Jessica Simpson has two adorable children and regularly posts photos of them on social media. But a new picture of 3-year-old daughter Maxwell has a few folks shaking their heads.

What some see: Little Maxwell in a swimsuit striking a sassy little pose with her hand on her hip.

What others see: An inappropriate photo of a little girl in a swimsuit striking a provocative pose with her hand on her hip.

Comments from online readers of Us Weekly, People and E! include thoughts such as these:

“The hand on the hip pose is disturbing, it is posed, and sickos like that kind of stuff, that is my point. Parents including celebrities need to protect their children and their privacy!”

“It’s never too early to teach a girl to use her body for attention.”

“Does she really want to put her young child out there in bathingsuits looking sexy ... so sad ... get a life Jessica and leave her kids OUT of the spotlight until they are old enuff to make the choice for themselves ... so starved for publicity that she will use her own children in a disgusting way to get it ...”

Simpson posted the picture of her mini-me to Instagram on Memorial Day. Most of her fans loved it, commenting how much Maxwell, with her blond hair and pretty pout, looks like her mommy.

This isn’t the first time that Simpson has come under fire with a photo of Maxwell in a bathing suit.

The actress shared a picture of the baby, at 4-months-old, in a tiny yellow bikini that some also considered inappropriate.
