HomeTVThe Ellen DeGeneres ShowAdorable Cupcake Kid Makes His Ellen Debut! (VIDEO) Melodie March 20, 2014 14 Comments Trying to get your point across to a little kid is always tough, but this time it paid off! If you haven't seen the video of adorable, three-year-old Matthew arguing with mom Linda over cupcakes, you've been living under a rock. Ellen DeGeneres caught wind of the video and invited the mother and son on her show. Check out the clip of Matthew finally getting what he wants on The Ellen Show after the jump! 14 Responses logan_echolls March 20, 2014 That’s adorable? If I answered my mother with “what” she back handed me! Will this be adorable when Linda is asking her 14 yr old son to stop selling crack out her house and he’s like Linda Linda listen to me, help me cut this up or I’m gonna slap you Log in to Reply thecourt99 March 20, 2014 I have seen this on the web many times and people calling it cute, but to me, it is the epitome of disrespect. The negotiation was cute until he called her by his first name. The conversation should have been done when he began overtalking her. This one just isn’t for me.

The comments above mine are the ones I was hoping to see on my Facebook page when this was posted, but everyone talked about how cute this was. Cute? No way! I also cringed when I saw him being rewarded for his bad behavior by an appearance on Ellen, and his mother was rewarded with a spa weekend for being an irresponsible mom. I would have thrown in a parenting class or two. I may sound like an old curmudgeon, but I would have felt the same way in my 20s. I don’t see anything adorable here. All I see are the lost opportunities to teach the boy to be a more respectful human being.

I believe teenagers should have a voice in their home, but it sounds like this little three-year-old brat is THE voice in his. I’m glad to see that I wasn’t the only one upset by that video.

And when the police talked to that other little kid, he didn’t know his parents names since he only knew them as “mommy” and “daddy.” I love little Matthew. He’s smart and adorable!

There is nothing wrong with having the knowledge, but the child was speaking disrespectfully to his mother, in a tone like he was also an adult. That is never okay.

I would not allow a friend to talk to me like that and no way would I allow a child to do so. But unfortunately the child is not at fault; the parents are. First look at the video I thought oh what a sweet looking boy, this is going to be good. But that changed very quickly. Sad that the child is being rewarded for this behaviour. Log in to Reply Divatude58 March 20, 2014 This is amusing. But only cause Mateo ain’t mine!!!! My daughter has gotten quite a few punishments for talking back. Now I don’t mind an explanation or hearing out rationale but when I say no, the answer is no. Further discussion results in punishment. I think that kid has been taught to speak to her like that because an adult that they are around all the time speaks to her like that. Either husband, father, mother, sister…someone. I won’t lie, I laughed when he told her none of the stuff in the house belonged to her and started opening cabinets. LMBO. I think that they are at grandma’s house.

Log in to Reply Jon March 20, 2014 Looks like Linda hasn’t denied HERSELF many cupcakes! MOOOOOOO! Log in to Reply liason4real March 21, 2014 Cute kid, however, the parents better reign him in real quick before he mouths off to the wrong person. Log in to Reply AlexB March 21, 2014 See, some parents are weak today. Yeah, the little boy was adorable, but what he was doing was not. If myself or my siblings had pulled this mess, our mother would have whooped our behinds and our dad would have had seconds. No lips on our faces and we’d be grounded. We weren’t raised to be disrespectful to our parents in our home, and we damn sure didn’t do it some place else family or not. We were taught our address, what our phone number was, how to dial 911 in an emergency and yes, our parents names. We didn’t use them like we had right to though. Mom and dad and that was it.
