Singer Jessica Simpson arrived at the Los Angeles International Airport in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (September 11) with her fiancé Eric Johnson and the couple’s 4-month-old daughter Maxwell.
It seems not everyone felt Jessica Simpson’s joy over a photo she shared on Katie Couric‘s new talk show of baby Maxwell wearing a yellow knit two-piece over her diaper. After the new mama’s interview aired Monday, internet commenters – as well as one British child welfare group – took to the web to voice their concerns and outrage over the the photo they believe to be “inappropriate.”
“It is very disturbing to see a young baby presented to the world wearing a bikini,” the British charity Kidscape group director Claude Knights tells The Daily Mail. “Celebrity choices carry great influence, as can be seen by the manner in which their accessories and manners are copied widely.”
“It is hoped that parents will understand that ‘baby bikinis’ are totally inappropriate and that they contribute to the sexualization and commercialization of childhood,” she adds. “We should not be compromising the sanctity of our children’s early years.”View Slideshow »»
