Family Dressed as Batman & Robin for Adorable Photoshoot Receives Threats From Jokers Online

Roxanne Daly surprised her husband Mike with a Batman and Robin themed photoshoot with local photographer Eric Thiele. The Wisconsin mom and wife went all out for her husband for this -- he's a huge Batman fan so he, of course, got to dress up as Batman, their son as Robin, and she was the one the dynamic duo were saving. But when people saw the photos online, they began receiving terrifying threats. Take a look at the photos and see what you think.

All I see is a family having fun and creating an incredible memory.

But that's not what some people see. There are people who say that the Dalys put their lives in danger, especially their toddler, by posing on the train tracks. Some are also noting that it promotes illegal behavior. These threats -- all coming from people online -- are serious. Dad Mike told ABC30 that, "Some people posted our address online, making threats that they would come in the middle of the night."

Awful. Mom Roxanne was so worried for her family's safety that she wanted to stay in a hotel until the threats stopped. I don't blame her. Now that, to me, sounds like a mom who is concerned about her child's safety, not one who puts him in danger. The internet can be a cruel place -- and a scary one. This is one example of that. The Dalys said that they felt they took every safety precaution and playing on the train tracks is not something they do, nor will ever do again. They are not reckless people. They were only on the tracks for the photoshoot ... for a happy family day ... for fun memories that would last a lifetime. Now those memories are tarnished by these threats.

I really feel for this family. Threats should never have been made. If people were really worried that this family put their child in danger, it would have been best to note that in a kind way, not instill fear in them that someone will come to them in the night. What the heck is that about?! How does that help matters?! It's a sad example of the lack of humanity. And it doesn't help anything. It's sad how anyone thinks they can criticize people online -- these jokers need to keep their opinions to themselves.

I hope the Dalys are able to focus on the cool part of this -- that they have some great photos to show for a great day.

What do you think of the photos and the threats the family received?
