After her daughter, Puma Curry, posted a photo of herself and her mother showing off their derrières on social media, Erykah Badu was criticized by the public.
The photograph, posted on the 18-year-old's Instagram account on Monday (Jan. 23), received strong responses and positive reviews, as well as various celebrities and public figures praising the pair's curvaceous physiques. Others asked when and where the mother-daughter duo's clothes would be available for purchase.
Nonetheless, a number of social media users reacted negatively to the positive remarks and emojis, declaring the post to be inappropriate and in bad taste.
"And yall adults up here cheering this on," wrote one critic. "No wonder so many of our young girls are sexually assaulted. Y'all applaud this behavior."
Another equated Badu and her daughter's actions to "prostitution," while accusing them of maximizing their attractiveness for personal gain. "So yall advertising azz objectivfying and exploiting yall bodies for personal gain then posting for likes views and engagement for payment."
Despite the mixed reviews, the blog has racked up around 100,000 likes as of press time and has certainly captivated the public's attention, regardless of comments or opinions.
Puma Curry is the second oldest of the Baduizm creator's offspring and the daughter of rapper and renowned ghostwriter The D.O.C. Her two siblings are elder brother, Seven, who has been fathered by Andre 3000, and younger sister Mars Merkaba Thedford, who has been adopted by rapper Jay Electronica.
Colbie Caillat, Rihanna, and Alicia Keys are just a few artists who have gone viral on many occasions for their renditions of classic R&B songs. She most recently covered Alicia Keys' 2003 song "If I Ain't Got You" in February 2022.
