Happy birthday, Kylie?
“Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis found himself in hot water after he commemorated Kylie Jenner’s 25th birthday with a throwback snap of the pair celebrating her first legal birthday.
“Happy Birthday @kyliejenner!! I’m so proud of you and all your success!!” Francis, 49, captioned the image on Wednesday. “It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating your 18th birthday together [at the Casa Aramara resort in Punta de Mita, Mexico] ❤️🎉🍾💕.”
The pic showed him very obviously checking out Jenner’s famous backside while they hung out on a yacht.
The film producer conveniently cropped Jenner’s then-boyfriend, Tyga, out of the picture, which also featured the reality star’s friends, Stassie Karanikolaou and Pia Mia Perez.
Many commenters made wisecracks about Francis staring “at them cakes,” with one asking the entrepreneur directly, “You didn’t have a better picture — one where you weren’t checking her out?”
The father of twin daughters responded to the inquiry by reminding the fan that he’s “a man” and claiming that “all straight men always are looking at beautiful women.”
“That’s why I’m so successful,” Francis insisted. “Are you saying you hate God for making us this way?”
The filmmaker further claimed that “no other man is different or girls gone wild wouldn’t of [sic] made billions of dollars.”
Responding to another user whose comment was seemingly deleted, Francis said Jenner was “like my sister.”
“I think you’re the creepy one. Why would you even think that,” he fired back, noting that he “used to date” Jenner’s half-sister, Kourtney Kardashian, whom he tagged.
“I have three sisters too,” he added before clarifying that he “would never have sex with my sisters” because “that’s gross!”
Francis — who made a name for himself by being the Y2K-era party god who got young women to willingly expose their bare breasts on camera — has been accused of being a child pornographer, sexual assault abuser and domestic violence offender.
He did not respond to our request for comment regarding the aforementioned allegations, which were discussed at length in the April 2022 documentary, “Girls Gone Wild: Exposed.”
However, the movie producer specifying Jenner’s age in his Instagram shout-out drew its own fair share of jokes, with one person quipping, “At least she was 18! 👏 “
