When Jessica Simpson showed a picture of her daughter to Katie Couric, she never thought she would be causing a scandal!
But the photo in question, in which baby Maxwell is wearing her first bikini, has caused quite a stir.
Critics have popped up all over chatboards and Twitter to voice their disapproval of putting a small child in such an outfit.
Claude Knights of the child welfare charity Kidscape was particularly disgusted. He said:
"It is very disturbing to see a young baby presented to the world wearing a bikini. Celebrity choices carry great influence, as can be seen by the manner in which their accessories and behaviours are copied widely. It is to be hoped that parents will understand that “baby bikinis” are totally inappropriate, and that they contribute to the sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood."
If Claude thinks a baby in a bikini is scandalous, wait until he finds out they're born completely naked!
Is putting a bikini on an infant sexualizing it? What do U think?
