Though the photo was too cute, people couldn't help but comment on Maxi's outfit. One person wrote, "Cringe. You’d think her mom having all her issues would try and protect her daughter from having the same issues but in fact seems she’s doing the very opposite. Find healing so you don’t damage your children. Clearly this lifestyle didn’t work for her mother why curse your child as well. It’s sad when ppl w mental illness pass it to their child purposely," while another added, "Why is your 11-year-old wearing a corset?"

A third person exclaimed, "She’s 11! Good lord," while a fourth stated, "11 is still a child!!!!!"

However, some of the singer's supporters defended her from the mommy shamers.

"So many Karens here geez! No 11 year old looks like an 11 yr old today. We're not in the Brady Bunch years anymore, she looks fine. She's w her momma!" one reasoned, while another said, "Wow!! Both of you are so beautiful. And what a lucky girl she gets to wear her moms purses and clothes 😍."

A third user added, "She's mothering the way she Wants. No one asked anyone's opinions. She's with her mom and body guards."

The star was seen out and about in her pink dress.

"I really try not to to read the negative stuff," she told Yahoo Life's So Mini Ways. "People end up telling me, like, 'I can't believe that people acted so negatively to that.' I was like, 'Oh, c---. They did?' Because I just trained myself to see past it. I don't accept it, because if I'm putting something out with a positive intention, I'm keeping it positive and I'm not gonna let the naysayers have any input. It doesn't hold me back; it definitely doesn't. If anything, it makes me more driven and it's one of those things like, 'Oh, you're gonna like me. I'm gonna make you like me.' ... Even if people don't like you, the right people will."
