Katie Price left fans divided on Thursday when she shared a photo of herself and her six-year-old daughter Bunny cuddling up in a sweet mother-daughter snap.
Captioning her Instagram post: ‘Me and my gorgeous Bunny bops,’ Katie, 43, went make-up free in her post, and added a filter to the image, dividing fans in the process.
While many social media users leapt to doting mother Katie’s defence, others criticised her decision, leaving comments including: ‘Why are you filtering a little girl?’

Another wrote beneath Katie’s post: ‘Even Bunny is filtered,’ adding an eye-roll emoji, with a third telling the TV personality: ‘Katie… You are lovely without filters, try it and see what response you get.’
Others were quick to remind those commenting on Katie’s post to be kind.
One person wrote: ‘I don’t understand why people seem to seek Katie’s photos out to make rude, nasty comments.
‘I wonder what happened to Be Kind?! Imagine how she must feel reading them… honestly it’s awful, some people should be so ashamed.’

Supportive fans: Others were quick to remind those commenting on Katie’s post to be kind
It’s not the first time the doting mother has divided the opinion of fans after sharing a photo of Bunny wearing a full face of make-up.
In December, Katie shared a photo of her youngest daughter after another of her children, Princess, 13, had painted her face with her new make-up.
Stating that it was just for fun, Katie captioned the pictures: ‘My daughters today @officialprincessandre using her new make on Bunny Bops.’
While many believed that it was just two sisters playing dress up, others stated that it was ‘wrong’ to share the pictures of Bunny wearing so much make-up.
One said: ‘Wtf! As a mother myself that is wrong on so many levels.’
A second person agreed, and said: ‘Wow so wrong!! Don’t post stuff like this Katie what the hell is wrong with you.’

Another person wrote: ‘I’m sorry but that is just wrong.’
A different person added: ‘Oh god she is beautiful but making her up like this is horrendous, let her be a child.’
A month earlier, Katie posted a snap with her ‘mini me’ daughter Princess after the teenager had her make-up done by a professional for the first time.

Katie was sporting a heavy coat of expertly applied make-up, including a dramatic eye look with lashings of mascara and eyeliner.
Meanwhile Princess was also wearing a full face of make-up in more neutral tones for the sweet snap with her TV personality mum.
Both Katie and Princess’ hair was styled in a sleek blown out style, while they also donned matching bubblegum pink sweatshirts.
She wrote: ‘Katie I love you but why post this when you know you’ll get attacked for it after you done it to Princess it caused an uproar it’s no one’s place to judge or anyone else’s business but when you public you just give them ammunition to shoot you down’
Katie wrote alongside the photo: ‘Me and my gorgeous mini me daughter @officialprincess_andre.’
It was reported in March that Princess’ father Peter Andre disapproves of the former glamour model letting his daughter seem older than her years with heavy make-up.
According to New! Magazine, Peter, 48, expressed irritation at Princess getting too glam in her formative years.
