Myka Stauffer has been on the news a lot lately, and for those who don't much about her, she is an Ohio-based mom of four and a YouTube Vlogger. Stauffer and her husband, James, adopted an autistic boy from China in 2017 with Myka declaring her son, Huxley, non-returnable despite any and all challenges. Myka and James and recently rehomed Huxley because things were getting difficult at home and faced a ton of flak for this. All this negative publicity resulted in Kate Hudson's fitness wear brand, Fabletics, terminating Stauffer as their brand ambassador.

The 'Non-Returnable' Son Has Been Re-Homed

Myka Stauffer has four biological children of her own now: Kova, eight, Jaka, six, Radley, four, and Onyx who is just 11 months old. She and James Stauffer made a decision in 2017 to adopt Huxley, an autistic boy from China and said that she and her husband so fell in love with him that adopting him with all the challenges simply had to be done. She declared, time and time again, that Huxley was "non-returnable", and her social media subscribers grew as did her YouTube fanbase.

Stauffers' Said Huxley Is Happy With It

On May 26, Myka and James Stauffer shared a 7-minute long video about Huxley, explaining their decision to relocate him, saying that the little boy was 100% happy with the decision. Stauffer said, "We would never just give up a child with special needs, this is a personal matter to Hux. It had nothing to do with he just had Autism". The backlash is still severe, enough for Instagram users to crowd the Fabletics page and ask if they and Kate Hudson still had Myka Stauffer on rolls as the brand ambassador. Fabletics replied that the contract had been terminated and appreciated the query as well.

Fans Dissed Myka & James Stauffer

Stauffer tried to tell her followers that the decision was not based on Huxley being autistic and said, "Multiple scary things happened inside the home towards our other children and if these events happened with one of my biological kids, after all the help and after the behaviors we witnessed sadly we would have no other choice then to seek help and get their needs met.” Followers and fans were having none of it and commented this would never have happened had Huxley been her biological child in the first place.

Kate Hudson Is Free Of Myka Stauffer Too

Many went on Kate Hudson's Instagram page as well, asking her as to why she was using "scum" like Myka Stauffer to propagate her brand. Of course, in another post, Hudson had already mentioned that the contract had been terminated. But one Hudson fan was still angry enough to comment, "I hope you're just taking your time crossing all the legal T's to get rid of that woman with a white savior complex who chucked her kid after making money from exploiting him..." It seems Kate Hudson did all that and more.
