On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and her 86-year-old grandmother, Mary Jo "MJ" Shannon.

While many fans praised the sweet family moment, others found it "weird" and "inappropriate" that the 40-year-old was wearing a black string bikini in the photo.

"'I’m just gonna casually pose next to my grandmother in this hot bikini for a photo op," another added.

"Imagine taking a photo like this with your grandma?" one person questioned, while another sounded off with, "Have some respect and put clothes on around your grandmother."

"Total lack of respect," another commented. "Really not appropriate."

Others responded to Kardashian's photo via Twitter, calling her out for not respecting her elders, and "using" her grandmother for likes.

Shannon, however, is no stranger to the type of content that Kardashian shares on social media. In April 2020, Kardashian revealed that her grandmother has a secret Instagram account that she uses to keep tabs on all of her grandchildren.
