Madonna’s daughter Lourdes cops criticism for underarm hair

Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon has unexpectedly sparked debate thanks to her free-flowing, natural underarm hair.

The queen of pop uploaded a picture to Instagram which featured a loving embrace with her 21-year-old daughter, unfortunately some users couldn't keep their opinions to themselves, and most comments were less about the beautiful moment, and more about Lourdes’ underarms.

“Beautiful, but her daughter needs to shave under her armpits,” wrote one commenter.

“Armpits! Yikes!” said another.

Fortunately there was some sense from users who defended her choice to do whatever she likes with her own body, whether that be to conform to traditional body hair removal standards or not.

“It's just hair!" one wrote. "Women have it . . . You are so beautiful and inspiring!" Another urged trolls to "Celebrate our femininity, not what beauty standards tell us what to do."

This isn't the first time the 21-year-old has made headlines simply by not shaving.

Just last year she was photographed during a beach trip with friends, and the internet spent days talking about her armpits.

Lourdes may have picked up the grooming choice from her unapologetic mother, who famously rocked the natural look in a shoot for Playboy back in the 80s.

To this day, she commits to letting it grow, posting an armpit hair selfie as recently as 2014.
