'Pierced' baby picture sparks outrage

By  | 

(CNN) -- A photo of a baby with what looks to be a pierced dimple is sparking debate on social media.

Enedina Vance posted this photo of her six-month-old daughter on Facebook. At first glance, it appears she has a diamond stud pierced in one of her dimples.

However, the stud is actually pasted on the photo - it's not real.

The photo has been shared more than 13,000 times and has sparked sharp debate.

On one side, those who thought the piercing was real. Vance says she's received death threats and other hateful messages from them.

But, others appeared to understand what Vance says she is trying to promote. Vance calls herself a strong advocate against piercing or circumcising children.
