Yolanda H. Foster rose to fame first as a model in the early 1990s, and then as a television personality on the hit show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

But in recent years her two daughters, Gigi and Bella Hadid, have found overwhelming success as well.

The two have reached supermodel status.

They both recently walked the runway in the high-profile Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — a milestone for their careers.

It was the second year row that Gigi, 21, walked the runway for the retail giant, and the first year for sister Bella, 20.

Their reality star mom decided to celebrate the occasion by posting a “angelic” childhood picture in honor of the two Victoria’s Secret models.

But some people think the throwback photo is anything but innocent.

Check it out:

The Instagram post ignited a firestorm on social media as many users pointed out that the image seemed inappropriate, reports Elite Daily.

Users wrote on Instagram:

“You should remove this, as your profile is public and you have no idea what kind of sick person will come onto this photo and take it.”

Another commented:

“Sorry! I’m a normal person, and this picture isn’t normal. Take it down!”

And a third simply wrote:

“Unfollowing. This is just wrong.”

Some users, like this one, even said that the post, which features her two children completely nude and draped with angel wings, was promoting criminal activity against children:

“People concerned care about the welfare and safety of children. Sex trafficking, abduction, and child pornography is an unfortunate reality in our society. To not draw attention to this aspect of the image shows a lack of awareness or willful ignorance. Loving your child and teaching the child that their body is beautiful is one thing, posting naked pictures of you children to the internet is another.”

The concern is a valid one.

The prevalence of child sexual abuse imagery has increased more than 5,000% since 2007, according to Thorn.

Awareness of the issue has grown in recent years as high-profile figures are charged for child porn crimes with frightening regularity.

Popular Subway spokesman, Jared Fogle, pled guilty to child porn charges last year.

And “Glee” star Mark Salling was also arrested on similar charges.

It's an issue many say the mom should have been aware of before she made the post.

Yolanda has yet to respond to the criticism, but she has apparently turned off Instagram comments on the controversial photo,

The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was filmed in Paris last week, but will air Monday night on CBS.
