Kim Zolciak criticized for mom/daughter photo shoot

Atlanta-based reality TV star Kim Zolciak-Biermann caught a case of criticism for an image she posted on Instagram.

Zolciak-Biermann decided to give her Instagram followers a behind-the-scenes look at a photo shoot featuring her and her daughter Brielle. She doesn't reveal the details of the images which were shot by Atlanta photographer to the stars, Derek Blanks.

Before you could say "bikini" Zolciak- Biermann's feed started blowing up with comments from people who thought it was inappropriate of her to pose with her daughter while wearing... bathing suits.


It seems some folks thought Brielle was topless. She's clearly wearing pink bikini bottoms but it's hard to tell if the bikini top is obscured in the photo or non-existent. Zolciak-Biermann is very clearly wearing a full bikini.

At one point, commenters even went in on Zolciak-Biermann for not mentioning her daughter Ariana more often. To which Zolciak-Biermann's defenders (who apparently are all family insiders) said Ariana prefers not to be in the spotlight.

The criticism that flowed in was equally matched by those who support and love Zolciak-Biermann, her family and her show and thought the image was a great shot of a mom and daughter loving life.
