She obviously thought it was cute – a lot of people didn’t.

Kylie Jenner has been called out for dressing her 21-month-old daughter, Stormi, in a miniature version of the Versace gown she wore to the Met Gala earlier this year.

On Sunday, the world’s youngest billionaire shared images and video on Instagram, showing the toddler dressed to the nines in the purple-and-silver feathered number along with a matching wig as part of Halloween dress-up festivities.

While the post elicited loads of compliments including from celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Vanessa Hudgens, Cassie and designer Vera Wang, some couldn’t help but point out that the little girl looked uncomfortable and that it was more motivated by Kylie’s ego than anything else.

“You would dress your kid up as you, LMAO get a grip,” wrote one Instagram user.

“You can tell how uncomfortable she is and that she wants to cry. She’s a child and that’s what she should be. You’re stealing her youth!” lamented another.

“That poor baby. All she wanted to be for Halloween was Elsa [from Frozen],” someone else wrote.

One user went so far as to state, “Am I the only one that thinks this is abuse?”

Kylie (22) ignored the haters. “My baby!!!!!!!! I can’t handle this!!!!” she captioned the picture, adding a string of heart emojis.

She also posted footage on Snapchat of herself dressed as Madonna at the 2003 VMAs when she famously kissed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.  Kylie’s friend, Anastasia Karanikolaou, dressed up as Brit-Brit and they recreated the famous on-stage kiss.
