Last week, a video of a mother ignoring her child on SEPTA made the Internet rounds, and police said Philadelphia’s Department of Human Services was investigating. Now, today, the Daily News‘ David Gambacorta reports the child has been taken from her mother.

During the weekend, the little girl was removed from her mother’s home by DHS workers.

The mother, whom the Daily News is not identifying because she has not been charged with a crime, posted this update on Facebook: “I f—— hope all you skumbags [sic] out there are f—— happy,” she wrote. “I just lost the best thing in the world to me all because ppl [sic] think before they open there [sic] mouths!”

The video originated from the still incredibly loathsome People of SEPTA Facebook page. She was riding the Route 66 bus on Frankford Ave.
