Kim Kardashian, a master at provoking Social Media controversies, has just sparked another. She posted a topless photo online–nothing unusual about that– but would you believe taken by daughter North? That’s the issue. North is only four years old.

Kim has never been one to keep her tits to herself. But posing topless in front of her child is sparking a fierce Internet outcry.

North took the photo standing behind her mother, who was in the process of taking off her bra. Kim promptly posted the pick on social media.

She got high fives from momager Kris Jenner, who must have sensed that Kim would come under fire, and other celebs like Emily Ratajkowski, who is very outspoken about nudity.

But others weren’t so forthcoming.

“Why Kim?? Seriously you are her role model. There’s so much good and beautiful about you and your family. Why cheapen it? You don’t need to,” wrote one critic.’

“I can’t imagine asking my daughter to take a provocative photo of me. This is pretty distasteful seeing as a child took it,’ wrote another follower.

But some went even further than that.

“This is so crazy what kind of mother are you ……. This is ridiculous….. She’s you[r] kid !!!!” wrote yet another.

“Jesus Kim you’ve really sooped now haven’t you” wrote yet another on Instagram.

Kim has made a career out of her body. In fact, she was launched to fame in 2007 when a sex tape with her then-boyfriend went viral. Kim eventually sold it to a porn outfit, which released it worldwide.

She reportedly made millions of dollars.

She’s been steady tabloid fodder ever since, posing nude or scantily clad in countless photos. But, now involving a four year old?

Most experts think kids start becoming aware of differences in sexuality at around age 6.

According to another school of thought, if the parent and child are comfortable being naked around each other, nothing is inherently wrong with it.”

North is Kim’s oldest child with rapper Kayne West. The duo just welcomed newborn daughter Chicago via surrogate on Jan. 15 and also have son Saint, two.
