Caribbean-born songstress Rihanna is not shy about publicising her heart-warming love for her family – and why should she be?

In a world that seems so full of hate, protest and bile these days, frankly, a little familial bonding is all I want to see on my Instagram feed. Apparently, some people disagree.

The same old keyboard warriors and armchair doctors took to social media to respond to this photo, which Rihanna posted to Instagram.

The sweet snap captured Rihanna and her young niece, Majesty, during bath time. The ANTI star wrote a caption for the familiar family scene, reading, ‘Unconditional’.

While that all sounds truly lovely, some of Rihanna’s followers on Instagram took offence to the photograph, immediately jumping to some unsavoury conclusions.

One user, who presumably has never bathed before, asked: “But why is she naked and the lil girl naked?? Like you gotta post this shit?? It looks weird.”

Another woman – who manages to sexualise a perfectly normal part of the female anatomy and a young child in one fell swoop – echoed the sentiment, saying: “She’s naked holding her breast, while the child is in the tub naked.”

Others were more concerned with the dissemination of a nude image of a child, saying:

…There are simply too many perverts and paedos on the internet to risk exposing photos of a nude buba to millions of strangers.

While another commentator added: “There is nothing wrong with this picture but I wouldn’t post it to the world… RiRi is not the problem nor her niece. It’s all of you out there and your sickness and your judgement that fuck it all up.”

According to clinical psychologist Dr. John Mayer, it’s pretty normal for young children to be naked around family members and even went as far to call it healthy behaviour.

He told Yahoo:

In fact, it has many benefits. It helps children accept their bodies and who they are. It helps them accept differences between people.

I’m not usually one to encourage celebrity overshare, but this photo represents something pure, sweet and joyful and sadly, the flack Rihanna received for the photograph might be enough to keep adorable Majesty out of the spotlight and off her social news feeds.

Meanwhile, I’m left wondering when people stopped adhering to our mum’s advice: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
