what constitutes a "birthday":

Some offered up more complex theories:

To her credit, Ivanka responded to the criticism by RT'ing one of the (since-deleted) tweets with an "lol," proving herself a way better sport on social media than her dad.

She did attempt to explain herself though:

To me, the weirdest part of all this is sending your baby a "happy birthday" message on Twitter, since babies can't read or check Twitter. Even very, very wealthy ones.

That being said, Ivanka Trump and her baby seem relatively harmless compared to other members of this family so perhaps we should leave them alone. Especially around such a major milestone as an 8-month birthday.
