Heidi Klum and her newly 18-year-old daughter, Leni, are facing backlash for appearing together in lingerie in a new ad.
The former Victoria’s Secret angel and her model daughter stipped to their skivvies for the Italian intimate wear brand Intimissimi — a job they hailed as joyful but some called “very disturbing.”
“A story of self-confidence, joy of life and love between a mother and a daughter.
“Like mother and daughter. Every woman has a special place in her heart for her favourite lingerie,” reads the caption of a still picture of the pair.
The shoot, however, was too much for some viewers.
“I like to think I’m progressive in these things but mom and daughter in lingerie in the same video shoot is just a bit ick,” one user commented on the video.
“The photo is weird and the caption makes it weirder lol,” another noted of the other post.
“I wouldn’t model sexy lingerie with my mom,” another shared.
“Sexualizing your daughter the moment they turn legal is weird,” another chimed in.
But some defenders of the images came to the Klum’s rescue.
“I see nothing wrong with this, nothing disturbing,” one said.
“Beautiful & very classy…more skin is shown in bathing suits…her daughter is 18…legal…they’re both GORGEOUS & the only reason for the negative comments is 💯% pure “jealousy!” another reasoned.
The Post has reached out to reps for both Klum women for comment.
