It's hard for celebrities to escape critisism for being too fat or too thin, and the latest familiar face to come under fire is former Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel.

The 43-year-old posted a picture of herself online wearing her 4-year-old daughter's pyjamas and the internet got very angry about it.

Bethenny posted the photo to her Instagram account with the caption: "This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"

The reality star has never been shy when it comes to talking about her slight figure - she has written several books including Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and The SkinnyGirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life. She also created the Skinnygirl cocktail company.

But the PJ image seems to be a step too far for many - it's already attracted hundreds of comments, many of which criticise Bethenny for promoting a body-type that would be unattainable or unhealthy for many women.

"So glad you can fit into your daughters pajamas. You set the bar real high for those girls who have severe body issues. Congratulations on only caring about one person and that's you. Selfish and narcissistic at best," one Instagram user writes.

The image soon made its way to Twitter, where the general reception wasn't much better.

Bethenny took to Twitter on Monday to defend herself, claiming that she was just joking around with her daughter. She says when your child asks you to put on their clothes for fun, you do it.
