Michael Bublé is in hot water with the Internet today after posting a photo on his Instagram account that offers commentary on a woman’s posterior.
Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, are vacationing in Miami and captured a woman in their hotel wearing short shorts. Lopilato captured the moment in a photo of her husband, which Bublé captioned by saying, “There was something about this photo lu took ,that seemed worthy of instagram.”
That commentary alone might have simply been in reference to her wardrobe choice, but the hashtags he added to the photo are what have some up in arms: #myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami #picoftheday and #beautifulbum.
Several press outlets are calling it body shaming, while the over 4,000 comments on this photo on Instagram are split between people complimenting the woman pictured and those coming to Bublé’s defense, many of whom seem to be doing so by insulting her.

On the flip side, sarahlynlaf writes, “It’s not the pictures that is body shaming, it’s the comments.”
