Heidi Klum Once Again Receives Backlash For Posing With Daughter Leni in a New Lingerie Campaign
Reading Time: 2 minutes
America’s Got Talent judge Heidi Klum kicked off the holiday season with a bang, or more accurately, a barrage of backlash. The 50-year-old supermodel was met with a fresh wave of criticism over Intimissimi’s latest pre-Christmas campaign featuring Klum and her 19-year-old daughter Leni.
Fans Criticized Heidi Klum For Continuing to Pose in Lingerie With Daughter Leni
The festive images show the mother-daughter duo decked out in the Italian lingerie brand’s red lace looks while playfully arranging wrapped gift boxes in the formation of a Christmas tree. All smiles and holiday cheer, Heidi and Leni seem blissfully unfazed by the inevitable internet uproar.
However, despite keeping comments off on her own Instagram, Heidi failed to escape the controversy erupting over Leni’s post. Fans immediately took issue with the perceived inappropriateness of the shots, making comparisons to the ruckus caused by their first Intimissimi campaign just two months prior.
While some followers doubled down, blasting the images as “sick” and demanding 50-year-old Heidi “wake up,” others rushed to defend the Klums. Supporters called out the unreasonable reactions, praising the pair’s clearly comfortable mother-daughter bond.
It can’t be denied that Leni bears a striking resemblance to Heidi in her early days, inheriting those signature bright eyes and girl-next-door beauty. However, Leni’s wide smile and bubbly demeanor inject a playful innocence into the images that leaves some fans unsettled.
The Backlash is What Made Heidi Klum Turn Off Her Instagram Comments
Heidi has faced no shortage of criticism over her boundary-pushing Instagram presence. However, the recent flood of backlash over her and Leni’s joint lingerie campaign ultimately became too much. In a decisive move, Klum made the choice to switch off comments on her Instagram account a few months prior.
As reported two months ago, Klum cited the overwhelming negativity and protecting her mental health as the reason behind her decision. After years of weathering cruel comments, the flood of recent fan objections to seeing Leni posed seductively in Intimissimi beside her scantily clad mother proved the final straw.
While Klum may miss engaging with supportive fans, ultimately filtering out the criticism won out. The model preferred to focus on spreading more love and positivity at this time. Klum maintains confidence in making choices aligned with her instincts rather than bowing down to detractors.
