You've heard of mean girls -- but how about mean moms?
A Florida mother says she's "disgusted" by a Facebook group where moms bash pictures of other people's children.

A Facebook group selling gently used baby clothes had a cruel secret spinoff group. New mom Melissa Antenucci discovered by accident.

Antenucci says the group was copying pictures of other peoples children and then posting cruel criticisms.

Under this picture of a toddler, one mom wrote: You can absolutely not fix ugly-- this is a god given example of such. That same woman posted a picture of another child saying "no, just no..."

A second mom writes "An ugly baby thread, I have died and gone to heaven... Why can't you guys live near me so we can do this over cocktails?"

Antenuccu: "The things that these mothers said were the most horrific things that I have ever seen being a mom and knowing that they are moms."

She fired back with a picture of her premature daughter in the hospital next to how she looks now and wrote: "This is my daughter that is being made fun of because she is delayed...So funny, huh? Sick..."

Antenucci: "I mean, they used their own profiles. It wasn't like it was secretive at all."

Antenucci and another mom started copying and pasting the mean postings on their own walls.

One of the mothers making fun of the children responded: "This is Facebook, not the Salem Witch Hunt....This is a free country and I was laughing because it was funny....thanks for your comments, next."

When confronted, most of the moms involved deactivated their Facebook accounts. Antenucci and her friends reported the incident to Facebook, which told them they are investigating.
