VICTORIA Beckham has been criticised for posting a shot of a model wearing an outfit from her latest collection.
Instagram account holders blasted her for sharing the image of “gaunt” model 17-year-old Chantal Habscheid.
One said: “Do not promote this, a lot of young teenagers will go the wrong way. It is wrong. You should know the average size, it is not hard to know.”
Another said: “Shame on you Victoria Beckham! She is soo skinny! Horrible.”
Others commented that the youngster looked like she needed to be hospitalised.
Chantal’s mum, however, came to Posh’s defence.
Jen Hall hit back saying: “Keep your hate and judgment to yourselves and let a young girl enjoy her new-found success.”
One of Chantal’s friends said: “Saying she’s ‘underweight’ and a ‘zombie’ is ridiculous.”
Beckham was accused of “promoting eating disorders” last year when she shared shots of models at one of the catwalk shows.
