Jessica Simpson's photo of her daughter causes outrage among her fans.

Some say it’s beautiful, while others say it is over-sexualising a toddler.

Jessica Simpson is known for posting a lot of photos to her Instagram, most of which are sexy photos of herself or cute photos of her kids. But in her latest photo some fans thought she may have blurred the lines between the two.

Two days ago the 34-year-old posted a photo of her three-year-old daughter, Maxwell in a bathing suit, with a hand on her jutted out hip – looking (some say) sassy and (others say) too sexy.

Take a look for yourself.

After the American singer posted the photo many fans were quick to comment on how beautiful her daughter was and how similar the mother daughter duo looked.

However, it didn't take long for people to start attacking the photo, saying that it was provocative, unnecessary and looked like a three-year-old trying to pose like a prostitute.

Simpson's fans seem to be torn about whether this photo is a gorgeous, sassy mini-me shot of Maxwell or an overly-sexualised posed shot of an innocent toddler.
