This is NOT an #ad, @maccosmetics is my daughter's favorite store! Mommy-Daughter Day with #MAXIDREW #girlygoth
"This is NOT an #ad, @maccosmetics is my daughter’s favorite store! Mommy-Daughter Day with #MAXIDREW #girlygoth," Jessica captioned the image.
Jessica's 4 million Instagram followers let her have it, with many of them parent-shaming her.
"Her favorite store?? OMG. She should be playing outside or learning about the world not sitting in a chair putting on make up at MAC. What's wrong with you," one person wrote.
"Isn't she too young for makeup?" another asked.
Per usual, many people came to Jessica's defense.
"People need to chill the eff out!! It's a mummy-daughter day, most girls would have thought this was so fun," one person commented. "She's not doing anything wrong or illegal."
Another commented foresaw the negativity, writing, "I’m sure the trolls are gonna have a field day! You’re a good mommy to support her interests!"
Another said, "This poor girl can’t catch a break. Cute pic of mommy and daughter day. It’s the holiday season - stop being haters."
This is hardly the first time Jessica has dealt with negativity when it comes to her parenting. On Halloween, the parent police again mom-shamed her for dyeing her daughter's hair dark as a part of a costume.
Jessica Simpson was only 17 when she signed her first recording contract. Sony president Tommy Mottola signed Simpson as an answer to Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, whose careers had both begun to take off. He decided to market her "anti-sex appeal" to set her apart from the two, leading Simpson to publicly commit to waiting until after marriage to have sex.
