In the unfortunate world of celebrity mom-shaming, which might as well be an Olympic sport for some people, Jessica Simpson can't seem to catch a break. After recently getting flak for letting her 5-year-old daughter, Maxwell, wear lipstick during a mommy-daughter afternoon at a MAC store, keyboard warriors are now going after her for posting a sexy photo to her Instagram account. The singer uploaded a picture of herself sitting in a makeup chair sporting a green silk robe, and people are finding ways to call her out for it.
Jessica posted the photo to her account on Dec. 9, and since then there have been hundreds of comments on the post, many of which are supportive, but as unfortunately expected, there were a few sour grapes in the bunch. One woman took a sarcastic approach by commenting: "Great example for your daughter!" Another added: "Is this how a mother of two little children really wants to act? Get it together Jessica, those days should be behind you." Some also suggested that she shouldn't be taking sexy pictures simply because she's a wife and mom. "Posing for playboy?" a commenter wrote. " . . . Isn't she married w kids? [What the hell]?"
Although we hate that Jessica has to see those types of comments on her photos, all we can hope is one day people will finally realize that being kind is a heck of a lot easier than being nasty, especially on social media. After all, celebrities have feelings, too.
