Simmons’ care-free nature appears to have some fans feeling uneasy. She took to Instagram on Wednesday, Feb. 6, and posted a photo of herself on the beach, seemingly from when she visited Barbados a few days ago. In the photo, she rocked a green jewel-studded bikini with a pink floral kimono.
While posing for the ‘Gram, Simmons looked at the camera and slightly pulled back her kimono, partially revealing her nearly naked buttocks and thighs. She wrote in her Instagram caption, “Currently 💭 #BNB.”
The 31-year-old, who’s been accused in the past of clout chasing for posting what detractors deemed half-naked pics, was instantly met with criticism from a few fans.
“What in the Sin is going on 🤔?” a one person asked. “God bless you, you’re always naked never seen clothes on you.”
“This is not an image of a good role model… We Need More Role Models Which Are Modestly Dressed Not Naked,” another added.
“You’re once again giving in to duplication. The real essence of a woman it’s not in her a–,” a third fan added. “I guess you want to be looked at as sexy or as a paid however it don’t fit your character 😦.”
Other fans denounced critics and gawked over Simmons’ fit body.
“Dammmnnn!!! 😍👀🍑 come all the way through Miss Simmons,” fan added.
A second said, “Angela is body goals if you say different you hating! ❤️ You Ang!”
Simmons appears to be growing increasingly comfortable with her sexuality, although it doesn’t appear to be well received by fans. The star has dealt with slut-shaming before, especially after fans found out she was having her now-2-year-old son out of wedlock.
“They judged me. People are always going to be in my comments, ‘Where’s the dad?’ It’s nonstop. They’re always worried about my ring and if it’s on or off. They think they know me and they really don’t,” Simmons said during season 3 of “GUHH.”
“I heard a lot of chatter about me having a child out of wedlock,” she added. “I’m human and it happened. People are always going to have an opinion, and that’s just not who I am. I’m not your opinion.”
Simmons’ 2-year-old son Sutton Joseph’s father is Sutton Tennyson, who was recently shot and killed in November 2018.
