Christina El Moussa’s bikini photo with her young daughter sparked a debate on “The View” on Friday. Check out the video below.

The “Flip or Flop” star was criticized on social media after posting a picture of herself and her 6-year-old daughter in matching bikinis. The professional photo was taken as part of a campaign for a swimwear line. Many branded the snapshot inappropriate, given the young girl’s age. On the ABC talk show, not everyone agreed.

“I’m not troubled by it. I’m all for modesty, but I don’t see anything sexual in it,” Sunny Hostin said, arguing, “This is a little girl being twinsies with her mom.” But as a former prosecutor, she warned, “You have to be careful posting that because people will sexualize it.”

Paula Faris said that if she dressed her own 9-year-old daughter that way, “My husband’s first response would be, ‘Where’s her clothes?'” She insisted, “There are creeps and you have to protect your children.” Sara Haines and Jedediah Bila offered a different perspective.

“My problem with this story is the mommy-shaming and the parent-shaming,” commented Haines, explaining, “I trust that she knows what’s best with her child, and I don’t think being part of the negative rhetoric around that [helps] because I guarantee I did 10 things wrong [as a mom] yesterday.”

Bila, who does not have kids, remarked, “I don’t see sex. I had a little bikini when I was little.” She acknowledged there’s “creeps out there,” but said of the reality star, “She’s doing nothing wrong, and I guarantee you there were people out there that responded negatively because they were jealous because she looks hot… This looks like a mom and her kid having fun.”

Haines went on to say, “If was a and a little boy, we would look at it and say, ‘that’s cute,’ and move right on.” But, countered Joy Behar, “The pervs do not discriminate male or female.” Bila responded, “Don’t live your life catering to what a perv may or may not say.” Watch below.
