Lukas Ikceinezrok posted: ‘WTF is that under her arms?’

Alex Bratcher said: ‘It was the 1970s, not the 1400s.. Women shaved their armpits then. It’s obvious his parents were hippies…’

Thousands hit back at the negative comments, defending her hairy armpits as ‘natural.’

Trisha Dowd said: ‘It’s so funny I am part of a generation that wants to “free the nipple”, but freaks out when women have hair in their armpits. #feminism.

Kalea Kiesser added: ‘Why does his mom have to shave? All women grow hair under their arms. This was a different time. This was normal. And women STILL DONT have to shave to appease you! She’s not gross.’
