It was a bloodbath in the comments sections.

Instagram users slammed Emily Ratajkowski for sharing photos of herself splashing around nude in a tub with her 1-year-old son, Sylvester.

“loml,” the model, who is in the midst of a divorce from Sebastian Bear-McClard, captioned her post Friday, using the acronym for “love of my life.”

Ratajkowski, 31, was fully naked in the pictures, using just her arms to cover her chest. Meanwhile, she drew a little heart over Sylvester’s butt.

Trolls flooded the post to call out the “My Body” author for taking and sharing the snaps, with some arguing that the mother-son moment should have remained private — or not happened at all.

“I would’t post a naked baby pic. Just post yourself, adult and stunning enough to get lots of likes ;-),” one person commented below the controversial post.

“Why on earth [are you] taking pictures with your naked son… What do you do just for ‘likes’ and attention,” a second person wrote.

“This is not okay. I don’t care how pretty you are,” a third agreed.

Others disagreed, calling the controversial photos adorable.

“It will be weird when your son sees these pics when he grows up 😒,” one netizen commented, with another writing, “That’ll have him in therapy for years to come!! 😳.”

“Putting a photo of your naked toddler son in a tub on the internet for all kinds of weirdos to see… smh,” yet another worried follower wrote.

“How on earth does she manage to sexualise bathing with you child. Or better yet why do we have to see it!?” one more asked.

But others defended Ratajkowski, including some of her famous friends, calling her a good mother and applauding the sweet moment.

“Love this so much,” “Queer Eye” star Tan France wrote.

Fellow models Elsa Hosk and Irina Shayk, meanwhile, commented with heart emojis.

“The most beautiful post ❤️,” a fan gushed.

“@emrata the best mom. I’m only 19 but I aspire to be like you when I grow up,” another wrote.

“So gorgeous and sweet 😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️,” a third follower commented.

Ratajkowski shares Sylvester with Bear-McClard, from whom she filed for divorce earlier this month after the movie producer allegedly cheated on her.

In July, Page Six broke the news that Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard, 41, had separated.

“Yeah, he cheated,” a source claimed to us at the time, adding, “He’s a serial cheater. It’s gross. He’s a dog.”

The Inamorata designer had sparked breakup rumors earlier that week when she was seen without her wedding ring.

The now-estranged couple married at a courthouse in February 2018 after publicly dating for just one week. They welcomed Sylvester in March 2021.

While Ratajkowski has yet to officially address their breakup, she shared that she was “thinking about dating” again in a recent post on TikTok.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl isn’t the only celebrity who has been slammed this week for how they handle their child’s bath time: Coco Austin stirred controversy Thursday when she shared that she sometimes bathes her 6-year-old daughter in their kitchen sink.
