Of course, sparklers can be extremely dangerous for kids to hold and play with if they are left unsupervised. However, as a few fans pointed out in the comments, the child was obviously supervised by her mom.

Another fan responded to the comment in question and defended Hoda Kotb by saying, “I think I see a mother supervising. I will bet they are a Safe light up! Those are Hoda’s life right there!!”

Nonetheless, seeing the little girl with a sparkler certainly ruffled some feathers. What do you think? Should Hoda Kotb have allowed her child to hold a sparkler? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
