David Bowie and Iman's daughter, Alexandria "Lexi" Zahra Jones, is exposing her "perverted" online bullies.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old took to social media to share a photo of herself wearing a one-piece "cowboy" swimsuit to her Instagram story. Shortly after sharing with her more than 80,000 followers, the Bowie progeny fired back at an inappropriate reply she received from an emboldened troll.

"Horny today, aren’t we?" an anonymous user wrote to Jones.

Jones responded by sharing the message to her story for her followers to see, along with a message directed at the haters.

“Feels good to love my body after years of hating it and disrespecting it," she began, before explaining that her post was meant to celebrate her self-love, not sexualize her. "No shame in liking how I look in my cowboy swimsuit, but a shame that you’re able to twist it into something so perverted and vulgar. What a dim-witted piece of trash and sad that there are more people like you. Go f—k yourself.”

Jones has led a far quieter, more unassuming life than both of her iconic parents, but as the saying goes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Earlier this month, Jones, a burgeoning artist in her own right, took to Instagram earlier this month to explain how art has impacted her life.

"Art has been a rock in my life for as long as I can remember. I took art classes as a kid, always doodling or painting in those classes and during my free time," she wrote. "However I didn't become serious about art and didn't start refining and finding my style until I was in my mid-teens. That's when I developed a deeper passion and knew I wanted to create and share my pieces with the intent to inspire and push others to create their own."

Jones is the only child of Bowie and model Iman, but has two half-siblings from their respective earlier marriages, Duncan Jones, 49, and Zulekha Haywood, 42.
