Nick Cannon is getting slammed on Instagram for sharing a throwback photo of Kim Kardashian, who he briefly dated nearly 10 years ago, before “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” made her a household name. See the picture, which Cannon made embeddable, below.

In the photo, Cannon and Kardashian are leaving the 2006 Teen Vogue “Young Hollywood” party. He’s walking ahead of her with his fingers enthusiastically pointed in the air, while Kardashian is behind him looking down. Cannon wrote, “#tbt Kim look like she was so over my Bullsh*t here LOL. What’s your caption for this old school shot?”

Now, in Cannon’s defense, the picture he posted of Kardashian was actually one of several old photos he posted. Other snapshots he shared included Christina Aguilera, Mario, ex-fling Nicole Scherzinger, Tracy Morgan, and even Betty White. But many thought it was inappropriate to include Kardashian.

One person commented, “This is a little out of line considering the women [sic] is married and pregnant I’m sure this would bother her husband.” Another similarly said, “Mane [sic] sit your dumbass down, you punk you! What you tryna say or prove…yeezy coming for you.” Someone else even posted, “This is why mariah doesnt fwu lmaooo.”

But Cannon had some supporters, too. “this is not even messy it’s a flash back to laugh at. I swear everyone like d*ckriding and jumping to conclusions for a regular ass goofy picture,” remarked one fan. Another humorously observed, “I hit it I hit it I hit it first @nickcannon.” The reference was to Ray J’s infamous song about his sex tape with Kardashian.

Cannon has previously spoken about his romance with Kardashian in interviews, including one where he named her as one of his famous sex partners, as Gossip Cop reported last year. He later told Howard Stern that while (now estranged) wife Mariah Carey would get upset when he candidly spoke about his past relationships, she wasn’t bothered by any Kardashian talk because “she doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is… She doesn’t pay attention to that.”

Of course, Cannon and Carey ended up separating later that year. Check out the old photo Cannon posted on Instagram and made embeddable below. TELL US: Is Cannon’s post inappropriate or totally innocent? NOTE: Cannon has since removed the photo.
