This isn't the first time Simpson has faced the "mommy-shamers."
While most of Simpson’s fans love and support her, many disapprove of her parenting choices. And they’re not afraid to say so. The criticisms run from mild, “Isn’t she too young for make-up?” type comments to much harsher judgements.
"That outfit on Jessica is pretty innapropriate [sic]," one commenter can't help but say.
She goes on to criticize Maxwell’s outfit too. “And no I don’t agree with her oldest showing her belly at that age and parents wonder why their kids are having sex and getting raped at young ages is because they are trying to sexualize their kids early to make them think they’re only cute if they’re flaunting it”
Wow. This person knows a ton about how Jessica is raising her kids based on this one photo.
Others came to Simpson's, and Maxwell's, defense.
“People will try to judge and hate on you any and every way possible. But at the end of the day what matters is you feeling good about yourself and what you have going on in your life! She’s happy and healthy and so is her family and she’d gonna live it to the fullest no matter what shady people say!”
Simpson seems to let the criticisms roll off her back.
After all, she’s used to it and she’s the one with the empire and matching bank account. Her image and her brand only grow when people are talking about her. If mommy-shamers want to keep her name in the press, that’s probably just fine by her!
In the meantime, her little mini-me is well on her way.
In scrolling through Simpson’s feed it’s impossible not to see the real and loving connection she and her daughter share. We haven’t forgotten that Instagram feeds don’t represent a full picture of a family’s life, but there is no denying that this little girl admires her mom and might just follow in her footsteps. She’ll have big shoes to fill, probably bedazzled platforms with 5-inch heels.
