Kim Kardashian made instant headlines as she stripped down to snakeskin swimwear to debut her latest SKIMS Swim drop last month, but the photo of her near-bursting out of her bikini received mixed reviews. While her Instagram post largely gained love as her 362 million followers sent praise, those seeing media outlet coverage of the look were raising eyebrows. Kim, 43, quickly had her snakeskin bikini snaps covered by The Daily Mail. Users here are notoriously harsh on the 43-year-old, and it looks like this crowd wasn't in the mood to flatter her.

Mom-shaming the star, a further user asked: "What does she tell her children about these advertisements?"
