Singer Elle Varner was the target of social media backlash and praise after users accused the star of slut shaming girls.

Yesterday, the star posted a photo of a sign supporting girls’ rights to wear short shorts and bra strap-baring shirts without getting sent home because of supposedly distracted boys. Varner took exception to this, stating the reason for not allowing those kinds of outfits is to prevent early loss of innocence.

The singer calls out the recent feminist movements which embrace women’s personal choices to dress how they please. Amber Rose’s annual SlutWalk is one. The model launched the event to stand against derogatory labeling, sexual injustice, victim blaming and gender inequality, according to the cause’s official website.

“If you want to be loose or provocative then be that!” Varner wrote in part. “But do you really need to encourage young, innocent, impressionable girls to wear shorter shorts and show their bra straps in school!?”

She continues, “The average girl will be of child bearing age at 14 and boys of the same age experience completely natural raging hormones! Kids are curious and mischievous enough without us shoving sex down their throats.”

Varner concludes by asking, “Does it really hurt to encourage them to dress for success, focus on their free education, and preserve their innocence a little while longer?”

She later deleted the post but that did not mean the issue was over. Varner tweeted the following messages later that day.

It seemed that Varner had ceased talking about the topic but an hour and a half later she shared more thoughts.

Afterward, she received a barrage of tweets reacting on both sides of the issue.

Some did not agree with the “Refill” singer’s statements.

Others supported her opinion.
