Leni Klum’s (17) latest Instagram post sparked discussions. Heidi Klum’s daughter (48) is only wearing a black blazer by the sea. The jacket has slipped over Leni Klum’s left shoulder. The 17-year-old covered her bare breast with her hand.
“She’s too young for photos like this”, “All the clicks you don’t do” or “She’s a child! You shouldn’t let yourself be sexualized like that », read some negative comments below the post. Some question whether it is legal for 17-year-olds to share “such photos”.
The pictures were taken for the British “Rollacoaster” magazine during a professional shoot. Leni Klum adorns the cover of the magazine.
Anja Zeidler jumps aside Leni Klum
In addition to numerous criticizing comments, there are also many who protect the Klum offspring. One of them is the Swiss influencer Anja Zeidler (28). First she writes: “Wow, mega hammer picture. Girl power. ” Several social media users respond to this – with criticism.
It says: “Your motivation for this picture is completely out of place here. To fire something like this with enthusiasm is at the very bottom of the drawer. Girl power has absolutely nothing to do with it. “

“Stop sexualizing the female body”
But Zeidler argues against it and writes: “Oh God, these comments like ‘You don’t need that”. Guys, stop sexualizing the female body. ” Leni should just do what she feels comfortable with.
«My first thoughts on the picture of Leni Klum were: Wow, what a beautiful and expressive picture of a beautiful young woman. But others, on the other hand, only see a female breast in it, which is so bad, ”Zeidler explains her anger on Blick. “I think it’s amazing how breasts are still so strongly sexualized – sometimes even by women themselves.”
As a woman, you always have to expect that you will get strange looks or comments when you show yourself topless. For Zeidler it would therefore be good that children would learn that the female upper body is completely normal. “There is no fuss about it.” Not even with Leni Klum.
Leni Klum has officially been working as a model since December 2020. Since a partner shoot with her mum Heidi Klum for “Vouge”, Leni Klum has been walking the catwalks around the world regularly – and now adorns the “Rollacoaster” magazine. However, not with the picture for which she is being criticized, but with a photo in a pink plush dress.
