Scott Mackintosh is the talk of the nation for the novel way he chose to teach his daughter a lesson about dressing appropriately.
Scott’s 19-year-old daughter, Miley, named just like Miley Cyrus, likes to push the envelope by wearing sexy outfits and posts examples online.
Last week, the family was going out to dinner and she was wearing her favorite pair of short shorts.
She said, “My mom was like, ‘You need to change your shorts’ and I said ‘No.’”
That's when dad got creative.
He said, “I thought I’m going to try something different. I’m going to try a different approach.”
So, he cut up some old jeans and made his own pair of skimpy shorts.
He said, “I cut them twice. I cut them once and put them on and said that's not short enough and cut them again.”
He topped off the look with a t-shirt that said “Best Dad Ever” and then they went to dinner.
Miley said, “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’
"People were gawking and taking pictures it was funny,” he said.
The pictures went viral and now, Scott is being applauded across the nation.
Most of the reaction online is positive.
One person said, “You go Dad!”
Another said, “Now this is a real Dad!”
But some are critical.
One person said, “To publicly disgrace and embarrass your daughter for all time? I don't think so.”
But did the lesson work? Sort of.
Miley said, “It means a lot to me but it hasn't affected my wardrobe as much as he would like.”
She's keeping her short shorts, but dad says he made his point.
