Meet Don Rosing, father of Sophia Rosing
Paul Donald Rosing Jr. or Don Rosing is the father of Sophia Rosing. Don is famous for his daughter, but unfortunately not for good reasons. There isn’t much about the relationship between Sophie and her father.
Supporters of this controversy were the first to see Sophia’s father, a student, appear in court where he pleaded not guilty. During the hearing, Don and his wife were in court to support his daughter.
Sophia’s parents were also criticized for her upbringing after the incident. Many felt that her parents were equally responsible and that Sophia is who she is. In a Facebook comment on the publicly shared photo, one commented: “Look, that’s one proud mom and her brother.”
Another wrote: “You can tell racism and hate run in the family.”
Speaking about Sophia bragging about how she comes from money, another added: “Okay, dad looks like he MAY have money, but I know looks aren’t everything. But mother? 1…. Hmm, her face looks like something out of “that” 80s horror movie!”
