As we all know, Kim Kardashian isn't opposed to sheer clothing. Just last week during NYFW, the mother of two paired a leather blazer and black bandeau bra with a pair of sheer tights and see-through Yeezy platforms.

However, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star's latest fashion choice hasn't gone down too well with family friend "Aunt Shelli," who spotted a picture of the social media mogul wearing a see-through netted top without a bra underneath.

As a result, Kim posted the photo to Instagram but censored her nipples, explaining: "My Aunt Shelli called and yelled at me when she saw this pic. So @shellibird1 I blurred it for you!"

However, the star's decision to blur out her nipples has divided opinion, with some shaming the businesswoman for choosing to expose her body in the first place.

"No reason you should have your nipples out in public," one person wrote. "Thank God for those old school ladies with morals and values. Have some decency and class," another commented.

Total eclipse of the heart

Others took umbrage with the fact the mother felt the need to censor out her body parts at all.

"PSA - it's 2017!!! if showing your nipples is still frowned upon, we as people need to regroup," one commenter wrote. "They are nipples - literally EVERYONE has them! Showing nipples hurts NO ONE!!"

The reactions come weeks after she faced backlash following her nude photo shoot for Mert and Marcus art book in which she could be seen climbing a tree with stars covering her breasts.

In the comments section of her Instagram post of the snap, followers deemed her a "bad role model" and called out her insensitivity for uploading the picture amid the devastation of Hurricane Irma.
