Reality TV star Kim Kardashian sparked outrage after posting a topless photo of herself taken by her 4-year-old daughter.

Kardashian shared the photo on Thursday with her 107 million Instagram followers of herself standing topless in front of a mirror, while her daughter, North West, can be seen in the mirror’s reflection taking the photo.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star captioned the Instagram post, “by North.”

Although the post was “liked” over two million times, and by the likes of her mother Kris Jenner and the supermodel Emily Ratajowski, it also caused a stir among many who argued that using her toddler daughter to take the photo was inappropriate.

British television personality Piers Morgan described it as “pathetic and creepy”:

YouTuber Jamie Perkins described the photo as “messed up.”

Other Twitter users also chimed in:

Kim Kardashian has long used topless photos as a means of attracting attention, having first risen to fame in 2007 following the leaking of a sex tape between her and the singer Ray J.

Nevertheless, Kardashian maintains that she is a feminist, stating that she “will always fight for women’s rights,” a claim that has attracted criticism.

Last December, Kardashian also flaunted her daughter practicing makeup artistry on a friend and has also revealed she wants to start her own YouTube channel.
