Singer Erykah Badu and her daughter Puma Curry have caught the internet’s attention with their latest social media post together. The mother-daughter duo showed off their well-built physique which sparked mixed reactions online. However, Puma Curry has since defended her actions.
Influencer Puma Curry recently took to her official Instagram account to upload an image of herself and her mother. The duo were showcasing their glutes in fitted pants.
The carousel of photos was quick to go viral across social media platforms as many could not believe that Puma Curry would pose suggestively alongside her mother Erykah Badu. Many also slammed the latter for encouraging her 18 year old daughter to post the images to her social media account where she has amassed over 222k followers.
A few comments on the image read:
“Thirst trapping with your mom is weird. That’s the issue.” – the.painting.nurse/Instagram
“The issue is – Grown or not, you younger generation have no respect for the fact that your parents are generational icons, and perhaps HER fanbase don’t want to look at both her cheeks AND yours at the same time, considering she spent most of your childhood respecting your privacy. It’s weird, period. Stop gaining clout off your mothers name, by making her cheeks your topic of conversation” -pinkmeplease_/Instagram
“You’re a baby you can’t even buy a drink yet, these grown a*s men should not be lusting over you while you still have TEEN in your name.” -ajed/Instagram
