Christina El Moussa is creating controversy with her latest Instagram post–a seemingly charming gesture gone awry.
The chaos occured when the Flip or Flop star shared a photo of her and her 7-year-old daughter, Tay, posing with their new French bulldog named Cashie. Fans’ enthusiasm over the pup’s debut on National Puppy Day was overshadowed, however, by outrage over what the mother-daughter duo was wearing: matching purple bikinis. And they were sure to voice their concern about Tay’s skimpy outfit.
“It’s not about ‘hating’ @christinaelmoussa, like everyone is saying,” someone commented, “it’s about the fact that she’s pretending this is about a dog while she’s broadcasting a 7-year-old’s body all over Instagram when that child can’t give informed consent. She could have taken a picture of the dog and the child fully clothed.”
Other were simply confused by the post, which features Tay smiling ear-to-ear while holding a sprinkled donut.
“Weirdest dog announcement ever,” another shared. “I mean great body but like what’s the correlation between the dog, the bathing suits, and the donut.”
Still, not everyone was critical of the photo. Other commenters praised the HGTV star’s slim physique, calling El Moussa “beautiful” and a “hot mama.”
These comments come on the heels of Christina’s shocking statement back in January, when she announced she was filing for divorce from husband and co-star Tarek El Moussa after seven years of marriage. The couple called it quits following their admission of “marital problems” and an “unfortunate misunderstanding” related to a gun-related incident reported on their property. It seems the star is constantly throwing her fans for a loop, and they don’t seem to be too happy about it.
We’ll let you decide whether El Moussa’s Instagram photo is inappropriate.
But photo drama aside, we have to admit this mom-of-two looks happy and healthy!
