It's unclear whether officials are still investigating, but no charges have been filed yet.
According to The Blaze, Sheaks says the photos were just supposed to be creative baby photos, similar to those seen online with babies sleeping in mixing bowls. But she learned a lesson quickly.
WBNS: "What we think is funny that other people don't."
WRC-TV: "We would never go out of our way to harm these children. Ever. Ever."
Sheaks says the duct tape was only on her granddaughter's face for the time it took to take the photo. But regardless, just like a Band-Aid hurts to remove, we're sure the duct tape wasn't any more pleasant.
So then, what is it? Abusive, funny, creative? Everyone has their own opinions. HLN's Robin Meade points out there's a cost you pay when sharing on social media.
HLN: "Just because you think 'Oh, look at that!' and you want to show somebody ... you're showing everybody."
And this obviously isn't the first time people have received unsolicited parenting advice from viewers on social media.
You might remember this recent viral video of a daddy-daughter date. The creators intended it to be sweet.
But some viewers believed it to be disgusting and awkward.
Again, right now no charges have been filed in the most recent case.
