Kim Kardashian‘s decision to wear a bikini as she spent quality time with her 87-year-old grandmother is being challenged by her social media fanbase. The 40-year-old makeup mogul made a point of reminding her 225 million Instagram followers that time with Mary Jo “MJ” Shannon is precious last week, posting a photo of herself and the mom to Kris Jenner and calling her grandma her “cutie.” Kim now faces backlash for rocking swimwear, although some came out to defend the E! star. Check out the drama below.
Scroll for the photo. Mary Jo, a two-time cancer survivor and semi-regular on the family’s hit “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” series, now lives close to the famous reality family following 65-year-old Kris Jenner’s decision to move her mom from San Diego, CA to Calabasas.
The photo, possibly from the inside of Kim’s $60 million mansion, showed MJ seated and with Kim next to her and placing a tender arm around her grandma. While MJ had gone for a lacy shirt and straw hat with matching trains, Kim went bolder.
Going full glam and looking pool-ready, mom-of-four Kim was seen showing off her famous figure in a little black bikini, one the KKW Beauty founder had paired with matching and statement shades. Kim took to her caption to shout out her famous grandmother, writing: “My cutie MJ.”
A storm has since developed in the comments section, all thanks to one user challenging the queen bee of reality TV as they wrote: “How you be dressed like that in front your granny.” See the replies after the photo.
The user’s reply gained over 650 likes, also sparking a massive conversation. “No I was thinking the same thing my granny would fuss me out,” one fan replied with a cry-face emoji. “I wanted to say that, but hell she might be a freak too,” another said, with a further user stating: “My thoughts exactly!”
Others, meanwhile, told the comments to take a chill pill, with one saying it’s “only a bikini.” Also pointed out was Kim’s ability to turn comments “off” if she didn’t wish to receive negative ones. More photos below.
In 2020, while celebrating MJ turning 86, Kim told wrote: “Happy 86th birthday to my grandma Mary Jo. Last week we celebrated my sweet grandma and she hasn’t left her house since January. First she was sick and then Covid lockdown.”
The SKIMS founder added: “So we got her best friends tested and driven up from San Diego to celebrate MJ. We even had her favorite piano player and singer from San Diego come to perform. It was such a magical day and grandma you deserve the best!”
